  • Sips Bistro and Wine Shop
    The cooks at Sips Bistro and Wine Shop use locally acquired and organic ingredients where possible in their classic menu of small plates, varietals, and espresso drinks. The intimate bistro setting—rendered warm by colorful murals of pastoral settings and elegant wood wine racks—hosts guests as they try refined eats such as a chicken, brie, and caramelized onion quesadilla, or a brined and herb-crusted bone-in pork chop. During wine flights, vino sippers may choose their own drinks from a temperature-controlled wine bar or the frigid palms of a grape-eating sprite. The company also occasionally hosts events such as champagne Sundays and special tastings.

  • Michael's Pizza Bar and Grill
    Michael Calder began his pizza-making career in 1973, when he learned how to shape authentic crusts while working at an Italian family’s pizzeria. He put his pizza-crafting expertise to work at his own place when he opened Michael’s Pizza Bar and Grill, where the kitchen prepares specialty pies such as the meat-stacked Michael’s Masterpiece. The vegetarian Green Machine comes adorned with pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, and fresh garlic, while Heart Attack Dogs arrive at tables wrapped in bacon, crowned with cream cheese and honey, and accompanied by ominous organ music. Bartenders can mix dessertinis infused with espresso to follow hearty meals.
