Rita's chefs sate ravenous appetites with a menu of piquant Tex-Mex dishes and salve warm tongues with a cornucopia of more than 100 tequilas. Plow through one of Rita's fajita wraps, a flour tortilla envelope stuffed with a savory blend of hot caramelized onions and peppers and a choice of marinated mesquite-grilled meats including steak ($5.50) and chicken ($4.50). Rita's mexican pizza pairs pico de gallo with a variety of carnivorous delights on a circular tortilla crust ($11–$12) to successfully blend Latin and Italian flavors just like Leonardo da Vinci's secret hot sauce recipe. Romp through a variety of tacos ($4.50+) before peering into Rita's Tequila House's agave-soaked kaleidoscope of tequilas to wet whistles before a night on the town or lengthy prank calls to Bacchus.
Executive chef Matt Murphy delights diners at breakfast, lunch, and dinner with traditional Irish fare and gourmet pub cuisine sprinkled with Gaelic influence. Make a morning Dublinesque with the Full Irish Breakfast, which sates trilling tummies with two sunny-side-up eggs, irish sausage, roasted mushrooms, and potato hash ($11.75), or seek the sweeter side with banana-and-pecan oatmeal pancakes drizzled with Irish whiskey-caramel sauce ($7.50). Midday's corned beef and provolone sandwich arrives grilled and layered with a fried egg ($8.75), its gravity-defying heights the despair of hungry Newtons everywhere. Open a delectable dinner with a plate of slow-cooked smoked lamb belly, buoyed by a polenta green-onion cake ($10), or move straight to a main course of fig- and brie-stuffed muscovy duck breast dressed with a sour-cherry brandy sauce ($23.95).
The atmosphere in Melange's speakeasy-inspired dining room hurtles diners' senses decades into the past. Beneath sultry lanterns and hanging chandeliers, dapper waiters in waistcoats glide from table to table with gin fizzes, aviations, and other classic cocktails. The clink of glasses mingles with the purr of live jazz and ragtime music as mixologists swirl bitters, waters, and spirits behind the bar.
In the kitchen, executive Chef Brady Broussard oversees a busy kitchen staff as they fold premium seafood and meats into his menu of fine French-creole dishes. Drawing from years of culinary scholarship and experience in high-end restaurants, the New Orleans native infuses classic dishes with contemporary twists. A pork chop comes coated in shitake-mushroom demi-glace, and house-smoked duck hides inside a quesadilla, much like gangsters trying to escape Alcatraz during the prison cafeteria's taco night.
Twinkling string lights pepper the high ceilings like sprawling constellations. Imported beer bottles sit contentedly in a row against the canary-yellow walls. Around it all swirl aromas that conjure visions of German dishes laced with globetrotting influences from Poland, Hungary, and even France. With the click-clack of Jagerhaus's kitchen door, waiters arrive to populate blue and golden tablecloths with soft baked pretzels, sausage plates, and veal or pork wiener schnitzel. Towering one-liter glasses rise to punctuate expressions of cheer, spilling sunny drops of Hofbräu hefeweizen and earth-toned rivulets of darker lagers from Spaten and Paulaner. While sipping an Italian Lavazza coffee, diners can sink forks into a german chocolate cake or cruise the eatery's WiFi for ways to craft lederhosen from leftover corned beef.
