Inside the kitchen at Riverside Manor is a staff that knows how to bring the best out of their Atlantic-harvested ingredients and Italian cooking methods. Fresh, homemade pastas envelop pumpkin ravioli and serve as pillows for shrimp and scallops. Filet mignon tops bruschetta or stars in an entr?e of its own. And eight brick-oven pizzas come strewn with four cheeses, spinach and feta, or crispy buffalo chicken. And to accommodate as many patrons as possible, the cooks prepare a whole-wheat penne primavera along with an entire menu of gluten-free dishes.

But perhaps it?s the building itself that best represents an elegant fusing of old and new. On the site of what was once a 19th-century silk mill, the doors now open into a scene that could fool you into thinking you just passed through a wormhole to Tuscany. Along with hand-carved wooden furnishings and ornamental ironwork, brick archways and painted trompe l?oeils bring a playfulness to the space, which doubles as a frequent host for weddings and other special events.

It's inconvenient to crave those buttery pretzels they sell at the mall because, well, you can only drive to the mall to get them. Or write yourself a mental IOU to snag one next time you need to go shoe shopping.

Hope Moran opted to work around this inconvenience: She instead headed to her own kitchen, where she experimented with various ingredients until she perfected her very own recipe. She modeled her morsels after New York-style pretzels, but also wanted to give them a flaky softness reminiscent of European pastries or air-headed teddy bears. After being assured by friends and family that her creations were, in fact, quite delicious, she decided to open her very own pretzel place.

Today, at Le Bretzel, she has created a variety gourmet-inspired pretzels. Some are sweet—as with the cinnamon raisin—and some are savory, such as the spicy jalapeno pretzel. If you're looking for more than a snack, opt for stuffed pretzels—a sugar-sprinkled version conceals a cache of raspberry, pomegranate, and brie, and the chipotle-spiced pretzel is packed with bacon and cheddar. The eatery uses Hope's original homemade recipes, which feature all-natural ingredients.

Like a dream about a baseball game, pretzels reappear throughout the menu: as buns for burgers and sliders, the dough for cheesesteak pizzas, and as rolls for sandwiches such as the Wiggins with turkey, stuffing, and cranberry aioli. Hope and her team also prepare a handful of (pretzel-free) appetizers, including clams steamed with shallots, garlic, prosciutto, and white wine.

Pasquale’s Ristorante Italiano crafts house-made pastas, entrees, and decadent desserts for an elegant, old-world menu of Italian favorites. A clutch of pan-seared scallops and shrimp spill over an umami-laden porcini risotto ($20.95) like a gift from a mermaid secret admirer left on the shore, and boneless short ribs with a port-wine glaze recline on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes ($20.95). Light-as-air gnocchi hopscotch through bolognese sauce studded with mascarpone cheese squares ($13.95). A slice of Nonna’s cheesecake, finished with raspberry puree, puts a ricotta exclamation point at the end of savory meals. Homey floral arrangements and warm, golden walls meet sleek booths and a streamlined full bar in Pasquale's dining room, suiting moods ranging from casual to extravagant. Reservations are recommended.

The first decision to make at Nino's Coal Fired Pizza is an important one: to share, or not to share? The coal-fired pies come in an individual size or a larger 16-inch ideal for sharing. From there, the decision-making process becomes even more agonizing (in the good way), with creative specialty pies topped with everything from meatballs and cheesesteak to, yes, traditional cheese. Whole-wheat and gluten-free crusts are available, and certain pizzas are sold by the slice throughout the day. None of which is to say that Nino's is exclusively about pizza; the menu also includes homemade pasta dishes, steak and seafood entrees, and hot sandwiches.
