Peña’s Donut Heaven & Grill elevates earthbound appetites with a luscious litany of breakfasts and lunches, earning a CityVoter nomination for the city’s best breakfast in 2010. As the sun is carefully winched up and hoisted into the sky, Peña’s bakers craft delicious donuts ($5.79/dozen for glazed; $6.45/dozen for iced) fresh each morning, while plates of bagel, croissant, or biscuit breakfast sandwiches ($2.50 each) and savory chorizo-and-egg stuffed kolaches ($1.49 each; $15.99/dozen) hone in on hunger with surgical precision. At lunchtime, specialty sandwiches such as the 8 oz. california burger ($6.95) pose for pictures in an edible attire of sprouts and avocado, a slice of swiss cheese, and a dollop of tangy ranch dressing. In addition to classic American eats, Peña’s Donut Heaven catapults diners across the border with helpings of ham-and-spinach breakfast tacos ($2.50 for three) and lunches of beef burritos topped with pico de gallo ($6.99).

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.

Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.

Diners can also pick from grilled selections ($10.95–$12.95), served with shrimp fried rice and steamed veggies. Cool off a spice-saturated palate with a sweet scoop of coconut ice cream ($3.50) for dessert. Expect friendly service, carefully curated curry, and a cozy ambiance at any of the eight outposts. Like the recipe for Play-Doh, Thai Cottage adheres to simple, timeless standards.

The soothing sounds of the saxophone and the call of the trumpet fill the air inside the Red Cat Jazz Caf?.

With parents hailing from Sicily and Naples, Anthony Russo enjoyed an Italian upbringing. By age 12, he spent much of his time in the kitchen, learning to prepare Old World recipes with his family and family friends. And from the flurry of Italian phrases and conversation, one quote of his father's stuck with him most: "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!"

Several decades later, Anthony has hand-tossed his own Italian restaurant franchise and, true to his father's words, employs fresh ingredients in the same family recipes that were passed down to him. Amid exposed brick and walls the warm hue of marinara, skilled chefs craft New York–style brick-oven pizzas with toppings such as spinach, sundried tomatoes, and capers. Servers stand ready to answer questions about the restaurant’s wine lists, letting guests know which wines pair best with the Pizzotto sandwich or whether pinot noir can really turn dogs invisible.

The chefs at Silverlake Hunan Restaurant serve authentic Chinese cuisine with an eye for artistic presentation. Dining duos can scan the menu for their choices of soup, warming bellies with wonton pockets bursting with broth or mutual high-speed stomach rubs. Twin egg rolls cooked in vegetable oil enliven flavor receptors when not directing air traffic, and entrees such as General Tso's chicken rally taste-bud troops with stirring odes to swallowed morsels. Crunchy peanuts and spicy sauce shower tender cuts of meat in the kung pao beef, and sweet and sour shrimp tangos over the whole tongue, illuminating its zesty path like Hansel and Gretel mapping out their salsa-dancing steps.
