#1 – Sushi and Yakisoba

Everything is fresh and traditional at this authentic Japanese eatery, from the sushi rolls and teriyaki bowls to the yakisoba, ramen and udon noodles. The open concept kitchen is set off by stylish décor for an unforgettable atmosphere, and there is plenty of beer, wine and sake.

#2 – Vietnamese Fusion

The flavors come together in fresh ways at this stylish eatery. Naan Mi is a twist on the traditional Báhn Mi — tandoori naan stuffed with hangar steak, sticky pork belly or tandoori chicken. The Kimcheez features house kimchi with buttermilk cheddar and smoked gouda served on sourdough.

#3 – Country Comfort Food

Nestled among acres of rolling orchards, The Cider House is happily off the beaten path. This charming little cafe serves up great comfort food — everything from coconut shrimp to a brisket sandwich, and plenty of sides (try the onion rings or 3-bean salad). Save room for fried pie or ice cream (or both!).

#4 – Chicken and Dumplings

Put some “South in your mouth” at Southern Charm, where finger lickin’ meals are served with Southern hospitality. Start off with some fried green tomatoes or pickles, then add in a hearty Southern entrée (such as chicken & dumplings, fried catfish or popcorn shrimp). Wash it all down with some peach tea and homemade biscuits.

#5 – Chester’s Specials

Great food, craft beer, unique decor, friendly staff … what else could you ask for? How about some inspired apps (killer wings, smoked trout fish dip), beefy sandwiches (mesquite burger, turkey BLT) and some serious specials (bacon wrapped pork loins, chicken burrito bowl), plus a great selection of wines and a full bar.
