Oakleaf restaurant to open May 16 at Chatham Mills

Oakleaf, a new farm-to-table restaurant, may be open by May 16 at Pittsboro's Chatham Mills complex.

Chef-owner Brendan Cox, who most recently worked at Peak City Grill, describes the restaurant as "progressive American" with a farm-to-table focus. The menu will change every day. Cox and his wife, a native of Sanford, are excited about opening in Pittsboro.

"Chatham County is one of the few counties where land is turning back to farmland," he said. "It seemed a natural fit for us."

The 2,800-square-foot restaurant will have 64 table seats and eight seats at the bar. It will be located at 480 Hillsboro St., Suite 500, Pittsboro, near Chatham Marketplace.

Pint Night at Peak City Grill

Hophead alert! Monday night is Pint Night at Peak City Grill in Apex. Tonight's host is local brewer LoneRider Brewing Company, which will be offering tastes of Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen and Bootleg Brown, an American style brown ale. Pints of the LoneRider selections (as well as BullDog ESB from Aviator Brewing Company, another local brewer) will go for $3.

What to eat with your beer, you ask? Good question, and chef Doug Joyce has a suggestion. Pint Night happens to represent the "Barley" half of Beef and Barley Night at Peak City Grill. Tonight, the beef half of that formula is the chef's bistro steak bordelaise with thin cut French fries over rye toast points, served with a salad for $19.95.
