Happy Cup's owners opened the business because they wanted to serve customers a frozen treat that was not only tasty, but also healthy. So they created a self-serve frozen-yogurt shop whose staffers crafted frozen yogurt from scratch daily using organic milk, yogurt, and sugar, as well as all-natural flavors. The proprietors quickly realized that people craved tasty, healthy food all the time—not just as a treat—and Happy Cup now fills that need.
Mornings there start off with a cup of organic coffee and organic steel-cut-oat oatmeal, a Greek yogurt bowl, or an anti-oxidant-filled açaí bowl. Greek yogurt bowls are available in flavors such as peanut butter + jelly, pistachio + dark chocolate, as well as cucumber + olive oil + pita chips. Açaí varieties are offered in flavors such as Amazing Almond and the SoCal, a made-from-scratch açaí sorbet with peanut butter, bananas, and almond milk topped with banana, hemp granola, cacao nibs, and honey. Lunchtime tempts taste buds with vegetarian wraps made with organic ingredients, as well as freshly baked goods. Happy Cup also satisfies with fresh fruit smoothies, which can be filled with protein-heavy Greek yogurt.
Tonino's Trattoria serves up traditional Roman-style cuisine culled from the sauce-saturated pages of owners Tonino and Angela's family cookbook. Diners who like their dinner as flat and vegetated as our planet will appreciate Tonino's array of inventive pizzas ($8.95–$17.95) crafted with fresh, homemade sauce and dough. Fork devotees can bask in a baked dish, such as lasagna or ravioli, or ogle the restaurant's pasta selection, which is extensive enough to lasso Italy's entire indigenous meatball population. Fettuccine puttanesca ($12.95) invites utensils to swirl through a ballroom of chopped olives, capers, mushrooms, bell peppers, and anchovies, polished with spicy marinara. Tonino's also pleases tipplers with a substantial selection of imported wines, beers, and a full bar.
Johnny Angel’s Diner is a 50s joint known for its burgers and fries, hand-dipped shakes and malts that harken back to a different era. Step right back to the doo wop days at the checkerboard tiled counter while sitting on one of the theme-appropriate peacock leather bar stools, or tuck into an overstuffed booth that comes complete with chrome trim. Menu options are equally of-an-age, including the Elvis breakfast special, which includes country-fried steak, two eggs and biscuits with sausage gravy, or a lunchtime sandwich like The King, a crusty grilled reuben done up with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss and Russian dressing on Rye. There’s often live music, a trivia night and of course, rocking karaoke to be had at Johnny Angel’s, making every visit its own unique party.
Like the Phoenician traders who set out from Lebanese ports in ancient times, the Barakat family has voyaged far and wide, spreading culinary excellence across three continents since the 1930s. Founded in 2008 by Pierre Barakat, Mandaloun Mediterranean Cuisine is the latest outpost of a dynasty that includes UK restaurants run by Pierre's nephews and his father John's original eatery back in Lebanon. Family tradition finds expression in recipes honed over decades, guiding chefs as they transform fresh ingredients into Mediterranean classics from veg-friendly falafel to meaty shawarma and kebabs. Sunlight glints off outdoor tables in front during the day, and belly dancers maze between white-linen-topped tables inside on some weekend nights.
For the cooks at Lila's Seafood & Steaks, no imitation seafood can ever compare to the real thing. That's why they never rely on imitation crabmeat; instead, they sell real snow crab legs by the pound and stuff mushrooms with actual blue crab and crab stuffing. Crab only skims the surface of Lila's selection, which ranges from conch fried into fritters to mussels coated in housemade seasoned butter.
Equally choosy about beef as they are about seafood, the cooks shape certified Angus cuts into half-pound burgers and 16-ounce T-bone steaks. To end feasts on a sweet note, the culinary team creates several housemade desserts, including peanut-butter pie, a more satisfying dish than peanut-butter cups that you pretend are tiny pies.
