A house-made hummus and yogurt sauce, and a side salad with zippy Italian dressing make this meal a steal at $10. 2425 Atwood Ave., Madison. Steak Frites: Jacs The flavor of this entrée is worth every penny. A 12-ounce NY Strip is cooked any way you'd like, with black cherry-Cabernet pan sauce spooned over top and a pat of garlic-herb compound butter. Brussels sprouts and frites round out the massive meal—easy enough to share with a gluten free friend! $27. 2611 Monroe St., Madison. Feta Dill Burger: Monty's Blue Plate Diner Vacation in Greece with this charbroiled burger for less than the cost of a plane ticket. Kalamata olive tapénade, spinach, tomatoes, red onions, and feta-dill sauce make it a mess to eat, but that's the way it should be! For a $1.50 extra, they'll sandwich your patty between gluten- free bread. 2089 Atwood Ave., Madison. –Corey Dane, Madison's community director for ICE CREAM FOR GROWN-UPS The latest canvas for foodies?
