  • Chef Carla Hall
    Though she's one of five hosts of ABC's food talk show, The Chew, Carla Hall has no trouble standing out from the crowd. You can tell her apart from her cohosts, such as restaurateur Mario Batali and wellness enthusiast Daphne Oz, in numerous ways: her funky glasses, her penchant for calling out "hootie hoo," or, perhaps most unique of all, her love of homestyle comfort-food cooking.? Born in Nashville, Hall specializes in Southern staples, made with French techniques she perfected at Maryland's L'Academie de Cuisine. Her creations earned her a slot on two seasons of Bravo's Top Chef, where she earned raves from the judges for her gumbo. The secret behind the stellar dish? Cooking with love. Hall believes the chef's feelings shine through in the food, which is why angry people can only make hot sauce. Hall still cooks with love today, too, whipping up bite-size sweet and savory cookies and creating original recipes for her cookbooks. She recently announced the development of her very first restaurant?Carla Hall?s Southern Kitchen?slated to open in New York City next year. A fast-casual love letter to Nashville, the restaurant will feature iconic Nashville hot chicken and southern sides, which are anchored by Hall?s family recipes and perfected with her personal touches.

  • Max Brenner Chocolate Restaurant
    The Hug Mug has no handles; to sip from it, you embrace it with both hands, so the hot chocolate warms the palms and the palate. It's a prime example of the treats that await at Max Brenner Chocolate Bar, the only location in the country where the menu is sweets-only, making for a whimsical, yet sophisticated experience. Mugs dubbed "kangaroo cups" imbue every sip of coffee with a bit of molten chocolate, kept safe in the mug's secret pouch. The "Alice" cup dispenses milkshakes, including the Pure Chocolate Granita, a blend of chocolate ganache and ice that helped earn the title of America's best 10 milkshakes by USA Today and the title of "better than regular ice" from a guy named Mark. But even the custom serve ware can't overshadow the chocolate creations on the menu. Dip an ice cream bar into melted milk chocolate, then into sweet crunchy tidbits for the popsicle fondue, which the Washington Post calls "a ritual." Gather some friends to share a pizza that swaps the tomato sauce for melted chocolate and the sausage for toasted marshmallows. And when you just want your chocolate straight up, suck down a chocolate shot: a two-ounce syringe filled with chocolate ganache.

  • 100 Montaditos
    True to its name, 100 Montaditos showcases 100 variations on the classic Spanish bite-sized roll. Each montadito starts with imported Spanish bread, baked daily in specially designed ovens. Next, cooks pack in tasty ingredients, such as Serrano ham, chorizo, and manchego cheese. Beyond traditional eats, rolls can be filled with other global flavors ranging from meatballs and bacon to goat cheese and honey mustard. Besides its namesake dish, 100 Montaditos features salads and Spanish-style tapas, including herb-dusted chicken wings and fried calamari. Bartenders complement meals with equally Spanish beverages, such as Mahou beer, sangria, or lemon-lime soda blended with red wine or beer. Diners are encouraged to kick back and relax in the casual eatery's dining room, which updates the comfortable atmosphere of a 19th-century Spanish tavern with 20th-century lighting fixtures.
