On the shores of Sheepshead Bay, the chefs at Baku Palace delight palates with a menu of Turkish and Russian cuisine kept afloat by a supermassive vodka list. Servers ferry plates of seafood such as boiled lobster, entrees including fried trout, sheep's tongue, and grilled filet mignon, and kebabs out to eager patrons, and live music compels forks to shovel food in rhythmic unison. The eatery's regal chandeliers—which were designed in the Czech Republic—elegant patterned wallpaper, and ornate catering displays facilitate birthday celebrations, corporate events, and lavish surprise parties for the parking valet.
The light strumming of flamenco guitar accompanies pitchers of sangria and sizzling platters of paella at Euzkadi, a Michelin Guide –recommended Basque restaurant. Diffuse lighting illuminates small plates of tapas such as Spanish olives and salmon a la plancha as nimble waiters carry them through the rustic, wine-cellar-like space. Glasses of red riojas, sparkling cavas, and after-dinner ports float in from behind the full bar or hop off the sturdy wood beams that hold the bottles out at a 90-degree angle. The restaurant's exposed bricks and soft lighting, further darkened with thick, velvet drapes, lead up to a ceiling of primitive drawings of hunters, buffalo, and motocross races designed to mimic the cave drawings in the Basque region of northern Spain.

Seafaring hungerers can reel in an order of Sicilian calamari, which tosses sautéed squid with peppers, kalamata olives, garlic, and spices ($8.95), while meat seekers can load forks with veal asiago, with sautéed sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, and asparagus all cavorting in an amarsala wine sauce ($15.99). Bella also offers tailor-made meals, such as pasta dinners offering a choice of four pasta types, four sauces, and three meat offerings, ($9.95), which can be customized to suit a variety of tastes and font preferences.
There's something about the French Quarter that reminds Jimi of a movie. It's distinctive and recognizable, like the set of a classic film. His partner, Mina, is drawn to it for more obvious reasons: she's originally from Paris. The two of them created 1682 French Louisiana as an homage to their beloved city of New Orleans. And it's easy to see the resemblance. The exposed-brick walls recall the sidewalks that wind past French Quarter establishments like Arnaud's French 75, and the swirling piano keys drawn on the chalkboard bring to mind the jazzy riffs tinkling their way around Bourbon Street corners.
And that's exactly Jimi and Mina's intention: when you approach 1682, they want you to leave the streets of New York and step into a New Orleans state of mind. To that end, their all-day menu starts with strawberry beignets and cafe au lait before transitioning to muffalettas and seafood gumbo. Fridays feel especially transformative thanks to jazz musicians that play during dinner, or as some people call it, Lunch: The Reckoning.
Dolce Vita enchants jet-setters and homebodies alike with a where's-where menu of global recipes, a polyglot wine list, and a fully-stocked bar that keeps its stools open late, until all thirsts are sufficiently quenched. Launch your taste tour with the thai shrimp and scallop appetizer soaking in a red curry sauce ($13). The D.V. Chicken ($16), a bone-in bird with a belly full of fresh mozzarella, roma tomatoes, and basil, descends from the heavens into a cozy bed of tomato polenta and parmesan bread crumbs with a basil cream blanket. Daredevil palates plummet chopper-first into Dolce Vita's international menu with the jamaican jerk rack of lamb ($24) hovering over yellow curry couscous and grilled asparagus. Meanwhile, wines (ranging from $21–$100 per bottle) from as far as New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and Chile vie good-naturedly against homegrown spirits for a spot at the table, each promising its own distinct flavor and keychain souvenir from the motherland.
