Krua Khun Yah's vast lunch and dinner menus encapsulate the many and varied flavors of Thailand's culinary history with dishes such as massaman curry, tamarind duck, and Bangkok beef. Chefs willingly adjust the spice level of dishes based on how many ounces of sweat bead on customers' brows from just the smell. Authentic ingredients include rich coconut milk and native chilies, and fresh ingredients come from local farmers' markets. Meals are also cooked in pure vegetable oil to bring out each flavor, coaxing any shy ingredients out of hiding.

Steeped in centuries of rich tradition, Italian cuisine relies on quality ingredients and simple preparations to yield beautifully bold flavors. Since 1983, the chefs of Nello’s Cafe have drawn on such traditions to fill their extensive menu with Old-World staples such as lasagna and seafood diavolo, which they serve alongside burgers and other American fare.

Ken's Steak House is an improbable success story. Ken and Florence Hanna opened the Lakeside Cafe in 1935, the throes of the Great Depression. Bite by bite, they built a loyal base of customers (who always just called the eatery "Ken's"), and after five years, the restaurant took up residence in a small diner on Route 9, then known as Starvation Alley.

But Ken dreamed of a day when the grimly named strip would flourish. Today, it's known as the "Golden Mile"—and Ken's Steak House itself has mushroomed. The kitchen still serves the salad dressing recipes created by Florence Hanna—now a national line of salad dressings—and Ken's son, Timothy, and his wife are in charge.

Chefs broil and fire-grill prime cuts of steak, marinating the chateaubriand's center cut roast tenderloin in a reduction of port wine, or infusing the 8-ounce filet mignon with the earthy smoked notes of the warm cedar planks it's served on. Seafood options nestle up against their turf counterparts, including bacon-wrapped scallops, a full pound of lobster stuffed with crab and shrimp, and pistachio-crusted Atlantic salmon. Chicken and pasta dishes round out the menu, and diners discover Italian influences and plenty of seafood-pasta plates. The rustic wood paneling harkens back to Ken's Steak House's roots, and the upscale fare and soft light cast from chandeliers make the spot an ideal choice for an anniversary dinner or a piñata's last meal.

For three decades, the chefs at Aegean Restaurant have skillfully sautéed and seared authentic Greek cuisine. Although prices vary slightly at each location, both the Framingham and Watertown menus boast an array of traditional treats such as mousaka—towering stories of wind-resistant eggplant mortared with cheese and béchamel sauce ($12.95–$14.95)—and stuffed grape leaves ($12.95–$15.95). Specialties range from sautéed shrimp blanketed in melted feta ($16.95–$19.95) to skewered lamb souvlaki ($12.95–$16.95), which playfully fences with a swashbuckling squadron of seasonings. Diners sup comfortably at tables draped in crisp white tablecloths in the restaurant's spacious dining rooms, which can accommodate large groups for corporate meetings or Trojan War reenactments.

Green Chili's family of flavor aficionados melds more than 49 years of culinary know-how and worldwide travel with international influences to populate an extensive menu of classic Indian and American entrees. Diners can sample an assortment of traditional Indian dishes, including mint-tinged chicken tikka ($6.99) tucked neatly into a spinach, white, or wheat wrap. Shrimp curry ($10.50) zings taste buds with zesty spices and socially relevant one-liners, and a sky-high veggie sandwich ($6.50) buttresses layers of onion, sautéed potatoes, and cilantro between thick slices of bread. To quell crack-of-dawn cravings, Green Chili whips up breakfast items throughout the day, as well as fluffy Indian pancakes ($4.99–$7.99), served with spicy lentil and cool coconut dip. The savory smorgasbord also includes American entrees, such as the Corporate Dog ($3.15–$6.25), a plump hot dog topped with chili, sauerkraut, and upward mobility.
