Harper's Restaurant Restaurant Review: Drawing from mall traffic and the surrounding neighborhoods, Harper’s Southpark location offers a comfortable setting thanks to its exposed brick, stone floors and a snazzy bar area. Friendly, attentive service enhances the dining experience. Wood-fired pizzas (made with organic flour) are a big draw, as are substantial salads and stuffed sandwiches. Daily soups such as Saturday's potato cheddar make a fine belly warmer for cooler months. Harper's fields a wine list of popular choices that is entirely new-world and largely American, with most offered by the glass. More places should be like this, with an atmosphere that welcomes families so parents can eat sophisticated dishes and the kids get familiar tastes, too. For those avoiding gluten, some gluten-free options are available. Also located at 11059 Carolina Place Pkwy., Carolina Place Mall, Pineville, 704-541-5255.
