Free pizza, new menus, discounts

Go to any Charlotte Donatos between 5 and 8 p.m. July 20 and show them you have a Donatos phone number saved in your cell phones, and you'll get a free medium one-topping pizza -- if you're among the first 300 people at each of the 16 area stores.

Sunset Grille now serves Sunday brunch, including a "welcome basket" of cinnamon fritters and a menu that includes Lowcountry shrimp and grits and "the Big Fat Hot Brown" (a breakfast sandwich here, made with house-roasted turkey, bacon, tomatoes, fried eggs and gravy). Also new: Las Ramblas and Bar Barcelona nights each Monday and Tuesday, in which the restaurant, which was formerly Las Ramblas, brings back 10 to 15 of the most popular items from that tapas/Spanish/etc. menu, and offers some half-price bottles of Spanish wines. 2400 Park Road; 704-335-8444.

On the new menu from new chef Anoosh Shariat at Mez: summer gazpacho with cucumber and avocado relish; seared tuna with ginger and lemongrass French toast; a variety of flatbreads; herb-roasted lamb chops with caponata; grilled Scottish salmon with asparagus and more. 210 E.
