Charlotte Hounds - Need Downtown Suggestion

Hermosa Beach Girl | Nov 19, 200507:43 AM

First, thank you to all who contributed ideas several weeks ago for me. My husband and I moved to Charlotte last weekend and have started trying out some of your suggestions.

So far we have gotten some BBQ in Lexington and have gone to Penguin, Cabo Fish Tacos and Mellow Mushroom (in NoDa). We are still in the interviewing frenzy, so the more upscale places are on hold for now.

Well, I need one more suggestion. My in-laws and brother-in-law (22) will be here from Wednesday to Saturday for Thanksgiving. We have gotten them reservations at the Courtyard Marriot downtown and are hoping to have a good place to go for dinner on Wednesday night. Thursday is Thanksgiving and Friday we will be going to dinner in our neighborhood - NoDa.

The places I have seen from driving around and have heard of are Sonoma, Arpa, Cosmos, etc. We are looking for a good place to "introduce" them to Charlotte. (and us too!) They will be paying so we don't want it to be really expensive. Also, they aren't the super trendy type. Plus, we'd like it to be in walkable range around Uptown.

Does anything meet this criteria?
