This restaurant caters to lovers of Thai and Vietnamese fare, as well as diners who appreciate a cosmopolitan ambiance. The dining room boasts polished tile floors and lacquered hardwood seating.

Surf-and-turf lovers have an option, too: Flower Connection Combo, which includes shrimp, scallops, pork and vegetables served in a bowl made of fried wonton skins.
While the décor here is western, the fare is decidedly Japanese. Dozens of sushi selections are available, including the ever-popular California Roll. Tempura, that airy, deep-fried concoction the Japanese chefs create with such skill, can be found here, too, with selections including the unusual Yasai Tempura, a mix of onions, potatoes and squash and Tempura Ebi, focusing on jumbo shrimp and vegetables. For heartier fare, try stir-fried pork. Beer and wine are also available.
Salt-and-pepper-shakers are the theme at this simple restaurant that scatters those collectibles around the room. Devoted to plain and simple American food (if one defines that as a rib-sticking breakfast and luncheon sandwiches) Shakers has just fifty seats and keeps the fun going among its fifty diners with a staff that's always ready for a good laugh. Hearty, inexpensive food is the focus here, and it's breakfast that the restaurant does best. A full meal, whether it is quiche, blintzes, an omelet, or banana pancakes, will keep you going for hours and are served with plenty of coffee. The prices stay reasonable. For something really American, tuck into an order of fluffy biscuits topped with thick, creamy gravy.

All this is served in a classic pizzeria atmosphere, with lots of neon, formica and red-and-white-checked tablecloths.
