Hayes Gourmets’ professional pastry artist Jim Hayes envelops households with the wafting aromas of freshly baked, handcrafted pies and cookies. Nuts and chocolate chips jewel the crust of the pecan pie, and the toasted coconut bedecked coconut cream pie lends patrons ample ammunition against a clown ambush. Satisfy sugar chompers on an apple pie with a traditional crust or streusel topping, or supplement an otherwise dull gallon of 2% milk with an assortment of 12 chocolate-chip, oatmeal raisin, or sugar cookies.
When sisters Carrol Ann and Tammy took over Roosters Daytime Cafe in spring of 2011, their aim wasn't a total overhaul of the eatery, but rather a subtle touchup. That's why the menu still offers homestyle breakfast and lunch favorites, such as chocolate chip pancakes and burgers. But that's in addition to healthier options, such as the greek omelet with spinach, tomatoes, and feta, or grilled veggie paninis. Carrol Ann and Tammy have also opened a new business under the umbrella of Roosters: Classy Cakes. Here, they craft customized cakes, pies, and other desserts.
At Chillin the Most, chef Steve Brust begets a spread of hearty, refined American eats mixed in with what the restaurant calls "HealthyLicious" options. Inside three separate dining areas–each outfitted with a different atmosphere, and different music–visitors take on grilled ahi tuna, or grilled cheese sandwiches bolstered by beer-braised shredded short ribs. A wide drink selection headlined by 24 beers on tap accompanies meals, as does live entertainment throughout the week including dance parties and live bands.
Only a short burger's toss from the Atlantic Ocean, Locals Restaurant & Bar puts a contemporary spin on pub staples amid the glow of 15 plasma TVs. Corrugated dividers are strewn with twinkling string lights, which illuminate clam-studded pastas, fish 'n' chips, and artisanal flatbreads topped with gourmet ingredients such as truffle sauce, goat cheese, and honeydew melon. A full bar brims with fresh oysters and clams to awaken the palate for succulent morsels of filet mignon and lobster tail on the outdoor patio. Beneath a thatched roof in the tiki bar, 30 beers flow from the tap, filling steins with a wealth of suds rivaled only by a soap baron's bank vault.
