Seasoned barkeeps fill glasses with the aromatic pours from a rotating selection of 12 wines, and the cellar stocks a slew of bottled vintages from Idaho wineries to far-flung international locales. Guests can also indulge in sips of 38 domestic and international beers. It's all a part of the new ownership at Corkscrews, who complement their libations with a freshly concocted menu that showcases pizza, salads, a spread of cheeses, and desserts, from cheesecake to ice cream with almonds. On top of filling Corkscrews' cozy environs with daily live entertainment, the owners enjoy renting out the facility and its team of wine handlers for private events such as holiday parties and Flat Earth Society meetings.
The frozen-treat machines that line the walls at U-Swirl Frozen Yogurt's three Idaho locations churn out up to 20 flavors ready to be buried under heaping scoops of self-serve toppings. Patrons can fill their cups to the brim with velvety swirls of strawberry, chocolate, or Irish mint before capping off each chilled peak with toppings that include fresh fruit, candy, kids' cereals, and chocolate sauce. The live cultures nestled within each ounce ($0.39) of frozen yogurt can bolster digestive function and immunity, and its calcium can fortify bones and keep snowmen’s innards chilled long into the spring.
Gandolfo's slices up fresh meats daily and flings more than 70 different sandwiches out the window of a yellow cab in true NYC style. Carryout or dine-in on specialties such as the piping-hot Mama Leone ($5.69 for half order, $8.89 for whole order) and the meatlessly delicious Madison Square Garden ($4.49/$7.69), or punch your stamp-licker with a Knuckle sandwich ($8.89)—hot pastrami on sourdough with cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, lettuce, tomatoes, marinated mushrooms, olives, mayo, and butter. See the menu for the exhaustive list of bread-bordered options.
The premium nonfat and low-calorie frozen yogurt at Jamms is freshly prepared daily, with enough innovative toppings available to make infinite intriguing concoctions. Much like old-timey corner candy stores owned by mustachioed oil barons, Jamms charges by the ounce, so self-serving flavor seekers can pile on as much yogurt and toppings as they like. Customers get a choice 10 different flavors of yogurt ($0.40/oz.). Stick to the chocolate classic, or bask in the hot Latin breeze with a swirl of dulce de leche cake batter. With more than 70 toppings as varied as fresh fruit, chocolate-chip cookie dough, mochi, brownie pieces, and carob chips, each completed yogurt canvas emerges as unique as the thumbprint of a recently arrested snowflake.
