Mingles Martini Bar & Grill

Overtaking Ginger Bay Café's old space, Mingles offers lunch, dinner, and live music in a setup separated by bamboo-stick-printed curtains: one side's a red-walled dining room with b&w photos of Elvis, Diana Ross, and Bob Marley, the other, a lounge w/ red leather couches and metallic high-tops. Snack on Shrimp Pizzettas, or get serious with a fire-roasted salmon burger, pan-seared scallops w/ citrus-sauced Julienne vegetables, or braised oxtails w/ jasmine rice and butter beans, which goes down real easy, just don't tell it that, or you'll get sooo beat up.
