The wine gurus at The Wine Cafe instill their deep love of the grape-fermented drink in others with a long-winded wine list and a tastefully matching menu. While slurping down a glass of Woop Woop's Australian chardonnay ($6), diners can snack on deluxe sandwiches such as the salami-stuffed and tapenade-topped Italian ($6.50–$8.50), or accompany a build-your-own pizza ($11) with 16 available garnishes and Gnarly Head's California zinfandel ($6/glass). Chunks of grilled bread and kalamata olives swim in a tasty pool of mediterranean spinach and artichoke dip ($8.95), but only because all the other pools are closed for the summer. For dessert, save wear and tear on your teeth by ordering a banana cream cheesecake ($3.50) and imagining how good it must taste while sipping Casillero del Diablo's merlot ($7) or a beer.

Edible art—that’s how New Osaka views its cuisine. The restaurant’s chefs meticulously plate elegant sushi dishes, occasionally adding fun touches, such as using sauce to draw a palm tree on a white plate or a picture of Warren G. Harding bare-knuckle boxing Calvin Coolidge.

New Osaka’s design reflects this artistic mindset, too, with its modern décor and elevated dining area. Guests can sit there or, if they want to watch the chefs assemble their elegant creations, at the sushi bar. Nearby, a full-service bar dishes out imported and domestic beers, cocktails, and plum wine.

Pizza Man's housemade dough is kneaded fresh daily, layered with real Wisconsin cheese, and slow baked until it's a perfectly crispy, cheesy disc crowned by quality meats and veggies. This tantalizing process ensured that Pizza Man, which began as a standalone joint in 1977, branched out to its 33 current locations. Each of the pizza shops still fashions its pies from high-quality ingredients and puts an emphasis on old-school pizza-baking techniques. Toppings such as canadian bacon, sausage, and taco meat wait patiently to be bound together by a cheesy glue with fellows such as pineapples and pickles in one of Pizza Man's signature or make-your-own pies. The non-pizza selections include jumbo chicken wings, beer-battered onion rings, and the cinnamon-apple dessert pizza, which weds the sweet decadence of dessert with the Euclidean precision of pizza.:m]]

The pina colada malt combines strawberry, pineapple, and banana, while Emily's Favorite entreats sweet teeth with an avalanche of hot fudge and butterscotch. Chefs forge fresh burgers to order and with creative twists, such as the Pig Out burger made with a blend of bacon and ground beef ($8.50), or the Cowboy burger ($6.25), slathered in cheddar, barbecue sauce, and caramelized spurs. A garden salad ($7.25), homemade onion rings ($3.95) and a variety of classic sandwiches help round out memorable meals.
