First place pork (and more)

Gallery won the regional fine dining award in the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' "Best Dish in NC" contest. The entire three-course menu isn't still available, but included such items as Chapel Hill Creamery's Thunder Mountain Swiss, a black walnut-smoked heritage pork dish marinated in Junior Johnson cherry moonshine (pictured), and Baucom's Best short rib with local blueberry and peach barbecue sauce. The last two will be on the fall menu, which begins Oct. 1. 10000 Ballantyne Commons Parkway; 704-248-4100.
