While diners wait for a table at Marvaso's Italian Grille, they can drop by the bar to order signature martinis, watch the scenes on flatscreen TVs, or just gaze into the vibrant underwater worlds of two aquariums. The casual space welcomes families, large groups, and one-person think tanks to share jovial conversation and rich Italian dishes. Among the menu highlights are brick-oven pizzas available in four crust options and sprinkled with fresh toppings. They also prepare sandwiches, pastas, and skillet-seared meats.
Fun and flavor go hand-in-hand at Electric Stick, a bar that’s one part casual pool hall and one part restaurant. A fireplace warms the restaurant section, where servers deliver Italian and American fare such as burgers, pizzas, and pasta. Nearby, six pool tables host games of billiards, 17 televisions broadcast sports, and video games host rounds of virtual golf or darts. In addition, regular charity poker games let patrons showcase their Texas hold'em skills and collection of intimidating sunglasses while raising money for a worthy cause. :m]]
Malarkey's Westland offers a full menu of rib-sticking pub fare in a casual sports-bar environment. Start an evening's edible excursion with a bubbly crock of French onion soup ($4.79), or turn boot-shaped fare inside out with the stuffed pizza breadsticks ($4.99). Entrees include hearty hand-helds, such as the hot corned beef sandwich ($7.99) or the half-pound black and bleu burger, a grilled top-round patty sprinkled with Cajun seasonings and swaddled in bacon, grilled onions, and bleu cheese ($7.99). The St. Louis–style barbecue ribs ($9.99 for a half-slab) are a favorite for ravished Rams fans, while the 16-ounce USDA Choice steak Delmonico, served with a salad and choice of potato ($18.99), promises to pump vitamin-Beef-deprived diners with a full daily serving of the elusive nutrient. Pay homage to Malarkey's Irish roots by irrigating your gullet with an imported selection from the draft beer list, such as a pint of Guinness, a 20-ounce shell of Killian's Irish Red, or an inexplicably Belgian "boomba" (34 ounces) of Stella Artois.
Though Macy's is primarily known for its clothing and home decor, the renowned department store is just as adept at feeding its customers as it is at fashionably clothing them. Inside the retail haven's many locations, casual eateries welcome shoppers with classic American dishes updated with fresh ingredients. Lighter plates, such as chopped salads and turkey sandwiches, are served up alongside favorites including grilled burgers and Alaskan cod and chips. Hearty, homestyle entrees of oven-baked meatloaf, chicken pot pie, and macaroni and cheese complete the menu.
