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”).
