CiCi’s Pizza combines the variety of a buffet with the thrill of bottomless pizza. Each pie is crafted with dough made from scratch daily and then slathered with homemade marinara and showered with toppings ranging from traditional pepperoni and Italian-style sausage to creative combinations including buffalo chicken and mac 'n' cheese. The buffet is stocked with a plethora of fresh pastas, as well as signature salads with the option to put tossing talents to the test at the salad bar. After they've feasted on savory options, diners can revisit the buffet for dessert including freshly baked brownies, slices of apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing—or they can eat dessert first, thereby tearing an irreparable hole in the space-time continuum.
The wines come in reds, whites, glasses, and bottles. The prosciutto, which complements the wine, comes from outside the United States. And an outdoor patio means no one has to drink their wine or eat their prosciutto inside, unless they?d like to look at vino-themed artwork or keep their feet firmly planted in plush carpet. The staff cooks chicken or veal marsala, as well as a number of inventive pizzas, Italian flatbreads, and pasta smothered in ricotta, mozzarella, and parmigiana cheese or drenched in housemade marinara sauce. Think fresh, made-to-order, home cooking in a comfortable and relaxing locally-owned environment. Bella Tuscany Ristorante Italiano also can accommodate customers? every need by offering delivery, catering, and carryout.
At "The Taste of West Orange" Best Fest in 2013, That One Spot won "Best Food." Not "Best Burger," "Best Fries," or "Best Use of Feta On a Monday Night." Simply "Best Food." As one can see, the gourmet burger joint has a penchant for leaving fans at a loss for words. Even the typically verbose comfort food blog Burger Beast summed up their review with a single syllable: "Wow."
The mass praise is the result of That One Spot's imaginative burger recipes. The chalk board menu is erasable for a reason: the chefs refuse to hold their imaginations back. Beef patties, which are forged from a blend of chuck, brisket, and short rib, are often paired with surprise toppings such as roast beef, coconut curry, banana cream sauce, and even Spam. Plenty of traditional burgers are always on hand though, with add-ons that include everything from pecan smoked bacon to corn-encrusted mac and cheese.
The chefs at Clarke Grub & Pub import two things from Louisiana: authentic Cajun flavors and New Orleans's inimitable energy. While diners feast on crawfish boils and shrimp-and-andouille cheddar grits, locals charge up on the stage to sing karaoke or answer trivia questions. On certain evenings, the bar even hosts motorcycle nights, which lure in hordes of bikers and a smattering of confused farmers looking to buy a hog. Bartenders sling drinks from a full bar to ensure that these events maintain a social, jovial vibe.
