Leggos serves both morning and midday meals from open to close, giving contrary clientele the chance to opt for a soup and sandwich for breakfast or eggs benedict for lunch. The kitchen wizards chop up 10–13 fresh fruits daily to fill fruit bowls to the tippy top ($3.75/cup), and top waffles ($7.50) with heaping helpings of strawberries, blueberries, or cranberries. Early morning diners can wrap digits around a breakfast quesadilla loaded with spicy eggs, bacon, onion, peppers, and cheese and dip it in homemade salsa before savoring an included side of home fries ($7.50). Or, sharpen rusty arithmetic skills by adding up three eggs, two pieces of bacon, two sausages, one order of toast, and a side of home fries, and dividing it by however many mouths you own ($7).
“Easy” may be in the name, but this restaurant’s inventive pizza combinations are anything but simple. The Bangkok pizza, for instance, arrives tableside topped with grilled chicken, stir-fried veggies, crushed peanuts, and a peanut Thai sauce, and the Beach Chair sports fresh mango-peach salsa, pineapple, and prosciutto under a portable sun. The creativity continues into dessert, when crusts hold gooey s’more fixings or daring heaps of Nutella, bananas, and caramel. And for those who prefer their crusts in more loaflike form, an array of subs and burgers can be customized to their hearts’ content.
After seeing the guitar head logo, it's not a surprise to walk into City Limits Saloon and see a musician strumming an acoustic or queuing up hits from the DJ station. Listen closer, and one might hear the frenzied swivel of foosball handles, the excitement over games of Golden Tee, or the thunks of darts sinking into their foam boards. However, biologists theorize that one cannot live solely on music and games, and so the saloon stocks its menu with Tex-Mex staples.
Chili and cheese soak into plates of waffle fries, while pork belly confit adds a savory texture to bowls of mac and cheese. Chimichangas, enchiladas, and burritos establish the Mexican bona fides of the menu. But the drinks at this establishment are of equal import—tall pints of craft beers and glasses of tequila flank the bounty of Tex-Mex. The moodily lit dining area is surrounded on almost all sides by brick walls, giving the feeling of eating in a wine cellar or a soda pop cellar owned by a mason.
Clad in a red cap and a white uniform, Siam First’s Chef Derm traces the surface of ginger root, lemongrass, and a chili pepper, expounding upon their health benefits on TV Diner. Ginger root is good for heartburn, and chili pepper helps digestion, he remarks, before showing his Thai twist on a New England favorite—Maine lobster.
Beneath Siam First’s gabled roof, Chef Derm and his team crank out Thai specialties that mingle local ingredients such as Maine lobster with spices and herbs imported directly from the land of smiles. Below small, hanging lights and glowing wall sconces, tables populate with duck and snapper in thai basil, mango curry, and garlic-ginger sauces. While noshing on dumplings or crab rangoon, guests can peek into Siam's giant aquarium, rife with fish, green plants, and Jacques Cousteau’s long-lost car keys.
