Cooks at Fireside Deli & Family Restaurant slow-cook hand-selected brisket for their deli sandwiches and craft breakfast omelettes, burgers, and baby back ribs from scratch. While patrons share calamari appetizers and steak sandwiches they can take in the card tricks and tableside magic tricks from the weekly magic performance.

From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft-serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.

Inside Tomoya Japanese Bistro & Bar, chefs aren’t the only ones cooking. Though they do craft an array of sushi and traditional Japanese noodle and rice dishes, they also look on as diners marinate their own steak, seafood, and vegetable morsels in pots of hot shabu broth. Servers ferry some of these dishes to small wooden tables and place them on woven mats. The interior immerses visitors in a colour palette of cool grey stone and warm browns, which recessed ceiling lights illuminate. Small canvas paintings of flowers balance out empty wall space, elegantly popping like a peacock that wandered into your living room.

Voted best vegetarian and vegan restaurant by Echo readers from 2008 to 2010, The Duke Street Muse scours local farmers' markets to enrich homemade international plates with fresh, organic vegetables and rich spices. Leaf lovers can pique their discerning palates with a potpourri of lunch fare, including a garlic almondilla tortilla stuffed with broccoli for a hearty crunch ($9 for six wedges) or a roasted-pepper-and-feta sandwich dressed with swiss cheese to permit ventilation ($4.50). Duke regulars swarm the eatery for the daily curry special, and soy mates can indulge in a bowl of vegan chili simmered with textured vegetable protein ($3.75). The Duke Street Muse also pours out Indian-style homemade iced tea and peppy selections from a full espresso bar to invigorate customers and recently unthawed cavemen.
