We miss Ziggy’s, the international food market in the Crossroads Center, at the corner of St. Francis Drive and Cerrillos Road. But Ziggy Rzig, the market’s former owner, can now be found next door at Omira Bar & Grill, a fun concept restaurant modeled on the Brazilian churrascaria. Here, servers with loaded grilling skewers parade between diners in something of a marching mixed grill. A small lamp on your table, turned on and off with a touch of your hand, lets servers know that you’re ready for more.

There’s a salad bar, too, though it’s not like those found on most buffets. Small platters of prepared dishes ranging from kale and beet salad to pastas are presented in the chilled portion, and there’s also a steam table offering hot dishes. Your dinner price includes all the meats you’ll let your server — called “carvers” here — bring you plus the salad bar. Or you can make a meal from the salad bar alone, an especially good choice at lunch. If you go away hungry, it’s your own fault.
