Traditionalists of Italian fare can indulge in the spicy italian with pepperoni, sausage, and invisible Da Vinci-shaped meat (a $16.99 value for a large), and more progressive pie enthusiasts may select the hawaiian barbecue-chicken pizza––a vacation-inducing amalgamation of grilled chicken, barbecue sauce, hickory-smoked bacon, onions, and pineapple (a $16.99 value). Choose to indulge a creative culinary streak by designing a large Create Your Own pizza, selecting up to five toppings from an arsenal of dough accessories, including ham, banana peppers, and artichoke hearts (up to a $20.94 value). Like a bangin’ club or especially bangin’ fireplace store, Papa John's stays open late, making it an opportune eatery for impromptu pajama jams and uncontrollable sleep-feasting.

Awash in the glow of Adriatic's flickering forno, chef Bill Trudnowski fondly recalls a youth spent watching his father, the son of a butcher, prepare fresh farm-to-table cuisine. After a stint in the army, Trudnowski started a new career as a corporate executive chef, eventually opening Adriatic Grill, his first restaurant. Distinguished by locally sourced seasonal ingredients and careful preparation, dishes range from ocean-fresh shellfish and bone-in chops to eight flavors of thin-crust pizzas crisped inside a custom-built wood-burning oven. Bill, named the Best Chef of 2012 by South Sound Magazine, is happy to accommodate special requests, whether they involve removing the gluten, substituting items, or writing his autograph in gravy.

Whether you stop in for a lingering lunch with a promising first date or a decadent dinner with a debonair art thief, the Ravenous board of fare will keep your hunger-crazed stomach from punching you in the lung.
