The cooks at Lanesplitter bake up a menu of New York–style pizzas and pocket-like calzones, and bartenders at the three pub locations pour a large selection of microbrews. An army of nearly 30 meaty, veggie, and vegan toppings stands ready to occupy thin neapolitan or thick sicilian crusts in combinations such as the herbivore's spinach, mushrooms, onions, and olives ($23.50 for a 19-inch) or the garbage pie's heaping mélange of spiced meats and crisper-drawer items ($27.50 for a 19-inch). The bar's taps have recently flowed with Racer 5 by Bear Republic, E.J. Phair's doppelbock, and hand-pumped Bombay by Boat IPA from Moonlight Brewing Company. Some locations host art openings, where diners and drinkers may admire photography, paintings, or mosaics made entirely of anchovies.
Marc 49 serves up a fresh menu starring a savory cast of Italian-influenced appetizers, bruschette, salads, and paninis to accompany the lengthy list of libations. Pass a plate of the house-marinated mixed olives ($4) or share the meat and cheese plate ($9) among a gaggle of good friends. The fresh-shucked Buckley or Chesapeake oysters ($2 each/$20 per dozen) offer a sensational taste of sea for first dates, second dates, or "does this count as a date?" dates, while the menu's seven salads ($6) promise to fill any mouth with an elegant mélange of greens. Put Marc 49’s wine bar to the test by pairing any of the simple yet flavorful bites with grown-up grape juice, available by the glass ($7+), bottle ($24+), or flight ($11 for three 2 oz. tastes).
As a nation, Americans are obsessed with pizza. Well, cars too, but mostly pizza! We love Italian food, period. That’s why the appropriately-named Pizza Nation offers a great selection of pizzas (and a ton of toppings!), calzones and large salads for customers to get their salad and pizza fix whenever they have the insatiable craving for Americanized Italian cuisine. They also have delicious appetizers like chicken wings and the Italian classic: garlic bread. Pizza Nation has some great dessert choices too, including the Italian staple tiramisu. And, perhaps the best part of it all, Pizza Nation offers deals! They do change, but things like a few dollars off a large or extra large, or free extra toppings, are common. After all, the whole family should be able to enjoy pizza, not just the kids!
Chef Charlie Hallowell learned the art of wood-firing from the best of them. He trained under Alice Waters at Chez Panisse for eight years and also borrows her farm-to-table philosophy, reinventing his pizza offerings daily to include whatever's freshest, be it wild arugula and speck or chanterelle mushrooms and gremolata.
The friendly chefs and servers at Red Sea Restaurant & Bar unite families and friends over tasty, shareable meals of East African cuisine. For more than two decades, the family-run enterprise has celebrated the culinary culture of Eritrea and Ethiopia with flavorful lamb and beef stews, sumptuous vegetarian dishes, and regular lectures on ancient Axum. As the exotic aromas of spiced meat and rich veggie stews waft through the restaurant, diners sup on spongy injera flatbread loaves or take in fresh air in the charming sidewalk seating area.
