Chefs at Amici Ristorante stir pots of their house made sauces to pair with linguini and tortellini or bake with their veal parimgiana. Along with their menu of classic Italian dishes, the restaurant owners also stock their bar with wines from Italy and around the world.
It should come as no surprise that pizza is a specialty at JUST PIZZA & Wing Co. The restaurant's cooks infuse specialty crusts with sesame seeds, lemon pepper, and other seasonings, pile on fresh cheese and toppings such as sirloin steak and tiger shrimp, and even bake whole-wheat and gluten-free pies. But contrary to its name, JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s menu doesn't end there—non-doughy options include chicken wings in a variety of sauces. Patrons can even explore possible wine pairings on JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s website.
The chivalrous pizza crafters of Sir Ben's Pizza deftly prepare a menu featuring pizzas, wings, salads, and subs, helping to slay even the most ferocious of hungers. Give fathers a selfless gift of 24 wings ($14.99), or have him dig into a verdant culinary creation such as the grilled chicken salad ($5.95). Olives and green peppers peppered with house dressing snuggle up to the spirals of the tri-color pasta salad ($1.95+) just like a napping mechanic to his favorite monkey wrench, and a 16-inch specialty pizza ($14.99) graces taste buds with tasty accouterments such as crisp chicken fingers and comes with a complimentary two-liter soda. Lunch specials ($5) include sub sandwiches, served piping hot or refreshingly cool with chips and a 20-ounce drink, which energize eaters looking to hike a scenic trail while wearing their scuba gear.
When Mike's Subs first opened in 1956, the menu was simple: cold-cut subs, on untoasted buns, topped with the kitchen's only condiment: Mike's Special oil. Mike's prepares hot and cold subs alike, such as buffalo chicken and sausage spinach, which are topped with rich sauces, vegetables such as mushrooms and garlic, and cheese such as provolone and sharp cheddar. While chefs slice sandwiches lengthwise, deep fryers bubble with french fries or onion rings, and pizza pies are made with ingredients like their traditional buffalo pizza. Mike's also arranges party platters of dinner rolls, meats, and cheeses, which allow parties of up to 40 people to build their own sandwiches. Mike's has also recently expanded with a full dining room.
Canvas@1206's comforting American fare accompanies a wealth of spirited drinks and live musical performances.

Going beyond the bounds of the interior space, each in-house performance streams live on the restaurant's radio app. Canvas@1206 also keeps patrons stimulated with breakfast offerings and complimentary WiFi.
With a staff headlined by master chef Pauly Souffle, Acropolis boasts a menu bursting at the seams with Greek-inspired grub and international dishes. A Trojan-bowl filled to the brim with daily soup ($3.50) infiltrates unsuspecting tasters with astounding homemade flavor, while the hummus roasted red pepper ($8) lunch appetizer is a sweet siren song of pureed chickpeas, garlic, lemon oil, and roasted pepper served with pita bread. In celebration of ancient Greece's luminous east coast, diners can feast on a New York strip steak ($14), featuring a 12 oz. slice of meat and choice of sides. Like giving a grizzly bear the car keys during a family camping trip, the gyro dinner ($12) extends an olive branch to bellowing stomachs in the form of Greek salad, potato or rice pilaf, tzatziki, and pita bread. Kids can strengthen their bones as the Spartan youth before them by battling a grilled cheese sandwich backed by an army of fries ($3.95)––then wash down their foes with a naval fleet comprised of chocolate milk ($2.25) and Oreo milkshakes ($3.50). Doused in warm lighting, this attractive eatery is garnished with burnished wood floors and exposed brick walls for an extra-pleasant dining experience. A recently added bar means potent potables can complement the already tasty meals, or simply serve as a prop to lean against with coolly feigned disinterest.
