Alongside its Mediterranean platters, Jordan Valley Restaurant serves up ample hospitality. The restaurant strives to be a social space where friends and new acquaintances can mingle amongst Middle Eastern spices, or chat on the porch over hookahs. The kitchen’s staples include kebabs, gyros, and a variety of pitas filled with kafta, tandoori chicken, or meatballs.
Beachy colors and Caribbean flags set a tropical scene inside Island Kitchen, an eatery that serves up the flavorful foods from Jamaica and other island nations. Fall-off-the-bone jerk chicken, oxtail, and goat curry are a few specialties, and sides, such as sweet plantains and yellow rice, round out meals. For vegetarian diners, the spot's chefs prepare jerk vegetables, curry cabbage, and other meat-free offerings.
The culinary artisans at Miguel's Authentic Mexican Cuisine dish up a multifarious menu of both authentic and American-inspired Mexican cuisine. Quash the complaints of a demanding belly with an imperious order of nachos grande ($7.50) or guacamole ($4.75), then break the resulting silence with a signature puff taco buzzing with beef, beans, or chicken slathered in salsa and cheese ($5.25–$6.75). Steaming beef, shrimp, or chicken fajitas ($11.95) saunter into exclusive mouth parties with an escort of grilled vegetable sycophants. Dishes such as the 8-ounce taco burger ($3.75) and taco pizza ($6.75) combine classic American and Mexican innovations with results that would shame any mariachi boy band. Match the meal with a refreshing lime margarita ($2.99 for a small) or icy imported brew ($2.95).
Sunny yellow walls and park benches frame the entryway of CJ’s Kitchen & Grille, giving the cozy eatery the feel of a small, Southern town. Inside, baskets of fried fish and gulf shrimp, and platters of smothered pork chops and country-fried steak keep the Southern ambiance alive. A friendly wait staff shuffles fresh-made breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare from table to table, sating appetites with crab cakes, housemade tartar sauce, and hush puppies. Early-rising taste buds awaken from dreams about licking the surface of the moon to devour eggs paired with hash browns, grits, and andouille sausage, or to dive into homemade french toast made from Gambino's New Orleans' french bread.
