Half-moons, cylinders, and blocks of gourmet deli meats and cheeses fill the glass display case at Simple Sands Deli. From this bounty, the staff slices pounds of prosciutto, chipotle turkey, brazilian pork, and salami. They wrap their meats and cheeses in tidy parcels for home cooking, but these savory ingredients also compose the deli's menu of Italian breakfast sandwiches. The team makes the capicola and salami, as well as hearty lunch and dinner sandwiches such as the Smoked Mid-Western, which piles santa fe turkey, gouda, onions, tomato, and dill spread atop flyover-sized pieces of whole-grain bread. Jumbo kosher pickles and bags of Utz chips, as well as drinks from soda to iced caramel macchiatos, help round out each meal.
The talented cooks at Jumpers Grille grace tables with tasty dishes of tender pulled pork and chicken, delicious sides, and dollops of signature barbecue sauce. Each juicy portion of meat arrives on a choice of special roll, white, wheat, rye, or wrap, slathered in mild, hot, or honey sauce, and crowned with a medley of toppings including relish, horseradish, Tiger sauce, and onion. Chilly draughts of cola, freshly brewed iced tea, and birch beer quench mealtime thirsts, and piping hot cups of coffee and hot tea warm gullets or melt blocks of ice with love notes embedded in them. Like a blistering banjo solo, the mouthwatering lineup of sides promise a traditional accompaniment to barbecue feasts, with appetizing eats of french fries, mac 'n' cheese, crisp coleslaw, and hearty potato salad.
Inside the savory-scented digs of Honey Baked Ham & Cafe, spools of hardwood-smoked, spiral-sliced ham entice carnivorous palates. Here, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.
The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
The chefs at Garry's Grill use house-made breads and seasonal ingredients to create hearty American meals with international touches. At breakfast time, that translates to creamed chipped beef over buttermilk biscuits and, at lunch, seared tuna wraps, which are rubbed with Thai spices and supplemented with cabbage, carrots, lettuce, and wasabi cream sauce. Feel free to add a side of crab cakes to any dinner entrée, such as the penne with roasted red peppers and portabellos, or the Man Burger, which is topped with gorgonzola, onions, mushrooms, bacon, and jalapeños and wrapped in an 8x10 photo of Gregory Peck. Also on the menu: Red and white wines from California, Washington, and Italy.
Supper Thyme's goal is to de-stress the breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours by inviting visitors to craft hearty and nutritious meals beforehand. After perusing the monthly rotating menu, customers can select an assortment of calorie-conscious, family-friendly, or organically inspired dishes and schedule an appointment to come in and assemble the ingredients. Staff members then gather all of the necessary ingredients and utensils, ensuring that each meal can be assembled in as few as 10 minutes. In between portioning out servings, visitors can enjoy a snack while listening to music or chatting with fellow attendees in the shop’s casual, low-stress kitchen environment. The meals can remain safely frozen in homes' freezers, with easy-to-follow cooking instructions allowing customers to quickly thaw and cook entrees whenever they might need to feed families, guests, or a lost restaurant reviewer.
