Doc’s Louisiana Boil

Lock your bike and walk a block to 32nd Street North and Central Ave and you might catch a whiff of spicy Cajun sausage and fried okra from Doc’s Louisiana Boil, which opened quietly this summer. Bringing a taste of home-cooked Louisiana cuisine to the Grand Central District, diners can enjoy grouper po’boys, garlic noodles and shrimp, and traditional seafood boils of lobster, crawfish and crab. The side item menu is just as enticing, featuring everything from fried jalapeños, mushrooms and pickles to hushpuppies and boiled peanuts.

Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria

East meets West with themed gourmet sandwiches plus a unique blend of authentic side salads and a wide variety of loose leaf teas and sweets. We’re partial to the Mama Ling Ling’s Thanksgiving sandwich, which comes loaded with turkey, gouda, stuffing, ginger cranberry chutney, mashed potatoes, cream cheese and a side of gravy. Thanksgiving dinner in a sandwich. Genius.

Cappy’s Pizza

NYC and Chicago-style pies are served up in this pizzeria’s homey digs. Hang out and soak up the kitchen aromas while enjoying your favorite craft beer, a slice or five, and playing Trivial Pursuit.

Craftsman House

Built in 1918, this fully renovated arts and crafts bungalow showcases American craft artwork from over 300 local and national artists. A compliment to the extensive art gallery is the cafe and front porch, where you can enjoy homemade treats, and the old carriage house, which has been converted into a pottery studio.

Punky’s Bar and Grill

A funky neighborhood bar and restaurant serving up nightly dinner specials including prime rib, steaks, seafood, pasta dishes, tacos, and meatloaf. You’ll find a lively entertainment schedule, too, with the awning-shaded, laid-back patio playing host to a variety of live music, DJs and drag shows.
