Restaurants not too far from Oberlin, Ohio

Going out to visit my son at Oberlin College - looking for dining options other than the restaurants right in town; doesn't need to be fancy but would like it to be a little special. Thanks for any suggestions.

Well, it's definitely nothing special but seeing you're from NYC, perhaps you'd like to take in Donna's Diner on Middle Ave in Elyria which was just featured in a series in the New York Times. I'll try to think of some more & come back later.

If you're willing to drive up to a half hour each way, you also could check out the restaurants in the vicinity of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

E.g., Don's Pomeroy House in Strongsville.

A favorite of mine is Chez Francois in Vermilion or the more causal Touche upstairs. The restaurant is located right on the water and the food and service is impeccable. Vermilion is about a twenty minute drive from Oberlin.
