Capital Buffet draws on spices, cooking methods, and ingredients from diverse regions of the south to assemble a smorgasbord of classic American cooking. It fills trays with dishes such as New Orleans–style jambalaya and southern barbecue chicken. The cooks at Capital Buffet can also cater their hearty dishes for lunches, meetings, and intimate competitive-eating contests.
The crispy tempura batter keeps tuna, whitefish, and shrimp hidden inside Pho and Japanese Steak House’s many sushi rolls. The chefs also conceal a cut of filet mignon and veggies underneath a thick teriyaki glaze and submerge beefy bites inside of a bowl of pho tai noodle soup. Even the eatery’s dessert offers a hidden surprise with fried ice cream.
In 2012, Enso Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar won two OpenTable Diner's Choice awards for its chic decor and the vibrant mood set by DJs spinning modern electronic music. Chefs sate crowds with creative pan-Asian cuisine such as Asian yellowtail ceviche with wonton chips, sushi rolls that pair blue crab with sliced strawberries or microgreens, and entrees of seared Chilean sea bass served with dollops of edamame mashed potatoes. Bartenders mix top-shelf cocktails at a glittering bar lined with black pebbles.
Owner Garmon Moore and the team of chefs at Hole in the Wall Crab Shack pile plates high with in-the-shell blue crab legs and crab cakes made with lump meat, brought in from the Carolina coast weekly. House-made lemonade washes down tender helpings of made-to-order fare, including garlic crabs, tilapia sandwiches, and sides of hushpuppies.
Hot pot soups brimming with ingredients such as chicken and chinese herb wine sizzle at the center of the table, enticing diners to cook their own morsels of seafood, meat, and veggies by dipping them into the spicy chicken broth. Hot pot is one of The Dynasty Cuisine’s specialties, but the Chinese eatery’s expert chefs render further DIY cooking obsolete. Executive chef and owner Joe Lam, who has been concocting Chinese eats for the past 25 years, relishes in creating dishes that pair contrasting flavors and textures, such as delicate cellophane noodles intertwined with tender meats. Meanwhile, dim sum chef Eddy Zhang, who has experience working at six-star Chinese hotels, concocts bite-size shrimp dumplings and fried shrimp balls, both of which offer a refreshing alternative to the American tradition of swallowing steaks whole.
Though the Great Wall of China may win the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Thailand, built to reach any itchy corner across the vast, narrow expanse of the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand.
