  • Fernanda's Gourmet Market
    Fernanda's International Market, a treasure trove of rare ingredients and made-to-order gourmet sandwiches, bakes robust breads and fine pastries. Among a troop of hearty sandwiches, the Martorano ($8.99) stands out for its spicy temper and muscular blend of sopressata and cappacola meats. The Churchill ($8.99) loads its taste gun with Branston pickle relish and fights hunger pangs on ham-coated beaches, cheddar cheese fields, and hot mustard streets. Fernanda's also sells prepared food by the pound and hard-to-find international groceries like Thai lemon grass.

  • Hot Tomatoe Italian Bistro
    Montreal native Tony Bianco teamed up with executive chef Enzo Addario to create Hot Tomatoe, a traditional Italian bistro boasting a menu that brims with house-made, cooked-to-order pastas, flavorful meat dishes, and full- and light-bodied Italian wines. Their regional cuisine typically integrates up to seven essential ingredients—oil, garlic, basil, tomatoes, pasta, and olives—from which Snow White’s seven dwarves drew their names. In addition, the staff goes shopping for fresh ingredients three to four days a week to supplement both seasonal compositions and year-round dishes, which include veal parmigiana, filet mignon, and penne norma.

  • Mike's Cigars
    When it opened in 1950, Mike's Cigar Bar kept its entire stock in a cozy 1,800-square-foot storefront. These days, however, the store doesn't just sprawl its wares across a 17,000-square-foot space. Instead, the staff splits its time showcasing the millions of cigars in its store and recommending the perfect drinks to go with the cigars in its connected lounge. The space is an ode to smoking rooms of years past, albeit updated to include modern amenities, such as the widescreen televisions showing sports events. The lounge also plays host to frequent events throughout the year, including tastings. Although the lounge may be the place to linger, most guests still spend a bulk of their time perusing the store's expansive cigar inventory, which includes more than 300 cigar brands—everything from Rocky Patel to Mike's Cigars' flagship 898 Collection. Besides individual stogies or five-cigar samplers, Mike's stocks humidors, cutters, and accessories.

  • Tilted Kilt
    Beautiful waitresses clad in plaid mini kilts crisscross Tilted Kilt, hoisting trays of Celtic-themed pub fare as sports fans catch games on high-definition TVs. Almost a decade old, the Tilted Kilt franchise originated in Las Vegas, where restaurateur Mark DiMartino first conceived of a sports bar with Irish touches—an idea that has since spread across the country. Patrons can stay out late at the pub, spending the night sipping on beers while sampling burgers, fish ‘n’ chips, or shepherd’s pie filled with beef and veggies. On a weekly basis, musicians enliven the already party-like atmosphere, strumming tunes or throwing up fistfuls of counterfeit money on the eatery’s patio.

  • Miga's
    Miga's restaurant and meat market unfurls an elegant array of steak, pastries, and pastas at the market, or mouthwatering feasts of barbecue, fine wine, and sandwiches at the restaurant. Guests enjoy light wraps and tapas at the alfresco sidewalk cafe, or chow down on Argentinian-style grilled Angus steaks amid the rustic barrels, woodsy picnic tables, and pan-fluting forest nymphs of the indoor dining area. Display cases beckon to shoppers with edible treasures of empanadas and cakes, while rows of baskets and walls of wine racks bristle with flavorful malbecs, merlots, and cabernet sauvignons.

  • De Rodriguez Cuba
    The son of Cuban immigrants, James Beard Award–winning Chef Douglas Rodriguez crafted a menu that blurs the line between Latin American comfort food and American fine dining. Diversely delicious tapas selections, such as as ham croquetas ($8), pulpo a la gallega (seared octopus, $13), and plantain-encrusted mahi mahi ($12), can fill even the most discerning appetite bucket to the brim. Sup on the savory crispy-skin Cuban pork ($26) or the Fire and Ice ceviche ($15), which combines salmon, lemon juice, chives, jalapenos, and dill over yogurt and cucumber granita to create a mind-bending flavor duality capable of melting the taster into a puddle of biodegradable paper-mâché. The duck and foie gras cassabe flatbread ($17) is like your favorite Italian pizza married a beautiful duck and moved to Cuba.
