If you’re ever at La Taza for brunch, I highly recommend The Sanchez! It’s black bean spread, fresh guacamole, egg and bacon on toast. It also comes with a green mustache!

2. Calamari, Fellini’s #9

The calamari at Fellini’s #9 is a favorite with staff and diners alike. This calamari is sauteed with red grapes, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, capers, celery and arugula tossed in a chili butter sauce. You’ve never had calamari like this!

3. Truffle Fries, Citizen Burger Bar

If you haven’t tried the truffle fries at Citizen Burger Bar, I have no idea what you’re doing with your life. These fries are covered in Parmesan cheese, dusted with chives and coated in rosemary aioli. You’ll want to lick the bottom of the bowl.

4. Grilled Pork Flat Iron, commonwealthSKYBAR

commonwealthSKYBAR’s grilled pork flat iron is perfectly juicy. It’s served with roasted Brussels sprouts, Peruvian potatoes and herb jus.

5. Fried Chicken, The Whiskey Jar

The Whiskey Jar makes my absolute favorite fried chicken. This chicken is juicy, crunchy and the breading is spiced with rosemary. It all sits on a bed of sweet collards.

6. BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos, Wild Wolf Brewing Company

The BBQ pulled pork nachos at Wild Wolf Brewing Company is piled high with house made tortilla chips, black beans, jalapenos, salsa, sour cream, spicy cheese and Wild Wolf’s own BBQ pulled pork! It’s the perfect mate for a pint of your favorite brew.

7. Bistro Mac N’ Cheese, The Nook

The Nook’s mac n’ cheese is pretty famous. It’s so much more than pasta and cheese. Julienne sliced ham, Roma tomatoes and fusilli tossed with three cheese bechamel sauce and topped with garlic buttered bread crumbs.

8. Pasta Primavera, Bella’s Restaurant

I have to admit that I love anything with sauteed zucchini, especially in Mama’s red sauce. Bella’s Restaurant’s pasta primavera has sauteed zucchini, squash, garlic, onion and crimini mushrooms, baked with pecorino and mozzarella.
