Charlotte?
« on: April 21, 2010, 07:50:08 AM »
Anyone have any recommendations for a 2 day trip?  I seem to remember from AC someone saying that there wasn't much exciting happening there restaurant-wise, folks mostly eat at home.

Thanks, too late for this trip, tho.  We ended up at http://roosterskitchen.com/ for some grilled meats which were pretty tasty.  Very nice wine program, too.

Price's Chicken Coop.  "Rustic" but hey...fried chicken with hush puppies and tater tots...not bad.

Note:  You have to eat on the hood of your car, but I think its worth it.

I like the Hotel Charlotte (a restaurant), but it may be nostalgia on my part. It's been there a long time and I have an engraved beer mug on the wall. :)

A bunch of "best of" awards sent us here back in late June. http://www.mamaricottasrestaurant.com/Home/

Mama Ricotta's. Was very good, though if that's the best in Charlotte, more reason to be thankful for Atlanta.

I think I had the cannelloni. Everyone in the family liked.

Keep going up I-85 a little ways more and hit Lexington, the barbecue capitol of North Carolina.

Little ways? Unless you take a car directly off the Charlotte Motor Speedway, it's a good hour plus.

But yes, when we drive through every year, I do aim for Lexington.

I've been there.  It's not bad.  We had a coupon from the hotel, so that made it a better deal at least.

resurrecting a 3.5 year old thread to talk about 2 restaurants we ate at in Charlotte this past weekend:
Block and Grinder - http://blockandgrinder.com/
the pork belly app is just as good as it looks in the pics on their web site :)

and the Cowfish - http://www.thecowfish.com/
burgers in sushi form? yes please! creativity is off the chain at this place!
