Miller Grill adds sizzle to juicy burgers, Coney Island hot dogs, and breakfast plates. Western omelettes put an egg roof over ham, bell peppers, onion, tomato, and cheddar cheese heads ($6.29), and biscuits and gravy ($1.69/$2.39) build a nutritional foundation in stomachs. Miller Grill sates latter-day cravings by way of its famous cheeseburger ($3.69) and fried onion patty ($3.09), which elicits tears of joy from tastes buds. A menu of encased meats lists 21 styles of Nathan's all-beef hot dogs, such as reuben dogs, piled with swiss cheese, kraut, and thousand island dressing ($3.60), and scrambled dogs, boldly flavored with chopped ground beef, chili, cheese, and onion ($2.65).
Tony's Pizzeria and Gyros hosts a menu of piping-hot Greek cuisine, Italian dishes, and New York–style pizza. Hands knead fresh dough and concoct fresh sauce every day to accompany Tony's special blend of spices. Ravening hoards can top two large single-topping pizzas with pie plumage including pepperoni, onion, bacon, and jalapeño, as well as a choice of garlic bread or a 2-liter bottle of soda ($11.99). Specialty pizzas may be spangled with two to eight different pie-toppers ($6.99 for a medium). Rather than tossing a perfectly good origami collection into the oven, harness the deliciousness of folded treats with a chicken or traditional gyro, in which heaps of meat nestle into a pita drizzled in homemade cucumber sauce ($4.59). A honey-drenched chunk of homemade baklava aptly concludes Mediterranean meals ($1.15).
As the vice president of culinary development at Carino's Italian and recipient of training in Positano, Italy, chef Chris Peitersen masterminds a fresh approach to Italian fare that incorporates stateside favorites into a menu of authentic dine-in, carryout, and catered cuisine. Chef Peitersen helps Carino's string of more than 150 casual eateries to emulate the open-concept kitchen of Italian homes and treehouses de-roofed by wind gusts by ensuring each dish is flavorful and sourced from fresh ingredients. Simple dishes lean on quality ingredients and preparation from scratch as opposed to overpowering embellishments. The baked lasagna exemplifies this philosophy, showcasing 16 layers crafted in-house every morning from italian sausage and beef. As diners act out the leisurely habits and competitive pasta throwing of traditional Italian meals, colorful dining rooms mask eco-friendly accouterments and practices such as cool roofs that reflect heat and cut energy intake.
Owner Ricardo Lopez infuses each of his restaurant’s dishes with the distinctive flavors of Mexico, peppering marinated slices of chicken with chipotle spices and grilling steak with onions and peppers in an iron skillet. Couples and families sit at tables strewn with complimentary chips, queso, and salsa as they carve into cheesy chilies rellenos or fashion house-made flour tortillas into origami sombreros. Open seven days a week, the restaurant hosts special celebrations inside a private dining area and delivers orders of at least 10 entrees.
