1. Trina's Starlite Lounge
Every dog has its day at Trina's. Literally. For Josh Childs, every day is a new chance to reinvent one the classic dogs as something brilliantly daring — miso bourbon glaze and home-made kimchee, for example — or mouthwateringly indulgent, like a split-top served with melted cheddar, meatloaf, and gravy. New tricks, indeed.
