Cheesecake Factory
Over 250 items grace the menu at The Cheesecake Factory. From their Glamburgers® to “super” food salads, there are options for just about anybody. Their Baja Chicken tacos feature soft corn tortillas, filled with spicy chicken, cheese, tomato, avocado, onion, chipotle and cilantro, served with rice and beans. They also offer Steak Diane, medallions of Certified Angus beef covered with black peppercorns and a rich mushroom wine sauce, served with mashed potatoes and grilled onions for a hearty meal.

BJ’s Brewhouse
You may not expect a brewhouse to have everything from pizza and pasta to “enlightened” dishes; that is, lighter fare for the calorie-conscious. The New Orleans Jambalaya features blackened chicken breast, shrimp, chicken-andouille sausage, bell peppers, white onions and tomatoes in a spicy sauce, all over rice pilaf. The Seared Ahi Salad combines its namesake with baby field greens, Napa cabbage, romaine and red bell peppers with rice wine vinaigrette, tomatoes, avocado, pickled cucumbers, cilantro, wasabi, crispy wonton strips and green onions. Of course, don’t forget their impressive variety of beer!

The Malone’s menu isn’t lengthy by any means, but it was designed to be diverse, with salads, seafood, pasta, sandwiches, chicken and pork, all in addition to their signature steaks. The Grilled Salmon Picatta features lemon, capers, artichoke hearts and white wine-lemon butter sauce over fresh, homemade Tagliolini pasta. For something truly special, try The Anthony Davis Celebrity Cut, a 10 oz. Prime Center Cut New York strip, served with blackened jumbo shrimp and Creole butter. You can even order from Aqua Sushi’s menu for a great appetizer!

Saul Good
This menu pulls inspiration from all over. Take their Parisian pizza: Dijon cream sauce, Brie and Granny Smith apples, finished with a drizzle of honey. Meanwhile, their All Natural Choice Ribeye Steak is as American as it gets with a 10 oz. grass fed ribeye, lightly seasoned and grilled, served up with mashed potatoes and the vegetable of the day. Enjoy a glass of wine or a signature cocktail while trotting the globe through this fun menu.
