Though billed as a bakery, Borracchini’s has expanded its offerings to include much more than just colorfully frosted cakes and cookies throughout its 91-year history. At the full deli counter, glass cases brim with mortadella, prosciutto, and provolone, which the staff assembles into sandwiches and pizzas. Shoppers can create their own Italian feasts at home after perusing a small grocery selection of olive oils, wine, pastas, and sauces. Boracchini’s bread menu also bears a Mediterranean accent, exhibited in loaves such as the rosemary parmesan toscano. But none of this distracts the bakers from making their own sweets from scratch. Each morning at dawn, they craft nearly 20 kinds of donuts and breakfast pastries, as well as pies that range from tangy lemon meringue to savory mincemeat.

Four Things to Know About Jae’s Asian Bistro and Sushi

In the space formerly occupied by Chinoise Café, chef-owner Jae Ahrens helms Jae’s Asian Bistro and Sushi, which offers up an impressive selection of nigiri, maki, and entrees. Read on to learn more about this Madison Valley spot.

  • The head chef has some sharp kitchen skills. And he should. Chef Jae Ahrens is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, which explains why every cut of his sashimi looks perfect and each plate looks designed for a spot in the Louvre.
  • You can eat in the garden. In addition to the sushi bar space and the dining room, an outdoor space lets you dine alfresco.
  • It’s not all about Japanese-style fish. Alongside listings for maki and nigiri, you’ll also find French-style rosemary lamb, spicy Korean soon du boo soup, and szechuan chicken, expanding the restaurant’s flavors beyond its primary seafood offerings.
  • Happy hour is a don’t-miss. Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., you can pair $3 beer and $4 sake with appetizers, maki, nigiri, and sashimi—all of which are priced at $5 and under.

When Rod, Eric, and Alan moved from the Northwest to Las Vegas in 2003, they were told they were crazy to start a new restaurant in a new city. But they had faith in their secret recipe, and it didn't take long for Teriyaki Madness to scatter from coast-to-coast. The restaurants serve wholly customized platters of chicken, beef, and tofu doused in a housemade teriyaki sauce. These meals can take the form of a bowl filled with white or brown rice, a yakisoba dish over stir-fried noodles, or a salad bereft of any carbs at all. Balancing healthy-conscious options with big flavor and hearty servings, Teriyaki Madness proves that you don't need to give up your diet to have a delicious meal.
