Mazzio's Italian Eatery's staff rolls out a buffet for lunch and dinner populated with tasty Italian cuisine that they also serve à la carte. The restaurant's staff has been perfecting its culinary modus operandi for more than 50 years, long enough to evolve the pizza selection to include three levels of thickness. Chefs bake standard, deep-dish, and thin crusts—available in gluten-free form—and load each with toppings such as caramelized onions and giant pepperoni. The kitchen makes pasta plates to order, some baked in the oven, such as lasagna, and some tossed in sauce, such as the mainstay spaghetti and meatballs. The signature calzone radiates the ambrosial scent of pizza dough stuffed with meat and cheese, and it's meant to be shared, unlike a pogo stick.

Proprietor Anne Amelot-Homes and her father, executive chef Christian Amelot, want to fly you to La Ferté-Bernard, their hometown in France. Unfortunately, paying airfare for everyone who asks would be too expensive, so they opened Anjou—an eatery that aims to bring the cuisine of their French village stateside. And amid dark wooden furniture and stonewalls, their menu of authentic bistro fare achieves just that. Waiters whisk out plates of steak frites coated in maitre d' butter and bowls filled with cassoulet—stewed navy beans with sausage and duck confit. White tablecloths also frame American-inflected entrees such as Café de Paris burgers garnished with herb butter, brie, and Gustave Eiffel's abandoned blueprints for a New-York-Paris skyway.:m]]
