Edible Arrangements' more than 50 fresh, artful fruit baskets combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy edibility of fruit. The sweetery's designers stud the Delicious Daisy, a bouquet of sliced honeydew, pineapple, and cantaloupe, with strawberries and strings of grapes that can double as a 25th-anniversary gift for a Smucker's jam heiress ($35). Decadent, gluten-free layers of white and semisweet chocolate coat fruit in a 12-piece box of hand-dipped strawberries and bananas ($25). Customers can also put today's Groupon toward a larger centerpiece, such as the Melon Delight, a decorative spray of watermelon wedges, pineapple daisies, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, and double-dipped bananas sprouting from a watering can ($76). The preservative-free treats are all handcrafted at the apex of freshness, readying hand-dipped dainties to be hand-shoved into eagerly awaiting mouths.
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.
By picking fish caught from the Chesapeake Bay, the Pacific, and the tropics, Edge of the Ranch, formerly known as Nugent’s Firegrille, gives its menu the depth and variety it needs to reflect classic American culinary sensibilities without growing stale or predictable. The chef mixes up the menu with choices such as line-caught swordfish, organic-fed salmon, and baked Maine lobster. Edge of the Ranch supports sustainable-fishing methods while offering guests the healthiest seafood possible. Alongside the fresh fish, the staff also fire grills Angus steaks—such as filet mignon and flat iron—and all of the eatery’s fare can be paired with draft beers, signature martinis, fine wines, and sea shanties.
