MVP Grill & Bar
It's a familiar scene—plasma TVs glimmer with football games as friends clink frosty glasses of brews over animated conversations. Still, MVP Grill and Bar sets itself apart from the standard neighborhood pub with its lengthy menu of eclectic dishes, which range from hearty American classics to fine Italian specialties. Its chefs whip up their own sauces for tender barbecue and juicy sandwiches, while inserting fine cuts of meat and fresh seafood into pastas, quesadillas, and other specialties. Chefs also fire-roast their own housemade italian flatbread before layering it with gourmet vegetables and cheeses to craft tasty paninis.
To complement the chef's top-tier menu, bartenders pour pints from a selection of more than 30 microbrews. Sports knickknacks adorn the walls in the bustling dining room, and outside on the deck, tropical-straw umbrellas that shade the patio furniture create the atmosphere of a far-off island beach or the exotic-fish section of a pet store. Throughout the month, the eatery hosts special events—including live music, karaoke, and trivia nights.
