Aristotle Grill packs its menu with savory Mediterranean cuisine that deals a delicious blow to hunger pangs. Begin the edible Mediterranean journey with a starter of hummus ($3.99), feta cheese with pita and walnuts ($3.99), or baba gannouj (roasted eggplant with olive oil, $3.99). Eaters can also enjoy a five-piece dish of buffalo wings ($5.99), which were invented by the Greeks after their cooks ran out of minotaur wings, before satisfying empty bellies with a traditional gyro ($5.99), a pita burger ($6.99), or the herbivore-friendly falafel ($7.99). Beef, steak, lamb, and chicken kabob dinners ($8.99+) also grace plates with their meaty presence and are served with rice and salad to preempt orders for rice and salad.
The sushi artisans at Azuma Sushi & Robata Bar assemble innovative Japanese dishes and artfully plated, seaweed-wrapped rolls during lunch and dinner hours. In Azuma’s signature roll ($11)—the first listed on its extensive menu—tuna, salmon, and whitefish get to know avocado and chili oil by virtue of sharing the same seaweed wrap, an orientation activity popularized in the Navy. The John Doe roll ($14) belies its name with bursts of spicy yellowtail and pepper tuna, and Azuma’s signature gazpacho ($6) cools palates with a soup of salmon, mango, avocado, and tomato juice. For hot dishes, the restaurant's waiters serve up a whole, grilled squid ($9), its 200 yards blanketed in spicy miso and ginger soy sauce. Robata-grilled specialties include eggplant skewers coated in a sweet, miso glaze ($3) and Alaskan black cod simmering in a miso marinade ($14).
Chefs at CiCi’s Pizza craft crusts from scratch daily before slathering on whole-milk mozzarella and sauce blended from vine-ripened tomatoes to construct a slew of savory pies. The all-you-can-eat buffet ($5.49/adult; $3.99/child) lets purists chow unlimited classic pizzas topped with cheese, ham, and Italian-style sausage, while adventurous eaters can chase rare species such as the buffalo chicken pizza or the Mexican-style Olé. A plethora of pastas and signature salads makes a health-conscious addition to any buffet plate or dinnertime craft project, and freshly baked brownies, apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls round out CiCi’s savory offerings. CiCi’s children’s buffet comes with unlimited drinks, while parents or grown-up ninja turtles can complement the adult pizza buffet with a regular ($1.89) or large ($2.39) cup of liquid refreshment. Toddlers younger than 3 fill their bellies for free, ensuring that they won’t deface their siblings' pizzas out of jealousy or feel tempted to eat the family’s bananaphone.
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.
