The best and cheapest places to get away for dinner this weekend

The snow is in the forecast—here’s where to go if you haven’t left town yet.

DINING

$20 for two at TEN at Ten Ten Meat Market

Compose yourself with chicken, fennel, rosemary, potatoes, and vinegar on a long-stemmed stem at this rustic shack.

$27 for two at Bison + Moose Steakhouse

Our favorite meaty options: pulled-pork-and-horseradish-slathered sliders, steaks and chops, and prime rib with caramelized-potato crust.

$30 at Trummer’s on Main

Better than schnitzel, grilled tofu, or Spanish rice and beans? This arty British spot is the perfect American South gentleman’s getaway—we saw Samuel L. Jackson chowing down during a recent visit.

$35 for two at Patria

A tearoom on the streets of Little Italy isn’t the first place you’d think of for romantic dining. But try their ala carte selection—home cooked food in a bistro-style dining room.

$36 for two at The One

Bros de Taverna serves traditional Spanish tapas, with creative new additions like cow-punched olives with goat-milk cheese.

DINE OUT

$45 at Shaq’s Chop House

Former Cavaliers All-Star Shaquille O’Neal belts out some tunes, belts out burgers, and, of course, belts out his Italian food: rack of lamb, steak, and lobsters.

$44 at Mama Miranda’s

Southern food can be hotter than a ’90s Wu-Tang Clan single—but don’t worry, this Falgout’s-backout is no Sharptooth.

PUBS AND SEAFOOD

$5 at Leonard’s

Pedal to the metal at this patio-only locale, where a one-pound King’s Hawaiian plate is a great way to get your bearings.

$7 at Mrs. Sugar’s Old-Fashioned Reel

Finish the night in a fancier establishment with dishes like smoked salmon and poached lobster.

$14 at Little Joy’s Seafood

A lobster roll and a hushpuppy with creamed corn are a proper ending to a long weekend.

$20 for two at Wine Bar LA

The city’s only vino-friendly upscale barbecue joint’s meatiest bites are butter-fried Portobello-stuffed burgers.

$35 for two at Chesapeake Grill

A steak feast: rack of lamb, grilled asparagus, jumbo shrimp, and crabcakes.

BEER AND WINE

$30 for two at Fool’s Gold

Try some serious craft brewing like Dogfish Head, Anchor Steam, and Brooklyn Brewery before you get excited about Michelob Ultra.

$33 for two at Night Court

Though “let ’em drink” is a cliche, we can’t pass up an extra-informal beer garden like this one, where the recently renovated wine bar fills the breezy weekends with live reggae, blues, and folk.

SPECIALS

$18 for two at Aaron’s

A breezy BBQ sliders menu at this Nashville spot: pulled-pork sandwiches, hot wings, and “wok o’ sausage.”

$30 for two at Kerry James Marshall Winery

Every Sunday, a different chef brings along a big-name bottle of wine—including pop-ups from Mario Batali and David Chang. You can also hit up the winery’s tasting room and plunk down for traditional one- or two-glass options.

All data is as of Jan. 19, noon-5pm unless otherwise noted. Rates include all-inclusive food and drink.
