Maui Teriyaki infuses ordinary bowls with extraordinary dollops of tasty proteins and veggies available in made-to-order configurations. A Power Bowl features chicken soaked in teriyaki sauce, napping on a bed of cauliflower, broccoli, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts ($6.99; additional $0.50 for steak, pork, or tofu). Patrons can build custom bowls on a base of white rice and three vegetables and outfit them with fried, teriyaki, and crispy chicken in the triple-chicken combo ($8.99) or fill up a bowl with steak ($7.99 for medium) and get energized for a long day of filling a neighbor’s pool with Jello packets. A smattering of burgers and tasty sides such as brown rice ($0.50–$0.75) is also available. The restaurant’s sleek, Hawaiian-themed digs provides diners with a laid-back spot to enjoy a filling meal or hide from a landlord when rent is due.

The chefs at Sushi-2-Go's new location on the University of Florida campus wrap both classic and signature eight-piece sushi rolls to remedy hollow tummies. Guests can unseal an appetizer of pork or vegetable dumplings ($3) after requesting that they be fried, steamed, or bedazzled with rock-candy rhinestones. Chopsticks airlift the tampa roll's ($5) fried tilapia and cucumber to tongue runways, and the Flying Dragon roll ($7) drapes bites of eel over crisp cocoons of imitation crab, avocado, cucumber, and fish roe. Feel free to take a sabbatical from being a carnivore by opting for the sweet-potato roll ($5), which nestles mushrooms and avocados against fried sweet potato and a sassy supplement of spicy sauce. Fried shrimp and smoked salmon wear caps of seaweed sprinkles in the Hulk roll ($7), which transforms into a green seaweed fist and upends bottles of soy sauce if angered.

Fresco Neighborhood Italian satisfies noodle connoisseurs with fresh ingredients combined to produce mouthwatering fare from the most gastronomically gifted of the boot-shaped nations. The lunch menu addresses midday cravings with options such as the Meateater Pizza, its bountiful mozzarella stratum capped with classic pepperoni, sausage, and meatballs, with some canadian bacon and genoa salami ($10.95) thrown in as a nod to Henry Kissinger’s successful meat diplomacy. The dinner menu sees fresh mozzarella, basil, and plum tomatoes splitting the rent on plate space while luxuriating in rich olive oil and delicate herbs in the traditional Caprese style ($9.95), and diners relax in the elegant, warmly lit dining room while on their plates a blanket of pesto cream sauce envelops a tender chicken breast nestled in tangled sheets of fettuccine, mushrooms, and aromatic sundried tomatoes ($12.95), which retain flavor far better than their towel-dried counterparts. Alternatively, fresh maritime bounty known as cioppino loads spicy tomato broth with clams, shrimp, fresh fish, mussels, and calamari for the culinary equivalent of a glass-bottom boat tour ($15.95).

Miya Sushi's menu avoids difficult dining decisions by assembling plates of fresh and authentic Japanese and Korean specialties. Fish fans can populate internal aquariums with takes on classic sushi, such as spicy tuna avocado ($5.75), or reel in a specialty roll such as the pineapple-garnished tuna colada ($6.50) before spearing a fiery lava roll, which oozes with spicy krab delite and fried shrimp ($11.95). A brigade of flaming rolls arrives at tables engulfed in flames, tempering fierce hunger cravings while offering a backup light source during power outages and impromptu tableside shadow puppet-offs. Miya Sushi's diverse dish selection makes it an ideal crowd pleaser, serving vegetarian options, six different salads as well both bento box and lunch specials.

Peer up at the menu, and jump-start your morning with a breakfast pita, such as the Morning Glory ($4.99), comprised of avocado, eggs, tomatoes, grilled green peppers, onions, your choice of cheese and zesty sauces, and served with hash browns. Don't feel ashamed if your morning happens to be what other people call the afternoon, since breakfast pitas are served all day. If it's lunch or dinner that you prefer, you can stay traditional with a gyro ($5.99), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood club with turkey, ham, and roast beef ($6.39), or the Chicken Crave with chicken, ham and melted American Swiss cheese ($6.39). Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($5.99) or hummus ($5.49) pitas. If your nonconformist stomach refuses to be satiated by any of the menu items, build your own pita and choose from a potpourri of stuffings, including pickles, mushrooms, jalapeños, pineapple, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, and wishes.

Recently reopened, the Fyre Bar & Grill makes salivary glands smolder with a menu of tasty grilled burgers, Tex-Mex, and pasta, plus a full bar and live-music theme nights. Gobble up a plate of thick, tangy shrimp ($6.50) with spiced fries ($2.99), or try a Fyre burger ($7.50/$8.99), a massive 1/3-pound meat patty smothered with melted cheese and dijon mustard. Beat-seeking crowds bounce and spin as they soak in live acoustic, reggae, and Latin music on weekly theme nights, giving sweet-voiced washing machines a break from their regular duties. Fyre’s fiery fare and tantalizing tunes rejuvenate patrons’ food and sound canals until 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
