At John’s Philly Grille, the best dishes come served atop all manners of buns. That’s because the staff of the eateries—inspired by the City of Brotherly Love—specializes in hoagies and deli sandwiches, filling fluffy, halved baguettes with hot and cold ingredients such as pastrami, veggies, cheesesteak, and barbecued beef. Traditional fixings are layered on top of classic or turkey burgers, which can be paired with starters such as fried zucchini or cheese fries.
Shrimp is the signature dish at Seafood Bucket, where chefs season prawns to each customer's specifications and heap them onto plates by the pound. Cajun spices, Thai seasonings, and garlic butter are but three of the tastes that grace the shrimp, which can also be used to customize pounds of clams, mussels, and crawfish. Thailand's culinary traditions extend past seafood to inspire dishes such as panang chicken and red-curry chicken, and the tastes of Louisiana infuse fried catfish that arrives with the obligatory Cajun fries.

Though Cafe Del Sol’s chefs largely stick closely to the restaurant’s Mexican theme, they’re not afraid to throw in a few American favorites, either. Chefs are equally skilled at grilling carne asada and artfully preparing shrimp fajitas as they are at creating tiered club sandwiches and sizzling double cheeseburgers. The sunny restaurant is the perfect place to sample all the cuisine’s varied dishes or rank tortillas by their taste, texture, and which one doesn’t remind you of the napkin that ruined your last date by being so tasty.
The culinary guides at Pickles Indian Cuisine wield a menu that catalogs a wealth of traditional tandoori dishes and vegetarian-friendly fare. Hone flavor-sensing devices on appetizers such as avocado papadi chat, which unites crust wafers and sweet potatoes with garbanzo beans plus tamarind and mint chutneys ($6.99). Meanwhile, the lamb vindaloo binds together a mélange of coconut, vinegar, and hot chili peppers with potatoes ($12.99) to obliterate hunger like a bulldozer clearing a forest of Styrofoam. Or pair a palak paneer—which incorporates creamed spinach with garlic, cumin, and paneer ($10.99)—with a mango, sweet, or saltly lassi beverage ($4).
