Mattress Direct culls a variety of mattresses in textures ranging from firm to plush from brands such as Tempur-Pedic and Serta. Serta's iComfort, for example, evenly distributes support across the body with microsupport gel capsules nestled in its memory foam; a specialized material prevents overheating and the resulting unpleasant lava-chase nightmares. Mattress Direct's stock of bed frames, bed linens, and pillows allow patrons to assemble complete bedroom sets in one trip, and an express delivery service prevents the hassle of renting a moving truck or outfitting each leg of a new bed with a rollerblade.
The friendly pie purveyors at Vitolli's hand-toss New York–style pizzas in front of yearning customers who peer into the open kitchen. Customize a 14-inch or 18-inch pizza with your choice of more than 20 toppings ($10.99–$17.99), from regular toppings such as Canadian bacon and banana peppers to specialty selections ($1 extra per topping) such as artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. A 16-inch whole stuffed “really stuffed” pizza ($27) can be filled with five or more of your favorite pizza supplements, making it an ideal way to smuggle toppings past pepperoni-sniffing dogs. The pizzeria's large menu also offers a variety of unpizzas, with the abundant array of Italian favorites including a meatball sandwich topped with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella ($5.95) and lemon-and-garlic-shrimp pasta in a crispy bacon alfredo sauce ($11.75). Supplement the feasting by flooding your gullet with a domestic bottle of brew ($2.75) or a soft drink ($1.75) that won’t challenge you to a fight for calling it “soft.”
Chocolate Corner's friendly staff calls on family recipes and fresh butter and cream to concoct tasty confections in a mélange of styles. White-chocolate almond bark ($16/lb.) traps cranberries in a wave of creamy sweetness, and caramel-pecan paws ($19.95/lb.) douse nuts in gooey caramel before the mixture bathes in dark or milk chocolate. Fudge ($12/lb.) comes in numerous flavors— such as cookies ‘n’ cream and chocolate pecan with Alabama pecans—all of which melt in mouths the same way the armor of a knight melts in the belly of a dragon.
At Papa's Pizza, a family of pie-tossing perfectionists shares its legacy with a full menu of classic Italian recipes and New York–style pizza. Prep palates with an anti-pasta salad, crafted with a medley of ham, salami, pepperoni, green olives, greek olives, and provolone cheese ($6.99) before ordering one of Papa's Pizza's specialty New York–style cheese pizzas ($14.99). Pasta-lovers can feast on meat or spinach lasagna ($8.49), or try strombolis, which conceal a cache of sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, black olives, and mozzarella cheese that can be discovered by eating excavators ($7.99).
Noodles, sushi, sashimi, and curried hot pots rub international elbows on Aji Sai Asian's diplomatic menu of fusion fare. Hungry diners and Frankie Valli aficionados will adore the Chinese-style happy four season platter loaded with chicken, beef, shrimp, and scallops tossed in a soy-ginger sauce with a side of rice ($16). Choose a robust dish such as the popular Aji Sai seafood curry hot pot with succulent shrimp, scallops, and lobster simmering in a spicy thai curry sauce ($16), or keep dinner light and fresh by sampling dishes from the extensive sushi and sashimi menu. Raw fish purists delight in the flameless sashimi offerings, including stripe bass ($4), red snapper ($4), and yellowtail ($5), and voracious vegetarians find ample nori-bound nourishment in the abyss of the sweet-potato tempura roll, a spicy-sweet beta-carotene powerhouse ($4).

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Why eat Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream? We do Science not magic in our shop. Liquid Nitrogen allows us to make ice cream fresh, without all the preservative and without any of the visible ice you see in other ice cream. The lack of visible ice is the most important because this is what allows you to taste the actual ice cream. All these years you have not been tasting all of the flavor of ice cream because of ice. Our ice cream is three times more creamy and our flavors will make you feel like you have always only been eating vanilla ice cream.
