A color-changing lightshow bathes the sleek, angular furniture at Kokopelli Restaurant & Tequila Bar in red, purple, and teal, illuminating patrons sipping one of about five-dozen tequilas and devouring small plates of gourmet Southwestern cuisine. Perched in booths separated by beaded curtains, visitors share plates of Kokopelli crab cakes painted in chipotle orange sauce and ideas on quantum chromodynamics. Crisp yucca chips plunge into scallop ceviche, and tender diver scallops belly-flop into mouth-seas on chorizo and mushroom water wings. On Friday nights, diners bob along to live music while noshing on tamales of braised beef with pasilla sauce. Kokopelli's chefs can also design custom menus and bespoke party hats for private events, which can include 10–125 guests.

For sweets in unusual flavor combinations like chipotle chocolate chip or peanut butter and bacon, look no further than Cookie Confidential. Owner Melissa Torre opened this Society Hill bakery in 2006, where she dishes out decadent goodies Wednesday through Sunday. Cookie Confidential serves fresh cookies, cupcakes and brittles made using locally sourced, all natural, organic ingredients, and while purists can munch on traditional cookies like oatmeal raisin and ginger snap, adventurous eaters opt for varieties like The Columbo (fresh raspberry puree, balsamic vinaigrette and smoked sea salt) and the Cheese Steak (grass-fed beef, dehydrated red onions, organic cheddar cheese and sweet tomato cream cheese). Cupcakes come either as push pops or baked into reusable glass mason jars, and patrons receive a free cookie for every empty jar they return to the sunny, inviting bakery.
Tastebuds' upscale menu serves homemade takeout and prepared foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Start a long day of spelunking off right with a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel ($4.50) or stop in during a break from serving jury duty on the Q Continuum's trial of humanity for a filet-mignon and caramelized-onion panini ($7.99). The deli rotates its take-home entree specials daily alongside healthy regular favorites such as the eggplant parmesan ($8.99/lb) and vegetable quesadillas ($3.99 each). You can also accent any repast with fresh bread from local bakeries, fair-trade coffee, imported and domestic cheeses, specialty teas, Boar’s Head deli meat, and other specialties. Delectable desserts such as the triple-fudge brownie ($1.99), Oreo cookie cake ($4.99), or hand-dipped ice cream treats (prices vary) provide enticing endings to any meals that don't naturally end with the real murderer being unmasked. This Groupon can also be used toward Tastebuds' catering service.

The Pierogie Kitchen’s chefs whip up a smorgasbord of cooked and frozen gourmet cuisine—including stuffed pierogies, sandwiches, and soups—for customers to enjoy in the comfort of their own home. Blow on hot menu options, cooling fork fulls of pierogies brimming with spinach and jack cheese or with an herb, garlic, and potato mixture. Three potato pancakes sport an attractive golden-brown exterior that covertly hides a delicious pearl of sour cream within ($3.99). Otherwise, hold or juggle one of their sizzling sammies, such as the patty stacker roast beef that’s topped with swiss cheese, mild horseradish, and a mushroom pierogi ($6.25). Dessert dumplings, such as blueberry and chocolate ganache, contain a center that’s sweeter than a Peep’s stomach after a pie-eating contest ($5.20 for six; $9.40 for 12).
