Celebrity-chef John Besh has dazzled the culinary world with his prowess on the plate and his Southern-boy charm, but his most impressive feat might be this restaurant inside the National World War II Museum—worth visiting even if you skip the exhibits. The menu updates comfort fare like heirloom tomato soup served in a can or a sloppy Joe made from short ribs. This is also a fun spot for kids: the efficient staff wear period garb and children's meals are served in lunch
boxes. Accompany your meal with a seasonal milk shake or, if you're of age, a well-made retro cocktail like a Pink Squirrel or Singapore Sling.
