For a quick casual stop, check out this sushi joint! The small outside may not initially draw you in, but the inside is spacious and modern. The service is fast and the food is extremely fresh. Great portions for the price.

Honorable mention:  Lion King Roll

Burgers: Lunchbox Laboratory

Check out the vintage lunch boxes and beakers hung up around this restaurant. Their unique drinks fit the area (i.e. Seahawk Susan Melon Ball) and come served in beakers. They also offer a military discount of 20%. With great flavored patties and soft brioche buns you’re sure to be impressed!

Honorable mention: DORK

Italian: Il Lucano Ristorante Italiano

Extensive gluten free options which is perfect for those looking! The chef offers an option for you to tell him exactly what you want. Each table has a bottle of wine on display and vinaigrette for bread dipping. Ambiance and food, equally great!

Honorable mention: Spumoni ice cream

Thai: Thai Pepper True Thai Kitchen

Only 3 months old, Thai Pepper is bringing in tons of folks per day. Higher prices but huge portions. With awesome spray paint on the walls, you’re sure to remember this joint. Pad Thai is tough to get spot on sometimes, but this restaurant holds the perfect mixture.

Honorable mention: Lemon Grass Chicken

Vietnamese: Pho Ever Wok

High quality pho and teriyaki, along with bubble tea. Bubble tea is somewhat rare to find at a Vietnamese restaurant, so if you’re craving it, check this place out! The meat is always hot and well marinated, no worries about under/over-cooked meat.

Honorable mention: Gyoza & Fried Roll

French: Citron European Bistro

With much more than escargot and frog legs, this menu is authentic and delicious. The food here is completely Instagram worthy as each dish is served with multiple color on the plate (vegetables, starch, meat/fish).

Honorable mention: crepe citron

Mongolian: Wok on Fire

Kids under 10 eat free. Each person is able to pile what they want in their bowl and watch the chefs make their meal in front of them. A great place to go when you crave noodles and veggies. Affordable and a ton of food.

Honorable Mention: Your own creation!
