Way more than just a pizzeria, the chefs at A Fat Boyz Pizzeria slice up fresh, locally-sourced ingredients that make their way onto a menu of breakfast, lunch, and—of course—pizza. From the kitchen, stacks of pancakes are carried out to tables alongside breakfast bowls lined with smoked salmon, sauteed spinach, hash browns, cheddar, and a poached egg. During evenings, you can stop by for a whole hand-tossed pie decorated with applewood smoked bacon, fresh veggies, and other classic ingredients. And more adventurous eaters can build all manner of unorthodox pie with toppings such as cream cheese and artichokes.
Troy Meat Shop purveys a wide variety of meats and cheeses, from ham or smoked-turkey cold cuts to butcher's cuts of meat. The shop’s butchers prepare their meats in-house, making chicken salad and sausage links, grinding ground chuck into patties, and cutting their pork and beef fresh each day. Patrons can also request custom meat processing and get their pork shoulder sliced just the way they or their imaginary poodle likes it.
The walls of LeDoux's Restaurant, which are honey-hued with well-loved patches of exposed brick, embody the warm, homey nature of Cajun cuisine. Steam infused with bay leaves, cayenne pepper, and andouille sausage spirals from cauldrons of jambalaya and gumbo. A fireplace pours forth its toasty affections in the bayou-inspired interior, where a fountain whispers softly alongside hanging plants that swing slowly over patrons like Tarzan during rush hour. At the full bar, mugs of Louisianan libations, such as Turbodog, Purple Haze, and Dixie ale, leave cool rings of condensation next to plates of fried frog legs and gator. Sated sighs drift from LeDoux's patio, where crackling torches cast orange accents on the liberal sprinkling of fleurs-de-lis that festoon the building and the staff's uniforms. On select nights, applause rolls over live musical acts and free-range shadow puppets.
A smattering of 20 sauces and seasonings dripping from handspun wings coats patrons' fingers as they cheer on their favorite professional sports teams broadcast on Buffalo Wild Wings' TVs. Eyes are torn between watching teams dribble a ball, shoot a puck, and land a grand jeté, and plates of plentiful wings, burgers, wraps, salads, and ribs. For more entertainment, trivia games exercise brains, and the Blazin' Challenge offers recognition for those brave enough to down a dozen wings slathered in the eatery's hottest sauce in 6 minutes.
