Café Corleone's cooks transport the rich culinary landscape of Sicily to the United States through mouthwatering Italian pizzas, pastas, and desserts served in a warmly lit space. Head chef Alongi dazzles taste buds with a menu of seafood, steaks, and flavorful sauces made from seasonal ingredients. Inside, pictures of old Italy pepper the walls and tables frame house-made pizzas and elegant desserts with a dressy-casual outfit of checkered tablecloth. In addition to enrapturing palates with plates of fresh Sicilian fare, Café Corleone keeps eardrums entertained with live music from Ron Nardo and Terry Anfuso, who delight audiences each Saturday night with their renditions of jazz standards, Rat Pack hits, and dubsteb remixes of The Sound of Music soundtrack.

Picoso Mexican Grill’s eight-entree menu is as no-frills as their mission—to serve fresh, authentic Mexican food. The kitchen executes this goal by charbroiling meats such as carne asada, chicken, and chorizo to juicy perfection before stuffing them into tacos and burritos. Crema fresca drizzles the torta—a Mexican-style sandwich on telera bread—and the eatery’s interpretation of nachos, dubbed simply “chips and meat,” lounges on a bed of lime-infused tortilla chips. Imported Jarritos sodas and horchata, a rice drink made with cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla, cool off a spice-coated tongue more effectively than sticking it out of a car window.
