Tremont Restaurant with Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) — The Fat Cats restaurant in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood is about to take the spotlight.

The restaurant will be featured next Friday, May 27, on Diners, Drive-in and Dives on the Food Network.

Co-founder Ricardo Sandoval told FOX 8 they were contacted in December that they were finalists for the show. Soon after, Guy Fieri brought his crew to film at the restaurant in February.

The show asked Sandoval to give them their top 10 most popular dishes to choose from. The show then chose two: chicken arroz caldo and pork banh bao.

He said working with the show was great and they made real friendships with the crew during their hours on set.

Sandoval said the restaurant has been in business since 1997. He co-owns the restaurant with Tim Verhiley.

They recently completed minor renovations to the business, rejuvenating the washrooms and changing the floors in the kitchen.

Fat Cats is now the oldest restaurant in Tremont, Sandoval said.
