With 17 different bagel flavors, 11 cream-cheese spreads, homemade soups, and premium deli meats, The Bagel Inn's bread breakers can craft myriad hunger-sating possibilities. Bakers first boil bread spheres before hearth-baking them in such flavors as cheddar cheese and apple cinnamon, and smearing on cheesy spreads mixed with hints of scallion and bacon or apricot and honey. A glance at the menu reveals soups, such as clam chowder ($4.67 for a bowl and bagel), and build-your-own sandwiches ($5.75) laden with preservative-free deli meats from Dietz and Watson. Alternatively, ensure party guests leave parties as satisfied as kittens stuffed into a sock drawer with a catered sandwich sampler laden with sandwiches, such as chicken salad, roasted turkey, or vegetarian-friendly toppings.

A warm orange and red light illuminates Ritual, tinting its brick-accented walls and exotic statues an inviting ruby. Flickering candles and the glow of flat-screen televisions add to the romantic, yet contemporary atmosphere, where the trendy decor is rivaled only by an eye-catching menu of American-fusion cuisine. Globetrotting meals commence with small plates of chocolate-dipped applewood bacon or waygu beef, which diners sear over a hot rock or the grill they keep in their wallets. Chicken marsala and bacon-wrapped filet mignon represent a portion of the more traditional entrees, but dishes stretch as far as the bounds of the chef's imagination, including an award-winning seared duck breast double-coated with crushed cocoa beans and a hazelnut-chocolate demi-glace.

Owner Pavlina and her family craft an eclectic menu of mammoth meals, such as a fluffy three-egg omelet inhabited by spinach, feta, and black olives ($6.95). Guests can acquaint tongues with the flavor of homemade corned-beef hash, accompanied by baked home fries, toast, and any style of eggs, be they scrambled or business casual ($6.95). Shaker's encourages creative spud consumption with home fries baked alongside italian sausage, onions, and peppers, blanketed by a melted sheet of provolone cheese ($6.95). Friday evenings, Shaker's Café and Restaurant's door remains intriguingly ajar until 8 p.m. for BYOB, casual dinners. Diners can entangle brave forks in a mountain of pasta, whose apex bears garlic- and wine-infused chicken marsala ($11.95). Like an underwater hostel, the dinner menu hosts an abundance of wayward sea-swimmers, including baked haddock ($10.95) and fried scallops served beside coleslaw and fries ($13.95).
