The cooks at Grille Two 74 maintain a delicate balance between speed and quality. Working quickly, they make all food to order, including half-pound burgers, hearty chili, and grilled chicken sandwiches with homemade chipotle mayo. These eats are served in a sleek, industrial space with exposed brick walls, metal chairs, and track lighting sending out beams in red, blue, and magenta.

Riverside Manor’s cooks craft a menu of upscale Italian dishes, each served to diners in a renovated nineteenth-century silk mill. Just as a trip to the bookie precedes little-league baseball games, so too must first courses such as chicken wings ($7) or clams oreganata ($8 lunch, $10 dinner) clear the way for a festive entrée. Classic dishes such as rigatoni alla vodka ($10 lunch, $12 dinner) and fettuccini carbonara ($12 lunch, $14 dinner) share space with more exotic fare, including a 10-oz. raw filet mignon served on a 750-degree volcanic stone ($24). A lineup of brick-oven pizzas teaches guests that, unlike pi, pies end, and libations such as red ($5–$13) and white ($5–$12) wines, domestic ($4) and imported ($5) beers, and martinis ($7–$11) accompany the succulent eats.

With its sloped roof and grand clock tower, Orale Mexican Bistro's facade doesn't fit the bill for a typical Mexican restaurant. But beyond its front doors, chefs cook open-faced chipotle shrimp quesadillas by the heat of a wood-fired brick oven, and they stuff tacos with slow-cooked carnitas. Servers shuttle these south of the border entrees to candlelit tables in the dining room or to an outdoor patio perched beneath the clock tower, which transforms back into a lowly wristwatch at the stroke of midnight. On select evenings, DJs spin house and latinbeat tunes while patrons enjoy specials on margaritas and mixed drinks.

Delicate, crispy crepe edges give way to a tender pastry center. Each paper-thin bite reveals a hidden filling such as lemon and sugar, nutella, or italian sausage. Le Cafe Creperie’s chefs have perfected their art with a five-step process: patrons can watch as cooks pour, spin, and flip their crepe, fill it with sweet or savory ingredients, then fold it to trap in the luscious flavors. Beyond crepes, Le Cafe also serves their own flatbread creations, "nanzzas." These unique pizzas are made with a foundation of Tandoori-naan flatbread and come baked in nine varieties such as pesto basil, spinach and chicken, chicken asiago, Mediterrranean, and tomato basil.
