Dorina?s Kitchen pays homage to Dorina?s favorite room in the house?the kitchen. It?s where Dorina spent many days of her childhood, learning how to cook her mother?s and Nonna?s recipes. She even spent time as a child in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant. Dorina grew to love the culinary arts, and she now spends her days in her very own kitchen, cooking recipes handed down through her family, recipes she learned in the restaurant kitchen of her childhood, and recipes she discovered living in a peasant village in southern Italy.
In her kitchen, which is open for every meal of the day, Dorina and her staff whip up eggplant parmigiana, fettuccine alfredo, and spaghetti with hand-rolled meatballs. The morning hours have the kitchen serving up hot breakfast sandwiches with espresso and cappucino, and all bread is homemade onsite. Dorina also passes her skills down to others, teaching them how to cook classic Italian dishes?including chicken piccata and pizza?during classes at her eatery and in long lines at the supermarket
Customers take control at IYO Yogurt, where IYO stands for "It's Your Own," according to a feature in the Alternative Press, meaning that it's up to the customer to choose their yogurt and top it with as many candies, nuts, and fruits as they want. To this end, visitors select any combination of 24 yogurt flavors to fill their cups, plus more than 100 toppings options, which all satisfy sweet teeth more than filling a cup with 100 teaspoons of sugar.
Despite its Bavarian lodge?style fa?ade, Prospect Tavern doesn't tie itself down to any one cultural cuisine. The kitchen team draws from all around the world to design its eclectic upscale pub menu. Signature dishes such as a slow-roasted prime rib and lobster macaroni and cheese share the spotlight with herbed steaks, fresh salads, and vegetarian sandwiches. Many of these come with their own suggested drink pairings, which can be chosen from more than 10 craft beers and a robust list international wines. Food and drink aren't the modern pub's only attractions: throughout the year, special events range from live acoustic music and social karaoke to model UN meetings.
