Diners can browse the menu for starters such as vegan tempeh tots served with spicy sriracha ketchup ($6) or meaty pork-belly sliders with jalapeño slaw ($8). Entrees include the mac ‘n’ cheese, which deepens a four-cheese mélange with chilis, garlic, and hungarian slaw ($12.50). Lemon-thyme tofu kebabs give vegetarians the spit-roasted experience, buoyed by grilled vegetables and rice and beans ($11.50).

Explorers Club

Explorers Club's cozy, 100-year-old brick exterior lends a deceptively comfortable face to the restaurant's constantly experimenting kitchen. Owner Tracy Studer and Chef Dan Varga—both veterans of the late Harold Smith's Gloria Café—root their eatery's fare in playfully updated Latin American food such as chorizo sliders and plantain-topped burgers. Yet, Varga constantly flexes his culinary muscles with unusual menu additions such as his chili-citrus-flavored vegetable lo mein. Monthly menus jet around the globe—614 Magazine notes that after deciding on "a country or cuisine, [Varga] spends months researching the ingredients, history, and flavor profiles, and then experimenting in the kitchen," turning out tributes to Germany, Spain, and his ancestral Hungary. An impressive range of vegan and vegetarian options makes use of soy-based tempeh and tofu, catering to animal-loving humans and self-hating venus flytraps.
