True to its name, The Teahouse at Asian Arts offsets its exotic Asian concoctions with a Silk Road-inspired ambience of traditional Asian artwork and décor—right down to the mahjongg you can play at your table while waiting for your food. Your journey to the East begins with two items from the appetizer menu, such as crabmeat dumplings or yodofu, a tofu and vegetables mix that comes with dipping sauce and a clean bill of karma. From there you'll be free to pick your entrees from a massive menu of sandwiches and wraps, specials such as Hannah's wasabi mussels in miso broth, and soups and dumplings, which come in beef, crab, Mothra, and vegetarian variations. End your excursion with two sweet desserts, such as a warm pear crumble or ice-creamy Japanese daifuku mochi. In between bites, The Teahouse at Asian Arts will delicately hose down dirty palates with an Around the World flight of five infused sake shots; seasoned sake-sippers, meanwhile, can order an eight-ounce carafe of their preferred varietal. For added fun, a seasoned chiromancer will give you and your date a mini palm reading that determines your romantic chances, the number of kids you'll have, and exactly how many Shriner cars will be involved in your death tomorrow.
Rather than show off his culinary skills with a massive menu, Chef Karl Deneubourg prefers concentrating on more succinct, European-inspired offerings. But don't confuse the slim length of Antoine’s Restaurant's menu for a slim amount of flavor. For instance, Chef Karl whips up four variations of P.E.I. mussels, which he gets flown in daily, including one where he chardonnay-steams them and another where he coats them in garlic and cream.
That only skims the surface of his seafood options, which range from 1.25-pound Maine lobster served atop asparagus risotto to handmade tagliatelle tossed with squid and clams. Karl is equally talented with land-sourced ingredients, including raw certified Angus beef he seasons with capers and yolks magically extracted from impenetrable eggs. Wine and beer from around the globe complement each upscale feast, which unfold amidst wood-paneled walls and sparkling chandelier balls.
At Evie’s Golf Center’s mini-golf course, putter-wielding patrons embark on an 18-hole, par 40 odyssey through treacherously sloped, emerald-turf corridors kissed by the gentle mist of hole-side waterfalls. Outduel old rivals with a smooth and dependable putting stroke, or use the round as practice to fine-tune new techniques such as using your own double-gripped putter or intimidating finicky orbs until they take cover in each hole.
Nina Lakatos and Lynn Morris, two actual girls, wanted to live healthier lifestyles. They tried combining juices and raw, plant-based vegan foods and discovered that they "made them feel fantastic." Their friends took notice of the duo's improved health and energy and became curious about how to live such a lifestyle. Being a professional chef and professional photographer, the two knew how to make good food and how to make their good food look good, too. So, they started Two Girls Food, making fresh juices and vegan entrees each morning from scratch and delivering them to customers around town. They also offer pickup service in the morning at two locations.
In October, 2011, Audrey shared with Focus Magazine a snapshot of her childhood in Jamaica—her grandmother moving swiftly through her outdoor kitchen, preparing Caribbean specialties on a cast-iron stove. Comforting memories like this are what inspired the homestyle chef to open her own eatery after 21 years split between careers in nursing and marketing. Today, celebrating her culinary roots, Audrey bakes rum cakes year-round and cooks authentic, savory entrees using recipes that date back to her family's days of using brick ovens, wood-burning stoves, and the power of a really good glare.
Diners can sit at a small handful of tables, though most choose to take dishes to go. Meals include oxtail in brown sauce, curry chicken, and flaky Jamaican patties filled with spicy beef or chicken.
