Before it became the set of one of the most polarizing television series finales of all time, Holsten's was a classic diner and ice cream parlor. Now, it still serves its homemade ice cream and house specials—two burgers, made with beef chopped that day—but camera flashes aren't uncommon, especially near one particular booth. People who sit there tend to order onion rings, because that's what Tony Soprano ordered just before the show ended.

The staff doesn't mind the extra attention that The Sopranos fanbase showers on their restaurant. In fact, they sell T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase, "The Final Episode." But they also stay true to their roots, whipping up diner fare from BLTs to grilled cheese and double-decker club sandwiches. The dessert menu features ice cream in flavors such as vanilla, black raspberry, and butter pecan, all of which can be piled atop brownies or bananas to make a sundae. There's also homemade candy, including truffles, assorted chocolates, and seasonal sweets more appetizing than autumn leaves dipped in honey.

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.

At Taste It Again, servers cart out feasts of tropical offerings, from crispy, pan-fried whole snapper fish to tender morsels of spicy jerk chicken with red beans and rice. Like the U.N.’s biweekly potluck, Jamaican cuisine represents a mingling of diverse cultures with its dishes of curried goat and stewed oxtail, salted cod with ackee fruit, or potatoes with Dhalpuri roti. The savory eats pair with BYOB beverages or the kitchen's own ginger beer.
