Dosa-n-Curry's cooks prepare an extensive menu of Indian and Indo-Chinese eats, made more impressive by the fact that every offering is completely vegetarian. They prepare many menu items to be vegan and gluten-free, as well. Like a snack vending machine that is just leaking sauce everywhere, they offer 25 different kinds of curry, featuring everything from lentils to okra and cauliflower. They whip up a similarly robust selection of dosa, the fourteen varieties stuffed with cabbage or potato and coated in sauces such as spicy chutney–all made from the small cottage constructed in the kitchen.
Bull McCabe's traditional Irish pub unhinges diners’ appetites with a full menu of both American and Irish pub fare. Pique taste buds with a selection of tavernesque appetizers, such as breaded mushrooms ($6) or a basket of fries ($5), before getting stomachs to bench-press heftier fare, including a half-pound Black Angus No Bull burger, cooked to order with a choice of toppings ($8). Singing duos and centaurs alike will applaud flawless pairings of Irish bangers and mash ($9) and fish and chips, made with fresh haddock ($12). Enjoy these fine eats in the easygoing atmosphere afforded by daily live-music performances, weekly karaoke and trivia contests, and yearly blinking tournaments.
Although it offers drinks and café fare to go, Fortissimo Coffeehouse is no drive-thru pit stop. Instead, the coffeehouse cultivates a welcoming charm with record players spinning classic vinyl and small, intimate tables perfect for a lunch date or an afternoon of getting work done. The team behind the counter helps further either of these pursuits by mixing up steaming cups of coffee, lattes flavored with Monin syrups, and smoothies filled with more fruit than the Chiquita Banana lady’s headshots. Alongside the drinks, baristas make and serve a select menu of breakfast dishes, veggie-filled wraps, and a range of paninis that can be converted into salads. The menu incorporates a variety of flavors, creating unique options like the popular Uncle Toni, which combines jerk turkey with chipotle-smoked gouda, colorful peppers, and guava spread on a choice of panini or atop a bed of salad.
The skilled chefs at Brunello Bistro tantalize the culinary lobes of the brain with a fusion menu of Italian and Mediterranean fare served with aesthetic flair. Enchanted epicureans, like disoriented Christopher Columbuses, will immediately set a course for Brunello's antipasti plates, such as mussels served either bianco in a garlic-and-wine sauce or spicy pomodoro in a hot fra diavolo sauce. After a second course of soup or salad, all roads lead to Brunello’s entrees, which include the signature lobster-potato gnocchi and the lamb osso buco in a port-wine sauce with mascarpone-cheese polenta. Diners worried about upsetting humanity’s uneasy truce with sheep can instead venture out into one of Brunello's idiosyncratic plates, such as braised duck with wild-mushroom risotto and asparagus. Each duo's chew-a-thon concludes with sweet bites from the frequently rotating dessert menu.
Taking its name from the Spanish word for a young colt, El Potro treats diners to zesty feasts of sizzling steak fajitas, saucy chilaquiles, and tacos filled with spicy peppers and marinated meats. Festive Mexican décor surrounds diners, with red tile floors and orange walls framing chunky, solid-wood chairs that feature hand-painted images of horses, galloping vaqueros, and lasso-swinging centaurs. Alongside spreads of food and margaritas from the full bar, diners can revel in karaoke on Thursday or Sunday nights or swinging jams from the house band Mariachi Estampa de America on Fridays and Saturdays.
