The Best Summer Dinner Recipes, Without a Grill

At Food52, we love to grill. In fact, in the summer months, we're often glued to our grill. We cherish it, rely on it, nurture it and use it for everything we can think of.

But when we need a break from our grill -- or, if we find ourselves without one -- we can still throw fabulous dinner parties; we can still entertain with ease, with style. Here are 10 summer mains that are party-worthy and impressive, no grill required.
