Borriello Brothers Pizza didn't just copy New York-style pizza?they imported it. Owned by New York natives, the pizza joint pays tribute to the city's staple, craftting their pizzas with attention to detail. Their sauce comes from California tomatoes, they only use 100% real whole milk mozzarella cheese, and they layer their pizzas with sausage made from prime cuts of pork. The result is a pie that grew out of original New York recipes, just as the city's skyscrapers sprout from cracks in the sidewalks. In addition to traditional NY-style pizzas, they serve Sicilian crust pizzas, and feature signature pies with toppings such as Genoa salami, sliced steak, and baked ziti. The menu also incorporates calzones, pastas, and other Italian specialties.

Paintings and other works by local artists festoon Cucuru Gallery Cafe, whose walls are painted with the rustic reds and deep greens of the Spanish countryside. Glasses of Spanish wines and specialty cocktails clink within the single-story house-turned-caf?, such as the Barista blended with espresso and br?l?e liqueurs. Cucuru's drinks pair with tapas and other Hispanic-inspired dishes, such as cuban sandwiches with marinated, slow-roasted pork, crispy spiced patatas bravas with garlic-aioli dipping sauce, and pollo oloroso, which tops a seared chicken breast, manchego cheese, and mashed potatoes with an oloroso-mushroom demi-glace. The caf? hosts live entertainment throughout the week, such as jazz, funk, and other genres, and opens on Tuesdays for sultry tango classes.

At Mountain Shadows Restaurant, guests can tuck in to gourmet, hormone-free burgers or savory rib-eye steaks, but they also can enjoy a smorgasbord of breakfast food available at all times of the day. Fluffy denver omelets loaded with ham and peppers, stacks of syrup-drizzled French toast and pancakes, and breakfast burritos loaded with homemade green chili are some of the favorites, and entrees can be halved for smaller appetites or made with gluten-free bread for those with dietary restrictions. And flavored coffees dosed with liqueurs or pitchers of mimosas help excite taste buds.

La Baguette serves up a full menu of classic café fare but specializes in the total sensory-immersion experience of smelling, seeing, tasting, touching, and singing love songs to freshly baked breads and pastries. Straight-from-the-oven artisan bites include whole-wheat walnut loaves ($3.55), hearty six-grain rolls ($1.25), rye bread ($2.90 for a small loaf), pecan-raisin rolls ($0.95), fruit-filled croissants ($2.50), and ficelles ($1.60 each), all of which are expertly trained in the art of soaking up savory slurps of French-onion soup from the café ($5.75). After a warm summer evening spent strolling the streets, indulge in a serving of delightfully garlicky escargot served with soft French bread on the side ($7.75) or a plate of butternut-squash ravioli with sage, tomato, basil sauce, and a fresh-baked roll ($7.95). A variety of gourmet meats and cheeses can be caught cozily cradled in the flakey confines of homemade croissants and baguettes in the form of delicious sandwiches, all served with a side of seasonal fruit ($5.75–$6.85). Wash down your yummies with a classic café latte ($3.15), espresso ($1.75), or glass of fine French wine (from $3.95/glass).
