#ForksOut: New Restaurants as of October 1, 2022

We're seeing a theme in this week's new Dinova restaurant partners: local gems. If you're the type who loves to eat like a local and truly experience the culture of the cities you visit on business, you're in luck! On this list, you'll find where you can sample one of the "Best Beers in America," savor great Texas-style barbecue when you're not in Texas, and spoil your team with fabulous catering spreads.

Oneonta, NY

Brooks’ House of Bar-B-Q has been specializing in “farm to table” before it was cool. Brooks’ catering business started in the 1950s as an offshoot of the family farm. It still excels at corporate catering, with 500 on-site barbecues per year, but the award-winning barbecue behemoth now includes a dine-in restaurant. If your business travels take you to this beautiful region, stop in for some ‘cue and a bottle of Brooks’ famous sauce.

New York, NY

The culinary team at Crave are experts at crafting memorable experiences for everyone in your business dining party, including those with plant-based, keto, or gluten-sensitive diets. The menu lives up to its name, with unique and crave-able options like lobster avocado toast, an indulgent Wagyu burger, and sushi boats for the table. Open for lunch, dinner, and happy hour, Crave also offers a variety of corporate catering options.

Sherwood Park, CAN

Each Earls location has a unique, curated menu and vibe. If you’re venturing to Alberta’s Sherwood Park neighborhood, prepare to be delighted. Earls excels at crafting exciting new cocktails and perfecting the timeless. Its menu has different cuisines to please any client or colleague (locals recommend the hot chicken sandwich or salt and pepper wings). There is not one, but TWO happy hours daily: from 2 to 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to close.

2 locations in FL and WI

Have you checked out what’s new at Firehouse Subs lately? Four words: Prime Rib Steak Sub. Slow-cooked for up to 12 hours, it’s perfect for when you need a quick-yet-ridiculously-satisfying business meal when you’re traveling or just plain busy. Firehouse is also offering a deal on a different medium sub for every day of the week, plus platters, box lunches, and salads for when you need to feed a group.

Seattle, WA

You don’t have to be in Texas to enjoy its bold Tex-Mex flavors. Located in Seattle’s vibrant Columbia City neighborhood, Jackalope restaurant has all the flavors you crave — even incorporating Texas-style smoked meats. Complement your business meal with an authentic tequila cocktail, like the Thorny Ranch Water or Paloma Rustica. And because basically everyone in your office loves Tex-Mex, Jackalope makes a superb choice for catering.

Bellingham, WA

Famous for its Southern hospitality and “soul-warming” food, Jack’s BBQ is a unique spot to enjoy the unbeatable taste of Central Texas barbecue right in Bellingham. Jack’s Thanksgiving Dinner, featuring turkey smoked overnight and delicious sides, is perfect for team Thanksgiving celebrations. For all other on-site occasions, try Jack’s group takeout menu or its full-service catering (including bar packages). Of course, you can always dine in at the full-service restaurant!

Founder Mark Erwin opened the first Mark’s restaurant in an old feed store and has since opened several restaurants (3 currently in the Dinova network) and passed down his cooking secrets for three generations. It’s no wonder Mark’s Feed Store has earned accolades from Southern Living, TOPS, and more. Mark’s full-service catering (including a fabulous breakfast menu) is perfect for a host of business events. Hot tip: the buttermilk pie is a must-try.

Portland, OR

Joining Dinova’s roster of business-grade brewpubs is Portland’s Wayfinder Beer, a lager-centric brewery that combines old and new-school techniques to push the envelope. But it’s more than just award-winning beers. You and your team can also sip cocktails or wines while you savor elevated pub food like the Schnitzel Sandwich or Mac & Beer Cheese. If you have to pick one beer, we recommend the Terrifica, named one of the Best Beers in America by Bloomberg.
