The Bagel Loft's owners, Jimmy Pappia and Ralph Rodriguez, make their bagels the old fashioned way. Then, they are enhanced with a variety of sweet and savory toppings including eggs and cheese, white fish, and cinnamon raisin cream cheese. These bagels transcend their status as a breakfast food when sliced and used to bookend smoked turkey, grilled chicken, roast beef, and other sandwich fillings. Patrons can also pair their bagel bites with cheeseburgers, pancakes, or salads.

He has devised a system of solutions for both men and women to combat hair loss and receding hairlines. In addition to focusing on hair loss, Mr. Carmine and his team of experts also offer a full-service salon.

The dining room at Luciano's immerses diners in classy atmosphere, complemented by a menu of hearty Italian eats.

Viru Restaurant demonstrates its authentic Peruvian roots with a wide variety of traditional dishes. Causa rellena de camarones satisfies bellies with shrimp, as long as those bellies like their shrimp hiding inside chilled mashed potatoes that are spiced up with lime and yellow chili ($12). The parihuela, a soupy sea of seafood cooked with white wine, spices, and panca chili, moisturizes parched stomachs with a torrential downpour of flavor ($24). Representing the eternal battle between land and sea, the bisteck a la chorrillana—a grilled New York steak with a sauce made of panca chili, onions, and tomatoes ($24)—wields haricots verts clubs against the pescado sudado, the fish of the day poached in seafood broth and herbs ($19). Placing a comforting cap on dinner, flan reminds diners of former days when sweet, creamy desserts grew everywhere all the time and only cost a nickel ($6). In addition to edibles, Viru Restaurant nourishes guests at the bar, which stocks its shelves with an impressive supply of domestic and imported beers, sangria, wines, and chicha, a drink made of fermented maize.

For the sportily inclined, televisions light up the evening hours with displays of athletic events of almost every variety.
