The rich scent of real hickory, apple, cherry, and oak wood drifts from low smoldering fires, infusing the racks of meat above with flavor in a Southern Pride smoker. Drawing inspiration from all over the south, SuzyQue?s BBQ & Bar?s cooks apply spicy dry rubs to every ounce of meat before slow-smoking them, then diners can either enjoy it au-natural or slather plates with one of their signature sauces. Their sauces are inspired by recipes from Texas, North Carolina, and St. Louis and built upon a Vinegar, Tomato, or Molasses base. They also whip up an Orange Habanero sauce full of peppery spice.

The resulting mountains of melt-off-the-bone ribs, smoked wings, sausage, and brisket come to table alongside fine dining entrees, including rib-eye steak, fried chicken, and grilled salmon. Eight on-tap and 18 bottled beers lodge at the full bar, along with glasses of craft cocktails and wine, preparing palates for dessert and punctuating the sound of live bands, comedians, and poker games.

For Sam Mickail, food is autobiographical. Born in Cairo, the first spices he smelled were hearty Mediterranean blends. He then spent most of his childhood in France surrounded by the cooking of world-class chefs, eventually leaving for Switzerland to turn his love of food into a bona fide culinary craft. Now, in America, he channels all of these influences and global experiences into cooking, lending his talents to numerous restaurants and further exploring all the cooking styles that inspired him throughout his life. This surfaces most clearly in Sam Mickail?s CUT Steak House & Bistro, where he?s free to put international twists on the time-honored tradition of cooking delicious steaks.

Sam coats his filet mignons and porterhouses in delicious b?arnaise, au poivre, or perigourdine sauces, according to his customers? wishes. He also serves fresh oysters at his raw bar, slathers lobster tails in butter, and batters escargot with a champagne crust, a creation he calls drunken snails for their complete inability to slither in a straight line.

An island of wooden shelves buds from the dining room's floor, displaying draft-beer taps, glinting rocks glasses, and flat-screen TVs alive with sports. Nearby, plates of grilled paninis, buffalo wings in 15 flavors, and fish ‘n' chips clatter onto a polished bar and lacquered tables, drawing nervous glances from collectors of mint-condition napkins. Clevelands Tap Room's newly revised menu includes time-tested pub fare with a few adventurous accents in the form of pickled ginger and wasabi mayo on ahi-tuna burgers and grilled pineapple on pizzas with homemade sauces. If patrons find themselves in the bar on the right night, they can enjoy NFL Sundays, team trivia, or bean-bag-toss tournaments.

Since its post-Prohibition opening in 1933, the Cloverleaf Tavern has been owned and operated by the same family, serving a hearty menu of casual American and international eats. Begin a meal with the counter-intuitively best-selling hot, bubbling crab dip, a mouth-watering concoction of fresh crab meat baked in a gooey white-wine-cheese blend and served with toasted baguettes ($9.99). Pub classics abound, such as the charbroiled burgers ($7.49+) and irish cottage beef pie, with brown gravy and hearty vegetables bubbling under the mashed-potato crust ($12.99). Cloverleaf Tavern, which was the first saloon in Caldwell to secure a liquor license after Prohibition, also proffers a full bar and vast beer selection of 25 beers on tap, plus more than 50 bottled brews, which makes it an ideal place to stop for a post- or prework celebration.

Juices headline the menu at Manhattan Juice Bar & Cafe, but these aren't just any juices. These raw varieties are created mostly from organic wheat grass, healthy vegetables such as kale and carrots, and though fresh apples and citrus fruits lend a tinge of sweetness. Fresh fruits also show up in the juice bar's smoothies, which are blended with protein powder and non-dairy milk, such as coconut milk, almond milk, and organic flax milk.

But Manhattan is so much more than a juice bar. The cafe's lunchtime menu includes healthy wraps and paninis, many of which feature vegan toppings such as house-made hummus. The desserts are just as tantalizing and healthy, with options such as gluten-free vegan energy balls and bars.
