When childhood friends Ronald Liu, Jessica Chiep, and Thomas Wang decided to veer off the traditional corporate path, they set out to open their own cafe. Combining their American upbringing with Asian culture heritage, they wanted to create a unique and Asian-American fusion concept to put the power of culinary creation into the hands of their guests. The result was The H.A. Cafe, a casual dining spot where guests can choose everything from fresh fish and veggies to sauces and starches to create their own sushi rolls, dons, or okonomiyakis?a Japanese version of American pizza. The menu relies on plenty of startling ingredients; wakame seaweed, greens, and cucumbers flavor many of the dishes, from the tuna sashimi salad dressed in wasabi ranch, to the grilled chicken teriyaki bowl. At the bubble tea and smoothie bar, baristas trained in mixology hand-craft fresh brewed tea infused with fruit juices and a large variety of boba.

McKinney and Burbach Tavern serves up a menu of hearty pub fare. Start off with an appetizer such as dragon (chicken) wings, served plain, buffalo style, or slathered in barbecue sauce, with spice-stifling celery and blue cheese ($8); or choose skewers with your choice of pork or chicken, or a combination of each, served grilled on a shrunken hunting spear ($9). For dinner, choose a traditional pub entree such as the great all-american burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion lounging on a mattress of ground beef served on a roll with a side of fries or M&B slaw ($7), or a more exotic favorite such as the chicken caesar a parmesan cheese-ordained courtship of grilled chicken and romaine lettuce nobly drizzled in caesar dressing and served on a roll or in edible wrapping paper ($8). To appease the hoggishly persnickety circumvallate papillae taste buddies, McKinney and Burbach will be expanding their pub menu after the New Year.

To unpack everything 226 Jazz Art Java has to offer, it's easiest to work backwards through the name, starting with java. At 7 a.m. each day, baristas begin crafting organic, free-trade coffees into classic beverages such as cappuccinos and espressos. Gluten-free goodies like muffins, bagels, and cookies complement cups of joe in the morning, while entrees of salads and wraps appear around lunchtime. By day, patrons can enjoy these meals while taking in 226's surrounding art shows?panoplies of local paintings, photography, and mixed media that rotate monthly. The final part of the equation is live jazz, which transforms the space on two Saturday nights each month.
