The Atlantic is the most ambitious raw seafood spot in Hampton Roads -- with great fried chicken

If you want to visit The Atlantic , you must go to Pacific Avenue. That ocean-spanning piece of whimsy suits not just the Oceanfront restaurant's broad ambitions, but also its contradictions.

How to make pancit, a Philippine take on Chinese fried noodles

As with many Philippine dishes, pancit has its roots in another culture, in this case, China. But these stir-fried noodles so far, so ordinary are given a distinctive Philippine flavour with the addition of sour ingredients, which are used liberally in the Southeast Asian nation's cuisine, and which brighten the taste of the dish, making it seem less heavy.

20 things to do for under $20 on Cape Cod

J. Paul's is a classic saloon with all the pertinent hallmarks (dark wood, reproduction gaslights, tin ceiling, checkered tablecloths, etc.). The bar itself is a bona fide antique that came out of a real Chicago saloon. Crab cakes and baby-back ribs are the standouts here; but don't overlook the salads, which are long on taste and innovation but not so low in calories. J. Paul's was the first restaurant opened by Capital Restaurant Concepts, a local company with a proven track record, so expect things to run pretty smoothly here. The raw bar, with four different types of oysters as well as clams and spiced shrimp, is a bit of a sleeper here. The desserts, which are all made inhouse and change frequently, are downright deadly. Come before 6:30 p.m. if you want to be seated without delay. On weekends the wait can be up to 45 minutes for a table. Also, while there's a nice children's menu available, come early if you're with the family. Things can get pretty lively here as the night wears on (and the brews keep pouring)."
