You know you want to go out for dinner, that's the easy part. Now the tough questions -- where do you want to go? What are you in the mood for? And what are you going to pick once you've got a menu in hand? A person can get overwhelmed with options when it comes to going out to eat. There are so many restaurants offering so many different types of food. But if you know where you to look, you can find places that make it their mission to do one thing and do it well.

We've put together a slideshow of some awesome restaurants that do just that. After a long day at the office or with the kids, sometimes it's just easier to let someone else do the picking for you. We are happy to oblige. 

These restaurants make their simple, comfort-food dishes the heart of what they do. Some make nothing but grilled cheese all day. Others focus on chocolates or cake pops. We're getting hungry just thinking about it. So take a look at our slideshow and help us decide what we're having for dinner tonight!

    Macbar takes all things mac and cheese and banishes everything else! Good! Now we can all focus on what matters -- the cheese and noodles. They take their macaroni seriously -- as evident by even the shape of their takeout containers.

  • Peanut Butter and Co.

    Few things are as comforting as the simple joys of peanut butter and jelly. This is the whole idea behind Peanut Butter and Co. With hit sandwiches like the Elvis special, we can only assume your lunch will leave you all shook up.

    Who loves bacon? David Burke loves bacon. That's why he's dedicated his entire new restaurant to singing the porcine product's praises. If you crave not the most delicious of bacon related products, you better not visit Burke's Bacon Bar.

    At Max Brenner chocolate is the name of the game. It is also the name of your pizza, your post-dinner cocktail, and any other concoction you desire to dine upon while sitting in this chocolate-filled wonderland. If you liked Willy Wonka, you'll love Max Brenner.

  • Rice to Riches

    Rice pudding! Rice pudding for everyone! That's the philosophy at Rice to Riches and it's one we can totally get behind. Their inventive list of flavor selections ("Sex Drugs and Rocky Road" or "Almond Shmalmond" to name a few) have us intrigued, entertained -- and hungry!

  • Le Relais de Venise


    Fine dining doesn't have to mean being bowled over by too many choices. At Le Relais de Venise, they keep it simple with steak and French fries. There is absolutely nothing not to love about this simple, delicious gourmet treat.
