Cheese isn't the only thing that Mozzarella's Grill & Bar does right. The casual Italian eatery has a massive menu that's made all the more impressive by its chefs' attention to detail.

It's evident that the same care has been given to each of the restaurant's physical locations, some of which are outfitted with a patio for al fresco dining. For large family gatherings or a full-scale invasion of a neighbor's backyard, Mozzarella's catering services can feed an army with a mere 48-hour advance notice.

Though the menu at Raku Sakura is varied, each dish is executed with the same level of thoughtful excellence, right down to the plating.

Out of the kitchen, the cooks toss noodles from woks and into bowls of spicy red curry chicken and crunchy broccoli with tender beef.
