Arts Incarnate

Through all genres of the fine, visual, and performing arts, the mission of Arts Incarnate is to seek and experience Beauty, Truth, and Justice through the Arts. Formerly known as the 292 N. Gallery, Arts Incarnate was developed out of a desire that The Church of the Incarnation had to connect its people to art and bring art into the church building. It is the church's belief that the long history of art in the church rests on one basic value: the church needs art (and artists) and artists need the church. We recognize that art does not have to be overtly religious to draw us closer to God. Drawing ourselves in, exposing ourselves, or simply sitting with art that expresses beauty, truth, and justice inherently brings us closer to our Creator. more

Bella Gelato & Pastries

Situated across the street from Bella Luna Wood-Fired Pizza is their sister restaurant, Bella Gelato & Pastries. As the name suggests, gelato is the star of the show. It's made by hand, on site, using milk from Mount Crawford Creamery. In addition to gelato, the bread is baked daily, an espresso and coffee bar features locally roasted beans, and the pastry case is filled with house made croissants and desserts. It made be hard to choose, but you can't go wrong with a seasonally flavored scoop of gelato in one of their waffle cones! more

Bella Luna Wood-Fired Pizza

Neapolitan-inspired, thin-crusted pizza is baked at 900 degrees in a wood-fired oven and topped with artisanal ingredients locally sourced by nearby farms.

The bar features a wide selection of local microbrews and hard ciders on tap, in addition to choice wines and artisan cocktails.

Benny Sorrentino’s Pizza

Benny’s is known for their incredible 28” pies, which they claim are large enough to feed two whole families. Not to worry for those who can’t handle such an enormous meal, they also sell pizza by the slice, although the slices alone are so large they have to be served on two plates. Their menu features classics like cheese, pepperoni, and sausage, while their specials spice things up with new and fresh offerings like pulled pork and jalapeños or garlic mushroom. They also offer a wide variety of drinks ranging from every soda imaginable, lemonades, teas, and juices to a list of domestic beers and ever-changing local ones. more

Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack

Walking into this restaurant feels just a little bit like walking into a funhouse, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Chandeliers made out of Mickey’s grenade bottles, old doors hanging on the walls, and a rubber chicken standing guard over the bar are just a few of the things that makes Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack so unique. Known and loved for their famous Sticky Nuggs, fresh fried chicken served with one of their delicious sauces in a Chinese takeout box, Billy Jacks knows food. Here you will find a variety of choices that includes salads, fresh oysters, and house-made donuts. Every Thursday is “Nugg” day where their signature dish is only $4 — not a deal to miss!
