As the proud, busy parents of three young boys, Kang and Mary Nhin know that eating dinner as a family can be a challenge. So they created Nhinja Sushi and Wok, a casual, kid-friendly setting where the service is fast and the menu includes healthy options. As children don a Nhinja mask cutout and sketch the daily Dow Jones chart on a coloring sheet, families dig into spicy tuna rolls or stir-fried Hunan Garden shrimp. The food blog Dishin & Dishes lauded the restaurant for offering the option to order sushi and entrees made with brown rice.
The family-centric vibe even extends to the restaurant's lime walls, which are decorated with artwork of the owners' children. Careful not to neglect fully grown eyeballs, they have also filled the space with futuristic white chairs, tables, and booths accentuated by the pops of bright pink, turquoise, purple, and lime green.

Bright, breezy, and old fashioned, Inspirations Tea Room blends southern charm and Continental classiness within its multi-room oasis. Guests can relax pinkies up inside one of the many ornate, chandelier-clad rooms, including the main Tea Room, Queen's Salon, Garden Party, and the Sunroom. Accompanied by steaming mugs of jasmine, formosa, or earl grey, finger foods in the form of a warm, fresh Queen's quiche, a roast-beef croissant with provolone, or a tangy lemon-blackberry salad made with Teaoli olive oil collude to conquer appetites. The experienced hosts wait on groups of any size, serving tea-party trays big enough for entire parties or small enough for intimate nibbles between guests and their favorite friends or British monarchs.
After a series of kitchen experiments, Jake Wigley finally did it: he created the perfect chili to top Nathan’s brand all-beef hot dogs. Today, Jake rises bright and early each and every day to create and re-create his hard-earned recipe from scratch for his menu of regionally inspired coneys. He piles the Carolina with chili and coleslaw, slathers the Western with the perfect balance of barbecue sauce and cheese, and constructs the classic, famous coney with chili, mustard, and enough onions to make a statue cry. Aside from Nathan’s dogs, Jake also grills brats and ladles chili over spaghetti or directly into bowls for spoon-assisted consumption.
