  • Cafe La Maze
    Though at least 130 miles and 80 years of history separate golden-age Hollywood from modern-day National City, Cafe La Maze bridges the gap. During the 1940s, this steakhouse served as a playground for movie stars headed to Tijuana, Mexico. Here, they could tuck in to prime rib and lobster on the lower level, or gamble the night away with card sharks such as the Marx Brothers and eponymous restaurateur Marcel Lamaze in a hidden room upstairs. Today, diners soak up auras of these legends in the same tufted booths where Bing Crosby and Clark Gable most likely lingered at the eatery's grand opening. Candles, chandeliers, and a golden ceiling cast a warm glow across tables as groups savor shrimp cocktails and slice into juicy cuts of top sirloin, new york strip, and filet mignon. Some evenings live music scores meals, and on karaoke nights guests can harmonize with friends as the portraits that line the damask-print walls try to remember the words. Those seeking a more low-key gathering can book the banquet room, which teems with enough red-vinyl seats for up to 70 close friends or cardboard cutouts of their likenesses.

  • Panda Express
    Green Tea Hawaii's supplements expedite the process of losing weight. The company’s flagship item, a nutrient-rich powdered drink, dissolves into water and becomes a slenderizing cocktail of green-tea antioxidants, natural caffeine, and amino acids. Each serving of the fruit-flavored drink boosts metabolism and unlocks the ability to smell colors. Green coffee bean extract and Montagna coffee also deliver a natural dose of caffeine, and raspberry ketones increase the body's ability to burn fat via fruit compounds. Various other powdered drinks soak into the body and replenish vital nutrients.

  • Stone Oven
    Batches of freshly baked foccacia bread, forged in an open-air baking station every 15 minutes, swathe tempting combinations of the gourmet ingredients that populate Stone Oven's menu. Sandwich savants can bedeck the bread in six selections of seasoned low-fat mayonnaise, such as the spicy-chipotle mayo, which escorts onion crisps, avocado, and cheddar cheese safely to the barbecue beef-brisket sandwich ($7.45). The warm foccacia also keeps company with an array of innovative salads, such as the goat-cheese chicken salad ($7.45), or the walnut and green-apple salad, which hosts a raucous gathering of grilled chicken, candied walnuts, and champagne vinaigrette. A bevy of beverages and sides include freshly brewed iced tea ($1.59) and gourmet kettle chips with which to scoop up stray ingredients or use as a carry-on suitcase ($1.50).
