At Don Pepe Mexican Restaurant, an expansive menu of fajitas, burritos, and steaks illustrates the breadth and depth of the Mexican culinary tradition. Nachos in 10 varieties greet diners with juicy morsels of chicken or beef and a crunch that could wake a jet-lagged Rip Van Winkle. Enchiladas team up with tacos or tamales to form hearty combos, or go solo to showcase classic Mexican ingredients such as poblano peppers and green tomatillos. Quesadillas can be stuffed with vegetarian-friendly fillings, such as mushrooms, or meaty delights, such as house-made chorizo. To round out meals, xangos come with a dusting of cinnamon sugar that impresses sweet teeth as much as a coating of edible diamonds.

The chefs at Chopstix top their artistic maki, sashimi, and hand rolls with vibrant caviar and crunchy tempura flakes, entertaining guests who dine at the sleek, black sushi bar. Behind the kitchen's doors, chefs quickly sauté meats and seafood on their hot hibachi grill or on the stove, the enticing aromas of tangy teriyakis and saucy curries wafting to customers as a prelude to arriving meals. In fairer weather, diners may choose to sit outside on the restaurant's patio or remain inside at large banquettes with plenty of room for leg stretching.

Although tomatoes top the grocery list each week at Twisted Tomato, the pizzeria's most prominent ingredient might be cheese. It's melted inside crispy pizza rolls and calzones, layered across 7- or 14-inch grinders, and sprinkled over hand-spun specialty pizzas such as the Maui Wowi, which is generously topped with ham, pineapple, and plane tickets to Hawaii. Additionally, parmesan, provolone, and blue cheese abound on Twisted Tomato's salads, and cheesecake makes a sweet ending for a dairy-driven meal.
