Odyssey Greek Taverna has two locations, both of which maintain old-world charm with crisp white linens, dramatic pillars, stone-textured cream walls, and interspersed colorful murals. Dinners begin with bites of moussaka, which layers eggplants, zucchini, and potatoes for a multitoned meal that doubles as a cutaway model of the earth's crust. The gyro plate showcases spreads of beef and lamb with pita, tzatziki sauce, tomato, and onions, and warm, flaky phyllo dough wraps around spanakopita —a savory spinach-cheese pie.
An extensive wine list loosens first dates’ tongues so they can give better PowerPoint presentations detailing their romantic qualifications.
Every month, Sweet Tomatoes rolls out a new roster of fresh-made eats—including many vegetarian and gluten-free selections—in its wholesome buffet. Simmering soups bubble with vegetables and savory chicken, alongside tossed salads tumbling with crisp produce, much like an Ent in a washing machine. On Sunday mornings, plates fill with comforting breakfast classics such as belgian waffles and scrambled eggs.
Spicy, subtle, sweet, and sour: that might sound like a lot to handle, but when it comes to a traditional Thai meal at Thai Sawasdee, the chefs aim to create a harmonious blend of all these flavors. From five styles of curry to fried rice dishes and specialty entrees, the menu captures many authentic Thai dishes at this cozy eatery.
It all starts with an egg at Pulp Kitchen, where the staple forms the foundation for a gourmet brunch menu studded with organic ingredients. Artists within their chosen medium, the chefs fry seven types of benedicts and augment a host of classic bakes and scrambles with sweet-and-savory surprises such as the caramelized-pear, cinnamon, and cream-cheese omelet. The kitchen also dispenses decadent, housemade breads and crepes that are designed as a gateway for a habit-forming praline sauce—their own blueberry compote—or savory truffle butter. To satisfy more wholesome cravings, fresh fruit is pressed until it fills cups with antioxidant-rich juice, and nimble hands strip rich yolks from healthy scrambles and whole-wheat french toast.
Club sandwiches and half-pound grass-fed Angus burgers represent the direction of lunch dishes, most of which can be dipped in bowls of the neighboring diners' daily soup. The dining room channels an airy, Martha Stewart variety of farm chic, with playful sculptures of roosters strutting along taupe walls and tidy white moulding that matches the chairs.
At Omega Restaurant Pancake House & Bakery, sizable omelets, skillets full of hash browns, and fresh eggs are mainstays on the menu no matter the hour—and the dining room is open until midnight every day. Sweet options range from oven-baked apple pancakes to crepes, including one stuffed with Montmorency cherries and an imported Danish wine. There's also the onsite bakery, which produces delectable pies, danishes, and pastries.
The new owners of Omega Restaurant Pancake House & Bakery have instructed their chefs to be just as detailed with their afternoon dishes. Each burger patty is ground in-house, and homemade soup specials rotate daily. Alongside a sprawling list of sandwiches and wraps, dinner plates such as veal parmesan, and Athenian-style skirt steak bring an international touch to the table.
