Iconic Sokolowski's May Close Permanently

(Cleveland) - One of Cleveland's most iconic restaurants is in danger of closing permanently, but maybe not.

A report from ideastream on Tuesday said that the home of Polish and American comfort food in Tremont would be closing permanently. They have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic. Owner Bernie Sokolowski said his health, as well as the value of the land where the restaurant sits, are contributing factors to a decision to close.

However, 3 News contacted Bernie Sokolowski, and he told them not all is said and done, and that the family would have a statement in coming days.

Sokolowski's has been owned by the same family since 1923. Their cafeteria-style menu includes things like Salisbury steak, chicken paprikash, stuffed cabbage, and pierogis. The walls are filled with celebrity photos from visitors, including President Bill Clinton.
