In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location customers can sample thin pitas that encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for its bread and meats, and by offering a selection of healthy sandwiches.
Located in the historical Van Antwerp skyscraper, Cafe Royal sates appetites for steak, seafood, and pasta in a sophisticated, early 20th-century atmosphere. Appetizers such as calamari ($12) and Cajun shrimp ($10) warm up stomach engines for more hearty fuel such as the grilled tuna with wasabi aioli and a ginger-soy sauce ($28) and other seafood selections. A classic 8-ounce grilled filet mignon with choron sauce or cognac-peppercorn sauce ($32) reminds steak knives why they chose not to pursue buttering careers. Diners can also opt for a pasta dish of portabella mushrooms crammed in ravioli houses that abut mountains of grilled chicken ($17) and finish the meal with a New York–style cheesecake dessert.

Cooks at all of the Buck’s Pizza Downtown franchise locations mix fresh dough each day and sprinkle crusts with pure mozzarella cheese. Founder Lance Benton selects the tomatoes for the sauce, which are sun ripened in the Central Valley of California and watered from springs in the high Sierra mountains. In the restaurants’ kitchens, chefs top pies with the carefully chosen, fresh-cut produce as well as barbecue chicken, aged cheddar, fresh basil, and marinated steak. They also construct pies that simulate the experience of eating a chicken club sandwich, spinach alfredo, or a bacon cheeseburger. Oven-baked buns for hoagie sandwiches brim with ham, hard salami, and italian dressing like the poetry of hungry castaways on desert islands.
Both tired of large-scale restaurant operations, industry veterans Mike Perez and chef Chris Beichler knew when they met and realized they had the same dream to create their own restaurant focusing on fresh seafood and produce from the Pacific Coast, it was as if fate had brought them together. Now, at Fuego Coastal Mexican Eatery, Beichler floods his enchiladas, gourmet tacos, and chili rellenos with flavor from tasty condiments such as handmade cilantro aioli and salsas made with fresh tomatoes that never knew the horrors of living in a can. Diners watch as fresh guacamole is prepared tableside and sip tangy mojitos, margaritas, and more than 28 tequilas. The fresh food won Fuego Coastal Mexican Eatery a Nappie Award from the 2012 Lagniappe Readers’ Choice Awards.
