Working within a lofty stone structure, Geisha Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar’s chefs sear Asian entrees on hibachi grills and tuck French-inspired tidbits into specialty sushi. Across the chic, plum-hued dining room, they’ll sizzle succulent hibachi meats, fresh vegetables, and incriminating tax documents atop slick grill tables. Otherwise, they can pull from a dinner menu filled with fusion entrees such as shrimp and lobster risotto, and Jekyll-and-Hyde pad thai.
The 'D' in Dande stands for David; the 'E' stands for Edie, and together, the people behind those names teamed up to establish a café that strives to be as dandy as its eponym implies. Inside the cozy, brightly lit eatery, David, Edie, and their staff oversee a menu composed with wellness in mind. That menu, much like Bigfoot's mailing address, changes daily, offering everything from snacks to full meals, and many items boast vegan, gluten-free, and low-glycemic origins. Connecting dance and art studios also infuse creative energies into the café, including views of dance students as they spin through their sessions.
In a spacious dining room with large windows and trees growing in giant vases, visitors to Bangkok Gardens dine on Thai cuisine. Chefs prepare dishes such as Phat Thai, drunken noodles, and fried rice fresh each day, stir-frying vegetables and grains with a choice of beef, tofu, shrimp, and other proteins. They also prepare specialties like Moo Taud, slicing tenderized pork into thin layers to be deep-fried and served with spiced sweet and sour sauce. At a full bar, servers mix cocktails and pour wine to compliment meals.
Cafe Berlin fills its kitchen with vegetables, coffee, dairy, free-range eggs, and other natural and organic foods from local farms, including Patchwork Family Farms, Green Hills Harvest Dairy, and Lakota Coffee Company. Breakfast, which is served all day, includes dishes such as Turkish-style eggs, french toast, and pancake burritos—a large pancake that enfolds two scrambled eggs and Patchwork bacon, served with maple syrup. Black-bean quesadillas, burgers with local, organic beef, and housemade soups crown the lunch menu and pair with an array of alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks.
Plastic dinosaurs and Godzilla figures dot the sunny dining room, where they hang from the rafters, sit on the counter, and gnaw on table legs. Patrons can gaze at the eclectic decor while listening to live music or tales from the Porch Light storytelling series.
The Copper Kettle?s menu is a throwback to simpler times. Country-fried steak, fried chicken, and beef pot roast are just three of the kitchen?s dinner specialties. Each comes with macaroni and cheese or potatoes, plus a trip to the salad bar. If they still have room, diners can finish the meal with one of six homemade pies, in daily rotating flavors such as apple, lemon, and sugar-free banana cr?me. Breakfast?from biscuits and gravy to fluffy flapjacks?is served morning or night. The Copper Kettle also has a kid?s menu, featuring chicken strips and grilled cheese to keep tykes from stealing bites off their parent?s plates or chewing off their own arm.
After 30 years of curating and perfecting recipes, founders Linda and Julie unleashed their culinary powers to create a Roly Poly menu of more than 50 rolls and sandwiches, plus a tempting selection of desserts. Slinging sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the sandwich artisans envelop a variety of inventive ingredients inside warm, floury tortillas, from scrambled eggs to pesto chicken to mustard-splashed tuna. Customized sandwiches may also be rolled to suit various diets, preferences, or carbo-loading competitive mimes.
