Though the sandwiches at Leonardo’s Deli are all constructed on a French roll and layered with provolone, tomatoes, pepperoncini, and condiments, their flavors couldn’t be more unique. That’s because the deli’s extensive selection of meats infuses each hot or cold sandwich with a different savory finish, from the smokiness of bacon to the subtle spiciness of roast beef. Staffers create these sandwiches a la carte, or pair them with a bag of chips and a soda for a ready-made meal. They also assemble fresh salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes for large catered events, customizing each order according to the number of guests, their dietary requirements, and their average score on the cold cuts section of the SATs.

From under the grill at Britt's BBQ, flames reach their flavor-enhancing tendrils up to barbecue-glazed ribs, tender pork shoulders, and skewers loaded with fresh veggies, infusing the whole menu of barbecue eats with their smoky essence. Grill-savvy chefs fill sandwiches, entree platters, and fresh salad greens with cuts of brisket, ribs, and chicken as guests order, resulting in hot meals fresher than a daisy on laundry day. A flavorful assortment of sides and freshly squeezed lemonade enhances the sensory experience of barbecue feasts, surrounding entrees with verdant slivers of cucumber salad, herb-speckled chunks of potato salad, and scoops of beans glistening in pools of barbecue sauce.

If a Coolhaus customer finishes their ice cream sandwich by eating the wrapper, they’re not being gluttonous—the wrapper is edible. What’s inside that wrapper is even more tempting, though. First, the staff bakes the cookie base for their sandwiches with sustainable ingredients that beget sweet discs in chewy double-chocolate with sea salt, potato chip and butterscotch, and vegan carrot cake varieties. Next, they pile on scoops of handmade ice cream in any combination of more than 60 flavors that they let customers choose, unlike rival truck Uncoolhaus, where all of the ice cream sandwiches taste like math homework. They dispense their creations from four trucks that roam the city streets on routes that customers can track via an online calendar. The buzz surrounding their sweets—thanks to positive press in The New York Times, Time, and on the _Food Network—helped Coolhaus expand to New York City, Austin, Miami, and Culver City.
