Buona Forchetta

The Neapolitan pros are expanding, this time joining forces with BiCE chef Mario Cassineri to turn out pizzas alongside pasta. One oven will be dedicated to gluten-free pizzas.
2865 Sims Road

 

Fireside by The Patio

From the team behind The Patio on Goldfinch comes an ode to fire-themed food. All dishes are grilled or smoked over a flame, and with most of the seating outdoors, it feels like an upscale barbecue.
2855 Perry Road

 

Breakfast Republic

Indulgence is the theme at this a.m.-focused spot. Dishes include s’mores French toast, chicken wing bowls, and mint chocolate chip pancakes.
2865 Sims Road

 

Soda & Swine

The meatball eatery has more room to spread its wings in this second location. The spacious venue includes a slick cocktail bar, seating by a fireplace, and a foosball table to dine on if you’re feeling playful—or competitive.
