Serving up authentic, organic fare, Lucci's Little Italy hosts a Mediterranean menu medley of fresh and fragrant pizza, pasta, and authentic Italian desserts. Revel in a rotund cup of fagioli soup ($2.95), or calm surly stomachs with a crostini-kissed prosciutto salad, with Italian ham, mozzarella, fresh tomato, and basil oil on a crunchy bed of romaine ($9.95). Unlike baked Alaska, baked pastas such as oven-baked lasagna ($8.95) and baked ziti ($8.95) do not require taste buds to hitchhike through Canada. Pizza disks arrive in 7- and 10-inch formats, loaded with meatballs ($6.95/$9.95), chicken-pesto displays ($8.95/$11.95), and chicken alfredo, spinach, and dried-cranberry combinations ($9.85/$12.95).
When customizing a frozen dessert with toppings, many people reach for chocolate chips, sprinkles, or a barrel of whipped cream. Swirlin Twirlin has those classic add-ons in spades—but its toppings selection ventures into unexpectedly gourmet territory, as well. Pomegranates dipped in dark chocolate, bites of cheesecake, and Andes mints join the lineup alongside chilled blackberries, mangos, and watermelon. All of the fresh fruit and crumbled candies are cut daily, and taste-tested by the staff themselves before being added to the bar, which offers more than 50 topping choices.
These add-ons require a foundation, of course. Swirlin Twirlin houses a wall of self-serve machines that fill cups with frozen yogurt in a variety of low-fat, non-fat, and non-dairy flavors. The sweet spirals range from original tart to red velvet, and contain probiotics that aid the "friendly" bacteria that already exist in the digestive system. There are even no-sugar-added flavors, including mango and chocolate, which offer delicious bites without the addition of sucrose.
Welcoming guests from all walks of life, Red Sky Neighborhood Grill invites families to its booths, friends to its barstools, and coworkers to its tables to dine on a wide selection of American favorites. In the kitchen, cooks carve 14-ounce rib-eye steaks, fry shrimp, and grill Atlantic salmon. Sets of four mini cheeseburgers attempt to contain a house specialty sauce, and half-pound Angus burgers bathe in barbecue sauce topped with bacon or hoist melty pimento cheese. Guests enjoy all of this in an earth-toned dining room featuring a sprawling, colorful mural of hot air balloons filled with air from the mouths of politicians.
At Swirlz Yogurt Bar, customers hop from station to station, operating as many of 21 handles as they desire while swirling velvety combos into cups and waffle cones. The variety of flavors includes sea salt caramel, cookies n cream, vanilla, strawberry, custard, white chocolate mousse, tart, strawberry, and a range of sorbets. Healthy topping choices such as blueberries and yogurt chips are joined by more indulgent options of the chocolate and candy variety. To keep options virtually endless, guests also have tarts and sorbets to pick from, as well as dairy-free and gluten-free frozen treats.
For more than 50 years, the sweet-treat crafters of The Baking Grounds Bakery Cafe have been churning out customized confectionaries in an old-fashioned, family-run boutique bakery. Dining duos can peruse the made-from-scratch lunch menu items before yodeling out orders, such as ham, turkey, or chicken-salad sandwiches. Bowls of homemade soup and sides of chips chime salty notes against epiglottises as a freshly baked cookie polishes off the meal with a sweet treat.
The bakers of The Baking Grounds whip together freshly crafted cakes for any special occasion, from weddings and anniversaries to graduations from light-pole-climbing school. After discussing designs with a friendly cake constructor, batter bases will be poured from chosen flavors, such as marble, lemon pound, or chocolate-almond pound, which can be encased around cake filling, such as apricot or cannoli. A fondant-free layer of buttercream icing crowns the confectionary masterpiece with delicious icing flavors and skillfully applied swirls and flower cake designs to fill cheek caves.
