In 2008, Guy Fieri proclaimed that the German-born owners of Crazee Burger would ?make a burger out of just about anything? on the Food Network?s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Four years have passed, but Guy?s claim still holds true at Crazee Burger, which marries American?s favorite staple food to the atmosphere of a European bistro. The eccentric menu does include some familiar patties, crafted from premium Angus beef or veggies, but also forays into the unusual with burgers made of wild boar, camel, and even ostrich and kangaroo. Imported beers and wine from Spain and Italy, as well as brews from the United States, wash down burgers or bratwursts and make it easier to forget about your childhood pet, a wild boar.

For a breakfast burrito and a decked-out bloody mary or a late-night burger and a beer, Nunu's Cocktail Lounge has been welcoming patrons into it's low-lit lounge atmosphere for more than half a century. The joint is full of overstuffed, round leather booths, accented by rich, vintage wallpaper, taking guests back to a time when art deco was swell and all the cookies were ducky shincrackers. But their 12 flat-screen TVs remind folks that they haven't actually traveled time.
To fuel the revelry, the bartenders pour wine and beer and mix cocktails made with one of more than 20 vodkas. And hearty philly cheesesteaks, Angus burgers marinated in whiskey, and chicken parmesan sandwiches fill up bellies.

The Red Fox draws crowds for more than the steak, according to Esquire. The mag crowned the joint’s piano bar one of the best in the country for its authentic lounge vibe, which dates back to 1959. Pianists tickle the ivories there every night of the week.
