Quintessential Charlotte?

I am a San Francisco Chowhound who is taking an unexpected business trip to Charlotte and have tomorrow night free for dinner. I don't know where the other meals will be (someone else planned them). What restaurant would you say is emblematic of the best Charlotte has to offer, serving regional cuisine (no Italian, French, Asian, etc., all of which I can get in SF). I would prefer entrees around $20 but am willing to spend more if that's what it takes. Staying at the Hilton or the Ritz Carlton (still up in the air) and will have a rental car, but would prefer to eat within a 15 minute drive of where I'm staying.

Thanks everyone!
