Between its beer and its food, The Velo Fellow’s menu is almost as long as Britain’s history. It’s a fitting comparison, because the menu is chock-full of food and drink inspired by England and the domains its empire expanded to include. Specifically, the food roster showcases fish and chips—beer-battered whitefish—and shepherd’s pie. But there are also more inventive options such as falafel burgers. The food gets a boost from bottled beers such as Boddingtons Pub Ale, Highland Kashmir IPA, and Taj Mahal Premium Lager.
The chefs at the newly opened Grape Leaf cook up hearty Mediterranean cuisine that spans Middle Eastern to Greek specialties.

During Shake, Rattle, & Roll!, professional Elvis impersonator Scot Bruce accurately depicts The King during his prime by belting out hits from the 1950s and 1960s in classic Presley attire. Known for his cameo in Faith Hill's "Let's Go to Vegas" music video, Bruce impresses audiences with an uncanny resemblance to Presley that encompasses the same pompadour, shared facial characteristics, and the ability to power a propeller-less helicopter by swiveling his hips. A four-piece band equipped with vintage instruments joins Bruce in successfully recreating Elvis's journey from his humble beginnings at Sun Records.

The wine list is equally varied, making it easy to find pairings for all types of cuisine.
21 East serves a number of cocktails that's easy to remember: 21. Its libation menu also catalogs 12 rotating draft beers and 25 bottles of wine. Perhaps the only thing flowing through the restaurant as profusely as the drinks is the sense of local community. 21 East showcases the talents of local artists who perform between exposed brick walls and under blue-tinted light.
