Applebee's dispenses its brimming menu of American-inspired eats and low-calorie options in a casual dining atmosphere. Customers can commence feats with a pound of chicken wings slathered in one of four sweet or smoky sauces ($10.99), or with fried dynamite shrimp adorned with asian bread crumbs, spicy sauce, and the diamond ring you just awarded it with ($9.99). Clocking in at only 364 calories, teriyaki shrimp pasta ($14.99) tucks grilled seasoned shrimp into a teriyaki-sauce-coated bed of whole-wheat asian noodles ornamented with veggies such as sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, and red peppers. Basted in honey-barbecue sauce and rubbed with secret seasonings known only by Applebee's chefs and the government, honey-barbecue pork ribs ($21.99) tumble down tongues, joining a current of drafts, cocktails, or fountain drinks satiating thirsty patrons.

Capers' chef brings a contemporary approach to classic French technique and populates the lunch and dinner menus with locally sourced meat entrees, seafood, and desserts. The fixed-price dinner menu ($34) stars an ensemble of three courses, an appetizer, main course, and dessert. Alternately, the chefs can create a spontaneous menu catered to your preferences ($45 for three courses, $65 with wine pairings). On the individual-priced menu, garlic-and-lemon dressing pours over romaine lettuce to create the Capers caesar salad ($9), and horseradish sauce and red-bliss tomatoes accompany wild sockeye salmon in singing operatic arias ($23). Meanwhile, chefs hand cut dry-aged AAA strip loin, cook the meat to the desired temperature, then dress the 8-ounce steak with the latest runway fashions: smoked cheese curds, green peppercorn, and a handbag of fries ($25). For dessert, caramel hardens on top of rich custard to make crème brûlée ($7.50). Edibles pair with a variety of the sommelier-selected libations that helped Capers win a Wine Spectator award. Diners can also warm up at a wood fireplace, sip martinis at the bar, or rhythmically somersault to Capers' occasional live performances.

Crabby Joe's chefs conjure feasts from the eatery's menu of chicken, burgers, steak, and seafood that are inspired by the delectability of family home cooking. At dinner, piles of Tex-Mex chili or extra cheese adorn the load-bearing Joe's nachos, first cousin to the hearty loaded-cheese-fries starter. Entree options pile up to challenge one's decision-making speeds, including the 10-ounce new york striploin sprinkled with goat cheese in a brandy-peppercorn sauce or the grilled lemon-pepper salmon. Sweet treats cap off the meal with offerings such as the rich mud-mountain pie with its layers of chocolate and a crumbly topping. Customers sitting down for lunch can fortify for the day with the pulled-pork-topped texas barbecue burger or with pastas, salads, or steaming bowls of chili. Crabby Joe's also fosters a sports-friendly environment where the clink of frosty pints couples with a Leafs game or with broadcasts of soccer, football, baseball, or championship air-guitar events.

Hailed as "one of Canada's most intriguing, inventive and buzzed-about chefs" by the Financial Times, culinary wunderkind Luke Hayes-Alexander became the executive chef at Luke's Gastronomy six years ago, when he was just 15 years old. Relying almost exclusively on local ingredients, Hayes-Alexander designs artistically presented dishes that blend classic, modern, and neo-futurist techniques. These dishes pair nicely with the wine list’s signature chardonnays and cabernet francs, each of which is crafted from free-range grapes grown at the restaurant's own vineyards.

On the second story of a quaint building, the chefs of Tata's House of Pizza & Pasta churn out pies slathered in housemade sauce and decorated with toppings ranging from salami to fresh garlic. Along with a menu of bubbling pizzas, the staff slathers wings in honey-garlic and “Suicide” sauce, dress up burgers with bacon and cheese, and pile slabs of housemade lasagna onto plates with fresh-made garlic bread.

Joining the Kingston restaurant scene only a few weeks ago, Social Bar & Grill entices diners with a menu of contemporary fare designed by Chef Stephen Buchignani. Seafood dishes such as pancetta-topped scallops ($26.95; available after 5 p.m.) pair with local vegetables, red beet purée, and a port reduction to reward stomachs for not growling at the postman. For heartier appetites, cooks braise barbecue pork ribs ($16.95 for half rack; $22.95 for full rack) before grilling the meaty slabs in house-made sauce. Lighter bites include the vegetarian panini ($10.95) comprised of marinated portobellos, charred tomato chutney, and arugula, or two mini Yorkshire puddings ($9.95) stuffed with prime rib and Rosenborg blue cheese. Gourmands can also peruse Social's selection of draft beers, wines, and cocktails, and, for an indulgent conclusion, hand-catapult spoonfuls of sticky toffee ($9.95) into waiting mouths.
