In the bygone era of the saloon, few cowboys got to munch on endives stuffed with crabmeat and cilantro. And though nearly a decade old? The Lost & Found Saloon bears old-fashioned decor?a long wooden bar, rustic tables, and a wagon wheel chandelier?visitors aren't confined to period eats. Instead, they can enjoy spicy BBQ ribs, marinated eggplant with three melted cheeses, grilled shrimp with sage and thyme or a slice of wild berry pie with a zesty lemon crust. For breakfast, diners can enjoy eggs and omelets all day through 3 a.m. Throughout the day, sips of cold micro brews offset the heat from dabs of various hot sauces, including house blends and a variety of salsas.
From foodies to celebrities to trend watchers, the buzz around Pinkberry has been sweeping the world. Excitement was high from the very beginning, when in 2005 Pinkberry opened its first store in West Hollywood, California. The demand for the swirls of yogurt was so great that Pinkberry was dubbed "the taste that launched 1,000 parking tickets" by the Los Angeles Times. Undeterred by parking regulations, people were drawn in by their cravings for the yogurt, the abundance of toppings, the bright and energetic store design, and the kind smiles of the staff. With more than 220 locations in 18 countries, Pinkberry is now one of the most-talked-about premium frozen yogurts in the world.
Starting with a base of nonfat, hormone-free milk and nonfat yogurt, Pinkberry's artisans incorporate live, active cultures into the mix to create a healthy, refreshing treat. The original yogurt is always available, but staffers also swirl seasonal flavors throughout the year, such as strawberry, cookies 'n' cream, and cherry. The selection of fresh fruit also rotates with the seasons and is cut daily in each store. Other toppings, such as honey-almond granola, dark-chocolate crisps, swirl pearls, and italian caramel, allow customers to create an inspired flavor combination every visit.

Daily Melt's cooks elevate the humble grilled cheese sandwich to a high art. They start off mornings with hearty maple-bacon melts, which hold bacon and egg together with melted cheddar, maple syrup, and two slices of sourdough bread. They pack entire meals between slices of bread with lunch sandwiches such as the Italiano: a combination of pepperoni, fresh mozzarella, and tomato sauce on homemade garlic bread. Such a dish doesn't need much in the way of sides, but they nevertheless offer seven varieties of pickles and at least one kind of napkin to pair with any sandwich. They even make dessert melts, should one save some room. The crispy banana Nutella melt, for instance, adds fontina cheese and cinnamon to its two principle ingredients, placed in the embrace of still-warm french toast.
