Marvin's Garden blast-freezes and packages fine meat and poultry to seal in flavor and freshness for up to six months from the date of purchase. Restaurant-quality dishes are delivered straight to each customer’s novelty doormat, enabling them to forge feasts of hearty ham, Angus filets, and sushi-grade seafood. Marvin's chefs also simplify party planning by crafting 50-portion packs of gourmet hors d'oeuvres, such as bacon-wrapped scallops and petite quiches.
Marvin's Garden ensures the freshness of its meat through blast freezing, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze flesh in seconds and lock in juices. Meats are sealed in Cryovac packaging to protect them from bacterial cultures and pop-culture trivia.
Sam Ahmad and Rosco Sayyar first flung open the ornate wooden doors of Sam and Rosco's in 1987, beginning a decades-long tradition of fine dining and serving continental and Italian fare. Inside, white-clothed tables snake along the exposed brick walls of multiple dining rooms, and cushy armchairs host sippers by the bar. Illuminated by a roaring fireplace and glimmering chandeliers, servers bring forth plates of Italian pasta, seafood, and steaks, along with glasses brimming with fine wines. Sam and Rosco's also hosts and caters parties at their events facility, The Centre at Arbor Connection, located just down the road.
At Thumbs Up Diner, plush red stools underline curved, formica countertops, and chefs flip omelets in cast-iron skillets. Flourishes such as these imbue Thumbs Up Diner with the aura of a classic ?50s diner. Though it?s an apt comparison in regards to ambiance, chefs strive to surpass the no-frills cuisine of their ?50s forbearers. The kitchen team smokes italian sausage, turkey, and chicken in house, and squeezes orange juice fresh to order. To wit: pancakes, waffles, and name tags that just won't stay put can be drizzled with pure New England maple syrup, and from-scratch jams can be spread across multigrain biscuits. And though meat, egg, and cheese dishes may sizzle in cast-iron skillets, the cooks also dole out vegan entrees.
