In the kitchen, cooks prepare dishes of lo mein and pad thai fresh to order and artfully plate signature creations such as an Asian sloppy joe or Wong's Hot Chicken, their take on general tso's chicken.

Fresh from opening its doors earlier this year, The Wood's friendly neighborhood noshing quarters envelopes incomers in tasty pub eats, a comfy vibe, and lively local music. Hungry patrons excitedly wobble their dowsing rods over the varied menu, which yields a wide array of edible treasures. Stoke dormant taste buds with a pound of jumbo hot wings ($8), then fan the flames with each tasty leaf found in the stacked house salad ($3 small, $5 large). The 16-inch cheese pizza ($10) is outfitted with a flavorful garlic- and herb-brushed crust that's perfectly equipped for sharing and thwarting small-time crooks, and lonely tongue boxers can find an adequate sparring partner in the Not Quite French Dip sandwich ($8).

The friendly staff at Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream and Treatery churns dozens of creamy flavors fresh each day before enhancing frozen creations with inventive mix-ins and toppings.

Aside from other avant-garde dessert offerings—which include ice-cream cupcakes—the staff slings frozen favorites including cones, creamy milkshakes, and ice-cream cakes.
Occasional appearances by Miss Maggie Moo, the business's iconic cow, delight customers. She also lends her services to fundraising efforts for local schools and charities.
801 Chophouse approaches the Platonic form of a special-occasion restaurant, where every table might well hold a ring in a hidden box or a couple celebrating an anniversary. There are the white tablecloths popping against dark leather booths, the racks of wine tended by a certified sommelier, the encyclopedic list of single-malt scotches, and, of course, the chops and steaks, all USDA Prime. On the other hand, it's quite conceivable that someone might gladly eat at 801 Chophouse every week—the menu and drink selection could accommodate months of exploration, and an ever-changing "fresh sheet" overflows with the seafood selections of the day.
On any given night, the wait staff moves across wooden floors beneath high ceilings and 1920s-inspired decor, trays loaded with Maine lobster pulled live from the tank, nine creative potato preparations, filet mignon, and dry-aged pork chops. Meanwhile, golden calf statues gaze out over the dining room's cherry-wood finishes and granite counters, waiting patiently to graze on uneaten garnishes.
