In this week's Pitch, Charles Ferruzza dines on a feast for the eyes at Coal Vines. The Dallas-based pizzeria recently appeared on the Plaza and has fast become a place to see and be seen -- and eat a little, too.
Glimpse the pretty diners and dishes in photographer Sabrina Staires' slideshow, and find out which entree is as delicious as an old family recipe in Charles' review.

Though a child of the '80s, I completely understand why brunch was all the rage in the decadent disco days of the 1970s and its present-day revival. As Charles Ferruzza points out in this week's Pitch, there's really no better way to keep the party going after last call. The afternoon meal also has curative powers: a good omelet or small stack can act as a warming salve on a bad case of the too-much-booze.
These pictures -- taken by photographer Angela C. Bond -- have me ready for the weekend, where bad decisions breed good brunches. Check out photos from Blue Grotto, M&S Grill and Boozefish and tell us your favorite spot to get brunch in the comments.
I have friends who still insist that the best pizza they ever tasted was that doughy, greasy square slab of cheese-topped garbage that they were served in their high school cafeteria. Although, thanks to years of therapy, I've effectively blocked out almost every possible memory from my high school days, I can still remember that horrible pizza. I could never have eaten anything quite so visually unappetizing.
But I did, come to think of it. Before the modern plague of tasteless frozen pizzas infested grocery freezer cases, there was Chef Boyardee's make-it-at-home boxed pizza "kit" that was sort of a less-greasy variation of the crappy product sold in high school. It looked and tasted pretty awful, too.
