Bada Bingg assembles ingredients into epicurean-gratifying gourmet sandwiches. Chomp into the namesake Bada Bingg, packed with herb-encrusted top-round steak and caramelized onions coddled in a Portuguese roll and smothered in horseradish aioli ($8). Try the Untouchable, Bada Bingg's twisted take on the BLT topped with Alderfer smoked-bacon confit, house-smoked tomatoes, and crisp lettuce on freshly baked foccacia with cracked-pepper aioli ($6.75). Herbaceous-based noshers can opt for the Goomba, a grilled-portabella cap decorated with sundried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, avocado, and alfalfa sprouts served on a garden gnome’s head ($7.50).
Spice India's chefs follow Punjabi traditions as they cook up authentic northern Indian cuisine to fill hearty lunch buffets with saucy fish curries, lamb vindaloo, and vegetarian paneers. While meaty kabobs cook in tandoori ovens, cooks knead more than 15 specialty breads, including garlic naan, unleavened paneer kulcha filled with homemade cottage cheese, and their house bread stuffed with marinated chicken. Guests can request a preferred level of spiciness to stop dishes from overwhelming their taste buds or setting the tablecloth on fire when spilled. Some nights, a live jazz band plays as guests sip the beer and wine they've brought to this BYOB eatery.
From the outside, Amore Italian & Mediterranean Cuisine is an inviting and welcoming space, thanks to its stone façade and petite, approachable porch. Inside the space, the homey vibe comes alive in the form of classic dishes ranging from the red-pepper-sauce-splashed cheese tortellini to beef kebabs served with pitas and fresh housemade hummus. Hand-tossed pizzas arrive tableside in both circular- or square-crust varieties, both of which can be topped with bacon, eggplant, broccoli, and other gourmet upgrades such as meatballs, apples, and housemade pesto sauce. Diners can also feel free to bring their favorite wine and beer to this BYOB establishment. To maximize mealtime happiness, the chefs prep every dish to order. They also accommodate special requests for those with allergies, vegetarian preferences, or an extreme passion for booster-seat usage.
