Bonello's New York Pizza isn?t located on the east coast, but that doesn?t mean the chefs can't whip up a mean New York-style pie. The secret to Bonello's pizzas is not just in the sauce?much less sweet than variations served on the west coast or in Candyland?, but also in the kitchen's secret herb blend, which is sprinkled onto each hand-tossed and stretched crust before it is slid inside an authentic stone oven. When it emerges minutes later, the pizza is thin, crispy, and light, qualities that earned the eatery a place on CBS Locals list of the top 10 pizzerias in the area. And even though pizzas are the main focus at Bonello's, the chefs also craft creamy pasta dishes and 18 hot and cold submarine sandwiches.
For Cheezy Pizza, just one request for a vegan pizza became the catalyst for change. Unlike other pizzerias, which might include one vegan option?a cheese-less veggie pizza or a bowl of wheat grains?Cheezy Pizza's vegan menu is just about as hefty as the meat-eaters menu. Diners can choose from six specialty vegan pizzas, piled high with soy meat toppings including pepperoni and chorizo, Daiya cheese, and even a vegan alfredo sauce. Meanwhile, the carnivore-friendly menu lists all the usual trappings, such as pizzas, pastas, and calzones.
Wake snoozing taste buds with a hearty starter such as mozzarella suprema breadsticks adorned with natural cheese and herbs ($3.95 side; $5.95 large) before moving onto a signature fire-roasted pie. An authentic terra-cotta oven blasts RedBrick's prided circles with more than 1,000 degrees of heat, alchemically transforming their base dough into crispy gold in less than three minutes. Enjoy stationary drive-in dining with a bacon-cheeseburger pizza topped with ground beef and three kinds of cheese ($17.95 for a 14"), or graze on the veggie gourmet works, which comes loaded with a Peter Piper's worth of fresh vegetables including bell peppers, artichokes, and mushrooms, swaddled in your choice of a vegetarian red or white sauce ($17.95 for a 14"). Create-your-own pies are also available, providing palate-pleasing fill-in-the-blanks for the munching mad-libbest. Yowling sweet teeth can be silenced with a dessert of gourmet gelato or a surprise dinner visit from the dentist's wife, the librarian.

Red paper lanterns hang from Chapter Two California Kitchen's interior, illuminating a yellow dining room where American and Thai flavors collide. The fusion eatery's Heart Attack sandwich, for example, is pure Americana: country-fried steak with white sauce and grilled onions, all between two golden slabs of garlic bread. However, the menu also brims with Thai staples, from pad thai and pad see ew to jok?rice pudding with a savory twist.
