To make these five dishes inspired by popular restaurant variations, simply turn to your kitchen's versatile and nutrition-packed key player.

Going out to eat in New York City is kind of a sport. Discovering which restaurant is popular but not too popular, reasonably priced, with great food and ambiance is a challenge when facing off against millions of other New Yorkers, but determining which delicious dish to order can be even harder.

But, sometimes, the game gets too exhausting. I don’t feel like fighting two-hour wait times, listening to dining neighbors bicker over wine bottles, or spending way more money than necessary. Fortunately, retreating to my cozy apartment doesn’t have to mean compromising on dinner. With a little bit of planning, I can have my curly fries and eat them, too. To prove it, here are five of my favorite restaurant dishes that I (and you!) can enjoy at home—the dining game can wait for another day.
