La China Restaurant's vast and varied menu brims with classic Chinese recipes. Start off with savory potstickers or creamy crab rangoons, each packed into a paper-thin dough envelope perfect for stamping with sauce and mailed as a thank-you note to a loyal carrier pigeon. A wide range of meat-, noodle-, or seafood-based entrees also beckons diners—including the pecan shrimp, which drenches the crispy crustaceans in an ambrosial honey sauce. The five-flavor chicken lets tender poultry mingle with minced water chestnuts, mushrooms, and bamboo shoots in a signature sauce for an opus of tastes more harmonious than the Beatles' weekly potlucks. Beverages toe the line between domestic and imported tastes: wine selections range from California varietals to traditional sake and plum wine, and beer brands include Budweiser to Tsingtao.
San Diego locals Rick and Tiffany Trevino started Indigo Café in 2000 as a way to marry their two passions: Californian cuisine and the blues. Between blue walls covered in photos of blues and jazz musicians, they create their own mix of Cali-Cajun dishes such as bubba blue jambalaya and Cajun pesto pasta with Andouille sausage. Even their sandwiches bounce back and forth between Cajun and Californian flavors: shrimp po’ boys rest side by side with portabella mushroom sandwiches. Besides breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Indigo Café also cooks up catered meals and weekend brunch.
Chicago's Finest Cuisine packs a menu full of edibles inspired by Chicago, including Vienna Beef dogs, deep-dish pizzas with cornmeal crusts, and made-from-scratch bagels. Run by a couple of former Second City citizens, the eatery fills expectant mouths with Maxwell Street polish sausages ($3.99) and fried pork-chop sandwiches ($4.25), as well as vegetarian options such as the Edgie veggie sandwich ($4.50) packed with nine healthy fillings, or the meatless garden burger ($4.25). An authentic Chicago grilled skirt-steak sandwich with homemade fries ($6.99) convinces lunchers to linger and bellies to stop jabbering just to get attention. With more than 20 types of bagels made fresh daily, as well as muffins, omelettes, and cereals, breakfasters can also pop in to scare away a bad case of the morning-time hungries.
There are many important questions to ask before hosting a party: where will the guests sit? Do I need a tent? Is karaoke an appropriate choice for a wake? Platinum Party Rents quells such questions with its expansive catalog of rental equipment. Intimate get-togethers benefit from fine linens, tableware, and strands of lights, and larger soirees convene under expansive tents, complete with dance floors and event stages. The suppliers also stock less obvious items, such as fans, pyramid heaters, and fire pits for forging wedding rings just before the ceremony.
