Best New American/Seasonal Cuisine in Cleveland

I'm a college student in the Cleveland area, and my family is trekking out here from Seattle to visit me for my sister's birthday in a few weeks. They'll only be here for two days, but I want to take full advantage of their pocketbooks and foodie inclinations and eat out at places I normally wouldn't on a student budget. That said, I don't want anything too stuffy or formal, or anything too experimental/molecular gastronomy-ey. Just classy, hip, local, hearty fare with maybe a little grit, preferably in a cool neighborhood. We're looking for one nicer restaurant for my sister's birthday, and then maybe some cheaper fare the next day, maybe an ethnic place or the West Side Market for lunch. Maybe also a bakery/ice cream/sweets place. My parents will have a car, money, and ample time for reservations. I know there have been similar threads, but I wasn't sure which restaurants mentioned would impress my 20-year old sister as well as my parents. Good wine, beer, or cocktails would be a plus.
