Leonor's has been preparing meat-free Mexican food for nearly 30 years, and the current menu is modeled after the soy-dense Forever Young diet. Dishes include a traditional Mexican selection of burritos, tacos, and quesadillas with the restaurant's unique vegetarian and vegan spins. Some of those are on display in the Buffalo Bill burrito, that's packed with brown rice, steamed pinto beans, avocado, soy cheese, and veggies in a whole-wheat tortilla.
Though Leonor's is rooted in Mexican food, there are other culinary influences present as well: the spaghetti dinner entangles soy meatballs with whole-wheat noodles and the soy hamburger is topped with a leafy crown of lettuce and alfalfa sprouts. Stone-ground whole-wheat pizzas carry their own surprises—molasses and honey are infused into the dough—and can be customized with toppings such as cilantro, avocado, and tinier pizzas.

Diners can also dig their digits into savory handhelds such as the blackened ahi sandwich ($12.49) or Big Wangs burger ($9.99).
In addition to its azure waters and its intoxicating climate, the Mediterranean is known for the rich variety of herbs and spices that populate the cuisines of its people. Steeped in this tradition themselves, the cooks at Eilat Grill season their meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes with the same flavors found in bustling markets and cozy kitchens throughout the region. Their menu is packed with traditional favorites such as hummus plates, kabobs, and grill plates piled high with chicken, beef, and lamb, as well as four salmon entrees prepared with different international twists. Diners can also sample exotic breakfasts such as shakshuka, a poached egg dish soaked in a homemade spicy tomato sauce, or stick with familiar favorites such as classic American burgers. No matter what they order, guests take their meals in a romantic dining room featuring accents such as Jerusalem stone columns, tiled arches, and statues of Cupid updating his LiveJournal. This scene is occasionally joined by visions of colorful cakes and tarts, which make their home in the displays of the restaurant’s bakery.

Pizzas, sandwiches, and seafood selections such as the grilled salmon ($21) round out the list of entrees that, when stacked atop each other, would be taller than a gaggle of Yao Mings.
