    Katie's Pizza & Pasta
    Katie Lee builds on the success of her popular Clayton pizzeria with her second effort, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta, in Rock Hill. Inspired by her time living in Florence, Italy, Lee aims to capture casual Italian osteria at her newest location, this time expanding the menu to include house-made pasta. Fans of the original outpost should rest assured that her signature pies feature prominently on the menu — a medley of butternut squash, figs, pancetta and goat cheese drizzled with balsamic encapsulates her style. For Neapolitan purists, however, the Margherita does not capture the classic. Pastas are equally hit or miss. Katie’s is at its best when it does classic pesto and meatballs, but the liberties it takes with carbonara fall flat. The charm of the place makes these inconsistencies more bearable, however. Lee has managed to take a plain, shotgun-style storefront in a strip mall and turn it into a cozy, shabby-chic space. The open kitchen and packed bar give the place a bustling energy, and the bar has a creative selection of Italian influenced craft cocktails while patrons wait amid the throngs of admirers for a table.
    King Louie's Empire Deli & Pizza
    The King Louie's in King Louie's Empire Deli & Pizza refers not to the late, much loved restaurant on Chouteau Avenue but an even older spot in Wood River, Illinois. Lou Rook Jr. (father of Annie Gunn’s chef Lou Rook III) founded that King Louie’s, and his sons Dave and Mike have opened this deli and by-the-slice pizza joint on Washington Avenue. Pizza slices are appropriately huge and blanketed in melted mozzarella. You can also order whole pies with the toppings of your choice, or you can choose one of the restaurant’s specialty pies. The deli menu features several sandwiches, including a classic Reuben, a stack of rare roast beef and a sort-of upscale cheesesteak featuring thinly sliced rib eye.
    Koken Art Factory
    The Koken Art Factory is a factory-sized blank slate, ready to be turned into the theme party palace of your dreams. This special-event mecca hosts a multitude of parties throughout the year, from Halloween monster bashes to Alice in Wonderland avant-art fetes. A few things are common at each Koken event: nude models slinking through the crowd clad only in body paint, live art, DJ's, live local or national musical acts, professional hula-hoop troops freewheeling, burlesque girls teasing the crowd into an uproar and plenty of beautiful people dolled up in their glad rags. No matter what the entertainment, there will be art, and there will be partying. And that's just how we like it.
    Kota Wood Fire Grill
    Though located directly across Grand Boulevard from the Fox Theatre, Kota Wood Fire Grill doesn't rely on Broadway kitsch and generic, crowd-pleasing chow. Instead the restaurant, from the same folks behind nearby Triumph Grill, is airy and attractive, with dishes that draw from Caribbean and Gulf Coast flavors. Seafood has a prominent place: mahi-mahi crusted with plantain and drizzled with a key-lime vinaigrette; shrimp and grits in a rich, garlicky barbecue sauce. Among meat entrées, the smoked pork chop, stuffed with an apple-fig chutney, is a standout.
