Most of downtown Greensboro’s food milieu lands somewhere between fine dining and comfort. The recent addition of the Worx, with that exact mixture, presents a quandary: Do the denizens of Greensboro need another restaurant and bar if it will only serve the same purpose as Natty Greene’s or Gray’s Tavern?....

As a huge fan of “The Sopranos,” I’ve long idealized the concept of an authentic Italian meat market.

And in a lot of ways, it was. This was back in 2003. Hillman had just opened the place, what I considered at the time to be one of the only outposts of true New York-style pizza in the Triad. I was working for a different paper, in a very different role....

Down in the Crescent City, the barricades have gone up along the parade routes; the hotels, bars and restaurants prepare for an influx of humans so great it can only be estimated by measuring the garbage they generate....

Familiarity is a major part of the appeal of the place. It’s easy to remember the location, considering that the restaurant is named after the street on which it lies. I made my first visit to North Point Grill at the bidding of a source, a tough, big-hearted Occupy Winston-Salem regular, who let me interview him while he feasted on tilapia....
