Each day, the chefs at Pepperoni's Pizza's eight locations crush premium tomatoes into sauces, roll out homemade dough, then cover the freshly baked pies with natural mozzarella. Diners can build their own creations from more than 30 toppings, including bacon bits and pineapples, or opt for more than 10 specialty pizzas such as the New Yorker, smothered with heaping amounts of sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. Their menu also sates hearty appetites with more than 20 oven-baked subs, as well as local favorites such as calzones and smokey BBQ Buffalo wings.
Smoothies have long been considered the healthier cousins of their milkshake kinsmen. However, even though they typically contain fruit, they’re often filled with things that aren’t good for you. The beverage experts at Smoothie Factory don’t fall into this trap. Their more than 30 smoothie combinations configure fresh fruits such as peach, blueberry, and strawberry with nutritional boosts that include dietary fibers, amino acids, and antioxidants. They also whip up a handful of drinks made especially for kids, and devise athlete-friendly super-smoothies containing bonus protein shots and weight-gain formula.
Nikoz Fusion Grill's cooks fill their kitchen with aromas from sizzling mediterranean kabobs, Indian spices from the baking samosas, and the subtle peanut scent from the drizzle of sauce over the asian salads. Blending flavors and dishes from the Mediterranean, Greece, and Asia, the chefs craft savory gyro sandwiches alongside beef short ribs with special spices and fresh hummus. In addition to dine-in meals, they also fill trays with fusion cuisine for catered events such as birthday parties, retirement lunches, and retiring from the birthday-party circuit.
Roberto Rosa first discovered his love of cooking at age 13, when he began learning recipes from his grandmother Antonia. Two decades later, the owner of Antonia’s Cucina Italiana shares his love of all Italian fare, transforming chicken, seafood, veal, and house-made pasta into colorful dishes during lunch and dinner. Across the three locations, décor and amenities vary, from outdoor seating to exposed brick walls and checkered floors where diners can settle arguments over who pays the bill with games of human chess.
Pizza emerges from La Magia Cafe & Pizza’s stone oven with its crust crispy and its cheese topping turned a nice, golden brown. Since 1980, the kitchen has crafted a menu of Italian cuisine, including pasta dishes and veal-centric entrees, such as veal saltimbocca doused in a marsala cream sauce. Diners perch at dark-wood tables flanked by coral-colored walls, which on one side have faux windows painted on them overlooking a rolling countryside and the terra-cotta roofs of stucco homes. On the other wall are images of famous Italian landmarks such as the Colosseum in Rome, the Venetian canals, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, made famous the day Leonardo da Vinci spray painted “Leo Was Here” on it.
You don't have to order buckets of bland fries when catching the game on one of Musas Sports Bar's 40 televisions. In addition to domestic and imported brews, frozen margaritas, and cocktails made from more than 65 tequilas, the staff prepares Mexican favorites inside a full kitchen. The cooks assemble fresh ceviche each day, as well as staples including fajitas, tres leches cakes, and tacos filled with everything from ribeye steak to lobster. The wait staff ferries these delicacies out to the brightly decorated dining area or to the bar, where a backlit display changes colors. On select nights, diners can chew to the beat of music from live Latin bands or DJs.
