Year round, Dandy Fine Dining Restaurant Cruise sets sail down the Potomac in riverboats that fete short-distance travelers with live music, dancing, and gourmet continental cuisine. Passengers snap photos of cherry trees fluttering in pastel pink from the expansive upper deck on springtime cruises, or savor bites of beef burgundy and watch the President balance a star on top of the Washington Monument in the winter. Cruises embark from Alexandria and glide up to Georgetown before making their way back to port.
At Let's Dish!, families select healthy, hearty meals to eat at home without having to dedicate valuable time to planning, shopping, or preparation. After placing an order online, patrons schedule time for an in-store session where they assemble dishes that are made from fresh ingredients, customized to taste, and then, like Sleeping Beauty, frozen to prevent them from aging. Meal menus rotate monthly and include homestyle selections, such as pork tenderloin, pot roast with mashed potatoes, and rosemary and mustard grilled sirloin steaks. The preassembled Dish-n-Dash entrees allow for speedy pickup service, freeing families to spend more quality bonding time sorting the mail by size and color. On a regional scale, Dish Delivery's reach expands from New York City to North Carolina.
After visiting several sushi and hibachi restaurants, Jian Yi Pan noticed a trend of degrading portion sizes and quality. In an effort to reverse this trend, with the aid of his sushi-loving 5-year-old daughter, Jian opened Sumo. Celebrating its one-year anniversary, the chefs of Sumo prepare hibachi-style meals for their guests by frying rice and grilling fresh proteins on giant skillets built into the middle of the restaurant's tables. Although the delicious aroma of their food certainly commands attention, they capture the full admiration of their guests with stunning knife and fire tricks, such as summoning flames or juggling blades as they cook. Behind the sushi bar, they practice a less flashy form of knife work as they carefully slice rice, meat, fish flown in from Japan, and seaweed into bite-size colorful rolls and morsels. As sushi and hibachi dishes fight for dinner supremacy, Sumo?s decor celebrates the celebrity of sumo wrestlers in feudal Japan by showing their contests of strength beneath the rising sun and the adoration of kimono-clad fans as they walk the streets of cities and villages.
In 1991, tired of sating their late-night delivery cravings with pizza, University of Florida pals Matt Friedman and Adam Scott concocted an alternative snack in their frat house's kitchen. Many hours and tweaked sauce recipes later, the duo dispensed their brand of buffalo wings to the university’s students, selling out their stock in the first two nights. Since relocating from the frat house to its two original Gainesville storefronts, Wing Zone has opened nearly 100 locations nationwide, supplying wing lovers with boneless bites slathered in 15 award-winning flavors, including nuclear habañero, garlic parm, and blue buffalo. Three of the pair’s sauces have garnered awards at the National Buffalo Wing Festival, which recently inducted Adam and Scott into the Buffalo Wing “Hall of Flame,” where they share reigniting duty every time a strong breeze extinguishes its symbolic eternal flame.
More than half a century ago, the first Mazzio's?simply called The Pizza Parlor?got its humble start in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today, the business has expanded to 140 locations across the United States?and counting. Mazzio's has adapted over time to make dinner fast and easy for customers by incorporating time-saving measures such as drive-through windows, but the franchise hasn't sacrificed quality. The menu still features pan and thin-crust pizzas in such inventive varieties as cheeseburger, taco, and chicken alfredo. Baked lasagna and creamy six-cheese pasta are among the other authentic Italian entrees. Then there's the signature calzone ring, a massive cheese- and meat-filled creation that's ideal to split with friends or to present the Statue of Liberty when you ask for her hand in marriage.
