Upscale Luxbar's signature sliders come in many varieties. In addition to the regular mini-burger and filet mignon versions, you can get turkey sliders, Kobe sliders with caramelized onions or truffle butter and bacon, blackened tilapia sliders with tartar sauce, crab cake sliders with hot pink mayo, even buttermilk fried chicken sliders with bacon mayo and tomato.

Charlie Gitto's "On the Hill"
St. Louis, Missouri

You won't find toasted ravioli -- the meat-filled pasta pockets breaded and deep-fried, served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping -- almost anywhere but on the menus of St. Louis. Charlie Gitto's is one of several places that lay claim to inventing the dish in the 1940s, and the only one still in business.

4. Chicken Tenders
Good Dog Bar

At the Good Dog, people say "bone appetit!" to the chicken tenders cordon bleu, which come wrapped in Black Forest ham and Swiss cheese, and are lightly breaded and fried and served with a side of honey-grain mustard sauce. The Dog does a twist on fried mozzarella sticks, too, using house-aged mozzarella and serving them with tomato-vodka dipping sauce.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
