Seven days a week, Jade Garden Chinese Restaurant helps transport lunch and dinner guests to faraway lands with a smorgasbord of authentic Chinese flavors. Fresh meats and vegetables decorate traditional platters of lo mein noodles, chop suey, and tofu while more than 25 chef's specials feature savory meats drizzled with sauces such as spicy plum. Entrées can also be paired with a selection of international beverages that range from hot ginger jasmine tea to Japanese sake and imported beer.
Specializing in good, simple comfort food, the folks at Jerry Bob's Family Restaurant offer breakfast all day and a host of lunch specials. Customize your omelet with pretty much any combination of meat, veggies, and sides you'd like. Or, go for a "square meal"—a big plate of ham, hash browns, toast, and square eggs. Afternoons, stop in for a chicken salad sandwich or one of Jerry Bob's specials, such as better-than-mom's meatloaf.
The authentic Chinese dishes at Szechuan Omei strike a balance between sweet, savory, and spicy flavors, with chef's specialties ranging from mild cantonese chow mein to peking duck complete with oriental crêpes and plum sauce. Asian-inspired artwork and a massive photograph of a mountain landscape emblazon the walls, and an aquarium by the entrance houses a glistening silver fish to greet guests and ask if they are celebrating special occasions this evening.
Shucked from their shells at the raw bar, a daily selection of oysters travels from the open-air kitchen out into the dining room, where conversation buzzes beneath the high-hanging lights that cast a glow on an expansive leather banquette and dark wood paneling. Behind the long, white bar, the mixologists of Agustin Brasserie shake, stir, and pour a selection of classic cocktails alongside beers pulled from a chrome tap. Upstairs, an outdoor rooftop deck allows visitors to sip libations while watching the sunset. Crafting a simple, French-inspired menu consisting of staples such as duck confit, steak and frites, and roasted chicken, the Brasserie’s chefs construct simple, artful dishes that are at once delightfully complex and wholly accessible—much like cartoon drawings of quantum physics theories.
The menu at Chopstix Asian Diner amalgamates the flavors of Japan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, and beyond to create a unique selection of Pan-Asian cuisine. Chicken satays slathered in peanut sauce share menu space with Korean-style barbecue short ribs and pad thai with pan-fried shrimp. Mongolian-style stir-fry blends red and green onions with spicy house sauce and a choice of meat. Vegetarian choices include spicy eggplant stir-fried in a garlic sauce or the chop suey vegetable delight with napa cabbage, snow peas, corn, broccoli, and bamboo shoots.
Vegetarian entrees, piquant soups, and simmering noodles fill plates at Asian Bistro, where specialty drinks such as the mango-and-pineapple-infused Hawaiian Escape provide sweet accompaniment to meals. Happy hour ushers in discounted meals and desserts such as house-made mango pudding, and swift delivery service whisks meals directly to one's door or backyard tree fort.
