Husband–and-wife team Andy and Allison Yoa have built their own tropical paradise at Island Grill, but that doesn't mean they get to spend all day sipping mai tais. In the kitchen, you'll find Andy busy frying hand-breaded flounder, sautéing housemade crab cakes, and preparing cedar-plank salmon in a spicy orange sauce. The island theme continues in Allison's territory: the front of the house. Wooden carved fish adorn the walls and dangle from the ceiling, and the tables are covered in a tropical pineapple print.

For those who want to take a piece of the island paradise home with them, the restaurant offers full-service catering that can include servers, bartenders, and dudes who do pretty good Jacques Cousteau impressions.

Steak 38 founder Joe DiAmore and fellow restaurateur Ben Blumberg began working together as teenagers, waiting tables at Chubby’s Restaurant in Collingswood. The two later opened their own establishments, with Joe manning the grill at Steak 38 and Ben dishing out undersea treats at Barnacle Ben’s. After more than 40 years, the epicurean duo has once again joined forces to combine their surf 'n' turf experience into a full menu of entrees seasoned with the world's most popular spice—fire. Many of Steak 38's signature dishes include tableside preparation, as waiters carve meats, debone fish, and ignite flaming desserts such as bananas foster before ringing the dinner bell. The restaurant’s intimate bar stocks its bins with toast-ready spirits, filling glasses with effervescent champagne, bracing scotch, and a selection of timeless after-dinner cordials.

El Sitio's chefs parade a vibrant menu of dishes from Ecuador, Peru, and Argentina across visiting palates. The lomo manchego, a grass-fed sirloin medallion stuffed and drizzled with manchego cheese ($26), is served on a stone plate designed to maintain warmth long enough for forks to tap out blissful sonnets in Morse code. Patrons can lick their plates clean after romping through staple dishes such as the sliced octopus covered in black-olive sauce ($9.25) or a sampler of empanadas, tequeños, and calamari ($11.50). Dine indoors beneath lime-green and marigold walls bathed in varietal lighting, or let the wind blow through your eyelashes while noshing on shrimp in an ivory mantle of coconut sauce ($17) on the patio. El Sitio's BYOB policy allows diners to bring along a bottle of wine, six-pack of beer, or bedazzled personal juicer.

Everything about Reserve exudes swank. Dark wood-paneled rooms and crimson curtains, more than 100 aged bourbons, and a cigar lounge—not to mention contributions from the menu such as organic steak and wild king salmon—work to redefine locals’ impressions of fine dining. Those morsels share tabletop space with entrees including roast duck breast and striped bass, the likes of which chefs lavish with seasonings such as pancetta butter, green peppercorn cream, and truffle chicken broth. The kitchen’s culinary artists also craft morsels of oyster and lobster at a raw bar whose offerings rival the bounty of Poseidon’s larder.

Reserve’s mixologists take over at the bar, where the restaurant’s cache of bourbons pour alongside a dozen draft beers, specialty cocktails, and an array of wines from the grapevines and bottle-growing bushes of California. While perched upon black leather stools amid corinthian pillars, guests also can listen to strands of live jazz as they take in everything.
