When requests for their showstopping seafood dishes poured in from more friends and family than they could fit inside their kitchen, the Krieger family set up shop inside a roomy Victorian mansion. Today, Ligonier Tavern still serves up crab cakes and ciopinno, as well as burgers made with local grass-fed beef. Diners can pair their meals with a drink from the bar, such as a cocktail made with Knob Creek bourbon, whether they're seated in the restaurant's solarium, its main dining room, or on its second-floor balcony.
Pluma features flavors from across the globe, with Asian fusion, traditional American, hints of Tex-Mex, invasions of Grecian flavor, and Mediterranean traditionals. Crash-land your appetite on the restaurant’s runway-sized menu and scour the pages to settle on an appetizer such as fried provolone (breaded and fried provolone cheese with house-made marinara, $8.95). Then, split a 16-inch meat lover’s pizza with a carnivorous amore (house-made sauce, sausage, pepperoni, ham, bacon, and Italian cheeses, $9.95).
Owned by a dynamic mom-and-pop duo, T. Ferrieri's dishes out a wide range of traditional, homemade Italian fare cooked completely from scratch. Italian staples such as the veal parmesan ($12.50) and the lasagna dinner with garlic bread and side salad ($11) spur taste buds into a silent standing ovation with every harmonious bite. A 20-inch extra-large pizza ($13.50) covers seasonally inappropriate placemats with fresh dough, red sauce or garlic and oil, and savory toppings such as cappicola, pineapple, and feta cheese ($2/topping). The eggplant-parmesan sub ($16 for 2 ft.) and the house salad loaded with onions, carrots, and tomatoes ($5) hit lighter notes for roving packs of opposable-thumbed herbivores. Patrons can pick up their fill with a carryout order or have meals delivered free of charge to domiciles within a 5- to 7-mile radius of T. Ferrieri’s.
The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.
