Located inside The Hotel Hanford, Savoy Restaurant & Lounge cultivates a posh, inviting atmosphere with bronze-leather club chairs flanked by plum-colored satin pillows and ambient-lit dining quarters. In the mornings, eggs, fruit-speckled pancakes, and upscale breakfast staples fuel hotel patrons and passers-through for the day ahead. In the evening, plates brim with upscale American cuisine complemented by scores of wines from Tuscany, Sonoma, and Spain, whose disparate life stories make for interesting conversation pieces when there are no humans interested in talking. While enjoying diverse wines cozied up in chic deep-purple chairs at the full bar, patrons dig into dishes of butternut squash ravioli with bacon, almonds, and pecorino cheese as they bask in their environs' rich, metallic tones.

Although it now has more than 430 locations in 28 countries, Hooters wasn’t always welcomed by the public. In fact, when it opened in October 1983 in Clearwater, Florida, the founders of the restaurant were “quickly detained for impersonating restaurateurs,” according to the company's website. But the restaurant was able to prove it was more than just a pretty face—that it was serious about serving tasty American food and frosty brews—and its popularity exploded in the decades to follow.

Amid its beach-themed vibe and flat-screen TVs, Hooters still fuels appetites with original chicken wings, burgers, sandwiches, and fresh salads. Of course, nobody carries those casual eats and icy pitchers better than the Hooters girls. To complement their friendly smiles, their uniforms harken back to the ones the original waitresses wore in 1983: orange hot shorts and white tank tops with the emblematic owl on the front—though that owl has lost its Lionel Richie perm.

The epicurean engineers at Durty Nelly's rouse weary palates with dishes from an extensive menu of Irish classics and frothy brews. Cheer on quarreling sausages in the bangers and mash plate ($10.95), or embrace the corned beef and cabbage dish ($12.95), which is more tender and juicy than a hug from the Kool-Aid Man. The fish 'n' chips platter beer-batters Icelandic cod filets and serves them with a heap of fries and coleslaw ($12.95), and 25 handhelds such as the corned beef sandwich ($7.75+) and the avocado, bacon, and cheese burger ($8.95) compete for attention with 10 draught beers under the luminous glow of big-game beaming flat-screen TVs. To complement each bite, Durty Nelly's provides a slew of weekly entertainment and invites bar farers to sip on discounted brews during happy hours Monday–Thursday.

Spark Woodfire Grill features contemporary American cuisine with an Italian twist. As the restaurant’s name suggests, Spark's chefs use woodfire specialty cooking equipment to prepare their dishes, or they yell at them until the dishes become cooked by shame.
