Most flavors fall within the range of 30?40 calories per ounce, with dairy-free options and no-sugar-added concoctions also available.

A toppings bar allows eaters to further customize yogurt creations with a spoonful of fresh fruits or a sprinkling of nuts. The flavors contain ample amounts of probiotics, known for potential health benefits that may include strengthening immune systems and lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.

The soothing sounds of the saxophone and the call of the trumpet fill the air inside the Red Cat Jazz Caf?. Several nights a week, artists such as Brian Best and Dean James play on the caf?'s stage, which also hosts boisterous events including the Sunday Jazz Brunch. Open-mic nights let lesser-known acts make a splash, and happy hours and special events encourage artistic expression through words, mixed drinks, and opportunities to complain about coworkers in song.

With parents hailing from Sicily and Naples, Anthony Russo enjoyed an Italian upbringing. By age 12, he spent much of his time in the kitchen, learning to prepare Old World recipes with his family and family friends. And from the flurry of Italian phrases and conversation, one quote of his father's stuck with him most: "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!"

Several decades later, Anthony has hand-tossed his own Italian restaurant franchise and, true to his father's words, employs fresh ingredients in the same family recipes that were passed down to him. Amid exposed brick and walls the warm hue of marinara, skilled chefs craft New York–style brick-oven pizzas with toppings such as spinach, sundried tomatoes, and capers. Servers stand ready to answer questions about the restaurant’s wine lists, letting guests know which wines pair best with the Pizzotto sandwich or whether pinot noir can really turn dogs invisible.

If you believe that variety is the spice of life, you can get a nice dose of it at David's Fine Meats & Grill, where savory cuts of meat—such as prime beef and other high-quality proteins—are proudly displayed in their meat market. Alongside these traditional cuts, the market also stocks such wild-game offerings as alligator, python, and kangaroo steaks. Owners David and Cristi Cruz make a point to feature both traditional and exotic cuts of meat in their full-service butcher shop and gourmet food store, and the cuts come prepared in myriad ways.

The grill, which opens for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner, prepares dine-in or take-out meals to guests' liking. At the butcher shop, skilled Old World-style meat-cutters can slice up roasts and provide fresh, unprocessed meat—including Wagyu and prime cuts of beef, elk, ostrich, and rabbit—or add all sorts of other ingredients and spices to make ready-to-serve kabobs, tamales, and even suckling pigs. They then butcher-wrap these cuts for take-home meals, supplemented by their own brands of spice rubs, jams, salsas, barbecue sauces, and specialty seasonings. With advance notice, the shop can also process deer, dove, quail, and other wild game by request. For guests who can't wait to eat at home, it's possible to enjoy any cut of meat cooked-to-order at the grill. You can also cap off any meal by adding on some berry tarts or chocolate-covered bacon.

At River Place Country Club, a championship golf course designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Kite, winner of the 1992 U.S. Open, invites golfers to launch balls over sand bunkers and twisting creeks that wend their way through the landscape’s hilly contours. The course’s superintendent draws on experience at Baton Rouge Country Club and Colonial Country Club, as well as a degree in Plant and Soil Systems, as he ensures that the greens and rolling Bermuda grass fairways are more carefully manicured than a prize-winning pet wooly mammoth. The course’s PGA professional instructors are on hand to improve individual games, and a driving range lets players practice at 15 hitting stations.

Adjacent to the course, eight lighted tennis courts abut a 40,000-square-foot clubhouse with an outdoor pool, fully equipped fitness center, and locker rooms whose dry saunas and whirlpools melt tension quicker than butter melts on the calves of a sprinter. The Grille invites clubgoers to sup on steak or seafood, and a pair of outdoor decks let guests drink in scenic views.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,611 yards
  • Course rating of 72.0
  • Slope rating of 128

Papa Murphy's Take 'n' Bake Pizza was born out of the owner's frustration with bad pizza from chains, which often tasted as if every ingredient was canned or frozen. Deciding to change the industry, Papa Murphy's tosses every ingredient, all of which are never frozen, onto the crust in front of the customer's eyes and sends them home to bake in a home oven. This dedication to fresh flavor earned Papa Murphy's the top spot on Zagat's National Chain survey.

Visitors can create their own take on the pizza pie or chomp into one of their signature pizzas, which range from meat-filled stuffed crust to calorie-conscious lite varieties covered in vegetables. Their appetizers and desserts follow the same pattern. Customers order raw cookie dough or cheesy bread ripe for the baking, resulting in every course being fresh from the oven.
