Though University Chophouse's lunch and dinner menus are packed with a mix of fine dining and traditional southern cuisine, the restaurant's owner admits that if he were "a bad boy and had my final meal in prison," the Mediterranean scallops would be his order. This dish?which combines the savory mollusks with linguini, spinach, tomato, and a white-wine sauce?demonstrates how this isn't your average steak house, though the grass-fed Angus steaks are hard to pass up. Aged for a minimum of 28 days, these delicacies are cooked in a 1,800-degree broiler and added to dishes such as the filet oscar, which comes topped with lump crab, asparagus, and hollandaise. And as the wait staff ferries plates throughout the neutral-toned dining room, a picture window reveals an outdoor courtyard large enough to seat more than 70 guests.

The chefs at HuHot Mongolian Grill stand around a giant, round grill, preparing sizzling heaps of stir-fry. Unlike at other restaurants, every serving is different because, instead of the kitchen staff, the customer preps each bowl. The bowls may be brimming with chopped vegetables, seafood, and noodles, or they may be composed entirely of water chestnuts. The spice level of each dish varies based on the eater's preferences; MSG-free sauces range from barbecue to sweet teriyaki to five-alarm Kung Pao … Yow! Since HuHot Mongolian Grill is an all-you-can-eat affair, diners get the chance to mix and match different ingredients with each trip to the grill.
