"Places like this will help Sterle's survive, but more importantly help the neighborhood. We want to create a place that will be a destination, but also where people who have lived here their whole lives can come in and do their shopping."

Rick Semersky
Owner of Sterle’s and Redevelopment Leader


We're excited to bring you the first 3 Guys event of 2015 at one of the oldest restaurants and traditions in NEO - Sterle's Country House on East 55th Street. Make sure you are a part of another gathering of interesting people for the next 3 Guys event to connect, collaborate and converse. Join us on Thursday, January 29th for another gathering of people with stories to share.


3 Guys loves stories and Sterle's Country House certainly has a great story to tell. In 1954, Frank Sterle, an immigrant from Ljubljana, Slovenia, founded his Slovenian Country House with a small building on East 55th Street, a few picnic tables, and only one waitress who had to memorize the small menu since none had been printed, featuring traditional fare including wiener schnitzel, chicken paprikash, stuff cabbage, sausage and sauerkraut. Sterle's was known for not only great food, but world-class polka performances. After Frank's death in 1986, the restaurant was taken over by two immigrants from Italy and Germany. In 2012, Rick Semersky purchased Sterle's to keep alive this grand Cleveland landmark and tradition, one of the great examples of what makes Cleveland, Cleveland. Sterle's continues to uphold the history and traditions that make it great while ensuring its longevity for another 60 years.. Mixing a modern take on schnitzel, great bands and a large selection of craft brews, Sterle’s continues to be the landmark that it is while also becoming a favorite for a new generation of Clevelanders.


But merely maintaining a tradition is not enough for Rick Semersky, who is now spearheading a redevelopment and revitalization initiative in the East 55th Street and St. Clair Avenue. Two generations of Rick's family grew up in the neighborhood and Rick is actively breathing new life into the area. Rick is leading the HUB 55 mixed-use redevelopment plan that will bring a mix of artisans, makers, food purveyors, and entrepreneurs together in a truly collaborative environment. HUB 55 will include the following:

  • Cafe 55 (opening in early 2015)
  • Goldhorn Brewer (opening in mid-2015)
  • The Market (opening in mid-2015) (indoor food & artisans market)
  • Office Space

Rick's vision also includes other building redevelopments in the area. Our program that night will include Rick speaking about his redevelopment vision and plans for the area, as well as his passion for the area.

3 Guys is thrilled to be hosting our next event at this Cleveland landmark and hub of redevelopment and revitalization. To learn more about Sterle's visit www.sterlescountryhouse.com.


Registration is now open, so join us on January 29th and invite others to experience another example of NEO’s renaissance.
