Agave Taco Bar

This street-style taqueria tops house-made corn tortillas—including a squid-ink variety—with anything from quinoa to ceviche to poblano peppers. For maximum effect, head to the patio to sip on a margarita or one of the fresh, authentic agua fresca juices.

Snarf Burger

What's not to love about Snarf's new concept, the Snarf Burger? This spin-off of Boulder's legendary sandwich shop hosts a new menu: hamburgers, deep-fried hot dogs and bologna sandwiches, and frozen custard. Look for the Lafayette location to open soon. 

Saigon Basil

House-made Vietnamese cuisine with an extensive menu that easily accomodates vegetarians. Try the jasmine iced tea and a combination rice noodle bowl, known as the Hu Tieu Thap Cam.

Federal Bar & Grill

A neighborhood hangout for the beer enthusiast, featuring a hefty list of craft brews from around the country. Sip on something gluten-free or peruse the traditional tavern-style menu of appetizers, sandwiches, and burgers. 

BookBar

Endearingly coined "a book shop for wine lovers, a wine bar for book shoppers." Sample a variety of house-made hors d'oeuvres or a Corvus Coffee hops-brewed beverage at this cozy nook of an eatery

Drakes Haus

Home of the Merlot Burger. Choose from a variety of internationally-inspired patties, or build your own. Chicken sandwiches, small plates, and a festive selection of fries also decorate the menu. 

Zocalo Restaurant & Bar (South Broadway)

Welcome to Mexico City. With an interior as vibrant as the freshly plated ingredients, boredom is not an option. Traditional dishes range from flautas to chilaquiles de mole, and a selection of American hamburgers are available as well. On Sundays, children 12-years-old and under eat for free. 

Moontower Tacos

Uniquely American in style and taste, these tacos pay homage to the owner's Texas roots. Try The Buff: buffalo marinated Redbird chicken, sour cream, crumbled bleu cheese, lettuce, and fried onion straws.

Whittier Pub

This low-key pub and restaurant is heavy on charm. Try the grapefruit cocktail, a simple concoction of Deep Eddy's grapefruit vodka and a splash of club soda. For dinner, trust in the Farm House pastrami sandwich.
