Join us for our next Global Gourmet dinner at Empress Taytu Ethiopian Restaurant. Ethiopian food is known for its deep, savory flavor coming from exotic herbs and spices. Food is served family style and eaten without the use of utensils. Rather, diners tear off pieces of a flatbread called injera and use it to scoop up bites. There are many vegetarian/vega- friendly dishes as well.
Dinner begins at 6pm. Each attendee will receive an entree of their choice, and while adult beverages are available they must be ordered separately. This event is open to The Club's professional members only.
Our Global Gourmet series explores the many delicious ethnic restaurants that Cleveland has to offer. Each month, we will visit a different restaurant around the city and learn about the cuisines and cultures of the world through Cleveland’s vibrant food scene. These dinners offer an opportunity to network in a small setting with like-minded gourmands.
The CEO Dinner series is one of the Club's longest standing institutions. Each month our Professional Members have the opportunity to join the CEO of a local company for a private dinner. These events are intentionally limited to 12 people so everyone has an opportunity to share in a robust and inclusive discussion. Attendees can make connections not only with the CEO, but also with the other driven young professionals in attendance. The CEOs represent a wide range of companies and industries and whether big or small, public or private, well-known or niche, good conversation is had by all.
