Shishman Mediterranean Grill

image34

Shishman Mediterranean Grill specializes in authentic halal & gluten free Mediterranean street food. From wraps to fries to rice bowls, everything on the menu is loaded with tasty, fresh ingredients, including homemade sauces and plenty of vegetarian-friendly options (like falafel!). Come try us at Fable Fest to partake in this palate-pleasing cuisine!

Bohemian BBQ

image35

Bohemian BBQ is doing BBQ in their own distinct Bohemian style, infusing an artistic take on tried and true BBQ traditions. Not that you won't find all your favorites here: they've got all those classic meats, cooked low and slow to bring out that smoky aroma and taste. From their signature Bohemian BBQ sundae featuring a base of baked beans layered with pork, brisket, twice baked potato salad and sausage to their Boho frito: their take on a frito pie loaded with beef, pulled pork and shredded cheese, there's a whole lot of heft on this full bodied menu.

Evil Weiner

image36

Hot dogs with NO Rules. We take the classic American hot dog and create new and exciting ways to present it to you. With no rules (hey, we're evil for crying out loud). If it sounds good and breaks some rules, it's on the menu! Evil Wiener uses only the best ingredients, and prepares all of its own toppings, brisket, smoked pulled pork, Carne guisada, and our special seasoning, Evil Dust. Come see us at Fable Fest!

Lick Ice Cream

image37

These artisanal ice creams contain no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup. The owners at Lick pride themselves on being able to trace every ingredient back to its original source, right down to the cows. The ice creams, made with 100% milk cream, come in a variety of meticulously crafted flavors. Move over vanilla and chocolate. Here, you’ll find choices like roasted beets blended with fresh mint and dark chocolate seasoned with olive oil and sea salt. Drooling yet?
