I get to see my Dad only a couple of times a year. We always go out for a long dinner to catch up, martini's to start, drink some good wine and have a fine meal. We will be staying in the South Park area of Charlotte but will have a car so can travel if need be.
The short list at the moment includes Good Food, Andrew Blair, Lulu's, Ruth Chris, Bonterra, and Barrington's (where we dined a few years ago). As you can see most are close to South Park and a couple are 5-6 miles away. Price is not an issue. We want more of a good food experience and most importantly, don't want to be rushed. Of the list above Ruth Chris is the outlier I know but, Dad does want the option to order a good steak. I like to support local (non chain) restaurants with innovative food and wine menus.
Of the list, what do you recommend or am I missing one? most of my research was done on chowhound or tripadvisor with some google thrown in.
thanks in advance for your help.
