Situated beneath an arrangement of glowing peach blossoms, couples clink glasses of house sake and white wine together, seated at dark tables that dot the low-lit dining room. Then again, everything inside Haru is done with the utmost attention to detail, which goes far beyond just the atmosphere. When it comes to sushi, each roll is made with deference to a multisensory experience: the feel of the weighty rolls, the colorful presentation, and the balance of flavors. Reaching back into traditional Japanese cuisine with hibachi dinners, yet creating brand new sushi ideas with an ever-changing chef's menu, a meal here can be a surprise at every visit.
Comfort food doesn't have a reputation for being healthy, but the cooks at Fresh Market Cafe strive to change that by putting a nutritious twist on southern favorites. The kitchen staffers prepare their vegetables in chicken stock or a ham base, eschewing grease, oil, or butter for healthier alternatives. Baked fresh every morning, their pies, skillet cornbread, and entrees contain no MSG or artificial flavors, instead relying on fresh and natural ingredients. Customers pressed for time can take advantage of the carry-out and drive-thru options, or they can enjoy a leisurely meal in the restaurant.
Southern Pride BBQ takes its name seriously. Pitmaster Evan Riddle and his BBQ crew cook pulled pork, beef brisket, and ribs, keeping the menu options sweet, simple, and Southern. Among the BBQ options: smoked pork BBQ served on Texas toast, St. Louis-style ribs, and real Texas beef brisket. Guests can pair meats and sandwiches with Southern-style sides made from scratch such as fried corn on the cob and baked beans. If there's any room left after all the barbecue, and even if there's not, house-made dessert offerings include MeeMaw's chocolate pie or made-from-scratch banana pudding.
Just like the holiday its name signifies, Cinco De Mayo celebrates Mexico, specifically its distinctive cuisine. Classic dishes include carne asada, or grilled sirloin steak and sautéed veggies served with tortillas, and chicken enchiladas topped with sour cream. Seafood also dots the menu in the form of grilled jumbo shrimp doused in ranchero sauce or stuffed into cheesy quesadillas. Cinco De Mayo also dishes out chicken sandwiches and hamburgers more American than the herds of monster trucks from which all SUVs are born.
Owner Elias Habib and the staff at Mediterranean Fish and Grill serve up Mediterranean cuisine and seafood with a healthy twist. Free from unhealthy fats, and cooked with olive oil and healthy spices, their dishes include New York strip shish kababs, spiced chicken shawarma gyros, and Dungeness crab cakes. They can also pair these delicious dishes with sides such as hummus, fresh tzatziki, and stuffed grape leaves.
