Like any great Italian meal, made-from-scratch dishes at Spaghetti Warehouse are created from family recipes passed down for generations. Using fresh ingredients ranging from ricotta, romano, and mozzarella cheeses to house-made tomato sauce and Italian sausage, chefs labor for up to three days to prepare batches of their 15-layer signature lasagna from scratch. The menu also offers perfectly al dente pasta, bottomless soups, and 12-layer chocolate cakes to share with family and friends.

It’s that feeling of togetherness that people love about Spaghetti Warehouse, a feeling that is only enhanced when the drinks start flowing and the air is punctuated by the sounds of laughter as kids play retro games, such as The Claw prize-grabbing machine. To reach their table, guests commonly have to step through two doors: the front door of the restaurant and the door of the antique trolley parked inside. Since its inception in 1972, the Italian eatery has merged the functions of kitchen and museum. Artifacts such as grandfather clocks, factory flywheels, and circus billboards surround diners as they delve into Italian creations.

In 1975, when The Melting Pot originally opened just outside Orlando, diners had just three options: swiss-cheese fondue, beef fondue, or chocolate fondue. The restaurant first expanded four years later, when an enterprising waiter by the name of Mark Johnston opened up a new outpost in Tallahassee. Today, The Melting Pot—now owned by Mark and his brothers Mike and Bob—reigns as a premier fondue, wine, and drink restaurant, stretching across North America with more than 140 restaurants linked by underground tunnels. The restaurant's menu has also expanded, and patrons can now expect six varieties of hot dipping cheese paired with salads, meats, and molten chocolate.

On any given night, groups of dip-loving foodies gather around tables to nosh on fondue appetizers before cooking their steaks and seafood in a choice of healthy broth or oil. Birthday revelers and romance seekers cap decadent evenings sharing the chocolate desserts that have defined The Melting Pot for decades.

Bombay Chaat Corner stands as a culinary crossroads that connects the myriad roads of India. Here, chefs prepare dishes called chaat that are typically found at street-side stands and eaten as snacks. The menu is an amalgam of chaat from different regions, often garnished with an array of chutneys. Some items may be familiar to westerners, such as the ubiquitous samosa, stuffed with spiced potatoes and veggies. Then again, there's also the samosa chat, which is served in pieces, and the ragda samosa, which is accompanied by a hearty lentil soup. Sample the rice cakes in the idli sambhar's fiery stew for a taste of Southern India, or try a Mumbai staple, sev puri—crispy wafers topped with diced potatoes, onions, and crunchy noodles. If inspired to create their own chaat at home, guests can browse the shelves of the surrounding Indian supermarket for spices, produce, and guidebooks on how to hatch chickpeas.

In addition to piling plates with savory meals, Flavors Indian Cuisine often dishes out dulcet treats, such as honeyed spheres of gulab jamoon, to keep sweet teeth and sugar-craving taste buds from seceding from the mouth.

Flavors Indian Cuisine's charming décor peppers eyeballs with sparkling chandeliers, vine-covered wood screens, and vibrant colors. Amid displays of Indian statues and artwork, rich robes of mauve tastefully clothe tabletops, and saffron-hued walls coordinate their outfits with spiced rice plates.

DeJAVU Restaurant owner Gary Williams has learned a lot about food in more than 30 years as a chef, but one thing he never picked up is a formal culinary education. Instead, his Creole-themed menus build off his firsthand experience traveling the country from New Orleans to California to Miami. Take, for example, DeJAVU's alligator stew. Without ever consulting a recipe or a magical talking oven mitt, Williams paired sautéed gator tail meat with a house blend of Creole seasoning, giving the stew a character of its own with curry, French bell peppers, and onions. In addition to the Cajun favorites, DeJAVU's menu presents plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, such as pasta primavera sautéed in coconut milk for a main course and vegan carrot-raisin bread for dessert.
