At Steve The Southern Gourmet Restaurant and Catering, chefs Steve Graham and Yanci Evans want diners to feel like they're at grandma's house. To accomplish that, they went to straight to the source—they visited the kitchens of grandmas all around the area, studying techniques for making dishes from smothered pork chops to fried catfish. And like their grandmotherly mentors, they eschew anything prepackaged, using only fresh ingredients such as wild mushrooms and ground Angus beef. Their dedication to southern cuisine extends to the beverages, from the sweet tea brewed with sugar to the Carolina muscadine wines. The chefs keep the kitchen warm daily at the restaurant's large, airy dining space, as well as take it on the road to cater events such as weddings and eating-contest after-parties.

Lidos - The Euro Spot leads a double life as a quaint European bistro by day and a lively dance club at night. During lunch and dinner hours throughout the week, chefs simmer up signature dishes of russian goulash with Angus beef, Hungarian-style chicken paprikash, or german pork schnitzel in a creamy mushroom sauce. Tabletops sprinkle its sunny outdoor patio, and soft green walls surround the white-clothed tables of its dining room. Come nightfall, however, the tables are swept away, the lights dim, and the room fills with the sounds of bumping dance music, live bands, and karaoke. A well-stocked bar serves up regular drink specials, including ladies’-night discounts for women or poodles in convincing tutus.

Customers won't find any heat lamps within The Wing Co.'s kitchen, but that doesn't mean their made-to-order wings aren't hot. Instead, the increased temperatures come from nine sauces, which run the gamut from sweet chili to Cajun to teriyaki. However, the cooks aren’t content to just spread sauce on wings. Upon customer request, they can also splash the tasty liquids over salads, riblets, and sandwiches—including their signature wing burger.

Matching the wings’ heat is the dining room's firefighter-themed decor. Hardhats and helmets double as lampshades, while firefighter boots, tanks, and clothing hang from the walls, in case of an emergency costume party.

Growing up in the Udon Thani province of Thailand, the owners of Orchid Garden learned to love two things: cooking and the province's famed orchids. So when they opened their family restaurant using the recipes they learned in Udon Thani, they decided to name it Orchid Garden. There, they specialize in spicy Thai curries and stir-fried noodles, which they toss with a choice of meat, seafood, veggies, or tofu, using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. Their signature dish is the ba lad prig, a whole fish that is marinated and deep fried before being spiced with lemon leaves, Thai basil, garlic, and hot peppers. On weekdays, 30 of their dishes can be found on the lunch buffet. But the selections rotate every day, like the tires of someone who commutes from Seattle to Boston for work. They don't limit their menu to just Thai items, however. They also serve up classic Chinese dishes as well as beer and wine from around the world.

The scents of grilled lamb and basmati rice filled chef Mustafa Somar’s dreams for 30 years, making him hungry to open his own Turkish restaurant. This dream came true in 2003 with Sherefe Mediterranean Grill.

Mustafa mans the kitchen as his wife, Kathy, delivers juicy chicken kebabs and tzatziki as smooth as a zamboni’s footprint. Greek and Italian influences infuse the menu, seeping into homemade eggplant lasagnas and Mediterranean feasts brimming with hummus, kalamata olives, and fresh tomatoes.

Across town at Cross Creek Mall, Mustafa’s deli counter teems with to-go treats such as grilled-meatloaf paninis and toasted croissant sandwiches. Here, diners can also pull up a chair and practice their Turkish by saying “sherefe”—the word for “cheers”—as they clink glasses of wine and beer.
