Owner Andrew Silverman’s empire of global eateries like Steak Frites and Sushi Samba goes down-home American at the bustling comfort-cuisine staple Chat 'n Chew. Regulars know to order the crispy-topped macaroni and cheese, with chicken or bacon added. The overly greasy fried chicken is a miss, but creamy, butter-laden mashed potatoes are definitely something to write home about. And if you need a little extra comforting, save room for the thick, fudgey Coca-Cola cake, made with the soft drink syrup.Recommended Dishes
