About the Owners

Maria didn’t think she’d inherited her Italian father’s talent for cooking until her 40s, when she met Nikos. Nikos grew up amongst olive groves in Greece before taking off for the US, where he knew he could fulfill his dreams of opening a restaurant and raising a family. Those dreams certainly came true—he met Maria, married her, inspired her to tap into her cooking abilities, and opened Arcadia. Together, they serve a truly eclectic menu that celebrates both of their cultural heritages.

When to Go: dinnertime. The restaurant is only open from 3:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m..

It is a rare occurrence to spot someone sitting still at BZ's Sports Bar. The dimly lit neighborhood joint exudes energy as friends shoot pool along the three tables and play darts in between clinking glasses of frosty brews or crisp cocktails. Others compete in games of shuffleboard or hunch over pinball machines, illuminated in glimmering arcade lights and neon beer signs. Competitors gather at the bar for occasionally scheduled shuffleboard and pool tournaments, playing for fun prizes and a chance to stroke the mustache of the handsomest bartender. To sustain this lively activity, the bar's chefs whip up a hearty menu of handmade burgers, fried seafood, and plump chicken wings.

Every Saturday and Sunday morning, the chefs whip up brunch dishes such as huevos rancheros and taco omelets.
