The rustic interior of Mexican Post sets the tone for the restaurant's menu and hourly Battle of the Alamo reenactments.

Pasquale’s Ristorante Italiano crafts house-made pastas, entrees, and decadent desserts for an elegant, old-world menu of Italian favorites. A clutch of pan-seared scallops and shrimp spill over an umami-laden porcini risotto ($20.95) like a gift from a mermaid secret admirer left on the shore, and boneless short ribs with a port-wine glaze recline on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes ($20.95). Light-as-air gnocchi hopscotch through bolognese sauce studded with mascarpone cheese squares ($13.95). A slice of Nonna’s cheesecake, finished with raspberry puree, puts a ricotta exclamation point at the end of savory meals. Homey floral arrangements and warm, golden walls meet sleek booths and a streamlined full bar in Pasquale's dining room, suiting moods ranging from casual to extravagant. Reservations are recommended.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.

Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.

Mirchi, a vast Indian eatery that seats 150, specializes in hyderabadi dhum biryani, a hearty rice dish that draws on both Mughlai and Andhra cuisines. Cooked via dhum—steamed over coals—the biryani sandwiches feature fillings such as steaming vegetables and traditional goat meat nestled in between layers of long-grained basmati rice. To complement biryani, the kitchen wraps crepe-like dosas around fragrant potatoes, roasts chicken in a clay tandoor, and delicately spices curries such as the chickpea-powered chana masala. Paneer-fried rice and other Indo-Chinese cuisine lend international flair to the menu like a UN meeting agenda written in glitter and puffy paint. Staffers can spice dishes to customer specifications to prevent undesired eye watering.

Philly Soft Pretzel Factory's bakers juggle snakes of dough, artfully twisting them into the familiar shape of pretzels. They sprinkle hearty crystals of salt over the trays, then stick their fresh-made snacks into the oven. As soon as the pretzel dough turns golden brown, the bakers retrieve their warm and soft creations and serve them alongside savory dips of mustard or cheese. In addition to traditional pretzels, the factory's pretzel dough surrounds all sorts of stuffings, from grilled hot dogs to all the ingredients of a classic philly cheesesteak.
