The mission of NuevoCleveland is the same as that of Akron’s Nuevo – to be an exciting, casual and upscale Mexican restaurant. Our new building was produced from the ground up, incorporating the advantages of our unique location with its beautiful scenery and our Cleveland Inner Harbor neighborhood.

The unique features of the space lend themselves well to our design concept. The walls of windows bring in natural light, but more importantly afford a nearly 360 o view of the Cleveland Skyline, and our own Great Lake Erie. Plus with patios both upstairs and down, and firepits to chase away the evening chill, you can dine outside and soak up the one of a kind scenery. And we have staff members who are both veterans of our Akron location as well as Cleveland residents who are new to our team, but will each make your experience with us top notch, whether celebrating an event with a special meal, having a quick bite after a Browns’ or Indians’ game, or sipping a fresh margarita to enjoy the view.

Nuevo is rooted in the traditional, using several modern ingredients and techniques to create a whole new cuisine. The restaurant includes a tequila bar with a variety of artisanal tequilas, as well as fresh, handcrafted drinks. Our extensive tequila selections are paired with complementary food courses to create an unforgettable experience. Nuevo also offers a variety of wines, chosen to complement our cuisine, and an extraordinary beer selection, which includes our proprietary Perro Nuevo black lager, and many other Mexican and domestic options.

We feature a private meeting area upstairs for large parties or groups. Our outdoor patio space, modeled as an authentic Mexican plaza, makes it the most exciting outdoor dining experience in Cleveland. There are metered parking spaces adjacent to the restaurant, and valet parking is available for evening dining.
