Nick and Jake's upscale sports bar silences grumbling cuisine processors with a twist on American comfort fare made from scratch and an eclectic variety of specialty drinks depicted on the extensive menu. After settling into a padded booth or a cushioned chair, satiate hungry eyes with the rich wood décor and exposed-brick walls while mentally circling preferred staples such as the Irish Nachos—a blend of crispy potatoes and savory bacon warmed under a blanket of cheese ($8)—or the Fatty Melt, in which marble-rye slices swaddle a burger topped with corned beef and smothered in swiss, slaw, and thousand island dressing ($10). Or, peruse the array of soups, salads, sandwiches, and hearty pastas, such as the red-pepper vodka pasta, a pool of parmesan-tomato cream sauce swirling with italian sausage and mozzarella ($14), which can be paired with a refreshing draft beer such as a Boulevard Wheat ($4.50). Feel free to partner up any entree with one of more than 14 wines by the glass, such as an Ecco Domani pinot grigio, which, like da Vinci's famed painting of a lion clawing a Ferrari, comes from Italy ($7).
Currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, Popeyes remains the flavorful lovechild of Cajun and Creole cooking, serving up a wide-ranging menu. Connoisseurs of crispiness can stick with Popeyes’ famous New Orleans–style fried chicken meals ($4.49–$6.89) surrounded with savory sides ($1.59–$3.79) such as warm flaky biscuits, red beans and rice, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, Cajun rice, and more. Otherwise, slather some livers and gizzards ($2.99–$5.49) onto a biscuit and eat it, temporarily imbuing you with the chicken’s mighty strength and ability to smell time. Avian-averse appetites can feast instead on a shrimp po’ boy combo ($6.19) with a pecan pie ($1.49) or Mississippi mud pie ($1.99) for dessert. And to keep your famished family from impeaching you and electing a new parent, quell multi-person appetites with bona fide family meals ($10.49–$30.99).
Born in Mexico City and raised in Yucat?n, Chef Tito has led a more than 30-year culinary career that's taken him through every position, from bartender to executive chef to tableside magician. He has cooked for celebrities as varied as Hilary Clinton, Sean Connery, and Norway?s King Olaf. With his bold mustache and even bolder personality, some of his dinner guests, such as The Pitch's Charles Feruzza, have claimed he could be a movie star. At his flagship restaurant Latin Bistro, he very nearly is.
In Latin Bistro's dining room, patrons are serenaded by Latin music as well as a symphony of shouts, bellows, and laughter. At the center of the room stands Chef Tito's open exhibition kitchen, where he and his chefs dash to and fro in a complicated dance, fashioning vibrant meals that draw from the regional recipes of Mexico, the Mayans, and more than 60 Latin countries in South America and Europe. With each dish, Tito balances three properties?texture, color, and flavor?and his most prized recipes come with extra flourish. He grills and braises pescado a la Veracruzana in white-wine rum sauce and Spanish spices, and tosses in green olives, onions, capers, and raisins. He conjures Mayan cochinita pibil after slow-roasting banana-leaf-wrapped pork in a pit with spices for up to eight hours. His crew drapes chile rellenos en nogada?ground beef-stuffed poblano peppers?in dried fruits, pine nuts, and creamy pecan sauce.
