Perry's Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge, open since 1971, attracts patrons with live music acts, refreshing drinks, and hearty American, Greek, and breakfast dishes.

They can also order their favorite breakfast entrees, such as crab omelets, any time of the day.

After fueling up, patrons take to the dance floor to boogie to live music or play pool and darts downstairs in Odie's Pub. Eighteen flatscreens line the space here, so visitors don't have to worry about missing the game or not being able to watch their wedding video on their anniversary.

Adam Greenberg refers to himself as “the world's pickiest eater,” which may explain Bagels 'n Grinds’ distinctive take on the celebrated baked good. Greenberg’s self-professed culinary perfectionism led him to create a secret 10-step bagel recipe that involves a colossal water-purification system, visible to patrons through a glass wall. With scientific precision and occasional mad-scientist cackles, the newly opened shop's staffers create 16 types of bagels that manage the tricky balance of crisp surfaces and soft insides.

Patrons can smear their bagels with low-fat, housemade cream cheeses infused with ingredients such as strawberries or lox, or opt for one of the café’s other creations, such as Bagnini sandwiches topped with piles of meat or marinated portobello mushrooms. Water from the café's purification system also goes into free-trade organic coffees and three different iced-coffee brews. Custom salads incorporate gourmet ingredients such as hormone-free chicken, candied walnuts, or toasted-parmesan crisps, while six distinctive soups are served in cups or bagel bowls. Non-edible amenities inside the new shop include free Internet access, a semi-private conference area, an 18-foot coffee bar, outdoor patio, and flat-screen TVs.

The staff at Phubs can't wait to introduce visitors to the Vietnamese favorites they grew up eating. High ceilings, bamboo accents, pale-green walls, and an open, stainless-steel kitchen cultivate an airy feel in the dining room, where taste buds meet b?nh m? and pho for the first?or hundredth?time. Crusty loaves of french bread clasp a b?nh m? cargo of pickled vegetables, cilantro, and meat such as barbecued pork and spicy chicken.

Pho is a broth-based soup in which the likes of meatballs, shrimp, or chicken bob alongside sprouts, herbs, and veggies. Phubs also seves noodles, fried rice, and spring rolls, which are named for the spring-loaded cannons they traditionally fly out of. For those new to the flavors of Vietnamese food, Phubs 101 educates with brief histories of their best-selling dishes.
