A traditional layout of kempt bent-grass fairways and greens, Wedgwood Country Club's gently rolling 18-hole course wends through a dense thicket of trees, bunkers, and ponds. Measuring 7,100 yards from the farthest tees, the par-72 course eases clubbers into the round with a relatively open front nine before testing their accuracy and squirrel diplomacy on a tight, tree-lined back nine. With four sets of tees, the course presents a par-hunting test to all players, from beginners to those who can wallop a drive more than 300 yards.

As a young girl, Chef Kim's love of cooking was born as she watched her aunts and grandmother craft huge family meals. Today, at Chef Kim's Kitchen, she creates meals for customers who don't have the time or the inclination to cook.

When the Romano family set out to move from Italy to the United States in 1963, Antonietta knew there was something she had to do?even though she was just a child. Before they left, she sat down and transcribed all of her grandmother's recipes so she could still enjoy her cooking, even an ocean away. Today, she's still cooking with the Old World recipes and classic ingredients, but with her name above the door at Antonietta?s Restaurant & Bar.
Her housemade sauces?crafted from imported tomatoes and fresh herbs?blanket dishes of gnocchi sorrento, tortellini with prosciutto, and ravioli, but the vast repertoire of pasta options is met by an equally long list of meat dishes, including filet mignon, porterhouse steak, and milk-fed veal. Seafood spreads of shrimp, scallops, clams, and lump crabmeat make patrons feel as though they've raided a mermaid's pantry. To conclude feasts, she also appeals to her patrons' sweet sides with a roster of handmade cheesecakes and cannoli.

Ludovico's proprietor Don Sozio and his two children and granddaughters whip up a menu of Italian sandwiches, pizzas, and homemade entrees using ingredients imported directed from Italy. Hot sandwiches, including the chicken parmigiana sandwich ($7.45) and grilled veggie panini ($7.35), crammed with fresh eggplant, roasted pepper, and broccoli rabe, are best bets for diners looking for a bite of home-cooked goodness or bait for a mozzarella monster trap. Original recipes revive classic comestibles, such as the stuffed portobello mushrooms ($8.99/lb.), grilled with crabmeat and spinach stuffing and capped with a hip new shredded-cheese wig. Snack-sized twice-baked potatoes ($6.99/lb.) compete for diners' affections with mouthfuls of gelato, desserts, and freshly brewed lattes and cappuccino.
