Sunlight pours through the large windows of Maltby's Restaurant, illuminating the wood accents and English-pub-inspired decor that populates the restaurant’s spacious bar and dining room. But, even as the interior screams "authentic pub," the menu slyly mouths "eclectic cuisine." While traditional pub dishes such as fish 'n' chips and beer-battered onion rings comfort tongues with familiar flavors, other dishes work with less predictable tastes. Beds of fries welcome dashes of gourmet ingredients, including grilled jalapeños, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, and sea salt infused with chipotle and truffle oil. All-natural Niman Ranch beef patties cozy up to buns in each of the pub’s burgers, and large salads sport only locally sourced, organic leafy greens. The restaurant's tavern specials mix it up by serving steaming plates of barbecue baby back ribs and spicy risotto jambalaya, whereas the weekend brunch menu pairs classic English and American breakfast platters with tequila sunrises, bloody marys, and Pimm’s Cups.
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Most people wouldn't brag of being stepped on by a celebrity. Then again, most people aren't made of wood and warmed by a spotlight. If the stage at Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club could speak, it would boast about its supporting role in uproarious performances from the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, and Ellen DeGeneres. Since 1979, Rooster's stage has given seasoned jokesters, rising stars, and sentient whoopee cushions the opportunity to coax laughs, giggles, and guffaws from the club's audience. Club-goers stay loose with visits to the full bar, where top-shelf liquors, California wines, and 15 beers soften throats parched from laughter and accompany the club's selection of snacks and munchies.
Large TV screens broadcast international soccer and rugby games as guests seated behind a wooden bar pair bites of Lilly Mac's Irish pub fare with sips of Guinness. Authentic dishes include banger sandwiches topped with HP sauce, irish stew, and fish and chips. Weekly entertainment such as Irish dancing, performances by live bands, and karaoke draws in revelers. Trivia held on Wednesday nights test teams’ knowledge as they compete for money off their bar tabs.
Fresh seafood and dry-aged steaks shape the menu at Scott's Seafood, which brings an elegant, marina-style setting to a sunny corner of Palo Alto. White linens swath every tabletop, their pristine hue imperiled by forkfuls of clam linguini tossed in garlic wine sauce and blackened red snapper served with salsa and lime sour cream. Roasted red potatoes and vegetables accompany Scott's Maine lobster tail, which diners splash into saucers of decadent drawn butter. Though the seafood shines, it shares the limelight with filet mignon, ribeye, and New York strip steaks—cuts of Angus beef dry-aged and grilled to perfection. Tastefully clad in white button-downs and ties, Scott's waiters make knowledgeable recommendations for pairings from the wine list, which emphasizes California vintages but also includes bottles from France, Italy, and Australia. Scott's also maintains a handsome, fully-stocked bar with mahogany-stained woodwork, leather-upholstered stools, and flat-panel TVs for watching the latest weather reports.
