Stepping into Duane Park is like stepping back in time. Inside the turn-of-the-century dining room, chandeliers from a Louisiana plantation sprinkle light on the scene below, where visitors sip on handcrafted cocktails and clean their invisible monocles. On stage, a roster of featured entertainers ranging from crooners to sultry sirens belts out ballads from the past seven decades?including tunes from the American songbook and current hits.
Of course, no show is complete without Duane Park's scantily clad burlesque performers, who sashay throughout the room to a chorus of "oohs" and "ahhs" from the crowd. Amidst the entertainment, visitors can dive into the venue's elegant cuisine, too, which ranges from grilled filet of branzino to southern ribs.

There may not be any actual mud in Mudville 9 Saloon, but there's still a good chance that you'll leave messy. The neighborhood bar and grill is known for its traditional and boneless chicken wings, which tend to leave trails of sauce-stained napkins in their wake. Both wing styles are served with a choice of 11 different sauces, ranging from sweet teriyaki to traditional buffalo, the latter of which is available in four levels of spiciness. Start with the mild before working up to the Super Wow, which the menu warns is for “professionals only.” Wings aren’t all that Mudville 9 has going for it. With 24 beers on tap at any given time and more than 76 others in bottles, the saloon has earned its reputation as a destination for craft brews. Local breweries, such as Brooklyn’s Sixpoint, regularly stop by for tasting events, and sometimes they even leave behind a keg or two for customers to enjoy or ride down Niagara Falls. The bar's rustic wood decor makes it the perfect spot to hunker down with a beer flight on a cold winter’s night or to take in the latest sports broadcast on one of 15 flat-screen televisions.
With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives.

This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as Peach Perfection and Strawberry Whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including Peanut Butter Moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. The lunch hour presents toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320?420 calories each.
In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
Only nine blocks apart, the two Tribeca locations of this Swedish café both contain touches of European influence. Forty-two varieties of French-made Le Palais des Thes tea complements the cafe’s coffee offerings, which range from a latte macchiato to Black Cat espresso—named in a New York Times’ piece on “New York’s Best Espresso”. Wooden furniture and candlelit tables make the space more intimate at night. And in southern European fashion, the shop gives guests the option of beer or wine. Toast to the end of the work week with a North Coast Imperial Stout, or savor the spicy notes of Austria with a glass of Juris Pinot Noir. The northern branch holds a more extensive lunch menu. Here guests can satiate appetites with a made-to-order grilled chicken guacamole wrap with fresh mango, or stick to the European theme by enjoying Swedish meatballs with a baguette from New York’s Balthazar Bakery.
