Qdoba's burrito baristas handcraft a catering menu of Mexican-inspired cuisine, customizable with a panoply of fresh ingredients for a taco, nacho, or burrito bar. Qdoba's culinary crafters craft succulent fillings for burritos, tacos, nachos, and quesadillas, including protein-packing choices, such as slow-roasted pulled pork, adobo-marinated grilled steak or chicken, and spiced shredded or ground beef, with vegetarian options also available. Taste the gooey flavor accents of the signature queso sauce, a three-cheese blend with roasted poblanos, tomatoes, and jalapeños, the pinto or black beans simmered in cumin and onion, or the creamy, hand-smashed guacamole that's ideal for filling up Queen Elizabeth's diamond-studded guacamole chalice. Tortilla chips with salsa bar and desserts complete each catered event, and customers can opt for burrito-boxed lunches and any add-ons.

When La Dolce Vita Bistro's chefs aren't serving the crowds of diners during Little Italy's annual Feast of the Assumption Festival, they craft iconic Old-World cuisine for the restaurant's diners. The chefs dedicate themselves to the dishes' original flavors by ordering entire bales of Italian parsley and importing plum tomatoes through the Atlantic Ocean's subterranean tunnels. These ingredients add a distinctive Italian essence to the menu of oven-crisped pizzas, freshly blanched pastas, and sautéed veal tenderloins. Outside the kitchen, the atmosphere gets a dose of Italian essence from classic Italian films that, according to Gayot, are screened against the dining room's back wall. While taking orders, servers can help diners complete their meals by recommending wines from the 200-bottle-strong list.

Euclid Tavern combines an extensive menu of American fare with neighborhood bar charm, enhanced by live entertainment throughout the week. The chef grills up an impressive array of burgers, including the third-pound Tavern burger ($8) and the Pizza burger ($7.50), which, like Disney's remake of Dawn of the Dead, melds together the best of two disparate worlds. While the Italian press's ($8) salami and pepperoni dance the tarantella with onions and provolone on a garlic-bread stage, various sauces ranging from Cajun rub to garlic parmesan slather a dozen wings ($8). Euclid Tavern entices patrons with daily specials, such as $0.75 tacos on Tuesdays, and enlivens the casual atmosphere with assorted events, including live bands, comedy nights, and interpretive dances about the U.S. Constitution.

Shticks’ menu features a cast of fresh vegetables starring in healthy productions of hand-held edibles and homemade soups. Soft Lawash bread swaddles baba and tabbouleh as they nap on a bed of roasted red-pepper hummus and sprouts in the Red Sea wrap ($5), and far-out falafel ($5) entrances taste buds with a chickpea army and a giant black-light poster of a pita. Alternatively, meaty options such as Ruthies' roast-beef melt ($5.75) and Marvs' turkey-pastrami melt ($5.75), slathered with stadium mustard and mozzarella cheese, allow customers to indulge carnivorous impulses. For the summer months only, Shticks will be serving up cups of Spanish gazpacho ($3.25/cup) as a cool treat during warm afternoons and raging city fires.
