It's easy to get drawn into the front room at Arirang: there's inviting tropical decor and a sunken bar where bartenders stir and shake 25 different specialty martinis. At the surrounding booths, diners scoop up maki rolled with coconut shrimp and peppered tuna from their plates or overly intimate friend's hands. Beyond the koi pond, in the main dining room, stand hibachi chefs surrounded by cooktops upon which they toss morsels of filet, chicken, and seafood. Guests can order their proteins in a variety of combinations, but they'd be wise to save room for Asian-inspired desserts such as tempura cheesecake.
Muscle Maker Grill grew out of a small smoothie shop, where owner Rod Silva prepared health-conscious alternatives to fast food. The restaurant has since expanded with a menu tailored to accommodate diners with vegetarian, carb-free, and gluten-free diets. The crew prides themselves in creating healthy versions of popular foods, and continues to serve the shop?s original protein shakes with favorites such as chocolate peanut butter and strawberry banana. Additionally, Muscle Maker Grill displays the calorie count for each dish on the menu.
Atlantic Standard came by its name through the twin goals of its owners: to make dishes from scratch with seasonal Atlantic ingredients, and to set the standard for the culinary industry. Under the watchful eye of experienced chef and owner Bradley Rodriguez, the kitchen staff plates flavorful seafood dishes, brick-oven pizzas, and contemporary entrees bolstered by house-made pastas.
The chefs at Habiby's Authentic Middle Eastern Cuisine grill up traditional skewers of chicken, beef, and lamb and fry crisp pucks of falafel for pita sandwiches. In addition to these Middle Eastern standards, they prepare a handful of Mexican dishes, such as tacos, burritos, and fajitas, with their own unique twist. Live Arabic music accompanies diners' noshing on baklava and gargling of mint tea every Friday evening.
Paradise Biryani Pointe’s thin curtains allow just enough light to illuminate plates topped with halal meats and traditional veggie dishes culled from Indo Chinese, north Indian, and south Indian recipes. House specialties include egg biryani with long-grained basmati rice cooked with veggies and hard-boiled eggs in the secret style of hyderabadi nawabi cooking. They also prepare traditional favorites including chicken tikka, goat curry, and fish curry.
The pizza slingers at Papa John's toss each doughy discus by hand, and top their signature sauce with decadent mozzarella, fresh vegetables, and quality meats. Pie Picassos design two pies with up to two toppings each, and can commission a portrait of baby portobello mushrooms and spicy italian sausage posing against a backdrop of chewy crust or forge a blend of three cheeses smattered with crispy bacon. Tongues tiring of pizza's circular logic can take between-bite breaks with a side of breadsticks or parmesan-garlic breadsticks. A splashy two-liter beverage keeps taste buds on their toes. Order online to arrange a pickup or delivery, or visit a Papa John's location to dine right where the cheese sticks are harvested.
