Everyone knows that breakfast and burgers are the two most important meals of the day?or something like that. At B3 Breakfast & Burger Bar, traditional breakfasts are served from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day, ranging from savory to sweet. Guests can fill up on biscuits and gravy, omelets, or egg scrambles with hearty add-ons such as andouille sausage and jalape?os or smoked salmon and goat cheese. Or they can start the day off on a sweeter note with lemon ricotta blueberry pancakes, banana nutella crepes, or belgian waffles with fresh berries and vanilla ice cream.
Once breakfast is over, burgers dominate the menu. This includes classic options such as patty melts and the mushroom swiss, as well as turkey, veggie, and shrimp burgers. Creative fixings include everything from apple-cabbage slaw to fried pickles and garlic aioli. For the non-burger-friendly, the menu also features salads, specialty grilled cheese sandwiches, mac 'n' cheese, and shakes and floats. Guests can wash down their meals with draft beers, mimosas, bloody marys, and more from the full-service bar.
Before opening Taco Del Mar's startup location in Seattle in 1992, its founders spent years surfing California's coastline and devouring fish tacos and stuffed burritos. During this time, they developed a bottomless appetite for the local specialty?a taco with fried fish, shredded cabbage, lime juice, salsa, and a mystery white sauce?and decided to make it their signature menu item. Since then, the chain has opened locations in more than 20 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces.
The restaurant gives visitors a taste of the California-surfer cuisine Taco Del Mar's founders fell in love with in the form of fresh fish tacos stuffed with fried Alaskan cod. It also introduces people to Mission-style burritos, giant burritos that were created in the San Francisco Bay Area in the early '80s to feed Paul Bunyan when he was there on vacation.
King Tut's tomb was unearthed nearly a century ago, but the ancient pharaoh continues to fascinate new generations. There are many reasons for why this might be, but very few people cite Tut's culinary legacy among them. If King TUT Mediterranean Restaurant is any indication, that's about to change.
Lined with large photographs of King Tut and illuminated by lights that resemble downturned wine glasses, the restaurant is an ideal setting for a Mediterranean feast. And calling it anything less than a feast would be misleading, given the extensive menu of Egyptian specialties such as hummus, fava beans, vegan sandwiches, and flame-kissed chicken or lamb shish kebabs. For dessert, don't sleep on the flaky slices of baklava, as they're for eating and you'd probably get all sticky if you tried to do that.
Third-pound burgers of char-grilled ground chuck. Flame-kissed steaks accompanied with Yukon gold mashed potatoes. Slow-cooked, hand-pulled pork slathered with homemade barbecue sauce. The menus at Maddox Grill and Bar read like the great American cookbook. For a bit of regional variation the chefs prepare everything from Dungeness crab cakes to spicy, Cajun-style gumbo. All of this warm, homespun cooking complements the dining room's cozy ambiance. Exposed ceiling beams and polished wooden tables gleam in the light of the red-domed pendant lamps that dangle overhead. To keep patrons warm on the inside, the bartenders pour tipples of single-malt scotch or amber-hued tequila and diligently mix specialty cocktails using the bar's private hadron collider.
After a wrong turn to Philadelphia led him to a transcendental encounter with a cheesesteak, Charley’s Grilled Subs’ eponymous owner opened his first sub shop on The Ohio State University's campus in the late ‘80s. More than two decades later, Charley’s slings philly steak subs and gourmet fries in more than 300 locations around the world. Classic cheesesteaks join barbecue-cheddar, sicilian, and chicken configurations on the hearty menu alongside grilled deli subs and salads topped with seared meats. Crispy golden fries invite crumbles of bacon and dollops of cheese, ranch, and other deluxe toppings, washed down with sips of lemonade freshly squeezed from lemons, kiwis, strawberries, and 1958 Edsels.
Pad thai is one of the best-known Thai dishes. It is also one of the most popular dishes at Bamboo Cuisine of Thailand, tempting diners with a mix of rice noodles, bean sprouts, green onions, and eggs sprinkled with peanuts and a squeeze of lime juice. The eatery?s spread of traditional Thai feasts includes panang chicken curry and spicy green beans rubbed with a chili paste. The appetizers, too, are decidedly Thai, with pot stickers and spring rolls that hide cabbage, pork, and pages of the chef?s diary.
