Bolstered by chocolate-making credentials gained by studying in Italy and San Francisco, Coco's Chocolate Cafe owner Fred Moore leads his team as they handcraft a menu of drinking chocolates and rich treats made from Valrhona and El Rey products. They give their signature turtles a twist with Madagascar vanilla beans, dip orange peels into pools of dark chocolate, and crown bourbon balls with sprinkles of chopped pecans. For romantic occasions, they also create lifelike chocolate roses ideal for presenting to a loved one or laying at the grave of a chocolate bunny. Inside the cozy café, warm lighting splashes from pendant lights onto tangerine walls and granite-topped tables as customers devour european mousse in white-chocolate cups and cool off with vanilla affogatos—chilled espresso and ice cream topped with fresh whipped cream and served in martini glasses. The shade of a red awning makes the outdoor patio's wrought-iron tables ideal for savoring homemade ice creams, such as peppermint-infused mint chocolate chip, espresso vanilla, and a vegan cashew-based variety.

An open-flame hearth is at the heart of Cosi's kitchen space, giving sandwiches and pizzas their toasty crunch. But there's a lot more to the menu than what happens under the flame. The T.B.M. sandwich piles tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella inside warm flatbread and the tandoori chicken sandwich brightens up grilled chicken breast with red peppers. Even salads are hearty meals here, with choices such as the cobb mixing greens with grilled chicken breast, bacon, and gorgonzola in a sherry-shallot vinaigrette. The crown on top of any meal here is undoubtedly the s'mores, in which two to four diners roast their own marshmallows over a tabletop fire pit, then sandwich the sugar cloud with chocolate and graham crackers before dragging their sleeping bags into the kitchen for a night's rest.

In 1818, George and Elizabeth Moore built a new house in which to raise their future family. Their youngest daughter, Mariah, would go on to spend her entire life in the home her parents had bequeathed to her. When Rick Kelley and David Sears decided to transform the historic residence into a restaurant nearly a century after her passing, they chose the name to honor its longest-term resident. They also added a 3,000-square-foot expansion and restored the fireplaces, wood flooring, and brick walls to their original appearance.

Thanks to these refurbishments, Mariah?s old home seems to have found new life in the 21st century. Where she used to cook, chefs now hand-cut steaks and slide thin-crust pizzas into a large brick oven for firing. As Bowling Green's oldest standing brick structure, the nearly 200-year-old Mariah Moore House offers diners much to gaze at if they can pry their eyes away from the hearty fare on their plates. The building?s historic accents include a Brunswick bar top from the 1880s, an aged carousel horse, and a TV-video wall salvaged from Grover Cleveland?s presidential situation room.

Pangea Cafe's owner and chef Justin Crandall strives to locally source the ingredients for his palate-pleasing, culture-crossing menu. Supper selections shine with entrees such as the parmesan-rosemary chicken, pan-seared and flanked by a red-pepper-and-mozzarella infused risotto cake ($14.99), and the tortilla-crusted shrimp, doused in chipotle marinara ($11.25 lunch; $13.99 dinner). The Asian flavors of napa cabbage, crisp carrots, and tasty noodles tossed with soy vinaigrette come in a range of culinary incarnations, from a lunch salad ($7.54) or a wrap ($7.35) to a succinctly satisfying supper salad ($8.29). A zesty roster of pizzas ($10.99–$14.99) emerges from the oven garnished with traditional toppings such as pepperoni and mushroom, as well as more adventurous adornments including banana peppers, jalapeños, and GI Joes.
