Diners in search of Kansas City-style cuisine need only to step inside the wood-covered confines of Bobby Q's Bodacious BBQ & Grill, a family-friendly barbecue joint known for tender, pit-smoked meats smothered in award-winning sauces and celebrating their 10th year in the business. The eatery?s imported culinary stylings have earned it a spot on the Food Network, as well as the title ?Best of the Gold Coast? from readers of Westport Magazine, who were undoubtedly delighted by favored items such as the slow-smoked pulled pork and the grilled Gulf Shrimp. Roasted atop an open beer can for proper moisture, their beer can chicken is far more delicious than proving you are not too chicken to eat a beer can. Their half-pound burger patties, meanwhile, come with zesty toppings such as Smokehouse chili, blue cheese, and frizzled onions. On weekends, the barn-esque dining room and outdoor patio transform into a bustling bar, with live music from local bands and house specialty drinks, such as lemonade infused with huckleberry vodka, or down-home punch, a mix of Jack Daniels, apricot brandy, orange juice and Sierra Mist.

The New York Times praised Tengda's Milford location—one of eight in a small regional chain—as "perfect for young-at-heart couples and groups," with a high-energy atmosphere bubbling around cuisine it called "very good." The chefs draw gustatory inspiration from China, Japan, and Thailand as they create their expansive menus of Pan-Asian fare, which include fiery stir-fries, grilled meats, and sushi and provide reading material for shy diners throughout a full meal. Moody red and yellow lights dapple sleek black tables and booths, and might occasionally catch knife-flipping and drink-slinging theatrics behind the sushi and cocktail bars.

As a child, Michele Stuart worked alongside her grandmother, peeling fruit, crimping dough, and assisting in other tasks to create decadent pies. Before her grandmother passed away, Michele vowed to make her pies famous. It's safe to say she has made good on that promise. Since founding Michele's Pies in 2007, her creations have won 27 national awards, and have garnered praise from outlets including the Food Network, QVC, and the New York Times. Her pies run the gamut from sweet to savory, and her display case also shines with handmade cookies, tea breads, cheesecakes, and other baked goods.

The sandwich sages at Calise's construct handheld dining masterpieces and freshly prepared meals employing homemade soups and sauces, produce, and salads. Like karaoke night at the United Nations, the Main Street Attraction sandwich blends disparate ingredients, including cucumbers, avocado, roasted red peppers, shredded carrots, and pesto mayonnaise ($6.25). Wrap a tongue around a grilled vegetable and fresh mozzarella panini, which bridges the gap between two slices of Terranova Bakery bread ($6.95). Hot lunch offerings satisfy hunger pangs with items such as the sausage-and-pepper sandwich ($6.60) or the classic Reuben and fries ($6.95). Calise's also offers a daily dinner-preparation service to lessen the tension-related stress created by watching Speed 2: Cruise Control ($25 for dinner for two).

Chicken entrees at Mumbai Times traverse both familiar and foreign territory. There's the ubiquitous chicken tikka masala, but also chicken chutneywala, prepped with curried mango and mint, and chicken makmura, a traditional Calcutta Jewish dish with almonds and raisins. Yet, the chefs ensure that the chicken's origins are far from unknown?any chicken dish can be made with free-range, on-the-bone poultry for a small fee. In fact, free-range chicken grilled in the tandoori oven is a chef's specialty. It's but one of many dishes on a menu that spans India's northern and southern regions. To complement mainstays of vindaloo and rogan josh, the list boasts zesty kebabs and exotic sauces, such as the coconut tamarind variant found in the goan fish curry. An expansive vegetarian segment features bindi masala sasuralwali, or, as the accompanying text puts it, "okra you would eat at your in-laws' house." For those who'd rather scope out their food in advance, a weekday lunch or weekend brunch buffet that takes place beyond the restaurant's mosaic archways hosts a sprawl of platters. The lunch buffet includes a glass of wine, whereas the brunch buffet comes with champagne, a better fizzy morning drink than seltzer coffee.
