Vito?s Italian Restaurant and Bar is part eatery, part arcade. Pool and air-hockey tables populate the floor, and video games like Golden Tee provide kids and adults alike with hours of fun?or just the few minutes it takes to get a table. The restaurant even has a crane machine for players to try to nab a stuffed animal or a stuffed pepperoni. A jukebox plays popular tunes while diners refuel with hand-tossed thin-crust pizzas and deep-dish pies. Chefs can customize crusts with garlic butter or Cajun seasoning, depending on patrons' whims; they top specialty pizzas with grilled chicken, bacon, and ranch dressing, to name just one. The menu also offers burgers, sandwiches, pasta, and the popular Goofy Bread?plain dough baked with garlic butter, mozzarella, and parmesan.

In 2012, Real Detroit Weekly named Crave Restaurant + Sushi Bar Detroit's best sushi restaurant, praising the Mediterranean-Japanese hot spot for its "impeccably fresh fish." The standout signature rolls run the gamut from king crab–stuffed rainbow rolls to grilled lobster rolls garnished with shiitake mushrooms. Diners can also nosh on freshly sliced fatty tuna and sea urchin from the extensive sashimi selection. Crave's strong Mediterranean flair is evident in the roasted-beet caprese salad, the halal chicken breast, and the sea bass, served with succotash and warm gazpacho.

Each month, live music fills Crave's softly lit interior. You can schedule private parties or high-stakes Go Fish! tournaments in the event room or the exclusive lounge. During warmer weather, the restaurant's Asian garden is an idyllic setting for outdoor events, with its bamboo bar and decorative Asian maples.
