A family business that dates as far back as the 1800s, Hyman's Seafood has been slinging seafood subsistence since brothers Eli and Aaron Hyman took over the business in 1986. Wrestle an alligator while keeping all fingers intact with the spicy gator sausage appetizer ($5.95), or warm up your tasters to the palatable crab and shrimp dip ($5.95).

A jar of bruschetta dried-herb mix ($11.95) combined with a drizzle of Bonsecco Tuscan extra-virgin olive oil ($9.95 for 100ml) makes a delicious spread atop a crusty loaf of bread or classic novel, and Italian squid-ink lingunie ($9.95) is made from Italy's most prolific squid poets. Strawberry balsam vinegar ($7.95 for 100ml) pairs well with cold-pressed walnut oil in a colorful ceramic 10 cm tapas dish ($4.95), and a stainless-steel oil can ($21.95) greases rusty bodies with a quick dose of heart-healthy omega-threes.

When a hot summer hit in 1984, Bob Tumolo wanted to help his neighbors cool down. But instead of crafting traditional ice cream or sticking a straw into a fire hydrant, he decided to formulate his own recipes for Italian ice, using fresh fruit to craft each batch. Ices in a wide range of flavors filled chilly cases at the original Rita’s Ice shop, and those recipes still form the treats at franchises across the country. The shops also offer up scoops of creamy frozen custard customized with toppings such as sprinkles, hot fudge, and caramel, or layer the custard with Italian ice to create the store’s famous gelati.
