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.

Urban Cantina’s chefs create a big menu packed with Mexican favorites.

For a lighter meal, the chefs create “skinny” options such as salads, tacos with grilled chicken and low-fat corn tortillas, plus naked fajitas that come with no tortillas, no pants, and no shame.
Chillounge Night moves the atmosphere of a nightclub outdoors, freeing warm pulses of bass to tremble under the stars and roll beneath the chatter of guests perched on plush sofas.

Samba dancers parade past tables laden with signature dishes from local restaurants, and fashion shows parade intriguing threads. As fireworks crackle against the darkening sky at some events, live music begins to fuel dancing or make metronomes feel more comfortable.
Formerly known as Morae’s Cafe, Persia House of Kebabs treats patrons to grilled kebabs and fresh sandwiches with Middle-Eastern panache.
