Spaghetti and Seafood Works was originally built as a water park in 1979 before owner Jay Kenigsberg turned his eye to culinary thrills and cultivated a menu of fresh daily seafood, from-scratch pizzas, and other traditional Italian eats. Cordially invite chompers and ordained sea captains to the Seafood Feast's marriage of shrimp, fish, and crab cake ($25.99). The Giant Pasta Platter houses a noodle masterpiece of fettuccine alfredo and lasagna trimmed with manicotti and meatballs ($15.99). Mozzarella vines snare inattentive oregano shakers and customized pizza toppings, such as meatballs and Italian sausage ($9.50 for 12"; $10.99 for 16"; toppings $0.99+ each), and the the Dome steak's phyllo-dough ceiling shelters an 8-ounce fillet mignon slathered in dijon mustard ($23.99).
Intent on supplying diners with healthy choices by making flavorful, readily available food, the chefs at Urban Fare Cafe craft a menu that mingles Mediterranean, Indian, Asian, and African cuisines. Piquant soups such as the carrot bisque with ginger and mint pair with guiltless sandwiches and wraps such as the Montreal-style roast beef. Alternatively, whole-grain-wheat pizzas stand in for starchier pies, and cooks prepare rice bowls with either white or brown rice. Baristas emit the aromas of roasted coffee beans throughout the eatery by brewing espresso drinks and practicing levitation with café mugs.
A towering chalkboard announces the menu at Chef Mark's restaurant, which certified executive chef Mark Carpenter erases and redrafts each day. Drawing from nearly 40 years of experience, Carpenter oversees an experienced kitchen staff as they whip up hearty comfort breakfasts and lunches from scratch. The restaurant's countertops steam with freshly made platters of pot roasts, meatloaf, and pork chops, and a salad bar showcases colorful vegetables and dressings. Meanwhile, a dessert bar is piled high with trays of warm cinnamon buns, crusty rolls, cookies, and pies. After selecting their meals, customers retire to a sunlit dining room filled with white-clothed tables. The welcoming, communal atmosphere is accentuated by decorative flower arrangements, a bookshelf of reading material, and a prohibition on duck hunting of any kind.
