In order to build her award-winning restaurant, executive chef and Kelties founder Keltie Domina not only crafted a menu brimming with creative recipes and gourmet ingredients, but sought to become a friendly and essential part of the surrounding community. To this end, her wait staff strives to acquaint themselves with every guest, greeting familiar customers by name, asking about their family, and guessing their blood type before leading them to tables swathed in white tablecloths. Steaming platters parade through the dining room, wafting aromas of beef wellington, new york strip steak, and herb-crusted tilapia through the olive and brick-studded space. Though the establishment focuses on the unhurried luxury of fine dining, work lunches find both savory and speedy completion with a selection of menu items able to be prepared in 15 minutes or less. On Sundays, the dining room hosts a smorgasbord of brunch favorites, where diners can feast on unlimited portions of eggs benedict, country sausage, and cinnamon rolls over counseling sessions with their alarm clocks. The eatery fills the air with live jazz on Thursdays and weekend nights, which can be heard as far as the sidewalk tables lined up outside the eatery's distinctive red façade.
The brightly colored decor at Yogo Passion hints at the heaps of fresh fruit that wait to top the yogurt that pours from self-serve machines. Spoons clatter as patrons lounge in half-bowl chairs inside or in patio seating. The rotating list of yogurt flavors, much like the list of least popular baby names, includes pistachio, peanut butter, and cake batter.

Since 1945, employees at Handel's Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt have been serving daily-made batches of frozen treats using top-secret ingredients, equipment, and recipes. Their freezers are designed to produce an irresistibly smooth, creamy consistency, which they then enhance with generous handfuls of fresh fruit, dark chocolate, and nuts.
The ice cream's signature texture and rotating menu of more than 140 flavors—which include creative combinations such as coconut almond fudge ripple, cherry cordial, and chocoholic peanut-butter ripple—have earned accolades from customers, industry professionals, and sentient ice-cream scoopers alike. The Indiana locations have earned the title of Best Dessert on North magazine's 2012 Best of the Northside list and have been voted the Best Ice Cream Shop on the Indy A-List for six years running. According to an article by Eric Branch on SFGate, the Boardman, Ohio shop is a must-visit for 49ers players staying nearby.
Tony Palombino is proud of his pizzas. It’s evident from his appearances on Fox59 News and Indy Style, where the lauded chef shows how his signature pollotate pizza’s blend of rosemary-garlic olive oil, asiago, and roasted potatoes became one of Food Network Magazine’s 50 best pizzas in America. Slices from New York–style and Italian–style pies glide into gullets at locations in Kentucky, Indiana, and Arizona, crushing cravings beside homemade appetizers, calzones, and hearty italian sandwiches. Nine locally brewed beers gush from foam-flecked taps beside 15 additional craft suds, loosening lips and ties in honor of BoomBozz’s name, which loosely translates to wild, crazy, and fun.
