Most of Wild Flour's loaves are crafted with traditional old-world European techniques, which exclude fat, oil, sugar, eggs, dairy, and preservatives and replace them with high-quality flours. Artisan favorites, such as the olive rosemary and cranberry walnut, complement any meal, while health-conscious selections such as the whole-grain flax-seed bread and the multigrain sourdough will allow nutrition-minded architects to nosh guilt free. Each of Wild Flour's four cozy stores serves hot lunch daily, with a rotating soup selection that pours the likes of Catalina chicken, cream of potato with bacon, and tomato red-pepper bisque alongside hot grilled sandwiches such as the zipper (ham, salami, provolone, tomato, onion, jalapeños, and mayo, $5.50) and the hot vegetarian (marinated eggplant, red peppers, portobello mushrooms, and pesto sauce, $4.90). Cold deli classics also sashay out of the kitchen, including egg salad ($4.90) and chicken salad ($5.50) and a wide selection of salads (starting at $3.25).

Hard as it is to hold off on the pizzas at Tarantino, it might be worth it if it means a chance to try the appetizers. Diners can begin by splitting orders of mozzarella sticks, buffalo wings, or eggplant strips. Then it's time to dig into one of the specialty pies, such as the Mexican pizza: mozzarella and cheddar cheese topped with ground beef, black olives, and onion. Pastas include lasagna, mostaccioli, and ravioli, the latter of which comes stuffed with meat, spinach, or cheese, and never a note that says, "IOU one ravioli stuffing."
