Bar Pilar's menu is full of variety and constantly changing — a recent visit brought everything from soft-shell crab ramen to a Sriracha-spiked chicken liver pate. See what Jesse Miller is cooking up during the warmer months, and don't forget to order a cocktail in the process.

Sunday breakfast: Fare Well

Sunday diner breakfasts don't necessarily need to be spiked with fatty bacon or greasy sausage.  See what plant-based breakfast items this new diner is cooking up in the Atlas District.

Sunday lunch on the go: Seasonal hoagies at Taylor Gourmet

Taylor Gourmet loves to switch up its menu items each season, and some of its latest offerings, from the Willow with turkey to the Southern cheesesteak, look intriguing. Even better: they're a great to-go option for those having a picnic or enjoying other summer fun on the run.
