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 squeals of tires and the cracks of bats reverberate across the grounds of Selden Batting & Grand Prix as fun-seeking guests get their blood pumping. Big kids and adults buckle up in gas-powered Grand Prix carts, whereas kids at least 50 inches tall get behind the wheel of Rookie Karts and those too tiny to drive slip into a double-seater next to Mom or Dad. After a victory lap, groups don helmets at the batting cages to swing at baseballs, softballs, and floating Faberge eggs. Inside the arcade, hands slam pucks at air hockey and shoo away impulsive jazz hands at Dance Dance Revolution, as redemption games challenge gamers to win prizes.

Selden’s ice-cream stand, meanwhile, overflows with more than 85 flavors, as well as rainbow italian ices, chocolate sundaes, and soft serve. Guests celebrating a birthday can make a reservation for an ice-cream-sundae party or other themed event at Selden, replete with games, go-kart rides, pizza, and sundaes.

Tropical Smoothie Café healthifies guests with thick thirst quenchers and savory stomach stuffers from a menu filled with smoothies, sandwiches, soups, and salads.

Choose from more than 50 flavors, such as mango magic and rockin' raspberry, a raspberry, strawberry, and banana concoction blended together by the vibrations of killer power chords and drum solos. Create your own mixtures or choose from café-created fruit-, dessert-, and coffee-based smoothies, such as the caffeinated caramel cream, featuring caramel, white chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, and nonfat yogurt. Supplements, such as matcha green tea, weight management, and energizer, can be added to sips to provide the body and tongue with an extra jolt akin to licking a fruit-filled nine-volt battery.

For four decades, Benkert’s Classic Delicatessen has been loading patrons with ample portions from a menu of breakfast eats, salads, sandwiches, and hot-lunch dishes. Customers can jump start their day with two eggs any style ($2.50) while gulping complimentary coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and surfing the free WiFi on a free wireless surfboard. For midday breaks, specialty salad sandwiches cover beds of bread in quilts of egg ($4.25) and shrimp ($6.25) salad. Gourmet wraps and sandwiches ($6.95) include the Fat Tony, packed with six cold cuts, mozzarella, peppers, greens, and vinaigrette, and protected by a hero bun toasted for its noble deeds. Hot sandwiches such as the barbecue chicken ($5.75) are hearty enough to scare away the most intimidating hunger hauntings. Accessorize entrees with sides of mac 'n' cheese ($4.99/lb.) or mozzarella sticks ($3.99), and cross the finish line with a sweet slice of pound cake ($1.95).
