The Pecan Restaurant's head chef Tony Morrow collects ingredients from the recipes of his favorite chefs, finding ways to work each of them into his own cuisine. The first flavor he fell in love with was pecans, a staple of his mother's cooking. Later in life, he encountered the rich spices of Cajun and Indian cooking, the perfectly prepared meats in French recipes, and the delicate pastas of the best Italian kitchens. He took these culinary experiences and, inspired, created his own masterpieces with each one, blending and changing each until he created a type of southern cooking all his own.
He serves his fusion food in a classic southern-style dining room full of light woods and white tablecloths complemented by the deep red curtains that hang around the space. During the eatery’s remodeling, a giant Coca-Cola advertisement—first painted in 1917—was discovered beneath the room’s drywall. Now re-exposed and retouched, it emblazons an exposed brick wall and adds last-century charm to the dining room, reminding its guests of a time when life was simpler and cola poured from the drinking fountains.

WhipLash prepares a menu of healthy, creative cuisine. Hogging the culinary spotlight are the café’s Break-Neck pizzas, all prepared on a thin, crispy house-made crust topped with house-made pizza sauce and caramelized cheese. Taste the Athens Classic’s ham-and-italian sausage ($17 or $22) or crunch into the ground beef and jalapenos waiting on top of the Old Mexico ($14.50 or $18.50). Hearty sandwiches such as the mango chicken ($7.50) and the B.L.A.T. (bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato) ($7.50) keep mouths from wandering off between bites, and pasta salads provide a delicious alternative to the disappointing experience of eating pasta or salad by itself.
Banks of fog roll through the neon passageways of a seaside village beset by a dastardly pirate in Laser Voyage Cafe's themed laser-tag arena. When not blasting lances of light at each other through the watery maze, players crawl and bend through a maze of laser lights designed to emulate a scene from a heist movie or an extreme version of Charlotte’s Web. A host of arcade games invites guests to unleash their trigger fingers on digital foes, press pedals to the metal, or settle disputes with disco-lit dance-offs.
Thanks to the guidance of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, the culinary team at Park's Edge is proud to welcome locals into its newly renovated interior to sample contemporary American fare. Chef Jorge Pacheco summons the fragrant memories of his mother's and grandmother's kitchens as he puts his years of cooking to use in the eatery of his longtime partner, Park's Edge owner Richard Wadlington, Jr. Pacheco enhances pan-seared seafood and succulent cuts of lamb with creative flourishes, such as worcestershire-compound butter and apricot-pistachio relish. He then passes his ambrosial entrees off to friendly servers, who ferry them to guests sitting in the chocolate-hued dining room or kicking back beneath the shade of tall trees and curious UFOs on the secluded patio.
