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).

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.

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.

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.
