Originally branded as the Top Hat Drive-In, Sonic Drive In didn’t acquire its nationally recognized name until 1959—six years after its inception in 1953. Today, the franchise operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants. Sonic Drive In specializes in made-to-order American classics, including burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, and Ford Thunderbolts—which customers order and receive without ever having to leave their cars. Unique menu items include toaster sandwiches stacked on thick slices of texas toast as well as the brand’s signature tots and fresh limeades.
Sonic Drive In’s numerous awards include a 2011 Zagat survey ranking it among the top five fast-food restaurants in three categories: best value menu, best milk shake, and best drive-thru. The benevolent eatery has also donated more than $2 million to public schools throughout the country through Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.

One Flight Up's name refers to its shaded, dog-friendly balcony location, which overlooks the charming storefronts of Donnelly Street while cultivating relaxation with wind chimes and hanging plants. From 8:30 a.m. into the night, the café serves sandwiches, salads, desserts, and drinks suitable for each hour of the day. Breakfast begins with quiches, coffee, and espresso, and then lunchgoers can dig into tomato-basil bisque or a Harvest chicken-salad sandwich. At night, in addition to the food menu, the café's team cracks open beer bottles and pours wines that include Milton Park shiraz and Cortenova pinot grigio.
On weekend nights, live music wafts through the interior and out onto the balcony, twinkling with string lights. Mondays host open-mic performers, who demonstrate their abilities to take a microphone apart.
The"Cebiche" in Cebiche & Tapas Peruvian Dining is short for "Cehiches y Tiraditos," which means "Peruvian specialties." Indeed, the eatery brings Peruvian flavors stateside with entrees such as fish crowned with buttered capers, parsley, and worcestershire sauce. On the tapas end of the spectrum, Cebiche & Tapas spotlights everything from deep-fried calamari seasoned with Peruvian spices to sliced potato smothered with Huancaina sauce. Despite its Peruvian focus, the culinary team also crafts fusion options such as Chinese-style flamb?ed chicken with veggies, as well as chicken alfredo for kids and homesick gondoliers.
The chefs at Francesco's Italian Bistro don't just cook up classic Italian dishes. They also orchestrate purely American entrees to create a menu full of traditional and modern pastas and pizzas.

Chefs also build a range of pizzas, with mix-and-match toppings that let guests customize their pies to satisfy cravings or attempt to replace a malfunctioning frisbee.
