Kim’s Bagel Cafe indulges cravings throughout the day with a menu of fresh breakfast specialties and hearty sandwiches. Pop-culture-inspired items keep taste buds abreast of important trends, such as the Jersey Shore–inspired Mike the Situation sandwich, stuffed with hot sopressata, pepperoni and hot capicola.

Raymond A. Kolkmann founded Raymond Opticians in 1959, prior to the advent of advanced lens technology, and consequently perfected his ability to pair patients with their optimal prescriptions. He later passed this skill to his three sons, who, in turn, imparted the art of optometry to their own sons through careful instruction and basic osmosis. Today, Raymond Opticians' third generation of ocular outfitters benefits from not only the techniques and standards developed by Raymond Sr., but also from modern lens technology, such as Varilux lenses that help correct vision problems and Transitions, which darken when outside. After examining and diagnosing each patient's eye issues, the doctors help them select from a vast array of designer frames and sunglasses by Oakley, Prada, and Versace.

For the past decade, Fratelli Market's Brooklyn-bred famiglia has made its pastas and sauces according to a 30-year-old recipe and conjures its mozzarella from scratch throughout the day to serve as a base layer for its genuine Italian sandwiches. Brooklyn-style marinara sauce adds a distinctive accent to a plate of spaghetti or sack of accidentally cooked laundry with locatelli romano cheese and spices. Otherwise, mix and match the bacon-infused tomato vodka sauce with Fratelli's fresh-cut linguine, penne, and angel hair swept from the floors of heaven's finest barbershops. The pine-nutty walnut sauce, however, was created with the market's jumbo pumpkin ravioli in mind.
