Eric's LaPatisserie Café sates the morning and afternoon eat reflexes with fresh-baked, oven-hot pastries and gourmet stuffed sandwiches and paninis. Fresh croissants emerge from steaming hot ovens ($3), and toasted bagels remain crisp even while bearing gobs of the eatery’s famous labor-inducing cream cheese ($2). Afternoon appetites, meanwhile, can be sated with a grilled herb-chicken sandwich ($6.25) or a shrimp-and-seafood salad ($5.50).
Viva Bene Ristorante’s culinary gurus combine fresh ingredients with classic techniques to create an extensive menu of artful Italian, Mediterranean, and seafood dishes. In the dining room, servers set plates of grilled calamari and chicken capicola atop white-clothed tables. Wall sconces illuminate paintings that depict sailboats and Italian countrysides as idyllic as puppies barking at mountains. A rustic, expansive island bar lit by low-hanging pendant lamps surrounds gleaming bottles, which watch over patrons as they check email on Viva Bene's free WiFi.
At Blush Yogurt Cafe, patrons can have their cake and eat it too, enjoying more than 30 flavors of kosher frozen yogurt that contains no gluten, fat, cholesterol, or preservatives. Flavors run the gamut from caramel and watermelon to pumpkin and green tea, each of which is sprinkled with up to 20 toppings such as coconut, brownie bites, and honeydew melon. The staff also stuffs pork and tofu into spring rolls, slathers ham with cranberry sauce in a wrap, and handpicks the seaweed salad’s contents during annual trips to Seaweed World.
By the eatery's own admission, the food at The People's Kitchen "is not fussy." But one look at the menu, which matches wines with such succulent eats as crispy polenta with roasted red pepper and parmesan and hearty lamb pie filled with roasted leeks and shiitake mushrooms, demonstrates the quality of its ingredients and the thoughtfulness that goes into its preparation. Continuing in this vein, The People’s Kitchen's in-house charcuterie program butchers and dry ages meat on site.
The same attention to detail pours into the drinks at Still & Stir, a cocktail bar featuring classic and signature drinks made from a wide selection of top-shelf liquor. Order a Bicycle Clown and you'll be putting your trust in a Principle Bartender, who will tailor-make a new cocktail on the spot.
A warm orange and red light illuminates Ritual, tinting its brick-accented walls and exotic statues an inviting ruby. Flickering candles and the glow of flat-screen televisions add to the romantic, yet contemporary atmosphere, where the trendy decor is rivaled only by an eye-catching menu of Mediterranean fusion cuisine. Globetrotting meals commence with small plates of chocolate-dipped applewood bacon or waygu beef, which diners sear over a hot rock or the grill they keep in their wallets. Chicken marsala and bacon-wrapped filet mignon represent a portion of the more traditional entrees, but dishes stretch as far as the bounds of the chef's imagination, including an award-winning seared duck breast double-coated with crushed cocoa beans and a hazelnut-chocolate demi-glace.
