Who says you have to go to Italy to get bona fide pizza? At Brezza Cucina, slice into incredible pizzas, gnocchi and other pastas, paired with tasty wines in an airy lighthearted setting. Spot Southern-influenced flavors in dishes like the simple roasted fish and a hint of California influence with clean eats like the chicken and kale. Desserts are conservatively sweet and divine with offerings like their pear compote, gelato or an authentic espresso. Linger awhile at the bar and lounge area that seats 45 before you say ciao bella.
Madre + Mason
If Latin-inspired Southern food sounds like the perfect combination head over to Madre + Mason! Pull up a chair at the bar and order one of their mouthwatering sandwiches paired with a craft cocktail to fully experience the ambiance. You would be hard pressed to find incredible Southern-Latin mashups like meatball with jalepeño and tequila gravy anywhere else. Plus the colorful and rustic surroundings feel so casually chic you wont’ want to leave. Be prepared for generous servings here just like the kind any good madre (Spanish for mother) would delve out.
Wine lovers won’t be able to keep their corks on while dining at Bones. The wine list here is extensive – a 20,000 bottle gallery anyone? You’re bound to find one to pair with your Maine lobster or that perfect steak, and by steaks we mean award-winning steaks and chops, too. Seared tuna with lime and crab stuffed trout will also pique your interest. Side dishes play ode to Southern cuisine with yummy staples like grit fritters and truffle butter mash. Definitely put this one on your fine dining list.
Sure, there are plenty of places to chow down a burger but we like ours here at Zinburger. Here the setting is sleek and energetic and the burgers are gourmet. Toppers include options from American cheese to Z chili. Yes, you can get fries with that – parmesan encrusted fries, sweet potato fries, or zucchini fries. Pair your meal with any of 21 wines you can order by the glass or one of their decadent milkshakes like the tiramisu shake. If you’re a light-weight eater at dinner time, don’t fret. The market fresh salads are no after-thought with options that include seared ahi and Chinese chicken and a variety mixed of greens.
