Brown Sugar Kitchen

The lightest airiest waffles with a sweet apple cider syrup complement the fried chicken perfectly.

Boccalone Salumeria

Boccalone Salumeria

This is the best place to pick up a hostess gift for a meat-loving friend or family member. I love the assortment of artisanal cold cuts, but my ultimate favorite is the housemade spreadable salami, nduja.

Hands down the best mac n cheese I've ever had at a restaurant, and under $10 no less! Go with friends or family so you can try their amazing varieties on this classic dish. Dessert is a must too!

Juhu Beach Club

Juhu Beach Club

Delicious, fresh, bright Indian flavors from a Top Chef contestant. The sev puri is to die for. Beverages also a highlight, like the salted lemonade with cumin and mint.
