The Cajun Stop is known for its po’ boys, so at lunch it cuts to the chase by offering a dine-in po’ boy lunch with a small sandwich and a side of chicken-and-sausage gumbo. There are 17 versions, including soft-shell crab, fried crawfish, Louisiana hot sausage, and roast beef.

The chefs at Crave Sushi construct pieces of edible Asian art in a sleek lounge with accents the ruby-red hue of ahi tuna. Owner Linny Hoang's chefs give maki a makeover at a sushi bar, slipping blades through inventive ingredients and twisting soy paper or seaweed into creations including the Cheetah roll, a bundle of surimi crab mix, cream cheese, and cucumbers dusted with Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Diners stroll past, crowded bento boxes tucked beneath their arms, or linger postmeal over homemade fried-banana wontons and electrically hued drinks. Bubbies mochi balls are imported from Hawaii to draw grins, much like a long-lost cousin on a confusing sitcom, and happy chatter fills the lounge late into the evening on weekends.
