At Against Da Grill, the cooks make everything to order, whether they're cracking three eggs for steak omelets or grilling up half-pound, handmade Black Angus burgers. As menu-creator Kurron Mangin explained to the Staten Island Advance, it’s all part of their mission to "bring fresh food that's a little different to the neighborhood." He and his team fold up two-dozen types of wraps and assemble unique sandwiches such as the Broad Street Bully, which piles fire-grilled chicken breast, romaine lettuce, parmesan, and Caesar dressing between toasted garlic bread. And while the cooks specialize in grilling Caribbean jerk chicken and juicy burgers, they also whip up corned beef hash, waffles, and hotcakes at any time of day for diners philosophically opposed to lunch.
Please note that Against Da Grill does not accept reservations, and that waits may be long during high-volume times, such as on the weekends.
It’s more than just gooey, melted mozzarella on bubbling pizza. And it’s more than a long list of 29 sandwiches including meatball parmigiana and BBQ grilled chicken. Johns Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant has brought these dishes and more to thousands of events since opening in 1989. For offsite soirées—such as the ones they catered for the New York Police Department and Staten Island University Hospital—Johns can also provide tents, tables, and chairs that make planning a party so easy that some might want to start celebrating their birthday three times a year. Alternately, customers can dine in at their pizzeria, choosing from a menu of nearly 20 salads as well as seafood entrees and crowd-pleasing pizzas.
Illuminated by glowing blues and reds, indiglo Restaurant & Lounge presents visitors with a chic, upscale atmosphere in which to kick back for meals, drinks, and live performances. Inside, two levels thump with tunes from the venue's advanced sound system as bartenders whip up cocktails and specialty martinis. Visitors may start their nights off with dinner, such as char-grilled 12-ounce rib eyes and penne shrimp pasta, or with happy hour, which occurs Mondays–Thursdays.
Giant photographs of sports legends sweep across the walls of Bench Sports Bar, from uniformed Dodgers lounging in the dugout to boxers getting ready for a match. Under the gaze of these athletic greats, bartenders dole out frosty of draft beer in pints and pitchers and mix up specialty cocktails. Guests dig into wings slathered in five sauces and sliders in six varieties, including grilled steak with caramelized onions and juicy short ribs with garlic mayo. As they dine, massive flat screens on the walls glimmer with the action of the day’s sporting events, from a quarterback scoring a touchdown to an MMA fighter realizing that his strength came not from his lucky socks, but his heart.
The skilled cooks at BBQ Master are no strangers to an open flame, deftly smoking, searing, and saucing triple-decker sandwiches, burgers, and racks of pork daily. Atop heaping plates, molasses-rich barbecue sauce smothers juicy chicken while pork ribs sizzle on the grill. Customers can complement smoky meats with classic sides, including corn on the cob, macaroni, and baked beans.
