ZanZiBar Billiards

Along with traditional bar fare—like the burger-and-beer deal for $7—this laid-back hub, featuring free pool and an extra-long happy hour, dishes out fresh Middle Eastern dishes, like hummus, falafel, and shish kebabs.

The Lobby American Grille

Appropriately located in the lobby of the former Paris Hotel. At this American grill, order the blue cheese balls and a specialty cocktail. Don't miss the Stranahan's root beer float.

Snooze

Sip a mimosa in this hip breakfast eatery's chic orange booths. Choose between pineapple upside down pancakes and huevos rancheros. Multiple locations.

Icehouse Tavern

Historic photographs line the walls at this pub, reminding diners that the space was once an ice storage warehouse. The menu consists of American fare, such as burgers and sandwiches as well as housemade desserts. Try the open-faced turkey sandwich, topped with cranberry sauce and gravy.

Twelve Restaurant

This modern American restaurant, named after the 12 months of the year, is seasonally focused with an eye toward local, organic, and sustainable ingredients. Our picks include the rustic mushroom tartlets and decadent beef short ribs with Yukon potato puree.

Jay's Parkside Cafe

Another lunch spot from chef Jay Solomon. Stop in for a sandwich like wasabi roast beef or buffalo chicken.

Tavern Downtown

The fare holds true to the ballpark neighborhood. Choose between Chicago hot dogs and Polish sausages. Great rooftop patio--voted among the top 10 in the country by Playboy--for both drinks and dinner.

Hot Ticket Cafe

Located inside the DCPA, this restaurant is great for a pre-show hazelnut latte and cookie or an intermission bistro sandwich.

Fado Irish Pub and Restaurant

An authentic Irish pub serving classic dishes such as fish and chips, and corned beef and cabbage. Hoist a chilled pint in honor of hearty Irish cuisine.
