Honey-hued drapes span wall-to-wall windows. Polished silverware glimmers in the glow from dangling strings of lights and tiny wall sconces. Ristorante Pavarotti's Italian-born owner, Massimo, knows that little touches like this make a huge difference, whether you’re decorating a restaurant to create romantic ambiance or crafting authentic Italian cuisine. White tablecloths warm beneath veal and fresh seafood in red- and white-wine reductions, and other traditional dishes on the menu ramp up with gourmet ingredients such as artichokes, truffle oil, and pecorino cheese. Between bites of homemade fusilli or lobster and crab ravioli, guests can ask a server to suggest a bottle of wine to transport their senses to Italy, or a genie in a bottle to transport their physical bodies there.

In a bright space sparsely adorned with antique fishing equipment, Haven Seafood furnishes fresh oceanic fare for home-cooked meals or on-site savoring.

The Wine Shop of Reading prompts clients to ask themselves, "am I the next Sam Adams?" But not because they're helping found a nation, but because they're interested in brewing beer. Onsite, The Wine Shop staff works with visitors to not just sell them great beer, but show them how to craft a solid home brew with the skills, ingredients, and equipment to do so. Instructors also teach wine making, as well as bartending skills, which involves more than artfully draping a towel over one shoulder and coming up with punny cocktail names.

Café Jag's chefs cater to discerning palates with fresh-made Italian pastas, seafood, and grilled meats. Dining bands collaboratively scour the dinner menu before harmonizing their orders of appetizers such as the Maryland crab cakes, dunked in house-made rémoulade sauce. The grilled rack of lamb tickles taste buds with a french-cut slab of meat and accompanies veggies as they careen down digestive canals. As soft light spills across multihued paintings and light cocoa ceilings, chefs house ocean-torn savories in the lobster ravioli, decorating pasta walls with a sherry-cream reduction and ricotta padding. An ever-rotating selection of desserts, including an oft-available five-layer red-velvet-and-chocolate-lava cake, coddles teeth with the sweet softness of a cloud of gummy bears.

Wedging rich deli meats and cheeses between 13 types of bread, the helpful staff at Gloria Food Store curbs appetites with a menu of sandwiches, burgers, and gourmet Italian specialties. Behind the deli counter, staffers assemble the turkey carver sandwich ($6), which preempts regularly scheduled Thanksgiving with roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy atop marble rye. In addition to nestling hot and cold deli meats inside rolls, wraps, and focaccia, the staff mixes up greens, protein, and veggies in gourmet salads such as the ginger-chicken salad with noodles and mango salsa ($8.50). Dinner platters such as meatloaf or roast pork ($9) fend off hunger with foot soldiers of bread and butter, vegetables or coleslaw, and your choice of rice pilaf, french fries, or mashed potatoes.
