  Critics, upstate: Earth, air, fire water—it’s all at Soffritto Italian Grill. The restaurant scores big points for the stone hearth and fireplace and towering waterfall alone. But all the beef, veal, chicken and seafood classics are offered, as well as fun pastas such as ravioli in pesto. Trust us: You’ll feel like you’re dining a world away from Newark. (1130 Capitol Trail, Newark, 455-1101)
  Beginning with the glowing orange tones in the front lounge, you quickly realize Stingray Sushi Bar + Asian Latino Grill is as much a treat to the eyes as the taste buds. Hanging high above the gargantuan, custom-made sushi bar are hand-blown neon lights shaped like jellyfish, crafted in the French Quarter. They simply pop against the black ceiling. Like its sister restaurant, Mikimotos, Stingray has paintings and prints depicting the Ultraman and Marine Boy characters of the ’60s Japanese TV. Carefully placed spotlights brighten pockets of the rooms. The pièces de résistance are glowing, color-changing LED stingray patterns embedded in the sushi bar’s countertop. Even the Stingray sign out front was cut from steel with a water laser. At night when it’s backlit, it creates a halo-like effect. (59 Lake Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-6476)
