Read the letter and tell us what you love about Northeast Ohio.

Chef Michael Symon, who's bringing a new , showed a little emotion and a lot of Northeast Ohio pride in a touching love letter to Cleveland.

The letter appeared in the The Huffington Post on Wednesday.

Raised in North Olmsted and a graduate of Lakewood's he reminisces about places all over the area:

I remember when I was young and I would spend my entire weekends with you and my grandfather: heading to the Eastside and staying with my grandparents; taking the rapid Downtown; shopping at the Westside Market with all its fabulous aromas of smoked meats and baked breads. It is here I found my true love for food, for going to the historic Terminal Tower to pick up my Grandma at Higbees and heading back east to cook split pea soup with smoked ham hocks and ribs.

What do you love about Northeast Ohio and its suburbs? Tell us in the comments!

We're lucky to have a hometown boy like Michael Symon rooting for Northeast Ohio. I'm so glad to hear that B Spot is coming to CF!

Michael Symon is a great asset to the Cleveland area. We may not ever have a winning sports team (I love Cleveland Browns) but we do have a winner in Michael Symon and he talks about being from Cleveland with pride. THANK YOU MICHAEL SYMON!
