Patrick Molloy's, an Irish sports bar, overhauls conventional pub fare with a modern menu of eclectic dishes. Hungry stomachs corral herds of burgers, such as the cowboy burger, which wrangles barbecue sauce, swiss cheese, fried shoestring onions, and bacon onto an 8-oouch patty driven into a potato bun. Gang up on appetites with three chicken sliders battered in beer, fried, then topped with chipotle sauce or hot sauce and served atop hawaiian sweet bread, a version of sweet bread baked over a volcano. Molloy's also pays homage to the Emerald Isle with classic fish and chips, which combines fried beer-battered whitefish with crispy french fries, all served with tartar and cocktail sauce.

Though the sandwiches at Leonardo’s Deli are all constructed on a French roll and layered with provolone, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and condiments, their flavors couldn’t be more unique. That’s because the deli’s extensive selection of meats infuses each hot or cold sandwich with a different savory finish, from the smokiness of bacon to the subtle spiciness of roast beef. Staffers create these sandwiches a la carte, or pair them with a bag of chips and a soda for a ready-made meal. They also assemble fresh salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes for large catered events, customizing each order according to the number of guests, their dietary requirements, and their average score on the cold cuts section of the SATs.

A flavorful assortment of sides and freshly squeezed lemonade enhances the sensory experience of barbecue feasts, surrounding entrees with verdant slivers of cucumber salad, herb-speckled chunks of potato salad, and scoops of beans glistening in pools of barbecue sauce.
