Aside from about 20 grams of protein, what do ahi tuna and steak have in common? They’re both black stone items on the menu at The Cambridge Inn. Diners get to step into the role of chef and cook the thick cuts tableside over heated black stones themselves. That experience anchors a staggering menu of new american eats that covers a wide swath of the culinary landscape, from steaks, burgers, and ribs to veal saltimbocca layered with prosciutto and mozzarella. Paired with sandwiches, salads, and more than 20 appetizers, the almost-steakhouse food is served in smaller lunch portions. It’s also incorporated into the Friday night all-you-can-eat prime rib buffet, and the Sunday champagne brunch, complete with an omelet station and a Virginia ham carving station, which is just like any other ham-carving station, only the chef dresses like Edgar Allan Poe.

There's a 1,000-mile stretch between Japan's coasts and northern China, but those regions' flavors share close quarters in the kitchen of Matata Asian Cuisine. At one moment, the resident chef might be found slicing sushi-grade fish; the next, he might turn to sear a hibachi steak or grill savory mushu pancakes. Diners can also sample the piquant cuisines native to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam; creamy curries, sizzling stir-fries, and Sambal-spiced shrimp are just a few options.

The Comfort Diner, which moved to Staten Island after 14 years in Manhattan, dresses up the traditional diner experience with classic comfort eats and modern-day hearty fare. Keep your growling stomach from frightening friendly ghosts by stuffing it with wild mushroom potato pancakes ($6.95), or start your chew cruise with mozzarella wedges ($6.95), which combine the food world’s most delicious cheese with the geometry world’s most delicious shape. The taco salad ($10.95) gives Mexico’s best-known culinary contribution a fork-friendly format, and oven-crisped fish and chips ($14.95) provide all of the flavor of the British classic without the sizzle of the deep fryer or the voyeuristic glare of Big Ben. Bread-heads can wrap their food-gripping phalanges around an array of sandwiches, such as a grilled chicken club ($8.95) or a Maine crab burger ($13.95), while proteiny-boppers can swoon over double-thick pork chops with homemade applesauce ($14.95). For herbivores, Comfort Diner slings savory angel-hair pasta with white-wine sauce ($10.95) and big bowls of veggie chili ($9.95). Breakfast and brunch options also satisfy early risers or late-to-bedders.

There were seven wonders of the ancient world, but there are eight Nanking Restaurant locations in the New York City area. The restaurants are named for a Chinese historical era defined by its fusion of different culinary traditions. Chefs here prepare each dish with an effort to maintain its historical flavor, creating a mix of Asian cuisine in each plate of sweet-and-sour chicken, Thai-style curry lamb, chili paneer, and sichuan shrimp. As diners savor those dishes, they can admire the restaurant's picturesque interior, which includes red-and-gold-checkered walls, crimson accents, and gold statues of lotus flowers grown from carefully planted jewels.

One of the quicker ways to acclimate yourself to Reimei’s contemporary Japanese cuisine is to order the sushi pizza—it’s a scallion pancake that’s cut into triangles and loaded with chunks of spicy tuna, mango, and avocado. As a matter of fact, avocados are a fixture at the sushi bar, where chefs make use of them in 12 of the 14 specialty rolls (you also can choose ingredients to create your own roll). Other contemporary takes on Asian staples include fried rice served with lobster or taiwanese sausage, and prawns topped with macadamia nuts and honey.

An alternative to these offerings is Reimei’s hibachi cuisine. In a room with 10 grilling stations, skilled chefs spin their spatulas and perform culinary tricks as they prepare meat-heavy dishes such as swordfish, smoked duck, chilean sea bass, and maine lobster tail.
