Chefs infuse robust flavors into hand-tossed pizza, piquant pasta, and other traditional Italian entrees on The Grotto Restaurant’s extensive lunch and dinner menus. In the pomodoro pasta fini pasta splashes in a sea of freshly diced tomatoes, feta cheese, and fragrant basil alongside freshly baked bread ($13.99). The Sonny's signature, gourmet crab-cakes dish soaks jumbo lumps of white crab meat in a lagoon of cream sherry sauce ($24.99). The culinary crew also hand-tosses 12-inch pizzas ($11.99–$12.99) topped with sausage, feta cheese, mushrooms, and other savories to round off the menu's savory selection and incite envy in neglected baseballs.
During the last three decades, Charley’s has shuffled up standard decks of carbs in a fresh, innovative fashion. Though the soul of Charley’s spawns from the beefy abyss of the signature cheesesteak sandwiches ($4.59–$8.99), the entire menu is flavorfully filled to capacity with delicious grilled combinations (prices vary by location). The chicken teriyaki sandwich ($4.89–$9.29) is quaint for a stomach sublet, while the Italian deli deluxe carnivorously conquers with a bed of pepperoni, ham, turkey, provolone, and generous dustings of Italian seasoning ($4.59–$8.99). Diners can load their gastronomic cargo-carriers with a combo meal, complete with Charley's famously crisp fries ($1.79–$1.89 for a regular order), or ascend a mountain of abominably coated fries featuring cheddar, ranch, and bacon
Frankie I’s artisan pub fare steams beneath 12 big-screen televisions and vibrates with live tunes emanating from a cavernous loft stage. Signature dishes lend a gourmet John Hancock to traditional pub cuisine with entrees such as the Greek-style stuffed salmon florentine, comprising a freshly caught Atlantic salmon fillet packed with spinach, spices, and feta atop wild rice and crinkly parchment ($16.95). Other proteins include the homestyle baked pork chop with sausage and sage stuffing ($12.95), as well as the 24-ounce bone-in rib eye, cut by hand and topped with caramelized onions and mushrooms ($27.95). Diners may also savor the fried-shrimp platter, which chefs bread and haul from the deep fryer to bathe in house-made tartar and cocktail sauces ($15.95).
Libras's proprietor, Diana DiBridge Robosky, serves up a satisfying menu of breakfasts, salads, and sandwiches. Red-potato hash, cheese, and meat crown the cheesy omelet bowl ($6), and the grilled veggie sandwich on ciabatta ($8) holds more produce than Peter Rabbit's crisper drawer. Traditional caesar salad comes topped with house-made garlic croutons and fresh ground pepper ($5), and florets and pasta mingle in the broccoli-tortellini salad ($6).
