Banana Leaf fills its dining room with platefuls of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free Indian meals cooked with fresh spices ground in-house. The juices from 16 curry dishes and seven rice specialties can be mopped from the plate with 10 different Indian breads and washed down with lassi drinks. Banana Leaf?s catering services, which serve small gatherings to weddings with more than 1,000 guests, both please party hosts and literally sustain festive homemakers stuck in a web of their own decorations.
Explorers Club's cozy, 100-year-old brick exterior lends a deceptively comfortable face to the restaurant's constantly experimenting kitchen. Owner Tracy Studer and Chef Dan Varga—both veterans of the late Harold Smith's Gloria Café—root their eatery's fare in playfully updated Latin American food such as chorizo sliders and plantain-topped burgers. Yet, Varga constantly flexes his culinary muscles with unusual menu additions such as his chili-citrus-flavored vegetable lo mein. Monthly menus jet around the globe—614 Magazine notes that after deciding on "a country or cuisine, [Varga] spends months researching the ingredients, history, and flavor profiles, and then experimenting in the kitchen," turning out tributes to Germany, Spain, and his ancestral Hungary. An impressive range of vegan and vegetarian options makes use of soy-based tempeh and tofu, catering to animal-loving humans and self-hating venus flytraps.

The folks at the 'wich on Sycamore wanted to create more than just a fast, easy option for their diners. They wanted to do it better?with fresher ingredients, house-roasted meats, and options that were always made-to-order. The result was a lunch and breakfast menu that features a long list of options for customizable sandwiches or hand-crafted signature creations such as roasted eggplant on ciabatta, or pecan chicken salad sandwiches on buttered and toasted honey-wheat bread. Lunch isn't the only focus, though; fresh ingredients are used to create breakfast food such as ham, bacon, and green onion cream cheese on a raisin bagel or goat cheese, basil pesto, portabella mushrooms, and roasted red peppers on toasted honey wheat.

La Villa Mexican Grill's owner, Michael, strives to make his restaurant's menu as authentic as possible. To him, that means sourcing farm-fresh ingredients and making dishes like sizzling fajitas and gargantuan burritos from scratch. Ask him for a recommendation, and he'll point you toward the diablo burrito, which barely contains a mountain of shredded chicken and ground beef beneath a tortilla covered in spicy red sauce, beef tips, and sour cream.
The intermingling aromas of bold curries, roasting meats, and vibrant herbs and spices all demonstrate Delhi Palace's commitment to traditional Indian cuisine. Showcasing a variety of meaty as well as vegetarian-friendly dishes, the menu features a number of familiar staples. Tender lamb in a spicy vindaloo sauce, homemade cheese cubes cooked in spinach and cream, and yogurt-marinated chicken straight from the fusion-powered tandoor oven represent the diverse range of possibilities available from the menu's pan-regional selection. Going beyond savory flavors, the menu also indulges sweet teeth with mango lassis blended with chilled yogurt.
