Restaurants in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte is a world city now, and beyond great barbecue and soul food and banana pudding, it boasts a panoply of fine dining rooms that await those with refined taste and/or an expense account. Lacking both, we are delighted to eat our way around the Queen City and savor its of-the-people treasures. Restaurants with unique personalities abound: Amelie’s French Bakery, where pastries reign and interior decor is Psychedelic/Victorian/Salvadore Dali; Zada Jane’s for its biscuits with apple jam and super-sociable counter seats; Lupie’s for its divine chili slaw burger and Elvis decor. For seriously good collard greens and mac & cheese, true whole-hog BBQ, superb fried chicken, fish fries, and old-time drive-ins, Charlotte is a good place to be.
