    The burger is absolutely insane. Their pastas are fresh and prepared traditionally and the lollipop kale is enough to keep you coming back regularly.

    Although the menu is vegetable-intensive, it is far, far from butter-free, but Ray's, named in honor of the late film producer Ray Stark, may be the restaurant that this plaza deserves. Read more

    Cool weather offerings might include his haute version of a chile relleno: a poblano pepper, charred to black, stuffed with zippy housemade venison chorizo, and napped in a suave corn sauce.
