Q&A with the Owner

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?

Our Margherita Pie is one of our most popular specialty pizzas. We start with fresh dough and drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the crust, then we cover it with tomato slices and fresh basil leaves, top it with our freshly grated provolone cheese, and bake it. It's very light, but hearty. The flavors meld together to give you an authentic pizza with our twist?provolone cheese.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We're very passionate about what we do. We have exclusive specialty pizzas and one-of-a-kind subs. When the weather is good, we have al fresco dining.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

Our menu is focused around pizza. We have traditional Italian food items as well as other complementary offerings that round out our menu and provide a good selection. Our roots are in pizza, but we love everything "food," so we try to give customers our best version of what we like to eat.

At Rotuno’s Texas Style Barbeque, the cooking never stops. That’s because each night the staff loads the eatery’s custom smoker with high-quality meats that slow cook into the morning. Owner Tim Rotuno sees to it that the menu is stacked with all the classic barbecue dishes, from St. Louis–style ribs, to Texas-style smoked sausage, to smoked corned beef. Southern sides such as baked beans and coleslaw round out finger-licking meals.

At Dervish Grill, chefs recreate dishes that have been a part of Mediterranean and Turkish culture for centuries. However, just because the recipes are old doesn't mean that the ingredients aren't fresh. On the contrary, each day, chefs turn fresh vegetables and spices into beloved treats including stuffed grape leaves, tabouli, and their signature Dervish salad--a conglomeration of arugula, grapes, walnuts, and feta tossed with pomegranate vinaigrette.

Chefs also observe another important Middle Eastern tradition—all meat dishes, from the succulent filet mignon kebab to eggplant stuffed with ground beef and lamb—are made with Halal meats. They're also happy to make dishes more or less spicy, and maintain a selection of vegetarian options for those that prefer to dine meat-free.

No matter what entrees they choose, diners often pair their meals with a Turkish tipple from the restaurant's selection of more than two dozen wines. The drink menu is home to traditional staples, such as Turkish tea and coffee, but also spotlights imported Turkish malts and locally brewed craft beer.

The environmentally conscious chefs at Tree Hugger's Cafe unite locally sourced organic ingredients into healthy, flavorful fare that respects Mother Nature. Every dish on the eco-friendly menu comes free of hormones, pesticides, and plastic fruit, and many are also vegetarian, vegan, raw, or gluten-free. Paninis cram fillings such as grilled eggplant and homemade pesto between slices of fresh artisan bread, and burgers mash up such ingredients as organic chicken and feta or sweet potato and quinoa. Breakfast dishes include house-made granola, muffins, and mixed-berry couscous. Tree Hugger's Cafe tries to reduce its carbon footprint by using compostable containers, blowing kisses to clouds, and outfitting the café's interior in recycled decor.
