The vast dimensions of Grazie! Grille’s interior are matched by its sizeable menu of American and internationally inspired dishes. Amid the lofty ceilings and a roaring, stone fireplace, plates of steaming pasta emerge from the kitchen, while next door in the dining room, groups share meals or rousing games of telephone in cozy booths. Grazie! Grille also strives to play a part in its community by promoting charities, local events, and fundraisers.

Though the flavorful combinations are seemingly endless, there's one thing you can count on from the pizza at Bravos Pizza & Italian restaurant: freshly baked crust topped with whole-milk mozzarella and creamy sauces. Chefs create a multitude of options by customizing pies from the crust up. They smear the pies with a choice of red, white, garlic, or barbecue sauces, which they then top with ingredients as different as pineapple and artichokes. To create their specialty pizzas, they combine complementary flavors, such as the seafood combo's shrimp, baby clams, and garlic over a white-sauce base. But the chefs don't just make pizzas. They also craft traditional Italian favorites, from veal scallopini to fettucini tossed in pesto. Diners can enjoy meals while sipping wine or beer as they watch the restaurant's big-screen TV to figure out which sports team has the strongest t-shirt cannon.
Sid Fanarof, inspired by the artists around him, sought to do something creative in the kitchen. ZPizza, which started in Laguna Beach and now has locations across the globe, fills with bustling chefs experimenting with ingredients traditionally associated with Indian, Californian, and Mexican cuisine. A parade of organic vegetables and skim-milk mozzarella from Wisconsin leads into the eateries, and organic wheat flour bakes over open flame to a crisp finish. “If you don’t hear the crunch, it’s not a ZPizza,” Fanarof says of the crusts on his website.
Chefs first slather the crusts with sweet basil pesto, roasted-garlic sauce, or organic tomato sauce. Their hands flutter across, sprinkling on fistfuls of toppings such as MSG-free pepperoni, additive-free sausage, three types of mushrooms, roasted eggplant, and pine nuts. Vegan cheese and gluten-free crusts allow everyone to enjoy the pizzas except for those trying to hide the fact that they superglued their mouths closed.
The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
Peek through Laurus Bistro's open-exhibition kitchen to watch executive chef Matthew Silverman concoct his contemporary Mediterranean fare, greeting diners with a fresh and daily-changing lunch and dinner menu. Pair an eligible spicy pita chip with the white-bean hummus ($9) or sip the truffled cauliflower bisque ($4–$8) to prime your mouth motors before revving up for the wood-fired pepperoni caesar flatbread, a savory dish with crisp romaine lettuce, shaved asiago, and tomato sauce ($6–$12). Alternatively, you can carefully snorkel through the bouillabaisse's broth to find mussels, clams, and halibut ($14–$25) or gently guide a flavorful flock of lamb Bolognese and tagliatelle ($9–$17) to your mouth pasture.
