Midtown BBQ

The beef ribs, seasoned simply with salt and pepper, taste like the world’s most tender prime steak, while the Shipley bread pudding tastes like heaven itself.

Oporto Fooding House & Wine

For the full Portuguese effect, sit on the herb-bordered patio and order a glass of wine, the better to enjoy your bacalao fritters.

Cali Sandwich & Fast Food

We love a fancy banh mi, but for simple excellence, you can’t do better than this crowded lunchtime staple.
