The delicate subtlety of Fuji Yama Sushi & Thai Cuisine's exotic selection of sushi rolls, nigiri, and sashimi serve as a cool yin to the yang of a hearty selection of flavorful Thai fare. Immerse tongues in a full-fledged savory saturnalia of entrees, such as the curry duck, whose crispy exterior and curry kimono flank veggies and jasmine rice ($18.95), or the whole red snapper topped in chili sauce, peppers, and onions ($24.95). The eatery's sushi menu houses more than 50 specialty rolls created by skilled uncooks, including the Sexy Man roll, a savory medley of tuna and avocado topped with tempura eel, roe, and sexy-man sauce ($12.95), and the massive King Kong roll, which contains more sea creatures than Poseidon's guest house ($16.95). All sushi comes with a choice of a seaweed-, rice-, or soy-paper exoskeleton, and the adventurous nigri selection showcases such options as quail egg ($1.25/two pieces) and conch ($4.75/two pieces).

The hand-crafted meals at La Farfalla Café are inspired by the fresh flavors of the Mediterranean. Show spoons what they’ve been missing with pizza soup, a beefy broth of sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, and peppers simmered in a tomato-based sauce with optional pasta and mozzarella ($2.95/small, $5.25/large). Garden-fresh flavor that doesn't involve sleeping face-down in a neighborhood vegetable patch comes in the form of organic quinoa tabbouleh salad, sprouting full vegan fervor with a mixture of fresh italian parsley, carrots, cucumbers, green onions, tomatoes, lemon, and olive oil ($8.95). Flatten hunger with a piadina, house bread dough rolled flat and warmed in a dry skillet, topped with options that include chicken, pesto, provolone, and tomato with a choice of green salad or potato salad ($8.95). Satisfy sweet and salad-y urges with the chocolate-zucchini cake, slathered with rich chocolate buttercream ($2.95) and manageable by dessert fork or pitchfork. La Farfalla Café uses organic ingredients in all of its dishes whenever possible, will make almost anything to special order, and offers eaters the option to make their meals gluten-free for $1 extra.

Boasting Michelin stars and three decades of culinary experience, executive chef Patrick Ponsaty pilots a team that creates upscale seafood and contemporary gourmet fare. Ponsaty?s colleagues include young chefs Gianina Dicicco and Mike Reidy, who graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and the New England Culinary Institute. Dishes with modern, imaginative flavors include squid-ink risotto, veal cheeks with orange-blossom mousse, and hibiscus-pomegranate consomm?. Each creation is a work of visual art, too, with colorful spices, marbleized sauces, and carefully stacked ingredients arranged to resemble Rodin?s The Thinker.
