FA MILY NIGHT! SUNDAY Orrman's Cheese Shop adds a layer of goat cheese to its peanut butter and triple berry jelly sandwich, then finishes the sandwich like a grilled cheese. The result is a good thing made 10,000 times better. MAC AND CHEESE MONDAY Choose from four different mac and cheese "bowls" at The Local. Philly style marries the beloved noodle dish with cheesesteak, and Buffalo Bill comes as spicy as the city that invented the Buffalo chicken wing. TUESDAY Gather the entire family around the table for an authentic Italian homestyle experience at Mama Ricotta's, where the family-size spaghetti and meatballs serves two to three people. Add a second family portion of a different pasta for a fun tasting experience. WEDNESDAY Take a trip down cafeteria memory lane with the Roasting Company's Wednesday special: chicken pot pie. These chicken connoisseurs bring together roasted bird, peas, carrots and celery in a dish that is sure to jog some memories. THURSDAY Jonesing for your college diet? Find out what real ramen tastes like at Futo Buta. Among the eatery's eight varieties is the Tonkotsu—pork bone broth with pecan- smoked pork belly, scallion, organic mushrooms, onsen egg, pickled ginger, nori, sesame and black garlic. FRIDAY Noda Bodega spices up what you knew as the grilled cheese sandwich with their smoky Down South Grilled cheese—a ciabatta roll slathered with homemade Chipotle pimiento cheese. SATURDAY Adam Sandler memorialized the Sloppy Joe in song, and the Diamond Restaurant will have you belting out the lyrics with their comforting classic—just like they've been doing it since 1945. SWEET TREAT Remember Dunkaroos, that fabled 90s confectionary? Now, imagine that in ice cream form. Try it at Golden Cow Creamery, the Queen City's first craft ice cream parlor.
