Since opening in the '70s, Magic Time Machine has entertained guests by one-upping ordinary themed restaurants with its costumed staff, who are required to double as improv comics. So be prepared for a good skewering with your meal. Every night is Halloween, here, as characters ranging from Disney favorites (such as Captain Jack Sparrow, Cinderella or Tinkerbell) to comic icons (such as Charlie Brown, Wonder Woman or Spider-Man) whisk trays of food to various themed booths and seating areas. Diners could end up seated in a school bus, a giant Jack-o-Lantern or a Tiki hut. Not surprisingly, Magic Time Machine is a favorite venue for kid birthday parties, but diners can also go for the "Roman Orgy" menu option with platters for four or more, among them brisket, ribs and fresh fruit. After 10 p.m., The Blue Lounge upstairs offers an adults-only escape from the non-smoking, family-friendly dining area downstairs by providing a full bar, lounge areas and a stage.
