This cozy Italian restaurant offers both pasta and pizza, so no matter your mood, you’ll be well-satisifed.¬† Everything is made in house, down to the dough and even the mozzarella, and that incredibly¬†fresh taste elevates the food to mouthwatering.¬† The carfioci pizza comes with artichoke hearts – something you don’t even know you’ll enjoy, but if you want a heartier slice, try La Nonna, topped with proscuitto¬†and arugula.¬† If you’re hoping for pasta, Antica Forma knows how to do alfredo right – no bland, watery sauce here!

King Tut and Dinosaur Cafe

This small restaurant does a mean chicken-fried steak.¬† While they also serve delicious breakfasts, if you’re coming here for dinner, enjoy some red meat.¬† The salmon is another good choice, perfectly grilled and light enough for warm evenings in the late summer or early fall.¬† Their dessert options change daily but are always decadent.

If you’re looking for something spicy, Cafe Rio cannot be missed.¬† In cold weather or on rainy days, you may want to¬†opt for the comforting tortilla soup,¬†with chicken and cheese.¬† Their enchiladas are spicy and gooey, drenched in sauce, and served with rice and beans.¬† For Mexican food, Cafe Rio is a must-visit.

Swain Brothers

The cajun mahi mahi is to-die-for!¬† It’s light and spicy, the perfect accompaniment for the hearty steak it comes with.¬† This steakhouse delivers on flavor, so start your meal with the fried green beans and make sure to¬†save room for dessert.¬† This is where you should go to break your diet!
