At Bar Cara, chef Ryan DePersio uses rustic Italy as the inspiration for his upscale, mouthwatering meals, served in a modern and casual environment. Kick-start a culinary quest with an order of mascarpone polenta fries, served with gorgonzola sauce ($10), then envelop hug-loving taste buds in an embrace of slightly charred thin-crust pizza, such as the tomato basil with mozzarella cheese ($9). When overhead jumbo jets ring the northern hemisphere's primary dinner bell, meat-fanciers can opt for the veal Milanese with arugula and a cherry-tomato salad ($19). The impressive wine list at Bar Cara includes champagne and prosecco along with whites and reds, served both by the bottle and the glass. After dinner, let pastry chef Cynthia DePersio’s cupcake platter, which includes banana with caramel buttercream, carrot with cinnamon, and bittersweet chocolate with chocolate buttercream, take your endorphins on a magic platter ride. Glossy hardwood floors and exposed brick craft a warm and rustic aura around Bar Cara, and evenings are suffused with amber illumination from low lighting.

At Anthony's Cheesecake, owner Anthony Lauro crafts each and every cheesecake made-to-order from fresh ingredients, using treasured family recipes passed down to him by his mother and grandmother. The classically delectable New York–style cheesecake ($18 for 8”; $24 for 10”) delights naturally urbane palates with a buttery graham-cracker crust, and boston-cream cheesecake ($22 for 8”; $29 for 10”) charms chompers with its vanilla sponge-cake crust, ganache topping, and insistence that everything is "wicked." Diners unwilling to commit to one single dessert can find delicious compromise in an Oreo-cookie cheesecake ($20 for 8”; $29 for 10”) or chocolate-chip-cookie-dough cheesecake ($20 for 8"; $29 for 10"). And because our founding fathers declared the enjoyment of cheesecake to be an unalienable right, Anthony's bakes up sugar-free varieties to suit the sweet needs of the calorie-conscious in flavors such as italian ricotta, baked cinnamon apple, and blueberry.

None of the food at El Matador Mexican Deli comes from a can. Where it does come from is Puebla, Mexico—hometown of the chef, who has spent more than 50 years perfecting her family recipes. She uses the same methods of preparing meals today that she did when she first started cooking at age 12: making tortillas by hand, stuffing tamales with mole-covered chicken, and smothering chilaquiles in red or green sauce, depending on which color your eyes are. When it comes to sandwiches, guests can choose between classic tortas or the overstuffed cemita (a Puebla staple). The BYOB restaurant also serves beef, pork, and chicken taquitos for just 99 cents.

Red-hot wood embers smolder at the heart of Barbacoa BBQ's roasting pit, infusing the tender chicken and beef specialties with rich, smoky flavors. In the kitchen, cooks borrow traditional Caribbean and American culinary techniques to slowly seal in the flavors of each specialty dish. Chicken may be ordered half or whole to share with tablemates, as can racks of Barbacoa ribs. The kitchen staff also sears pork chops and new york steaks with just as much careful attention as when they read bedtime stories to each rib.
