An emporium of edible excess, Avenue Restaurant dishes up a palate-pleasing menu of seafood, meaty sandwiches, fried chicken, and other homemade goodies. Launch an edible expedition with a mound of fried pickles ($4.50) or a cup of savory shrimp-and-corn bisque ($3.50). Entree-seekers can dive tongue-first into the country-fried steak ($8.95) to wade with mashed potatoes and vegetables in a pool of gravy. Chomp into a Cajun au gratin stuffed potato ($8.95), an overfed tuber bloated with fried shrimp, mozzarella cheese, and butter with a crab-meat au gratin cloak. Scrumptious bread pudding ($2.75) and slices of creamy cheesecake ($2.75) activate sweet teeth and long-dormant sugar sensors. Avenue Restaurant serves up daily specials in a quaint eatery shaded by luscious trees and hovering spacecrafts.

Despite the name, Brazil Taco Truck doesn't operate out of a truck. And it doesn't just serve Brazilian specialities. Rather, it dishes out staples from all across Latin America from within a full-sized, completely stationary restaurant and bar. Cooks layer fluffy gorditas with cuts of salmon, wrap classic Honduran tamales in plantain leaves, and fill Mexican-style tacos with the likes of fish, shrimp, or pineapple pork. They aren't afraid to mix-and-match these culinary traditions, either. For instance, they blend Mexican and Cuban influences to create a burrito filled with the ham, pickles, and carnitas of a traditional Cuban sandwich. To help wash all this multi-cultural food down, bartenders pour glasses of wine and beer, as well as rustle up Latin cocktails such as caipirinhas and pisco punch.
