Revolver turns out a rotating menu of simple seasonal dishes that combine local and organic goods with atypical ingredients. Owner and chef Michael Bulkowski creates an atmosphere of fine dining without the risk of extended pinky-finger sprains with playful small plates such as the cinnamon-spiced duck meatballs with tempura squash and goat cheese ($8) or local rutabaga soup with cranberry-cashew pesto ($5). Latent hunter-gatherer instincts alight as forks harpoon the Flint Ridge Farms rabbit with niçoise olives, tomatoes, and fettuccine ($26) and dip bites of locally raised sirloin into sides of creamy polenta ($19). Toast confluent tastes with a libation from chef-selected wine and craft beer lists, and complement meals with a sultry glass of the Jezebel pinot noir ($12) or regal bottle of Bell’s Brewery’s Oberon summer ale ($6).
Pie connoisseurs ravish in the extensive noshing selection of Pagliai’s menu of specialty pizzas. Pagliai’s expert dough slingers toss original creations such as the Pagliai’s special, with sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, and onions ($17.25), to send taste buds on an ambrosial oven-baked adventure. Take a metaphorical leap over the pond to literally delight in the sauerkraut-stuffed German Delight, piled high with mouthwatering canadian bacon or sausage ($12). Sink biters into a garden-fresh, herbtastic vegetarian pizza, topped with ground-grown edibles, including mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and olives ($15.50). Other unique pies include such inspired geneses as the roast-beef special ($13.75) and the taco pizza, complete with a fiesta of border-hopping toppings to elevate tasters to a level of excitement usually reserved for the prospect of amnesty ($17.25). Pull up a chair to dine in, swing by to carry out, or call in to have a golden-crusted siring delivered to your doorstep. This deal is valid for any item on the specialty pizza section of the menu except for the Chef’s Delight.
Say it's 1 a.m., you've got some friends over, and everyone is hungry. As if the late hour doesn't complicate the situation enough, you've got one friend who wants tacos, another who's championing gyros, and you're craving pizza. Enter The Oasis Restaurant & Delivery: a small family of eateries that delivers late night and packs all of the aforementioned dishes onto one menu.
The menu's custom New York–style pizzas can be topped with anything from meatballs to sauerkraut, and its quesadillas and tacos overflow with fillings such as pulled pork and battered cod. There's plenty of Italian eats as well—including oven-baked pasta and stromboli—alongside a thoroughly American lineup of burgers, all-beef hot dogs, and fried chicken shaped like the 50 states. Recent additions to the menu include wings in one of 13 sauces and Oasis melts—grilled cheeses stuffed with corned beef, bacon, or barbecued pulled pork.
A mom-and-pop convenience store and deli for nearly two decades, South Side 6 caters to famished folks with a variety of Lebanese and American dishes, including grilled burgers. Sink carnivorous incisors into the double-decker Swiss Mushroom’s two quarter-pound beef patties, or take tongues for a joyride atop the cheesy Route 25, loaded with tomato, lettuce, onion, and pickle fixings. An order of fries heightens the sandwich like a deep-fried forklift, and a cold beverage (a $1.71 value) swishes away bun crumbs and mustard residue, leaving mouths as clear as an unused Etch A Sketch. The burger-and-fries combo (an $8.99 value) concludes with a piece of baklava, which is as complimentary as it is honey-soaked.
