Hawthorne's New York Pizza & Bar's dough-slingers serve a piping-hot menu of pasta, heroes, and hand-tossed pizzas, earning a 2011 Charlotte Magazine Voters' Choice award for best pizza. Edible disks are spooned with sauce and configured for specialty deliciousness with such options as the luau pizza⎯a blend of pineapple, bacon, smoked pulled pork, and caramelized onions wrapped up in a grass skirt ($9–$18)⎯and the Sicilian's thick, square crust clad only in mozzarella ($14.50). Herbs and gorgonzola cheese roam across hills of pasta and valleys stuffed with chicken or sausage in the gorgonzola pasta ($10.50), and the philly cheesesteak hero ($8.85) laces standard white american cheese with the illicit flavors of chipotle mayo. Chefs layer eggplant rollentini ($11) with a blend of mozzarella, ricotta, and romano cheeses before spackling it with pesto and oven-baking it to monumental deliciousness.
Not only do canines and their owners come to Dog Bar to socialize, but human visitors can also order a round of beer.

Hailing from Texas, blues-rock virtuoso Carolyn Wonderland regales audiences with her precise plucking and soulful pipes. The multi-instrumentalist also pounds out piano riffs and exudes brassy gusts from her trumpet, building songs around a powerful voice that she acquired in a former life as an auctioneer. On national tours, Wonderland has shared stage space with such notable acts as Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, and Robert Earl Keen while garnering comparisons to Janis Joplin and her evil yet talented arch nemesis Jonis Japlin.
Revolution Pizza & Ale House keeps its menu local by relying on fresh local pork and hand-selected produce, as well as stocking North Carolina craft beers. Revolution affirms its commitment to fresh food through the Italian phrase "Produzione Propria"—meaning "made in-house"—on its logo, along with an image of Demeter, the Greek goddess of harvest. All dishes are made from scratch on the premises, from the freshly baked pizza dough to the Mediterranean-style dishes such as eastern BBQ pork sandwiches, mushroom fettuccine, and housemade fresh mozzarella and focaccia bread. New beers are added to the mix weekly, with choices such as Big Boss Monkey Bizz-Ness, a Belgian-style ale from Raleigh that packs a Donkey Kong-sized punch with its 9% ABV and propensity to leave guests talking about their secret banana hoards.
