Deets: If you find yourself sneaking bites of your charge’s kids-menu grilled cheese, just suck it up already and go get your own. Dig into the adult version at Maison Darras, which happens to be a skillfully smashed panini. Too many Panini handlers skimp on the melty goodness, or flatten into crumbly oblivion. But not the kids at MD, who know how to keep the turkey in the crusty bundle, all bound by beautiful provolone. Oh, and you can have crème brulee, for the win.
