Working behind his traditional, glass-front sushi bar, Chef Sho makes believers out of discriminating palates by forging an alluring Japanese menu of delicately fried delights and richly flavored fish straight from the sea. Warm, exotic appetizers such as broiled squid fire gustatory starting pistols before diners delve into heartier entrees from the kitchen, including beef marinated in teriyaki sauce, pork sautéed in ginger sauce, and vegetable tempura.

Ranked first of 177 Zagat rated sushi restaurants, Takara Japanese Restaurant’s sushi bar showcases Sho’s knack for marrying unique flavors, as tasted in the Love lobster roll, whose spicy mayo adds a tangy zest to sweet crustacean flavors. Rather than swallowing a television remote, diners can mute growling stomachs with the Oz roll’s blend of tuna and buttery avocado sliced with laser-like precision. Takara Japanese Restaurant offers catering for private and holiday events, please contact for more information.

Encompassed in the forest's green embrace, Pine Ridge Golf Club supplies a scenic golf setting where players can hone their skills at a first-rate practice facility. For a delightful session of tenderizing golf balls, head to Pine Ridge's driving range and launch ball after ball off the large grass pad (open for use on weekends until Labor Day, which is Monday, September 5). Golfers can also break in shy putters on the spacious putting green, where they'll master the tap, bend, and roll by sinking shots from near or far. This Groupon also includes a $10 discount on all rounds played after 5 p.m. any day of the week, giving players a chance to venture out into the real golfing world, which is even more dangerous than it sounds.

Legacy Bar & Grill makes it easy to have a good time. With a casual, friendly atmosphere complemented by a rustic, all-wood interior, the establishment greets gaggles and individuals alike with warmth and fun. On the menu, classic pub food like wings, burgers, and steak sandwiches rub elbows with approachable plates of fusion and multicultural cuisine, such as edamame dumplings, pulled pork tacos, and knishes. Eight TVs playing live sports from basketball to football circle the bar, where Guinness and Bud slosh into steins while bartenders shake Baileys-infused cocktails. But for many, the Legacy reputation hinges on its noncomestible offerings: in addition to live music or DJ sets with no cover charge every single weekend, a roster of events offers things like country line dancing and karaoke.

Cars whizzing down the North Wading River road could easily miss Michael Anthony's Food Bar, a handsome restaurant nestled amid leafy trees and residential homes at the threshold of wine country. The lucky patrons who do find the eatery, however, are rewarded with the dazzling site of pristine white tablecloths set with sapphire glasses, colorful hot-air balloons dangling from lofty white rafters, and bright walls speckled with vivid decor. Diners can then take a seat upon one of the soft cushions to nibble on oysters and toast their great discovery with a glass of fine wine.

Meanwhile, in the restaurant's kitchen, Chef Michael Anthony is hard at work folding fresh seafood, premium meats, and imaginative sauces into a variety of small plates, pastas, and seasonal specialties such as the pumpkin chicken with balsamic-rosemary butter or the duck breast with apricot-apple chutney. Michael has spent the last 25 years perfecting his signature "New American Cuisine" recipes, favoring inventive ingredients such as toasted-sage olive oil.

The Stone and Paddle’s California-style thin-crust pizzas acquire their subtle crunch while baking atop a hot stone in a 600-degree oven. Gourmet toppings such as hot sausage, shrimp and artichoke, and spinach and gorgonzola grace the pies, which share table space with flatbread sandwiches that are also stone-baked. Though chefs must return nightly to the steel-encased bunker where they safeguard their secret dough recipe, guests can enjoy a new location in Rocky Hill, linger on the shaded patio at the Vernon location or watch sports on Manchester's flat-screen TVs.

At Caruso's, Italian cuisine is the star of the show. On an outdoor patio or indoor dining room, forks can be found twirling through plates of spaghetti and linguine or spearing nubs of homemade gnocchi. In the kitchen, chefs make sure to use fresh ingredients in each of their dishes, sourcing items locally when possible. Local littleneck clams made an appearance on the menu, while Long Island's own Pellegrini chardonnay and merlot can be found amidst the wine list's Italian and Californian options. Diners may also opt to recreate the restaurant experience in their own home with a take-home pie from Caruso's attached brick-oven pizzeria and white tablecloths draped over the family dog.
