Ben's Morrisville Deli's cooks bake fresh breads and desserts, whip up Italian-style entrees and hot sandwiches, and assemble salads, keeping their recipes alive since 1958. Their specials change daily and necessitate repeat visits for diners who wish to try both the pierogis and the Salisbury steak. For large-group dining, they cater occasions with hot and cold eats en masse, fueling board meetings or jury duty reunions with long trays of sandwiches or an à la carte selection of hot entrees.

Michael Stanzione began his 35-year career at the Culinary Institute of America. With more than three decades of cooking and managing restaurants under his belt, Michael deemed it time to set forth on his own adventure and opened Cafe 3131. He draws on his years of experience to create a masterful menu of breakfast and lunch dishes that showcase grilled veggies on a bed of spinach, or hot chicken cheesesteak sandwiches.
Everybody has a favorite style of pizza crust. Rather than take sides, the cooks at Family Nest Restaurant include several of the most popular, including Sicilian and thin crust. Atop gourmet pies they sprinkle ingredients such as buffalo chicken and baked ziti, one of Family Nest's many housemade Italian classics, which range from chicken florentine to veal marsala.
Besides Italian staples, the culinary team whips up pizzeria favorites such as eggplant parm subs, ham calzones with seven-cheese blends, and gourmet wraps. The Brando, for instance, combines pesto chicken, roasted red peppers, and mozzeralla cheese, the same foods Marlon Brando stuffed in his mouth to make that wheezy voice in The Godfather.
