Amici's Restaurant's chefs stir pots brimming with fresh pastas, plate golden rings of fried calamari, and grill new york strip steaks. The servers then transport the platters of Italian fare to the dining area, which is enclosed by exposed-brick walls and filled with round tables draped in crisp, white cloths and topped with bottles of olive oil for drizzling on fresh bread or silencing squeaky olive-oil bottles. Paintings of quaint cafes hang above the full bar, where a sleek stone counter reflects the restaurant's red and white exterior with a decorative wrought-iron café table and chairs for two.
Pressure-fried turkey combines the best of deep-frying and roasting a turkey. The pressure keeps moisture in and oil out, resulting in a tender, moist meat similar to a deep-fried turkey, but with the lower calories of a roast turkey. Inspired turkey whips up turkey servings for individuals and families and can craft complete meals worthy of Thanksgiving with mashed potatoes, corn bread, and gravy.

The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sign may be ubiquitous today as a spot for good ole’ Texas barbecue, but when Travis Dickey first opened his Dallas shop in 1941, the sign had to share space with advertisements to help pay rent. In the 70 years since then, the Dickeys have done well for themselves, with their initial store spawning a slew of franchises throughout the country. Though the barbecue at each outpost is no longer under the hand of one of Dickey’s descendants, each shop still smokes their own meats in-house to create the signature Texan flavor that infuses their briskets, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs.
Meals can come in any size, from the a la carte sandwiches to platters that incorporate a chosen number of meats with a buttery roll, a pickle, ice cream, and two homestyle sides. Whether serving up their dishes in the dining room or packing them up for take-away or catering, the staff ensures that each client gets a taste of Texas home cooking without the hassle rubbing every dish on a campfire crock-pot.
Music swells within the local grassroots studio, bouncing off ceilings and reverberating through microphones. Matthew Vitti of Mother Brother Studios captures the sounds with an arsenal of recording gear.

Matthew uses his trained ear during session work, helping to arrange and compose pieces and choosing the right studio musician to bring in if need be. His network of professional musicians allows him to draft a technically proficient drummer for challenging percussion tracks or call in a soothing violinist when a rowdy drummer won’t go to sleep. The Studio extends their services to artists of all ages and genres.
