At Match, the cuisine world's curious couple—Korean barbecue and tapas—are united in menu matrimony. Chilly nibbles from Spain, Korea, France, and Hong Kong pepper the cosmopolitan tapas menu. Try seared tuna or salmon with spicy garlic sauce ($6), Spanish olives ($3), or pork belly with chef's sauce and garlic ($5). Fans of fried fare will appreciate the Belgium-based frites with choice of dipping sauce (mayo, aioli, or sauce andalouse, $3), Singaporean dragon balls (spicy battered bits of tuna, chopped onion, and peppers served with eel sauce, $3.50), and cheese wontons ($3). Or, keep it simple with a cheese plate with three Spanish, French, or American selections ($12).
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, all grilled to order. 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.
Almaza Hookah Lounge Restaurant’s chefs marinate filet kebabs in their special blend of spices, bake salmon with sautéed spinach and fresh cream, and wrap chicken with garlic sauce in sage pitas. The aromas of the Mediterranean spices waft from the kitchen to the dining area. Flickering votive candles please visual senses, and the clinking of cocktail glasses from the full bar signals to the ears that it’s either time to drink up or that a flock of crystal doves is flying into the window. The team rents out hookahs at the hookah bar, and they welcome clients to dance the night away while DJs spin the latest hits.
New Day Cafe treats its patrons to good old-fashioned American diner food. Kick off your day with made-to-order omelets, short-stack pancakes, or a hearty two-egg breakfast to prepare for another round of meetings about adding more meetings to the day. For lunch, there's bacon cheeseburgers, tuna melts, and homemade chicken tortilla soup.
The skilled chefs at Demarco's Italian Restaurant blend old-world and new-world Italian cuisine to create decadent pastas and brick-oven pizzas. Diners stretch gooey mozzarella long enough to play cat's cradle with it after biting into a small New York–style pizza ($6.95+), artfully smattered with toppings such as fresh tomatoes, artichokes, or sausage ($0.75 each). Layers of al dente pasta, cheese, and house-made sauce stack up into a rich lasagna ($12.95), crowned with a choice of vodka, marinara, or alfredo sauce, and served with a choice of soup or salad. For unsatisfied sweet teeth, Demarco's scoops up a selection of authentic gelato, dripping with enough creamy flavor to send your home ice-cream maker to the malt shop in the sky.
