Rosinha's Restaurant staffers stay up late into the evening to summon elegant presentations of Portuguese and Cape Verdean seafood dishes and frequently cater special events and weddings. Piscatorial dishes range from less-common options, including stewed octopus and swordfish designed to replicate Captain Ahab's actual sword, to traditional shrimp in curry sauce or stuffed lobster. Meat entrees such as filet mignon and barbecued ribs complete the dinner menu, and lunchtime heralds daytime dishes bearing Portuguese-style meats including omelets and sandwiches, which disappear, like the reliability of sundials, when the sun goes down.
Hose Company No. 6's menu sends plates of Italian, American, and seafood favorites sailing amid the exposed brick walls, brass nozzles, and original fire pole of a 19th-century fire station. Parmigiana sandwiches cuddle chicken, veal, and eggplant ($6.99–$7.49) in their crispy, savory grasp with equal aplomb. Chefs grill 12-ounce rib-eye steaks ($14.99) to order, delicately preparing rare cuts or adding an extra pat on the back to well-done versions, and the Fisherman's Plate ($17.49) drowns hunger pangs in a flotilla of scallops, shrimp, fries, and onion rings. Twenty-four-ounce margaritas ($9) lead an expansive charge of wines and beers ready to accompany dishes on voyages of self-discovery.
Pho Horn's blends traditional fare from Vietnam's northern and southern regions with Chinese and French influences in an eclectic, expansive menu. A Vietnamese crepe ($8.95) folds a classic mixture of shrimp, pork, and bean sprouts into a rice-powder pancake, and rice swims in a sea of ginger, scallions, cilantro, and either beef, chicken, or pork in the chao rice chowder ($6.95–$7.95). Hand-rolled at the table in softened rice paper, banh hoi steamed vermicelli ($11.95–$12.95) wraps up mint, lettuce, roasted peanuts, scallions, and vermicelli noodles with a choice of grilled shrimp, pork, beef sirloin, or chicken. In addition to a variety of beef-broth pho soups ($6.95–$8.95), midday munchers can enjoy lunch specials ranging from chicken fried rice to beef sautéed with lemon-grass sauce and tofu sautéed with broccoli ($6.95 each). After spicy meals, which help to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at co-ed canoe camp, diners can cool off with bubble tea ($3.50) in flavors such as honey dew and lychee, as well as imported beers and cocktails.
In Wolof, Senegal’s most widely spoken language, the word “bayal” means “meeting place.” This is an apt description of the goals of Bayal Restaurant’s Senegalese owners, who strive to make their eatery a meeting place for the different cuisines they encountered while moving around Africa and Europe. There, they serve the Senegalese, Togolese, Beninese, Malian, Ivorian, and Mediterranean recipes that they loved best, both in lunch and dinner buffets and by the plate.
Using fresh ingredients, the chefs prepare an eclectic mix of dishes as richly colored as the dining room’s pumpkin-hued walls. They stew lamb with various fixings, including sweet potatoes, cabbage, and a groundnut sauce. They spoon herb-stuffed whitefish in a tomato stew over a choice of jasmine rice or really tender forks. And for the dinnertime buffet, they add in a few signature dishes, such as rack of lamb and cornish hen. Desserts end meals with sweet tastes such as couscous pudding with tropical fruits and beignets sprinkled with orange-flower water.
Not only does the Boundary Brewhouse serve up a treasure trove of delicious craft beers, but it also delivers a menu full of hearty pub fare, from fish 'n' chips and fried chicken to the signature handmade gourmet burgers. Live bands play blues and classic-rock jams as guests sip brews and sink their teeth into beef tips slathered in housemade bourbon barbecue sauce, hand-cut fries, and stuffed quahogs cooked from the chef's family recipe.
