Since it was established in 1952 as Alta's Place, Ann's Restaurant has weathered a lot of change. It switched locations; it was destroyed in a fire in 1987 and then reborn; and its seating capacity has expanded from 13 to 100 over the years. But in spite of all this change, the menu is still comprised of American classics just as welcomed in 1952 as they are today. Breakfast plates brim with omelets, buttermilk hot cakes, and biscuits and gravy. During lunchtime, the menu includes grilled tenderloin sandwiches, tuna melts, and half-pound double cheeseburgers.
Mama Nita's Pizza tantalizes taste buds with savory pizzas, crafted from hand-tossed dough, topped with a selection of more than a dozen toppings, and baked in huge ovens until gooey and golden. Within the eatery's charming green walls, more than 20 specialty pizzas buckle under the weight of mouthwatering combinations such as the Mama's World pie festooned with ham and hamburger or the breakfast pizza topped with an eye-opening mélange of sausage, bacon, onions, maple syrup, and a special blend of yawn-flavored spices. Noncircular meals delight diners in the form of calzones, pastas, and more than 24 sub sandwiches.
Enzo Pizza’s chefs blend their own alfredo and marinara sauce to create a pink sauce they pour over penne noodles in a house-special dish. Their homemade alfredo sauce also clings to fettuccine noodles and sautéed chicken breasts. Behind a counter that's visible to patrons, they pile sausage, pepperoni, ham, bacon, and meatballs onto a thin-crust meat-lovers pizza or hide meat inside the stuffed double-pizza crust. They also serve pizza by the slice with toppings that, like most college majors, change daily.
The lavender-and-green-tiled wall at Purple Tree Yogurt is certainly eye catching, but customers gravitate toward it for a different reason. It holds the pumps that they use to self-serve the shop's selection of natural frozen yogurt. After swirling any combination of flavors, customers then bedeck their creations with toppings such as nuts, chocolate chips, jellybeans, cereal, and fresh fruit.
New Bethel Ordinary satisfies hankerings for homestyle cooking with signature brick-oven pizzas, juicy steaks, and sandwiches piled high with toppings. Chefs toss doughy discuses high into the air before pounding them out, throwing them into the oven, and piling them high with cheese and rich tomato sauce. The resulting 10-inch cheese pizzas ($10.50) make the perfect complement to celebrating Little League victories or staring-contest triumphs.
After a decade-long stint in law enforcement, Anne E. Currie returned to the profession she is most passionate about: nailcare. Anne came full circle in 2011, when she opened Nailtoepia after having started her career as a nail technician in 1991. A creative soul, Anne specializes in colored acrylics, custom nail art, and glitter nails that double as disco balls for hamster nightclubs. Along with nail enhancements, she offers a full menu of nailcare services that range from Shellac mani-pedis to men's nailcare at her two locations in Greenfield and Morristown.
Great American Grill shows it patriotism not only through the flag waving proudly on its menu cover, but also with classic American cuisine. The kitchen’s country-fried steak and breaded shrimp evoke down-home charm, as does the hearty housemade chili. Sandwiches range from juicy bacon cheeseburgers to chicken salad, and a rotating daily special infuses the menu with surprise more safely than garnishing every other meal with a lit firework.
