A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.

While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

Boneless chicken doused in a buttery cream sauce. Skewered minced-meat kebabs fresh from the tandoor oven. Spinach soaked in a creamy, spicy curry. Led by head chef Syed M. Ahmad, the culinary team at Delhi Kabab House specializes in these North Indian homestyle dishes, which they whip up fresh to order. With handmade art adorning its amber walls, the eatery's softly lit dining room hosts each vegetarian and meat-laden meal. After feasts, guests 18 or older can savor more than 50 flavors of hookah tobacco, such as hazelnut, blueberry pancakes, and even one called Scooby Snax, which visitors presumably receive after they unmask the ghost haunting the tandoor.

When mobile eatery The Little Black Truck closed its doors, it left behind a loyal following addicted to its slow-roasted Carolina-style pulled pork, half-pound burgers, and homemade sides. To appease The Little Black Truck's dispirited regulars and lonely frying baskets, the mobile cooks went stationary by opening Official BBQ & Burgers in a building on Lyters Lane. The simple 35-seat restaurant serves up a small menu, which includes smoked chicken wings, creole potato salad, and Grandma's chili, which is crafted from Angus beef and several secret ingredients.

The Midtown Tavern's menu's burger selection invites diners to wrap mitts around a fiery pepper burger kissed with jalapeño peppers and pepper-jack cheese ($8), or a greek burger crowned with tangy cucumber sauce and feta ($7). The towering Fat burger melds two massive ground-beef burgers with melted cheese and hearty slabs of bacon ($10), while the fresh bison burger swaps out a beef patty for a leaner alternative kissed with provolone ($9). Sidekick a meaty meal with mashed potatoes and gravy ($3), a side salad ($2), and coleslaw ($1), and quench parched palates with a sweetened phosphate. Although this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, a broad drink menu tickles the tongues of beer and cocktail connoisseurs.

Arepa City's menu presents a delicious, gluten-free medley of Venezuelan delicacies. The arepas of the restaurant's namesake are flat, round, corn buns grilled (or deep-fried upon request) and served as spongy vessels for safely transferring comestible cargo to awaiting mouths. Load an arepa with pabellon, a Venezuelan staple comprising shredded flank steak, black beans, fried plantains, and white cheese ($6.75), or fill a hungry empanada with picadillo—ground beef and green olives ($4). A delectable black-bean soup topped with crema and cilantro ($4.50) primes the palate for a diverse selection of entrees such as the pernil asado, a slow-roasted pork leg served with fried cassava, fried plantains, and potato salad ($12.25). The platano relleno poses a titillating tongue twister with its picadillo-stuffed, deep fried plantains intermingled with mozzarella cheese and spicy cabbage personally picked by Peter Piper ($8.75).
