The menu at La Boca Mexican Restaurant & Cantina goes beyond the usual Tex-Mex fare. Alongside fajitas and quesadillas, you’ll find traditional tamales, slow-roasted pork shank, and hand-cut corn tortilla chips. A talented staff of servers and bartenders cultivate a laid-back, festive atmosphere, serving up Mexican beers on draft and a celebrated bloody mary that’s garnished with asparagus, cocktail shrimp, and grilled steak. The eatery's parchment-colored walls are covered with drawings of proud vaqueros and rustic Mexican scenery, forming an ideal backdrop for authentic dinners of mahi mahi tacos or jicama salad. Pub rockers, live karaoke backing groups, and cover bands provide a festive soundtrack.
The flavors of northern and southern Italy can be tasted from across the Atlantic at Stella D'oro. What seems like an impressive feat is actually quite simple: chef Sammy Cecunjanin just follows his family recipes. Dishes include classic pairings such as rigatoni, sausage, and white wine sauce, as well as heartier eats such as rack of lamb with a cognac sauce roasted into the meat. Unsurprisingly, lobster—which is the East Coast's official regional crustacean—finds its way onto the seafood-heavy menu by way of the lobster-filled ravioli, the lobster and pappardelle, and the lobster tail and linguini.
