Top of the Hill opens daily as a restaurant that has been voted "Best Place to Impress a Date," "Best Place to See and Be Seen," and "Best Outdoor Deck," among other awards. The locals frequent the Top for great food and brews, and visitors will find it highly recommended as a true taste of Chapel Hill. Patrons indulge in an eclectic selection of Baked Crab Dip, Tenderloin Bruscetta, or French Quarter Jambalya. When the sun goes down, the Top transforms into a chic UNC hangout, featuring Drain the Tank Mondays and live music on Thirsty Thursdays. The restaurant has a full bar, but with microbrews that have netted eighteen World Championship Beer medals, it seems that an ice cold pint is the way to go. - Caitlin Fahey
