My husband and I will be moving from LA to Charlotte in less than three weeks. I'm been trying to read about the restaurants in the area but have seen very little and was hoping to get some suggestions.
We are in our mid-twenties and will be living short-term in NoDa until we buy our house.
We tend to like fun, hip or quirky restaurants. We aren't into chains or stuffy environments. (So even if the food is excellent, we won't like the place if we feel like we have to be on our most proper behavior.)
So far I've heard about a place in NoDa that has fish tacos and we've put that on our list. I think we went to Village Tavern on our last trip. It was a place in Dilworth.
Any unique places we should check out. Mainly dinners and perhaps breakfasts. All price ranges. Food types - we eat just about everything except indian.
To give you an idea of the places we liek..We have a favorite breakfast place in LA where we can eat in a garden patio and enjoy our breakfast and coffee. Our favorite neighborhood restaurant is a small plates place where we pile up appetizers during the 2 for 1 happy hour and enjoy wine. Our favorite special occasion restuarant is an organic restaurant set in the woods with tables next to the creek with all candlelight. We also love loungey type places.
Any help is much appreciated. I know we won't have the culinary options we are used to, but there have to be some gems in Charlotte, too.
