For the last 50 years, Bova’s Italian Restaurant has created Italian meals. They make every dish, including giant calzones, from scratch. Pastas, pizzas, and sandwiches present savory options for disparate cravings. And for the family who can agree on only two things—pasta and curfew—the menu also includes family-style meals until closing time at 9 p.m. Tuesday–Thursday and 8 p.m. Sunday and Monday.
All of Hash's organic, gluten-free hashes arrive at tables with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients such as mushrooms, sweet yams or corned beef. Its bevy of breakfast plates include everything from flaky croissants to hearty breakfast tacos. Along with its namesake dish, the breakfast joint specializes in sweet and savory breakfast crepes, some even mimicking burritos with shredded pork and green chilies. Locally roasted NOVO Coffee, juices, and speciality coffee drinks complement the day’s first meal.
The flavor maestros at 5 J's Italian Dining compose a menu of authentic Italian pastas, sandwiches, specialty pizzas, and meat-centric entrees. Diners may select an accompaniment of meatballs or sausage for classic marinara-drenched pastas, such as three-cheese ravioli ($9.50) or gnocchi ($9.99). Chefs freshly prepare 5 J's luscious lasagna ($11.99) daily, layering ground beef, sausage, ricotta, mozzarella, basil, and garlic the same way Italian fashion designers do during wintertime. Otherwise, patrons can grab hold of one of the sandwiches, including a meatball sub ($5.99) or italian beef ($5.50), or divvy up a large white pizza ($10.99), which eschews tomato sauce for a more traditional combination of mozzarella, tomatoes, and herbs.
Si Senor skillfully serves a menu abundant with delectable Mexican fare. The Si Senor breakfast sates hungers built while squeezing full-size bricks into legos with two eggs, home fries, two tortillas, green chili, and a choice of crispy bacon or spicy chorizo ($7.25). Lunch seekers can munch on the burrito sampler plate, a medley including four 6-inch burritos ($9.75), and the make-your-own combo allows diners to mix and match items to create a dream team of hunger-conquering eats ($9.95). Cultures collide with the mexican hamburger, a flour tortilla filled with hamburger steak and beans strewn with cheese, lettuce, and tomato and served with rice ($8.75). A range of kid-friendly eats ($4.95) is also available to keep bored tots from starting careers in commercial real estate.
