The chefs at The Green Canteen prepare a menu of sandwiches, salads, and omelets made from scratch every day, complemented with freshly ground coffee and house-brewed teas. Early risers fill bellies for the day ahead by noshing on french toast hewn from local challah quarries or by digging into The Green, a signature omelet loaded with green peppers, baby spinach, and goat cheese, served with one of eight sides including sweet-potato fries. The romaine, pesto chicken, and sun-dried tomatoes of the tuscan salad glisten with house-made balsamic vinegar, and the Canteen burger quells carnivorous appetites with a 10-ounce Black Angus patty smothered in bacon, sautéed onions, and house barbecue sauce. Diners can also sip a cool glass of juice or pour a milkshake over an entree to cloak it in chocolate.

A fresh take on cooked-to-order burgers, Smashburger combines all the comforts of a well-stacked meal with the modest luxuries of expedient service and ample sit-down space.

The gaucho chefs at Greengrill Rodizio carve succulent portions of charcoal-roasted meats tableside as buffet tenders watch over up to 60 hot and cold dishes. Meat-bearing waiters cruise on a continuous circuit of the dining room to dole out unlimited slices of proteins, such as beef tenderloin, lamb, and suckling pig. Partnered patrons can hunt and gather with ease at self-serve stations that stock internationally inspired hot dishes including ponzu-marinated grilled snapper, Indonesian coconut rice, and cassoulet. Fight unseemly hot breath with cold salads, such as endive or fennel mushroom, or collect edible chess pieces at the fresh sushi bar. An assortment of desserts bring duos' meals to candied conclusions, including a german chocolate cake that sates sweet teeth faster than a taffy pull on the Autobahn. Though not included in today's deal, Greengrill Rodizio refreshes palates with a wide variety of soft drinks and wines from the full bar.
