Behind Whatta' Dish's handsome, unpainted wood exterior lies a treasure trove of similarly unadorned pottery that awaits the caress of a paintbrush. Ensconced in warm light and bright, multihued walls, guests embellish a wide array of bisque pieces, such as ornaments, pet dishes, and plates. As the last coat begins to dry, Whatta' Dish's staff whisks finished pieces away, glazing and firing them to give each item a protective gloss that makes it safe for use with food and trips through the dishwasher. Guests are free to tote along their own snacks and beverages of choice.

Owner Ryan Cooper has successfully maintained his restaurant's classy ambiance and feel through renovations. High-arched windows provide backlight for diners as well as views of the historic Valley Junction location, and an Old World wood bar showcases carved bearded faces so intricate they can fool gullible barbers.

The chef outfits spinach-and-artichoke dip with fresh crabmeat and grills bourbon-glazed burgers. He even smokes gouda and prepares kielbasa for mac ‘n' cheese to put an adult twist on a classic part of childhood, like equipping a tree fort with an ATM. The contemporary cuisine also complements more than 50 beer varieties such as Vanilla Porter and Strongbow, more than 16 wines, and full liquor selection.
