This date-ready resto on Melrose ups the ante by staffing a founding member of Fishbone as their entertainment director. While the menu's set, the music schedule's not -- but expect secret shows by big bands, meaning the only Real Big Fish'll be pan-seared and served with polenta.
This bakery and cafe on Ensley serves up fresh pastries, sandwiches, and more. Don't miss their April-only Grilled Cheese Month menu, featuring the Hot Date: Beemster goat gouda w/ Medjool dates and applewood-smoked bacon on whole grain.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the diner Swingers is famous for opening its doors to some of Hollywood's most familiar movie stars.

This classic, monster-portion cafe features eats like, aptly, The Monster (open-faced grilled focaccia w/ Swiss, onions, mushrooms, roast beef, and horseradish sauce), red flannel hash (braised beef, potato, sweet potato, onion, and roasted beet topped w/ eggs), and the 3-cheese grilled cheese/tomato soup "After-School Special".
