Taste the Yucatan at Mike Isabella’s lively cantina, where the decor is as colorful as the food. The four-course dinner sampler ($35.17) starts with salsa roja or guacamole with chips, then moves on to taco salad, grilled corn-on-the-cob with cotija, or your choice of tacos (chicken, carnitas, veggie, lengua, shrimp or huevos). Entrée options include enchiladas, spinach-mushroom quesadilla or tuna ceviche. You can end the evening with flan or coconut cookies.
Let chef Jennifer Carroll’s prix-fixe dinner menu (available in three or four courses for $35.17 or $45.17) turn a weekday dinner into something far less than mundane. Choose from options such as potato-leek soup, chicken liver mousse, cod croquettes, moules frites, beef carpaccio, crispy lamb cassoulet or roasted half chicken. And don’t skip dessert. Try the blueberry clafouti, chocolate soufflé with hazelnut ice cream, or the cheese course with plum mostarda, fresh fruit and honeycomb.
The three-course menu features choices such as beet-walnut salad, a soup du jour, grilled salmon with mushroom cream sauce, braised veal cheeks with seasonal vegetables, flan and capricho de chocolate (dark chocolate brick with ice cream). Lunch is $27.17; dinner is $37.17.
Get your sushi fix at the Lee Harrison Shopping Center. The four-course dinner special ($37.17) includes a choice of appetizer (edamame, seaweed salad, shumai or tempura veggies); miso soup or house salad; three sushi rolls; and ice cream or sorbet.
The three-course lunch ($22.17) at this hip ramen bar in Ballston includes fare such as bean sprout salad, spicy tuna roll, crispy shrimp and three types of ramen (chicken, pork or veggie) with all the glorious toppings, plus mochi ice cream or lemon ricotta donuts to wrap things up. Dinner ($35.17) kicks it up to four courses with additional choices such as dry-fried wings, roasted-pork spring rolls and chilled soba noodles.
