CLEVELAND — Terrestrial Brewing Company, located in Cleveland’s Battery Park neighborhood, announced a new executive chef for its soon-to-be-completed restaurant.

Michael Lovano brings with him years of experience working in some of Cleveland’s favorite restaurant spots. He most recently was a chef at Chef de Cuisine at Summer House in Lakewood and worked for Michael Symon at Lola, formerly on East 4th Street.

The concept at the restaurant will be a gastropub. Terrestrial Brewing said he wants to bring something fun and exciting to Clevelanders, while still being approachable.

“Something that people of all ages will recognize but prepared in a way they have never had before. Chef Michael’s mantra is 'make it nice or make it twice' and it is something he plans on bringing to Terrestrial," the brewery said.

While the completion of the restaurant nears, guests can get a preview of his culinary creations during weekend brunches at the brewery.

The restaurant will open in two phases with the first phase including a full-scale restaurant with the ultimate goal of serving food seven days a week. The second phase of expansion will include an upstairs event space and a two-tiered deck offering views of Lake Erie and Edgewater Beach.

The restaurant is scheduled to open sometime in early 2022, the brewery's website says.
