Reyhan Persian Grill's chefs keep things natural in the kitchen, forswearing preservatives and food coloring of any kind. Taking this freshness creed even further, all meats used for the eatery's Persian dishes and flame-kissed kebabs are purchased daily, then cut or ground onsite. In the casual dining room, tiered fan blades mingle the aromas of marinated salmon and filet mignon kebabs with the steam of Reyhan's signature lamb-shank stew, simmered with either lima beans and dill rice or fresh green beans and tomato-sauce rice. Outside, a covered patio guards cool hummus and cucumber dips with the swaying leaves of miniature palms. Parasols protect patrons' eyes from the sun, ensuring that they can see clearly should an engagement ring be hidden in the saffron basmati rice.

The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into three-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea, coffee, and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy. Prop guns and gunshot sound effects may be used during the performance.

Diners at Meet are encouraged to share dishes by the on-staff mom trying to raise upstanding progeny. Politely split an appetizer such as cheese fondue (serves two, $14) or Meet's beets, served with goat cheese and honey-champagne vinaigrette ($10). The moules frites (mussels) come five ways, including au Roquefort (garlic, shallots, Roquefort, chives, and cream) and à la moutarde ancienne (tomato confit, mustard, tarragon, and cream) ($10 for the appetizer, $16 for entree). Pair a side of potato gratin or pommes puree ($5 each) with a classic of French cuisine like cabernet-braised short ribs ($22.95). The planche à fromages (assorted imported cheeses, $11) or pot of chocolate fondue (serves two, $12) brings the meal full circle like a Frisbee thrown into the wind. For a traditional finishing touch, try the tarte tatin (puff pastry, red apples, and caramel, $7).

El Rincon Criollo's expansive menu presents Cuban flavors in dishes starring seafood, pork, and chicken.

El Rincon Criollo penchant for the classics is apparent with the Cuban-style roast pork, which unites sweet grilled onions with shredded, roasted pork and garlicky goodness ($10.95).
