Cafe Paris offers its patrons a taste of France, a place where people step into charmingly uncluttered neighborhood bistros to share plates and wine with friends, dining in an unrushed manner. French native Loris Compiano re-creates that vibe at Cafe Paris, crafting dishes such as toasted, open-faced baguettes with ingredients such as spicy tuna and curry shrimp, bruschetta topped with goat cheese, and roasted herbed potato with three homemade dipping sauces. He also helps complement meals with a list focused on organic, unsulfured wines from California and France.
Using fine Boar's Head ingredients, the sandwich mavens at Fat Boy's fashion massive portions of handheld nourishment. Sink into the soft-breaded benevolence of a Super BLT with cream cheese and avocado ($7.99) or a Hot Poppa sandwich’s strata of oven-gold turkey and monterey jack enlivened by jalapeño peppers and Flamin' Hot Cheetos ($7.49). Fat Boy's tests the tensile strength of a french roll with the Manwich, a medley of turkey, hot dogs, and Andy Capp’s chili-cheese fries ($7.99), as well as with the Rocky, which boasts corned beef, pastrami, and swiss and cheddar ($8.49). The eatery builds a quarter-pound of meats into almost all of its sandwiches, constructing cold deli favorites out of tuna, egg salad, and italian meats. Complimented by the salty crackle of chips and the sweet slurp of 20-ounce soft drinks, a midday meal at Fat Boys' leaves hunger pangs down for a standing eight count.

According to Zagat, the portions of breakfast plates at Broken Yolk Cafe can be "obscene"?although one could also consider them generous. Sometimes, these sizes are even considered a challenge. In 2010, Man Vs. Food's Adam Richman paid the restaurant a visit to tackle its infamous Iron Man Special: a 12-egg omelet, topped with chili and piled onto a 15-inch pizza pan.
Opened in 1979, Broken Yolk has spent decades fine-tuning its southwestern recipes?many enigmatically named for people such as "Betty" and "Tony G". Alongside steaming breakfast burritos and griddled buttermilk pancakes, the menu features nearly 20 omelets stuffed with fresh ingredients such as beef chorizo, avocado, and mushroom sauce. Shredded hash-browns are crafted from fresh potatoes, and the salsa is handmade each day. Until its official closing time at 3 p.m., Broken Yolk also serves sandwiches and half-pound Angus burgers. The local chain's six locations each feature their own private banquet room and secret underground passage to one of the other restaurants.
