$10 for $20 worth of anything on the menu

The backlit wall behind the bar melts from yellow to blue as twosomes grasp sandwiches—perhaps italian paninis with Boar’s Head roast beef and pesto mayo or veggie wraps with balsamic vinaigrette—and raise their breaded hands in a muffled, saucy high-five. Friends sip Shock Top Belgian White or smoky, cherry-tinged glasses of red wine while resting on a cushy sofa swathed in deep-purple suede, prompting a recollection of the year they spent Halloween as Prince and colorblind Elvis. The kitchen is open Tuesday–Friday from 11:30 a.m.–8:30 p.m.<p>

Blue 82

From lunch until late at night, Blue 82's contemporary lounge fosters delicious moments of synesthesia. Bartenders artfully decorate glasses by pouring bold strokes of specialty drinks such as bright green-tea martinis or Cha Cha mojitos with hints of raspberry, mimicking the green-to-magenta fade of the illuminated wall behind the bar, which doubles as a stoplight for overaggressive segway riders. More than 15 varieties of scotch add distinguished flair to evenings spent on a velvety sofa, and the tunes of live music or those spun by weekend DJs permeate aural canals with mellifluous sustenance. Slider burgers wedded to bacon and Boursin cheese or chicken flatbread pizza with sweet-and-spicy brazilian mustard treat palates to comfort food augmented by gourmet overtones, like a Stephen Foster melody played on a Stradivarius violin. The eatery also presents daily specials, and induces or nurtures merriment by hosting parties.
