Owners Hilde and Clause Friese moved to the U.S. from Munich and Hamburg to share their incredible recipes with their new friends and neighbors. The bakery boasts fresh, handmade breads, cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, and the famously flaky apple strudel, a pastry carefully filled with apples and cinnamon sugar. For lunch, you can try to wiggle your way through a giant pretzel ($5), served with house-made German mustard. For dinner, go with a classic German banquet of wiener schnitzel ($16), piles of scalloped pork lightly breaded and sautéed, served with German potato salad and seasonally fresh vegetables. If the menus' girths overwhet your appetite, just head to the bar for a liter of German craft beer. Then muster your confidence and use today's Groupon to challenge your friends or foes to find out who can eat 57 potato pancakes the fastest.
Sports are all about rivalries?the Red Sox vs. the Yankees, Duke vs. UNC. Rivals on Five celebrates them all. The pub's sleek and spacious dining room is filled with multiple televisions, which means guests won't miss a minute of the action when their favorite teams go head-to-head.

There's nothing better than settling into the pub to enjoy your favorite beer on tap?except maybe enjoying that same tap beer in the comfort of your own home. The beer aficionados at Growler Time make it easy to do just that. With 30 beers, two ciders, three wines, four craft sodas, and 39 levers on tap, they'll readily fill up a new vessel with your pick or refill any dry growler brought to them for waste-free imbibing.
Zucca was founded by a trio of forlorn New York natives who longed for a taste of a thin, crispy-crusted, Staten Island–style pie. The results are presented on a menu dense with Italian delights. Starters such as crispy fried risotto and mozzarella balls ($7) and fresh bruschetta ($6.25) make satisfying meal bases for the award-winning pizzas. Pies are offered in two sizes—personal portions ($8+) or 18" discs ($13+)—and come customizable with more than 25 toppings, including bacon ($2), eggplant ($2), and roasted red peppers ($3). Specialty pies such as the expo-winning victory pie ($19 for 18" pie), a Margherita pizza with parsley sausage, mushrooms, and shaved parmesan, will tame topping negotiations, while hand-held calzones ($7–$9) and the extensive selection of popular pasta dishes ($10–$15) and entrees ($13–$21) are sure to delight.
The Square Pub's burger builders hand-pack 100% Angus beef patties to buttress a menu of gourmet hamburgers and other upscale pub fare. Build-your-own burgers ($7.75+) allow amateur aliment architects to inform flavors by utilizing any combination of toppings, including caramelized onions, guacamole, and fried eggs, good for blurring the lines between dinner and breakfast for dinner. Chef-designed offerings, such as a spicy green-chile cheeseburger ($8.75) or a veggie burger bedecked in cool guacamole and sour cream ($7.75), enable decision-adverse diners to squelch hunger pains in peace. Each meatwich also teams up with tasty sides such as sweet-potato tater tots, savory black-eyed peas, and time-tested french fries to double-team taste buds.
