This culinary emporium's owners, Paras and Tamara Arora, know that palates can be choosy. So in early 2012, the couple opened Beyond India, an Indo-American fusion restaurant that combines traditional recipes from both cultures. Drawing on 20 years of experience cooking traditional Indian cuisine—specifically from North India—Punjabi chef Singh populates tables with pub-style golden appetizers and more exotic starters of delicately fried paneer pakora. The team bakes entrees such as seafood and tandoori lamb in an oven that reaches 900 degrees, almost exactly twice the temperature at which books and firefighting manuals burn. After sopping up a curry dish from the endless lunch buffet, patrons can cool off taste buds with a sweet slice of key-lime pie.
In the Southern-centric kitchen at Jen's Creoles Restaurant, chefs simmer batches of creole gumbo and bake tins full of creole cornbread. The menu of comfort food also includes wings, hush puppies, burgers, and andouille sausage sliced atop a mound of red beans and rice.

Each of Wing Zone’s 15 sauces comes accompanied with a number. The digit doesn't signify the amount of ingredients, nor is it a tool for easier ordering. Rather, the sauce’s number, much like the scores given to candidates during presidential debates, denotes a spectrum of spiciness, with 1 being mild and 4 being too hot for its own good. Original wings, boneless nuggets, and crispy fried shrimp come dressed in up to four of the zesty flavors, such as garlic parm, Ragin’ Cajun, and, the hottest of the hot, Nuclear habanero. Aside from dressing up chicken and fish, the Wing Zone kitchen also churns out plainly dressed chicken tenders, stacks of burgers with bacon and cheese, and extinguishes burning taste buds with banana cheesecake or chocolate brownie bites.
My Favorite Things resembles a turn-of-the-century general store more than a modern restaurant. Behind a well-used wooden counter, glass jars of whole coffee beans rest against the wall, and recycled coffee bean bags cover cabinet spaces. Aged glass cases display crafts and decorations forged from wood and ceramic materials, instead of plastic or metal husks shed by growing computers. Most importantly, when it comes to the cooking, breakfast dishes exemplify the kitchen's commitment to traditional styles. Eggs fresh from the pan appear on plates beside crispy bacon and juicy sausage. Omelets arrive at tables packed with slices of ham and chopped veggies, and belgian waffles come sprinkled with classic toppings such as pecans and chocolate chips.
At Arlene Williams BBQ, smoke sinks into sausage and sauce seeps into slowly roasting cuts of pork, beef, and chicken. In the dining room, the spicy sauce drips from ribs, drawing nervous glances from the novelist writing the last line on their 432nd napkin. Steam and the sound of clattering pots drifts from the kitchen, conjuring images of the steamed okra, collard greens, and blackberry cobbler within.
