A portmanteau of “mozzarella” and “pepperoni” gave Marvin Mozzeroni’s its playful name, but the origins of the restaurant itself are rooted in New York. The pizzeria was founded by two Rochester natives in 2004 as Starving Marvin's Pizza before they changed the name in 2007 when they turned their single eatery into a franchise. To this day native New Yorkers own and operate the five locations found throughout the state, including their two new locations in Henrietta and Greece.

The emphasis here is on their numerous specialty pizzas, baked in a brick oven and made fresh daily with hand-tossed dough. They come with a thick or thin crust and homemade red or white sauce, and can be ordered whole or by the slice. The menu also features other Italian food, including calzones and chicken parmigiana, as well as a mix of American-style classics such as hoagies, cheeseburgers, wings with homemade sauce and bleu cheese, and hot dogs. Those with food allergies can opt for gluten-free pizza.

Under the guidance of the Sarma brothers, who own and operate Haveli Indian Cuisine, the chefs take care to turn out traditionally crafted Indian dishes that showcase tender lamb and chicken baked in clay ovens. Each geographic region of India has its own variation on common recipes, and Haveli's menu mirrors this broad culinary scope. Plates of vegetarian saag paneer spice up spinach cooked with cubes of cheese, and fiery vindaloo entrees send bites of shrimp or chicken blazing across taste buds. Platters of rich curries and sides, such as freshly baked roti or samosas, keep the lunch buffet packed for people on a break from work or spelunkers searching for something that's truly bottomless.

Within his cozy, red-brick restaurant, chef CJ Grimes and his staff dole out Southern homestyle dishes from a rotating menu. Regular offerings of pork chops and fried catfish or haddock couple with sides of collard greens, seafood gumbo, and dirty rice, and daily specials tempt taste buds toward savory servings of ox tail, barbecue pork spare ribs, or meatloaf. The cozy dining area welcomes visitors to warm up their appetites and fork-tossing arms with games of pool and darts, and the friendly staff and homey atmosphere may inspire groups to linger longer while enjoying a daily dessert such as peach cobbler or pumpkin cream-cheese cake.

Eat Like a Brazilian Cowboy

The history of Espada Brazilian Steak's churrascaria cuisine stretches back centuries, to the gauchos of southern Brazil. After a long day of saying "Get along, little doggies" in Portuguese, these cattle-herding cowboys would skewer choice cuts of beef and roast them over an open fire. Here, diners experience a luxurious version of the gauchos' rugged cooking style, relaxing with caipirinhas and other drinks as chefs present them with the succulent grilled meats.

Know Your Cut

First-timers may not recognize certain churrascaria meats. Here's a quick rundown: * Lingui?a sausage: This mild, flavorful sausage is the result of a recipe made exclusively for Espada. It's best served right off the grill, or added to the restaurant's traditional black bean stew to make a dish called feijoada. * Picanha: This top sirloin steak is the restaurant's signature cut. It's specially trimmed to create a lean steak with a thin cap of fat for flavor. * Fraldinha: Although fraldinha is carved from the bottom tip of the sirloin, it shouldn't be confused with flank or skirt steak. The main difference is its supreme tenderness.

A Fusion of Old and New

A churrascaria menu isn't the only thing that ties Espada Brazilian Steak to Brazil; guests literally touch a piece of South America while sitting in chairs made with wood reclaimed from an old Brazilian ship. But while much of the decor at Espada Brazilian Steak is traditional, the restaurant's deeper infrastructure couldn't be more modern: it runs entirely on renewable solar, wind, and hydro energy.
