Vito?s Italian Restaurant and Bar is part eatery, part arcade. Pool and air-hockey tables populate the floor, and video games like Golden Tee provide kids and adults alike with hours of fun?or just the few minutes it takes to get a table. The restaurant even has a crane machine for players to try to nab a stuffed animal or a stuffed pepperoni. A jukebox plays popular tunes while diners refuel with hand-tossed thin-crust pizzas and deep-dish pies. Chefs can customize crusts with garlic butter or Cajun seasoning, depending on patrons' whims; they top specialty pizzas with grilled chicken, bacon, and ranch dressing, to name just one. The menu also offers burgers, sandwiches, pasta, and the popular Goofy Bread?plain dough baked with garlic butter, mozzarella, and parmesan.
After 20 years in the restaurant business, the owners of the family-owned Tijuana's Mexican Kitchen embrace tortillas as a highly versatile food. The flour wraps form the foundation of diverse dishes, including chimichangas, tamales, fajitas, enchiladas, and a fresh-prepared Mexican sandwich built on three flour tortillas slathered with gravy-drenched layers of rice, beans, and beef. After washing their entrees down with their choice of margaritas, desserts such as churros bring meals to a decadent conclusion.
Partygoers can duck into Fun Booth's spacious photo booths to capture moments during weddings, family reunions, and parties, then quickly share them with real-time Facebook uploads. After the booth's digital camera snaps four pictures of groups twirling canes or combing fake mustaches picked from the prop box, its sub-dye printers fire out photo strips within 10 seconds. The booth is delivered for free and accompanied by an attendant to answer questions. Add-ons include scrapbooks made of all the event's images, as well as a video-booth option where guests record greetings for their hosts or film their Real World: Gary, Indiana auditions.

Dredge crispy squid through decadent kewpie mayo and exotic sweet-chili-sauce terrain before disassembling the makeshift dozers with one swift bite ($9), or nosh on a plate of tandoori wings, spiced with a zesty butter-chicken sauce ($9). Lifestyle cocktails invite guests to analyze their alter egos, pairing fictional personalities with fun drinks, while OPUS's hand-crafted specialties sprinkle drinkable sundaes with cherries, lasers, and precious metals. The Summer Sun places Maker's Mark, calvados, vermouth, and bronze powder into a libation that is both potent and pretty ($16.50), and the Pacific Spa compiles Hendrick's gin, vermouth, rose water, smoked sea salt, silver flakes, and cucumber ($16.50). A quality selection of wines, whiskey, and single malts is also available.

While some places focus on specialty entrees, the chefs at Detroit’s Finest Soul Food focus on satisfying customers with a whole meal. That’s why they join each entree with a slice of corn bread and a choice of two sides—such as fresh-picked collard greens, mac 'n' cheese made with five cheeses, or spaghetti. They make their meals fresh daily and center them around a chosen cut of meat, such as a slice of hearty meatloaf or chicken in a choice of white meat, dark meat, or barbecue. They often finish meals on a sweet note with crumbly peach cobbler or banana pudding. They also use their grill skills to create half- and full-sized pans of their dishes for weddings, barbecues, and LAN parties.
