Nico's Steak & Chop House is an upscale steakhouse owned by retired NFL pro Robert “Griff” Griffith and his wife Amethyst. Huddle inside cozy booths to sneak a peak at the new Griffs Smokehouse menu and kick off consumption with small plates of Korean short-ribs ($9) and hand-breaded calamari ($9). Sandwich earls can majestically munch on a turkey club ($10), while more adventurous carnivores can try the 12 oz. New York strip steak ($27) and herb-crusted lamb loin ($28). Feed fish-or-feather urges with the pan-roasted salmon ($26) or the Cajun chicken breast ($19), or try the roasted eggplant burger ($12) to send a message to potential vegetable uprisings. "Griff" Griffith is often around the restaurant to sign autographs and call audibles on orders—bring a pen and a Refrigerator Perry-esque appetite and tackle the satisfyingly smoky fare of Nico's Steak & Chop House.

Credited with inventing the chicken sandwich in 1946, Truett Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A in 1967, gaining fame with the original chicken sandwich and crispy waffle-cut fries. Breaded by hand, each boneless breast fillet tumbles in special seasonings before 100% refined peanut oil endows a crispiness as golden as the heart of Eugene Levy. Though tender fowl available in sandwich or nugget form fills out the majority of the menu, Chick-fil-A also carries an assortment of breakfast sandwiches, side salads, and desserts.
