The menu at Knight's Bistro is decidedly unselfish—its large plates of Italian food encourage the sharing of covetous bites. Diners break off pieces from large specialty pizzas decorated in eggplant cutlets or pass the bruschetta and one of four stuffed shells brimming with ricotta cheese to their neighbor. Plates overflow with pastas dressed in one of eight sauces sopped up by housemade rolls.
Families pass these bites back and forth beneath golden cone-shaped lamps that hang above the restaurant's diner-style booths. The staff permits diners to bring their own libations from home, an easier way to facilitate social dining than forcing people to drink from an eight-pronged crazy straw. Weekly dinner specials also play into the convivial theme: Tuesday nights feature classic clambakes with crab legs, lobster claws, and other seafood, whereas Mondays consolidate a large pizza and four soft drinks under a single price.

Customers are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines, but public machines are available for rent during classes. In addition to workshops and classes, the shop also hosts events such as weekly Manic Mondays, where anyone can needle away with no studio or machine-rental fee as long as they are working on a project for a charity.
