Crimson hues edged in accents of neon orange and ice blue pervade the interior of Lava Lounge. Amid the low lights and bleeding colors, guests lounge on long benches and pull from long hookah hoses. Their exhalations send out swirls of smoke in flavors such as white peach, watermelon, or dominican mango. Between puffs, parties can sip bubbly Blue Moons and Stellas or make a night of it with bottle service. Bartenders also mix long island iced teas, cosmopolitans, and other cocktails behind a bar whose fuchsia lights transition into sky blue.
Tall grasses line the walls behind Lava Lounge's black couches, giving some of the smoking area a more pastoral feel. Patrons can also melt into one of Lava Lounge’s auto-massage chairs, pulling from a hookah while the chair kneads away muscle strains caused by relaxing too hard.
From its roots in a family kitchen, Mi Casa Cake Pops' mail-order business boomed along with demand for its colorful, sweet, handmade cake pops.

Sweet treats delight children and adults alike with shapes such as beloved children's show characters, babies, and vice-presidential candidates of the 19th century.

At Osteria Italiana, no detail is small enough to escape the team's attention, not even the height of the Caprese salad: it's served as a carefully balanced tower of alternating tomato and mozzarella slices drizzled in balsamic vinaigrette. The detail-oriented eye behind that appetizer?and the restaurant's other Italian classics?belongs to Chef Michael Zampitelli, previously of La Tavernetta. His vision is also evident in dishes such as linguine with calamari and the shrimp risotto, in which fish and rice strike a delicate balance just like they did back in the ocean. His sensibility even shines in simpler lunchtime paninis such as the grilled chicken, mozzarella, and shallot vinaigrette, a favorite he brought over from La Tavernetta.
Chefs at Drunken Fish Sushi Lounge adorn sushi rolls with white blossoms and shape green wasabi into clean-edged leaves on the edge of white plates. In their signature sushi entrees, chefs take artistic liberties with familiar sushi forms, combining fresh mango with lobster salad and avocado to form bold, flavorful rolls. Inside the kitchen, flames lick crispy sea bass and red-snapper entrees before they head out to tables to join plates of desserts such as mochi ice cream, banana tempura, or fried plates.
