When defining American cuisine, many people think of classic diner food, such as burgers and fries. But the chefs at Edison Place have a broader outlook: They incorporate the flavors and recipes from nations across Europe that have influenced American eats, creating New American dishes straight out of the figurative melting pot. They bread and fry pork cutlets to create the mushroom-slathered jägerschnitzel, and stir braised beef with onions, carrots, and paprika into bowls of hearty goulash soup. Crab cakes mingle with horseradish dill vinaigrette, and the crispy mushroom tart is a flaky puff pastry topped with a blend of fontina, ricotta, and parmesan cheeses along with caramelized onions, speck ham, and truffle oil. The menu's pan-European flavors pair with local beers, such as Brooklyn lager, and imported brews such as Leffe Blonde.

Danny Boys Pub & Restaurant welcomes a variety of patrons, from diners looking to dig into shepherd's pies to football fans sidling up to stools to watch the game in the company of friends and expertly poured pints. The chefs bake traditional and whole-wheat Irish soda breads onsite daily—serving the sliced results as complimentary sides—simmer soups in homemade stock, and prepare specialty entrees that include fresh calf's liver sautéed with bacon and onions. Behind the bar, Giants flags flutter between flat-screen TVs and stained-glass installations in the ceiling bathe mixologists in a colorful glow, energizing a lineup of taps that houses brews from Stella Artois to Chicago-import Goose Island Honker's Ale. A separate dining room cushions patrons with tufted booths as they scan the walls for vintage-style Guinness posters and a rare glimpse of the ghost of Arthur Guinness.

Jorday Rivera's passion for hip-hop and Latin dance infuses her classes with rhythmic energy during each meeting at her namesake studio. Jorday's interest in dance began at a young age when her parents took her to the bustling streets of Broadway to watch colorful stage productions and the spontaneous musical numbers that would take place during each rainstorm. By the time she reached adulthood, Jorday had garnered extensive experience in mambo, salsa, cha-cha, and hip-hop disciplines and had danced side by side with the likes of Eddie Torres and Mario Diaz. This accumulation of hip-swiveling savvy eventually led Jorday to cultivate a love of teaching, finally opening her own dance studio in 1997. Today, the studio houses a variety of dance classes, from modern and hip-hop to belly dancing and Latin, led by a cadre of instructors trained in a panoply of styles.

Crimson hues edged in accents of neon orange and ice blue pervade the interior of Lava Lounge. Amid the low lights and bleeding colors, guests lounge on long benches and pull from long hookah hoses. Their exhalations send out swirls of smoke in flavors such as white peach, watermelon, or dominican mango. Between puffs, parties can sip bubbly Blue Moons and Stellas or make a night of it with bottle service. Bartenders also mix long island iced teas, cosmopolitans, and other cocktails behind a bar whose fuchsia lights transition into sky blue.

Tall grasses line the walls behind Lava Lounge's black couches, giving some of the smoking area a more pastoral feel. Patrons can also melt into one of Lava Lounge’s auto-massage chairs, pulling from a hookah while the chair kneads away muscle strains caused by relaxing too hard.

No matter what the calendar reads, it’s always October in spirit at Manor Oktoberfest, a German-style eatery that channels Munich’s lively fest of the same name. Owner Mark Gallagher serves Bavarian fare that ranges from traditional appetizers—including smoked black forest bacon and pierogies—to hearty entrees such as lamb shank and Hungarian schnitzel. It wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without a lot of beer, and the restaurant carries more than 30 varieties. Draught beers, including Hofbrau Original and Franziskaner Weissbier, come in half-liter or one-liter mugs, or in a two-liter boot if you’ve also lost one shoe.
