With an open kitchen and open seating, Café Asia has the feel of a fancy cafeteria. The menu takes diners on a trip through the Far East; diners can explore the tastes of Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Japan. Of this well-varied menu, we personally recommend the sushi. They offer a great selection of specialty rolls as well as the classic favorites.
Few restaurants at any price are as consistently delicious as this Vietnamese star. The 100-plus-item menu covers a lot of ground including pho, rice crepes, broken rice dishes, mixed grills, anddaily fresh seafood specials, including a plate of big fried soft-shells draped with slivers of ginger and fried lettuce.
Ray’s the Steaks
This casual spot pulls off a neat trick—managing to be
both a casual neighborhood bistro and a prime-time steakhouse. Owner Michael
Landrum wanders the packed dining room chatting up customers who rave over his
steaks--farm-raised, corn-fed Hereford and Angus from Iowa, Nebraska, and
Washington state—and his gentle prices.
Prepare to indulge in unique Greek-inspired dishes,
skillfully crafted by talented Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. All dishes are served
mezze style—in small plates, but with portions large enough to share. Cava’s mezze-style
dining inspires conversation and laughter at the table. The dim candle-lighting
and black and white family photos adorning Cava’s charming brick interior walls
creates a welcoming atmosphere.
