Charlotte restaurant scene - new and pending

hazardnc | Nov 13, 2007 06:29 AM

Zada Jane's ( restaurant has opened on Central at Thomas Street. I believe folks from Thomas Street Tavern are involved. The place is for breakfast and lunch only. They were hoping to feature as many local ingredients as possible, but have had to refocus due to supply issues. I tried to go on Saturday morning, and the wait was 15 people deep, so I will have to go another day.

We have two great sounding burger joints coming soon: Big Daddy's Burger Bar on East Blvd. in the old Jaimama location, and The Counter Burger ( in the new center next to Crate and Barrel. The former is a Frank Scibelli of Mama Ricotta's and Cantina 1511. The latter is a chain out of California, and per their website, was featured in GQ as "One of the 20 hamburgers to eat before you die."

Both restaurants feature a vast selection of burger options (beef, turkey, salmon, chicken) and toppings. Counter Burger also will have fried dill pickles (look out Penguin!) The plus side of Big Daddy's will be its beer selection; purportedly 50 beers, with 20-30 on tap.
