Steak 48
4425 Sharon Rd.
Steak 48 had a buzzy December opening at Apex SouthPark, and this upscale steakhouse with locations in Phoenix, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Houston is worth the hype.
Try This: Bone-In Ribeye topped with black truffle sautéed Maine lobster

Little Mama’s Italian
4521 Sharon Rd. 
Think of this eatery as the prequel to Mama Ricotta’s, with family recipes and scratch-made pastas and mozzarella. Settle into one of the dining rooms with a plate of pappardelle or cozy up at the “Mozz Bar” and watch the chefs at work.
Try This: Penne alla Vodka
