Zambur Bar & Grill's masterful menu makers welcome visitors by handing them plates filled with kebabs, seafood, pub fare, and more. Begin the tasting session with sambosa, a puffy pastry indwelt by spicy potato eats ($4.95). Or, promise your mouth hot wings ($5.95), but then surprise it instead with battered crab cakes ($6.95) paired with a frothy brew from Zambur's full bar.
Hookahs are designed with hanging out in mind: the slowly-burning patty encourages users to sit and chat for a while as they draw slow breaths. Wicked Mirage's comfortable atmosphere, therefore, is the perfect complement to its ornate water pipes. With weekly poetry readings and frequent game-watching sessions, the lounge's calendar seems to have something for everyone?though many just opt for a simple night with friends or a complicated night with enemies. When it's time to inhale, patrons consult a 70-flavor shisha menu. Its varieties include classic smoke flavors, like jasmine and lemon-mint, as well as more inventive blends, like Wicked Candy's sorbet melon and "Pirate's Cove."
