Select Local Merchants

The staff at Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt rejects the oft-touted claim that Americans don?t care about nutrition. The problem, they say, has more to do with selection than anything else; most low-calorie sweets don?t hold a candle to a fudge brownie or a warm slice of apple pie. They kept this in mind when crafting their frozen-yogurt recipes, working tireless to develop a healthy?and equally delicious?alternative to the dessert status quo by turning to decadent confections and just-picked fruits for inspiration.

? Their experiments thus far have yielded more than 60 frozen yogurt flavors, which take turns pumping through the self-serve machines that line their colorful shop?s wall. Before taking a seat in a bright orange chair, guests fill their dishes with cool, low-fat swirls of chocolate cheesecake, strawberry banana, and a classic tart that bites as pleasantly as a teething kitten. Juicy pears, crunchy granola, and gooey chocolate sauce headline a smorgasbord of at least 30 toppings ready to scooped or poured into cups before their final weigh-in.

Knotty wooden walls and checkered floors set an inviting scene inside of Buffalo Joe's Burger & Wing Joint, a New Richmond eatery that opened in the autumn of 2012. In the restaurant’s kitchen, cooks shape ground beef into burger patties or miniature busts of George Washington before sizzling them on the grill and piling on toppings such as fried eggs or sriracha-laced sesame-ginger slaw. They also toss chicken wings with an array of sauces, including garlic inferno, caramel barbecue, and hot buffalo, to name a few.

In the morning, diners can stop by for omelets, biscuits 'n' gravy, and other breakfast classics. Owners Joel, Bev, and Annette are avid football fans, so they regularly broadcast games for visitors to watch while dining.

Looking more like a house than a restaurant, Our Place at Hi-Port uses rambling, almost barn-style architecture to hint at the array of classic, homestyle comfort food it houses. In fact, trick-or-treaters stop by every Halloween for homemade caramels and candy apples. Put together, these decorative and structural elements set a fitting scene for meals of casual, American cuisine, which includes breakfast platters, fried pickles, pizza pies, and even seafood entrees.

Cake Towne's pastry barons heap frosting and chocolate onto fresh, never-frozen treats. The shop's truffle-esque cake balls, chocolate-dipped mixtures of cake and frosting, dress themselves in flavors both traditional and surprising, from salted caramel and chocolate raspberry to spicy carrot. Once coated, the treats go for a dip in rivers of dark, white, or milk chocolate. Stick candles into each of these dozen pastry spheres (a $10.50 value) to create a birthday cake befitting a juggler turning a multiple of 12. A dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (a $24 value) delight taste buds and add a racy edge to oft-wholesome fruit. Free WiFi wafts throughout the shop, allowing patrons to use their sticky fingers to look up how to clean frosting off a keyboard.

Knotty Pine on the Bayou may not rest in the heart of Louisiana, but nonetheless, owner and head chef John Caulfield embraces the Deep South's flavors. Although the restaurant serves grilled steaks and other cuisine from outside the bayou, Cajun influences are evident in most of Caulfield's dishes.

Classic Cajun Cooking

  • Bold seasoning adds some kick to the Cajun gumbo's chicken, andouille sausage, and crisp vegetables.
  • Chefs fry frog legs or saut? them with lemon, butter, and garlic.
  • The Cajun shrimp boil's crustaceans simmer in a spicy stock with onion, lemon, and spices before diners peel and devour each one.
  • Smoked sausage makes red beans and rice a particularly hearty entree.
  • Creole sauce accompanies crispy, deep-fried alligator.

Spaces to Sit

Knotty Pine on the Bayou features multiple dining areas. Although each one has its own theme, all of them share a casual, cozy aesthetic characterized by rustic woodwork and gauzy curtains. For an equally inviting atmosphere, guests can head to the restaurant's deck, which Gayot lauded as the "perfect place to linger over a Dixie beer and watch the sun set over the green Kentucky hills and the lazy Licking River."

Anita's Mexican Bar & Grill creates memorable dining experiences. It's a casual, comfortable place to go out with kids for dinner, to share a pitcher of margaritas, or to grab a beer and watch a game. The menu is packed with quesadillas, tacos, nachos, and other Mexican specialties. As for the family-friendly part, the eatery offers a kids menu with mini nachos, quesadilla or burrito plates, as well as hamburgers and chicken tenders. In the cantina, televisions are always playing sporting events and the bar is stocked with domestic and Mexican beers such as Dos Equis and Carta Blanca. An expansive, shaded patio lures diners away from the television and outside, where the margaritas taste just as delicious.
