Chefs at Bito's Pizzeria & Grill hand-toss the dough for their signature pizzas, which don toppings such as sun-dried tomatoes, prosciutto, and bacon before baking in hot ovens. Grills sizzle burgers with grilled onions, applewood bacon, or mozzarella cheese, and chefs at the counter ladle au jus over roast-beef subs. During weekend performances, musicians take the stage to play tunes and test the resonant frequency of ham-and-swiss stromboli.
The weapons experts of Aim Center Mass use their knowledge to serve the public, law enforcement, military, and first responders. The partner business of Mission Essential Inc., Aim Center Mass houses a climate-controlled, eight-lane shooting range with lighted stalls to enhance marksmen’s vision. The facility also encompasses three archery ranges outfitted with the TechnoHunt bow-hunting system, which lets guests test their aim on virtual trophies such as bear, elk, and herds of Oscar statues. An online zombie-shooting game further entertains clientele outside the range.
At lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunches, the culinary team at Ailsa's Restaurant & Bar presents an upscale spin on classic American cuisine. They top fried-green tomatoes with deep-fried gouda, slather an Angus beef burgers in red-pepper mayo, and baste lamb chops in a peach-bourbon glaze, using numerous ingredients sourced from local farmers. Like its food, Alisa's interior draws from elements of both fine and casual dining, with elegant light fixtures dangling from exposed wooden beams and paintings adorning the wood-paneled bar.
When night falls, Alisa's models a bistro pub atmosphere. Live entertainment enthralls guests on Friday and Saturday nights, and competitors gather every Thursday night from 10 p.m. to midnight for trivia, or as some know it, a way to study for the LSATs while drinking.
Insides Pad Thai, mint green and soft yellow walls surround linen-topped tables populated with traditional Thai dishes. A grandiose mural of a seaside vista blankets one wall, and sheer curtains block out the sun and its inane chattering. It's within this airy, relaxed atmosphere that servers shuttle out savories from an easy-to-navigate menu that has separate sections for stir-fries, curries, noodles, and vegetarian items.
The slice savants at Vincenzo's Pizzeria and Pastas hand-toss New York–style dough to bedeck with more than 20 fresh toppings including italian sausage, feta cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes. When they're not sculpting hearty pastas and hoagies, chefs also sling jumbo slices to satisfy individual cravings or patch holes in coats made of pizza. Catering options fend off hungry hordes with comfort fare such as buffalo wings, baked ziti, and herb-crusted roast beef.
