Timeline Top 5

Our staff picks the best of whatever, not the best of all time, just the best of right now.
Maplewood Funky Food
1. Boogaloo
Swings hang from the ceiling. Cuban/Creole/Caribbean cuisine. Looks and acts like a bar, but the food is outstanding. Whatever the special is, order that.
2. Maya Café
Pan-Latin food means yummy dishes from Costa Rica. They make their salsa every day. Live music. Sidewalk seating is perfect for people watching in this quirky neighborhood.
3. Tiffany’s Original Diner
Open 24 hours. Cheap and tasty. Red vinyl top stools and a long counter, that’s it, no tables. So old school there is no website (gotta love that), so enter this address into MapQuest: 7402 Manchester Road.
4. Acere
Pronounced AH’-chair-oh, it means “Maple” in Italian. Fitting. Food is artistic and simplistic at the same time, but not inexpensive. Try the egg ravioli.
5. Crow’s Nest
Metal Brunch? Really? Sunday brunch with heavy metal? Yep. Dishes like Truffle Frites, house-made lemon coriander hummus, veggie chili in a pretzel bowl, meatloaf sliders. Rock on freaks.
Also Try: Home Wine Kitchen (upscale American comfort food), Las Palmas (no website, it’s at 7356 Manchester Road), and Pantera’s Pizza (delicious dive, home of “The Hunk”).
