The feast is on! From dazzling debuts to dishes we crave, the North Shore's dining scene is tastier than ever.

SPACE and Union Pizzeria
Although not owned by the same people, SPACE and Union Pizzeria share one roof, and together they make a perfect evening out. SPACE routinely punches above its weight securing national acts to perform in its intimate venue, like Grammy-nominated Bebel Gilberto (July 26, $25 to $80) or guitarist Jimmie Vaughan (July 24 & 25, $30 to $68). Add to that a pre- or post-show dinner from Union’s wood-burning oven, and you’ve got a memorable night out. 1245 Chicago Ave., Evanston

Firefly Kitchen
With live music every Tuesday night, bring a group to Firefly to share a large cheese and charcuterie board, plus a flatbread or two. Or make it a more intimate date night with a look toward some of owner and chef Dean Salerno’s signature dishes, like the grilled Berkshire pork chop or the truffle mushroom risotto. Either way, the music of the talented Double Starch, who perform folk, classic rock and contemporary covers, will keep the toes a-tapping. We promise not to tell if you sing along or dance for a song or two. 111 Green Bay Road, Wilmette

From piano bar to jazz to contemporary rock, the lounge at 210 Live mixes genres, artists and vibes usually five nights a week. Give the baby back ribs a try, along with the shareable Israeli platter with hummus, baba ghanoush and lots of pitas for dipping. Drinks include craft cocktails as well as a large selection of wines by the glass and, of course, draft and craft beers. Stop by July 7 for a Latin dance lesson with Carpacho y Su Combo. 210 Green Bay Road, Highwood
