The lunch menu at Guido's Deli fields a reliable squad of fresh sandwiches and paninis. The American Dream sandwich celebrates life, liberty, and hungriness with roast beef, ham, smoked turkey, and a choice of cheese ($3.50–$7). Eight paninis populate the menu, one for each president who could pat his head while rubbing his stomach. The Naturalist unites portobello mushrooms and roasted red peppers with caramelized onions, artichoke spread, and tomatoes on a whole-wheat platform, and the Italian brings together disparate deliciousness in the form of capicola, salami, mortadella, provolone, and roasted red peppers ($3.50–$7). The caprese panini, like the first Roman recipe books, binds volumes of fresh mozzarella, roma tomatoes, and a fresh basil or spinach pesto spread ($3.75 small/$7.50 large) and makes a fine companion for a glass of freshly brewed iced tea ($1.50).

Nestled within the confines of a historic building, Century Grille exudes grandeur with its menu, or the crab-stuffed portobello, which conceals on-the-lam flaked crab and its red-pepper sidekick inside a provolone-topped mushroom cap ($16). Meat seekers can unleash freshly sharpened steak knives or scimitars on the Century’s selection of steaks, including the 8-ounce sirloin ($11) or the 6-ounce filet ($14), while nascent nibblers can choose from a bevy of kid-centric classics, including macaroni 'n' cheese and hamburgers. Soak in the charm of the Century’s mahogany woodwork, refinished marble, and bar top crafted from thousands of pennies between sups from the extensive wine selection, which boasts more than 26 available sippables donning their most dinner-appropriate red-and-white frocks.

Wildwood Smokehouse & Saloon boasts carnivorous eats filled with Southern charm and topped with a hearty dollop of house barbecue sauce. Lunching stomachs can saddle up with a noontime menu of specialties, including the carolina pork wrap, with coleslaw, shredded cheese, and honey mustard burrowed inside a flour tortilla ($7.99). Or slather six buffalo wings ($6.99) in southern bourbon, garlic jalapeño, or deadly Ghost Dance sauce, for which you need a written disclaimer and a flame-retardant tongue. Meanwhile, dinner tables groan under the large portions offered by the evening menu, including the Wildwood Platter, where smoked turkey, pulled pork, sliced beef brisket, and half a rack of ribs fill in gastronomic gaps like a digestible game of Tetris ($24.99).
