Celebrate three of Cleveland’s cultural gems with a progressive dinner around University Circle. Begin with passed hors d’oeuvres at the Western Reserve Historical Society while discovering Northeast Ohio’s role in automobile design or the historic luxury of high fashion. Then, take a short walk through Wade Oval to the Cleveland Museum of Art, where you’ll explore the galleries and sample several small plates from Provenance, the museum’s locally sourced, globally inspired restaurant by Chef Douglas Katz. End the evening in style with stunning autumn views and a variety of desserts under the stars in the beautiful Woodland Hall and Geis Terrace at Cleveland Botanical Garden.
