To be on the “A-List” Don’s Pomeroy House must meet the same criteria required of any A-List’er: Overall excellence, creativity, exacting preparations, superior service and an atmosphere that is distinctive and inviting.
Landing a spot on the A-List involves multiple visits by one or more critic who contributes to and The Plain Dealer.

Contributing critics include Laura DeMarco, Debbi Snook, Nikki Delamotte and Marc Bona. This year’s compilation couldn’t have been completed without the steady hand of editor Michael Norman, as well as Bona’s further assistance. Together they contributed immeasurably to making certain every essential detail was in place.
