Maple Bacon Gelato Shake

Known for its traditional Italian gelato and fresh seasonal ingredients, Vivoli il Gelato is bringing the bacon trend to desserts. The shake is made with maple gelato spun with milk and bacon bits. The gelato is stuffed inside a white chocolate-dipped waffle cone and topped with whipped cream and a crispy bacon strip.

Chicken + Avocado Club Flatbread

Known for their locally-sourced, scratch-made flatbreads, Pinstripes' chicken and avocado club flatbread is a top choice among customers. First, they start with hand-stretched dough made with imported Italian ingredients. Then, they smother on melted provolone, Applewood smoked bacon, chicken, vine-ripe tomatoes, red onion and fresh avocado. The secret is the wood-fire pizza grill which makes these ingredients come together for the perfect taste.

DB 'Clothesline Candied Bacon'

The candied bacon dish is always a crowd-pleaser at The Edison. Seasoned with maple and black pepper, the four thickly-cut strips of juicy bacon are flanked on either side with sprigs of fresh rosemary, all of which is lightly torched right before serving.

BBQ Bacon Wahlbowl

Wahlburgers features a BBQ-bacon bowl with all of actor Donnie Wahlberg's favorite fixings: a hamburger, white cheddar, bacon, jalapenos and house-made avocado spread. All the ingredients are chopped then tossed with mixed greens and house-made BBQ dressing.

Figgy Piggy

Tom's Urban doesn't like the expression "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's why they came out with a twist on the traditional grilled cheese sandwich. The sandwich is layered with Applewood smoked bacon, melted fontina, brie and Havarti cheeses, then topped with Croatian fig on butter-toasted sourdough bread.

The Provocateur

SafeHouse offers the ultimate Black Ops burger selections, and The Provocateur is fit for the highest-ranking agents. This operative includes a hand-pattied burger topped with a spreadable brie and bacon jam that's sure to incite you and your fellow agents. Accompanied by the choice of freshly-cut French fries or cole slaw, this selection will make any double agent crack at its sight.

Cup O' Beef Bacon

Smith & Wollensky features a bacon appetizer that is a true one-of-a-kind dish, exclusive to the iconic steakhouse brand. The beef bacon was created by executive chef Matt King, who indulged his curiosity in combining two of his favorite things: beef and bacon. It's beef belly, cured with a special, secret mix and smoked. The beef bacon is served in a Mason jar with a side of bleu cheese fondue for dipping.

Fries With the Works

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken offers French fries that are layered with melted aged cheddar, smoked bacon and sour cream.

Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Great Wolf Lodge's chocolate-covered bacon is always a top dish. The four thickly-cut strips of juicy bacon are dunked in just the right blend of milk and white chocolate to create the perfect swirl.
