Asian fusion cuisine pulls in the crowds at Sukho Thai. This is nothing but good news if you’re craving Thai-style baguette toast for lunch or jumbo shrimp pho for dinner. Open from noon until midnight six days a week, this establishment is as adept at midday rice bowls and it is at providing a late-night sushi fix. The menu runs to more than 100 items including curry, hand-rolled sushi, Chinese classics and plenty of specialties. Speedy service, friendly staff, fine presentation. We love it.
Whether you call it a ji-ro, yee-ro, or ger-o, we can all agree that the gyros at Athens Restaurant are nostimo – Greek for delicious. Appetizers such as saganaki (bubbling fried cheese) paired with bifteki (burgers) will transport your taste buds from Ohio to Odysseus in one bite. Meanwhile, staples such as pita, Greek salad and baklava are all present and correct, but locals come for the daily specials such as moussaka on Thursdays and Greek meatballs on Fridays.
Basil is a key ingredient in the cooking sent out at this family-run favorite, hence the name. On a menu as long and magnificent as the Great Wall, you can expect stacks of different stir-fries, unctuous Thai soups and curries, zingy sushi rolls and spicy Szechuan winners. There’s also an intriguing – and delicious – house specialty of coconut spaghetti. The experience comes amid elegant interiors, from bare-brick walls to folding screens that provide a welcome sense of intimacy.
