Sushi on the Roll Sushi on the Roll's adroit chefs carefully wrap vinegar-sprinkled rice, nori, and fresh seafood into creations that won the restaurant Best Sushi on the 2010 Fox 8 Akron-Canton Hot List. Classic maki favorites such as an eel or salmon roll satisfy piscine cravings, and spicy rolls such as the Moffa, layered with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura, work their pleasing pyromancy on palates. The eatery's chefs also host periodic hands-on Sushi 101 classes, which divulge the secrets of making nigiri and maki rolls as well as how to grab a good night's sleep by stuffing pillows with perfectly fluffy rice.
Neatly nestled on the edge of Chippewa Lake, The Oaks Lakeside crafts casual dinner fare with its menu of seafood, pasta, desserts, and more, all within the confines of a charming cottage. Soak up picturesque sunsets between sups of shrimp bisque, which mingles sautéed jumbo shrimp in the gregarious waters of a creamed sherry shrimp stock ($13), or sink main-course molars into the chicken cordon bleu ($19) or the almond-crusted awnings of the baked tilapia ($18). Meat-seeking maws can find solace in the egg-battered arms of the veal piccatta ($19), and restless sweet teeth can stretch out nighttime noshing with a selection from the dessert menu. Dinner bells ring at 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 1 p.m. on Sundays. Reservations are recommended.
The grill-masters at Legends sling up signature hot dogs, burgers, and traditional American fare to athletics aficionados in a casual sports-bar atmosphere. The menu showcases variations on a ballpark standard, such as the lucky dog, a half-pound of black Angus beef ($6.99), and the all-beef kosher t-o big dawg ($2.49), which fetches french fries on command. Pile puppies high with additional toppings of sauerkraut, chili, cheese, or jalapenos (75 cents each), or forego cylindrical meats in favor of the rodeo burger, a juicy patty anointed with a sizzling crown of bacon, cheddar, and onion straws ($7.99). Baskets of wings arrive swirled in chipotle lime, spicy barbecue, or one of 13 other sauces zestier than a quick-tempered umpire ($7 for 10 wings).
Some of the instructors at Lookaway Farm have worked with morgan horses for several decades. The equines, with their chocolate-hued necks arched proudly and their hooves beating quick drumrolls, respond to this extensive experience during lessons, trail rides, and competitions. All instruction is conducted in a one-on-one format and customized in accordance to the rider’s goals of achieving proper technique or making a novel about rollerblading cowpokes more realistic. With regular practice in the saddle, students of all ages can tap into the sport’s myriad benefits, including development of muscles, confidence, and coordination.
The first hole on the course at Rustic Hills Country Club carves an arc along the westerly banks of Rustic Hills Lake, a dramatic opening to the relatively short nine-hole track. With a par of 32, the course is dominated by four par 3s, yet makes up for its shorter layout with frequent hills that force swing adjustments and a steady diet of golf balls for the course's many water hazards?including one that almost entirely surrounds the seventh green.
Just off the golf course, the stately grounds of Rustic Hills Country Club encompass a fine- dining restaurant, Fireside Restaurant and Lounge which is also open to the public. Membership opportunities are available. Contact Rustic Hills for more information.
