Rico's Italian Pizza tosses its dough disks by hand before slathering them with sauce, sprinkling them with tasty toppings, baking them to a bubbly golden brown, and sending them off to inhabit the menu. Proto-pizzas begin their journey by taking circular form as a thin, medium, or thick crust, then sprouting any combination of the 19 available toppings, including salami ($12.45+). Specialty pies, such as the generously topped carnivore, squash the possibility of intense topping debates with prearranged layers of pepperoni, salami, italian sausage, linguica, and canadian bacon ($14.95).
Every day, the cooks at Rancho Fresco Mexican Grill craft fresh batches of salsa and handmade tortillas to accessorize their menu of south-of-the-border favorites. Burritos, tortas, and tacos overflow with tender morsels of barbacoa, carnitas, or shredded chicken, and another authentic meat, tripe, makes a cameo appearance in menudo on the weekends. The eatery cultivates a casual, laid-back atmosphere, like a retail outlet that only sells sweatpants and hospital gurneys.
The Firkin & Fox sparks sputtering hunger engines with a menu of traditional British edibles and pub grubables. Explore the beer-battered strata of the traditional fish 'n' chips ($9.99 for one piece, $12.99 for two) or the crisped crust of the chicken pot pie, whose edible atmosphere consists of pulled chicken, vegetables, and gravy ($10.99). Bun-centric diners can opt for the Firkin burger, with jack cheese, bacon, and bourbon-chipotle onions ($10.99), or the chili-cheese dog, a beef frank draped in homemade chili and melted cheese ($9.99). For those that enjoy more fermented accompaniment with their meal or live-action chess game, Firkin & Fox offers 16 different beers on tap, such as Hops of Wrath and Boddingtons, and stows a selection of house and premium wines.
In the fresh breeze of the outdoor patio, guests savor Harvest Moon Restaurant’s full breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes, which draw inspiration from the sea’s multitude of flavors, mixed with classic Southern influences.

The skilled sandwich makers at Piccadilly Deli forge customer-created sandwiches with a menu of amply stacked ingredients such as tender roast beef and chicken salad. Patrons can partner up to ascend a regal mountain of egg or tuna salad or mine for smoked ham or turkey under strata of crisp lettuce and a choice of cheese. Mortadella, dry salami, and danish ham all loaf in between a choice of bready borders, including wheat rolls, multigrain, or sourdough bread. After polishing off handheld morsels, tables of two can divine the future by reading the fizzy remnants of two medium sodas.
Skewers loaded with chopped veggies, meats, and shrimp sizzle atop oversize grills in the bustling kitchen at Magic Skewers Restaurant. Waiters ferry speared eats through the wood-paneled dining room to hungry diners waiting in high-backed booths, or wrap up to-go orders for patrons to munch or javelin-toss through their car windows on their way home.
