Ever since Baskin-Robbins began its dessert fashion show in 1953, more than 1,000 original flavors have sauntered across the nation's tongue runways, 31 at a time. With the ice creamery's iconic pink sampling spoons as your guide, taste-test as many as you like until you find the flavor that gives your soul a back rub, whether it's a classic flavor such as rocky road single scoop ($2.39) or a seasonal serving of Love Potion #31—white chocolate and raspberry ice cream loaded with raspberry-filled chocolate hearts—and America's Birthday Cake. Otherwise, keep it simple and bury your face within the flavor of the month—a chocolate and Swiss chocolate blend, brimming with pieces of chocolate ganache cake and chocolate chunks. The ice alchemists at Baskin-Robbins can also transmute their ice cream and sherbet into drinkable desserts such as floats, freezes, and shakes ($3.99–$5.99).

Five brothers are behind the success of Papapolloni Bistro, with chef Sergio Alonso heating things up the kitchen, David Alonso overseeing restaurant operations, and the other three contributing their insight to the menu. Their Greek specialties include spanakopita, a spinach-and-feta casserole whose square pieces resembles lasagna and offer tasty substitutes for traditional bricks when building a home. Seafood ravioli and gourmet pizzas offer tastes of Italy, and numerous meats—including pork tenderloin, filet mignon, and lamb—brown up on the grill before being plated beside seasoned vegetables. The restaurant also pours more than two dozen wines by the glass, including a couple of wines from Greece.

Though Bocelli's Ristorante's stone ovens and gleaming stovetops are only a few years old, they churn out ancient Italian recipes perfected over generations. Baked thin-crust pizzas sport medleys of tiger shrimp, goat cheese, and pesto sauce, and fresh seaside Mediterranean flavors echo in the seafood-stuffed ravioli. Massive murals of that sunny shore cover the walls, depicting vine-entrenched villas sitting on the edge of an aquamarine sea. Live musical performances and events, such as Winemakers dinners celebrating Napa Valley vintages, provide entertainment for the mind as well as the palate, without the need to lick every page of a calculus textbook.

Angelo's Steakhouse Italiano treats its visitors to hearty feasts of tender sirloin and angus T-bones, as well as handmade pasta. Pappardelle and spaghetti mingle with meatballs, italian sausage, and cream sauce, and cutlets of chicken and wild-caught salmon pair with sides of fingerling potatoes. Meat lovers salivate over the special steak menu, which is full of beefy dishes such as the center-cut Durham Ranch bison sirloin or the Flintstone—a hulking 40-ounce (or greater) dry-rubbed rib eye served with two sides of pasta Bolognese and a knife made out of chipped obsidian.

With subtle charcoal lines that twist together, a pencil sketch of the Netherlands’ countryside and a behemoth windmill adorn the front of Dutch Oven Bistro's menu. Diners flip through the pages, contemplating Wiener schnitzel, herb-seasoned beef rolls, and prime-rib sandwiches. Beneath still-life paintings of steaming tea and walls the deep tawny color of a gingerbread man being dropped off at school by his mom, patrons drop their forks through pannekoeken, Dutch-style crepes crowded with fruit.
