A café, coffee roaster, and bakery, Pastiche is suffused with the aroma of freshly baked bread and entrees cooked from scratch. The fine-dining, four-course dinner serves twosomes an ever-changing menu of house-roasted meats, appetizers, and desserts under the flickering glow of candles and a moon whose dimmers have been set to “romantic.” Meals commence with appetizers such as cheese plates or meatballs, followed by mixed-green salads awash in house-made buttermilk ranch or herb vinaigrette dressing. Entrees including coq au vin or pork tenderloin are sidekicked with au gratin potatoes and house-made bread serving both as a butter canvas and plate-squeegee. Cap off meals with freshly made tiramisu or turtle cheesecake paired with a specialty coffee or frappe. Diners can take advantage of the no-fee BYOB to augment their meal with preferred sips of suds or vino and take time to enjoy the annual Christmas in Canton "City of Lights" event.
The aroma of ribs slowly roasting over pure pecan-wood chips wafts through Uncle Fuller's BBQ as cooks assemble pulled-pork, beef-brisket, and sausage sandwiches slathered in savory sauce. The menu sticks to soul-satisfying fare, accompanied by homestyle sides such as baked beans and turnip greens. Diners have the option of eating in or carrying slabs of ribs back home and can also order meats and sides in bulk to provision large parties or one mildly peckish T. rex.
The sounds of metal against metal reverberate through the interior of Hokkaido Hibachi Grill & Sushi Bar, as showy hibachi chefs delight their audiences with knives, spatulas, and safely airborne morsels of food. The chef stands in the center of an audience and orchestrates a fiery feast upon the hibachi grill. Steak, salmon, and scallops all transform under the chefs’ flashy techniques; each has a different repertoire of tricks, but they almost always perform the “volcano” maneuver that displays controlled spouts of flame. The atmosphere is a bit quieter behind the sushi bar, as a chef with 18 years of experience carefully rolls and slices fish that’s brought in daily and shushes anyone with enough gall to cut their food with a jackhammer. Earth-toned stone walls surround Hokkaido’s interior, which generates an upscale vibe with sleek dark chairs and booths. Large front windows admit streams of sunlight during the day, and hanging lamps exude a golden light over booths at night. To accompany flame-kissed or rice-wrapped food, bartenders pour specialty drinks at the bar, such as the Funky Monkey with banana liquor and piña colada mix, or teetotal with bubbly Japanese Sprite.
The owners of Wings To Go set up shop in the summer of 1985. They were surprised when customers began streaming in from a nearby beach, hungry from days spent lolling on the warm sand and playing in the waves. Sauce-drenched wings and grilled catfish sandwiches sated those beachgoers' appetites, and today, the eatery's cooks marinate meats at five locations. Among the restaurant's 20 sauces are a Cajun blend and a Caribbean jerk sauce that combines sweetness and waves of rolling warmth. The hot sauce, menacingly dubbed “Homicide,” is ideal when you need to show off a tolerance for spice or pretend to be crying at your boss’ terrible production of Carmen.
The chefs at Red Samurai Hibachi Express specialize in genuine Japanese and hibachi-style cooking techniques that showcase a high level of culinary skill and speed. They sear onions, tender scallops, and savory cuts of steak fresh to order, and then serve the still-sizzling morsels directly to plates. Diners can also opt for yakisoba noodles flavored with soy sauce and ginger or sushi rolls laden with snow crab or crawfish. Meals are available for both dine in and take out.
