The atmosphere at Jonny Hammers is that of a classic diner and bar, with regulars enjoying a game at the free pool table while guests discuss the finer points of the game over pints of Wisconsin beers. While watching the day’s favored sport’s game on the bar’s television or socializing on the patio, guests can dig into classic American dishes such as burgers, fish fry plates, and thin crust pizzas bursting with fresh produce like an embezzling scarecrow. The diner opens up bright and early at 6 AM every day, with a 12-hour happy hour seeing it through until the evening bar hours.
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."
Painted Parrot's cooks flip fiery Caribbean fare from the kitchen grill, including jerk chicken and steak wraps and a scotch-bonnet-pepper-rubbed fish fillet. The casual, tropical-themed dining room wafts the aromas of the house jambalaya's cooked crab, shrimp, and andouille sausage, just like the best-selling air fresheners in Louisiana do. Additionally, flat-screen televisions hang from behind a bar that boasts numerous draft beers.
Kavo-Apna's chefs bring the flavors of India and Pakistan to the mouths of customers with an extensive menu and full lunch buffet. They boil prawns in a creamy masala curry with tomatoes and onions. Meanwhile, they slow-roast whole chickens in their tandoor, the clay oven trapping heat and searing the flavors of spices into the bird's skin. They even serve traditional lamb dishes, such as the mutton biryani over spiced basmati rice.
The chefs at Kabana Grill create classic Pakistani and Indian dishes with chicken, lamb, and beef. The proteins appear in such entrees as bhunna goosht?lamb simmered in curry?and haleem, a traditional slow-cooked stew made with beef, lentils, and grains. Chefs also whip up mouthwatering vegetarian dishes featuring okra, spinach, and chickpeas. Kababs and other barbecue dishes are slow cooked in a traditional clay tandoor oven, which also bakes up pillowy naan flatbread. The menu also includes handmade samosas, fresh egg rolls, and authentic desserts.
Mr. WEBO's sets itself apart from run-of-the-mill taquerias with their full service outdoor patio and their colorful, urban murals depicting everything from diamond-studded roses to a skeleton mariachi band. The graffiti-chic decor is counter-balanced by a refined menu of updated Mexican classics made fresh-to-order with many local ingredients. Standard baja fish tacos, for example, are re-imagined with a tangy breading made from yellow and blue cornmeal, then topped with shredded purple cabbage, chipotle aoli, and avocado crema. Meanwhile, chiles rellenos arrive dredged in a corona batter and stuffed with green and red chorizo, and flourless gluten free chocolate cake awaits to provide a sweet ending to spicy meals or post-dinner food fights. One taqueria tradition Mr. WEBO's has loyally adhered to? Margaritas––which are served by the whole- or half-pitcher in a choice of six flavors.
**Groupon Celebrates Pride Month** Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives. At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage. This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.
