Though you may not garner it from the name, the menu at Bagelworks goes far beyond their eponymous doughy diameter. Onion and honey whole-wheat bagels, made onsite, hold up on their own with a schmear of cream cheese but work just as well bolstering deli fare such as house salads, eggy breakfast dishes, and fish platters. Other items on the expansive menu include grilled cheese, pastrami paninis, and pancakes.
Orange Leaf's self-serve frozen-yogurt stations tempt dessert lovers with a line-up of more than 55 flavors, including gluten-free and no-sugar-added options, and 35 toppings. Tongues can traipse across timeless frozen-yogurt flavors such as classic tart, cherry, and chocolate, or less-trodden tastescapes such as peanut butter, red velvet, and gingerbread ($0.49/oz.). Then guests bedeck desserts with mounds of toppings, adorning their yogurt with such options as marshmallows, chewy mochi, and fresh fruits similar to those worn by generals in the Oompa Loompa army. The staff weighs completed creations on a scale before guests dive into their edible masterpieces spoon first.
When Dean Lavallee opened the first Park Avenue BBQ in 1988, he had one lofty mission in mind: to serve the best barbecue ever made. Despite the seemingly impossible nature of his goal, he and his team continue to rise to the challenge, dry-rubbing their meats to smoke and char-grill on-site. They use all-natural, grain-fed, domestic pork for their traditional and Carolina-style barbecue pork—pulled by hand—and only use fresh, never-frozen ribs that are smoked daily over hickory. As diners chow down on hearty homestyle sides, seafood platters, or buffalo wings tossed in one of six sauces, they can admire the dining room's pictures of their city's most prominent people, places, and robot mayors.
Park Avenue BBQ arranges their meats into fun, hearty dishes such as the Dempublican sandwich, which combines smoked pork and beef brisket separated only by cheese and bacon to create a sizeable sandwich that the team has dubbed "porkalicious". They whip up Funnybonz, which look and taste like miniature ribs, using tender, lean pork that's prepared by cooking up regular ribs beneath a shrink ray. In 2008, their dedication to each dish caused Cityvoter's users to name Park Avenue BBQ the best barbecue in town.
