Familiar comfort foods and a cozy, welcoming ambiance make Cathedral Street Bistro the kind of restaurant where lingering over a glass of wine feels perfectly natural. Old World French and Italian influences appear throughout the menu of pasta creations and rustic, yet composed entrees. Not every inspiration comes from beyond the Atlantic, though. The chefs also lend a bit of homespun charm to their meals by hand-rolling meatballs, making granola in-house, and calling everybody "kiddo."
Coffee & Company purveys fine coffees, teas, and light lunch in addition to a wide range of dessert and decorative products. Grilled goods hold conference on a lunch menu led by delegates such as the toscano panini, a helping of genoa salami and black-forest ham girded with cheese, peppers, and sun-dried-tomato pesto ($6.25). The vegetarian panini swirls together a grilled garden of zucchini, red and green peppers, and onions, draped, like an insouciant goddess, in feta and olive oil ($6.25). The caffeine desirous may delve into the depths of a 20-ounce brewed coffee ($2.12) or match the frothy footwork of a large latte ($4.75), and a slice of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake sates stomachs with a sugary top coat ($4.75–$6.95).
Named for Mexican revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata, Zapata’s Mexican Restaurant overthrows bland meals with a menu of zesty cuisine. Customers choose from dishes such as grilled chimichangas, smoky baby back ribs with Mexican rice, and cornmeal crepes with mushroom sauce. Bartenders pair diners' meals with sangria, beer, and frozen cocktails.
