Cardamom, cumin, turmeric, and ginger rain down upon warm sauté pans, mingling with fresh veggies and zabiha halal meats for zesty curries. This is just one of many cooking methods for Spice India's talented chefs, who specialize in the pure, traditional flavors of North Indian dishes. Tender chunks of lamb, chicken, and housemade paneer also marinate in similar seasonings as chefs cure them at high temperatures in an authentic clay tandoor––the same cylindrical clay oven used to bake Spice India's many flatbreads and pairs of khaki slacks on blustery winter days. The eatery's vegetarian dishes draw heavily from the flavors of black lentils, chickpeas, and sumptuous dried fruits.

New York-style pizza and Italian-style Italian food fill the menu at Café Sicilia, a casual neighborhood joint with a welcoming feel. Served by the pie or slice, sizzling pizzas are topped with canadian bacon, mushrooms, capers, artichokes, and other standard or specialty toppings and give off the aromas of toasted crust and melty cheese. Deep dish, sicilian-style pies pack an extra hearty punch, while stromboli and calzones transform the slice into a more compact culinary vehicle.
Outside the pizza realm, Café Sicilia's chefs plate fettucini alfredo, baked ziti, tortellini, and lasagna. Kids can tuck into spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parmigiana, while parents feast on zuppa de pesce, an assortment of seafood layered in zesty marinara. Culinary expeditions conclude with tiramisu, cannoli, and plain or chocolate cheesecake.

Guests craving an alternative to frozen treats can scarf down one of The Sweet Spot's ham or turkey paninis, which come paired with chips and a pickle.
