I will be in Charlotte this upcoming weekend and will be meeting friends coming in from around the country. We will be staying at the Aloft Charlotte Uptown at the EpiCentre.
I am looking for recommendations for can't miss places. Any and all meals are welcome (breakfast through dinner). We would actually prefer local gems rather than 5-star places. We are willing to drive upwards of 20 minutes outside the city, but anything within the city limits is a plus. Many thanks for all recommendations!
