    Joy Luck Buffet
    Though it is indeed a standard-issue Chinese buffet, right down to the pans of quivering Jell-O squares, Joy Luck also offers a menu of traditional Szechuan cuisine: a roster of meat, seafood and vegetable dishes liberally seasoned with chiles and Szechuan peppercorn. The latter is like no other food; along with a floral aroma and lemony flavor, Szechuan pepper imparts a tingling sensation to the mouth. Here it amps up such dishes as spicy beef (a soup) or the dried-fried chicken to levels of exquisite intensity. Everything from tripe to kidney to intestines is on the menu here. Be sure to try the hot-and-sour noodles, a spicy, soul-salving soup.
    twinOak Wood-Fired Fare
    The centerpiece of twinOak Wood Fired Fare is a brick oven that’s used to cook just about everything the kitchen turns out. The restaurant — which takes its name from twin-sibling owners Curt and Casey Friedrichs and the logs that fuel the oven — focuses on pizzas: thin-crust pies both classic (tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil) and “signature” (the “Gringo Star,” for example, with chorizo and jalapeño). The handful of appetizers (hot wings) and entrées (steaks, salmon) on the menu that aren’t members of the pizza food group benefit from the woodsmoke kick the oven delivers.
