Marble floors and stone statues highlight the decor inside La Casa Pasta, but customers might be too entranced by the aromas of freshly baked bread and homemade sauces to notice the elegant space first. Chef and owner Giuseppe Martuscelli created a menu that pays homage to his hometown of Santa Maria Di Castellabate?near Salerno, Italy?with a mix of both Northern and Southern Italian culinary traditions. So as not to lose touch with his Italian roots and cooking inspirations, Giuseppe journeys back to Italy each year, returning with new recipes and ingredients. Throughout the week, the eatery also entices guests with brick-oven pizza and wine specials, along with happy hour each evening.

El Jefe Restaurant & Mexican Grill's owner has a succinct way of describing a robust menu: "Plenty of options for anyone," he says. He does, however, provide some guidance to navigate the multipage treatise on authentic Mexican fare. He recommends the dishes that incorporate seafood, such as the house specialty Burrito El Jefe. The mammoth burrito wraps up shrimp, onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers beneath a blanket of melted cheese and tomato sauce, garnished with pineapple pico de gallo to complement the savory flavors. To spice up conversations, the bartenders mix a variety of margaritas, and sangrias, which guests are encouraged to splash into the face of anyone whom they suspect may have tastebuds on their nose.

In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches, which dining companions can wash down with fruit smoothies.

At Oasis Restaurant’s sunlit, yellow-hued café, the aroma of simmering lamb and sizzling falafel drifts through the dining room and breaches the borders of the adjacent market and halal butcher shop. Chefs procure fresh cuts of the 100% halal meat from next door to prepare from-scratch Lebanese, Egyptian, and Moroccan delicacies for individual orders or the bountiful weekend buffet. Though Middle Eastern classics such as grape leaves and hummus abound, chefs also pay homage to less prevalent delicacies, such as molokhia, a thick broth made from mallow leaves simmered in garlic. Once diners have finished chewing in unison, they can peruse the adjacent grocery store for imported groceries and fresh goat and lamb.
