The newly renovated Randy Loren's Dolce Vita Ristorante infuses classic Italian dishes with a love of music that permeates the classic atmosphere. As diners enjoy plates of lightly breaded veal and parmesan-encrusted tilapia, on Fridays and Saturdays performers take to the dining room’s elevated stage to coax melodies from a white grand piano sitting under a disco ball and colorful lights. In addition, trimming decorated like piano keys accentuates the wooden bar, whose array of liquor and wine bottles would produce its own grand symphony if it were ever hit with a bunch of tiny pebbles.

Since opening the first location in 2004, the crew behind Hot Harry’s has attracted a slew of press for their Mexican-fusion fare. Chefs marinate six varieties of meat in cilantro, lime, and fresh-squeezed oranges before stuffing them in warm flour tortillas or piñatas designed for a butcher's retirement party. In addition to the classic triad of guacamole, sour cream, and cheese, they can enhance burritos with drizzles of thai-peanut and buffalo sauce.

Those vying for a chocolaty treat can sink delighted dentures into a collection of old-fashioned gourmet brownies with nuts ($9.95). Made with real butter and Madagascar bourbon vanilla, these fudge-like bastions of joy are packed with walnuts and copious amounts of chocolate, treating mouths to a symphony of textures, flavors, and sugar-induced outbreaks of uncontrollable giggles.

Best-friend bakers Abby Ruscitto and Shawnie Masilotti craft Melt Creations' kaleidoscope of custom cake pops in an array of sweet flavor combinations. Fourteen cake varieties including chocolate, cheesecake, and sugar-free selections bake into bite-sized orbs before 25 coatings wrap each morsel in a caramel, pomegranate, or chocolate-mint-flavored shell. Confections don crowns of frosting and toppings of colorful sprinkles or crushed pretzels, then perch atop a paper stick for silverware-free savoring. Meanwhile, designer cake pops take on preplanned combinations such as the Breakfast, which merges the salty sweetness of maple-apple-bacon cake with maple frosting and tomorrow's news.
