The scent of grilling lamb, beef, and chicken filters throughout the dining room of Nour Mediterranean Cafe, hinting at marinades, garlic, and herbs. Other Mediterranean staples shine, from the olive oil sprinkled across the pita bread to the yogurt sauce, hummus that drape gyros, and the nour sauce and hot bread. The chefs also twist together stuffed grape leaves, roast eggplants for baba ghanouj, and dice herbs for tabbouleh. Baklava bakes to an even gold in the kitchen, and cups of turkish coffee keep patrons awake through slideshows from a boss’s vacation at the mattress store.
For more than 30 years, Lucy's Restaurant's chrome counters, tiled floors, retro barstools, and wooden diner tables have surrounded customers searching for casual and traditional Tex-Mex cuisine. Chefs start the day with breakfast plates ranging from french toast and omelets to huevos rancheros and huevos norteños. To sate appetites at lunch and dinner, they also craft Mexican dishes such as fried pork carnitas, beef and chicken fajitas, and Mexican-style rib-eye steak, as well as their signature machaca: a dish of shredded beef or chicken, egg, onion, and chili con queso.
Whether slathered on bone-in or boneless wings, more than 15 sauces flavorfully complement Hot Chicks Wing House's delectable bar fare. The sauces range from cooling coats of raspberry and tango mango to piquant sheathes of spicy barbecue and exorcist habanero, which can only be eaten with a pitchfork. In addition to wings, chefs concoct heaping portions of classic bar fare such as golden-brown fried appetizers, burgers, and sandwiches. As baskets of wings flap to tables, rounds of karaoke and flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports keep guests' other four senses occupied.
At Tacos Chinampa, a taco isn't so much a taco as it is a work of art. What else can you call a freshly fried tortilla stuffed with balanced, seasoned meat and toppings such as grilled onions, radishes, cilantro, and avocado, or the restaurant's specialty, al pastor? The family-owned eatery, opened in 1972, also puts its tortillas and fresh ingredients to use in other dishes such as the quesadilla platter and, of course, a chips and salsa appetizer that's good enough to be a meal on its own.
