The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
The kitchen staff at Sweet Basil Restaurant combines Italian classics and East Coast culinary traditions to create the offerings on its extensive menus. In addition to everyday lunches and dinners, the owners host weddings and banquets and team up with Saratoga Comedy Club to bring their diners live shows every Saturday night. Between laughs, diners indulge in lightly breaded chicken parmigiana, broiled Atlantic salmon in a white-wine sauce, and slow-roasted prime rib.
Mustache Joe's, named for the man?and the mustache?who founded the restaurant, is a casual and comfortable spot for a business lunch or special evening meal. From the menu, chefs plate familiar classics, starting off with colorful and fresh caprese salads before transitioning to larger, heartier plates of their signature seafood linguine, tossed with shrimp, scallops, and lobster meat. During lunch, guests can head up to the counter for a quick, easy meal of pasta, panini, or a small personal pizza.
