Feather chandeliers, leather banquettes, and a black ceiling set the scene at this sleek, loft-style space in the center of Uptown, where signature dishes such as a lamb burger, ahi tuna poke, and citrus- & herb-roasted whole fish are served alongside fancy libations. Guests typically mingle here earlier in the evenings for a drink or two before continuing on to another nearby nightlife destinations. Specialty cocktails like the Viper (Patron, orange liqueur, cucumber water, and cayenne pepper) and the Rosemary Gin Fizz (gin, liquid egg whites, and rosemary simple syrup) are sophisticated enough to keep up with the crowd.
This neighborhood bar in NoDa is a great local watering hole with real good grub. They've got burgers, dogs, cheesesteaks, wings, and more. Try the Jack-Mac, which is their version of mac-and-cheese with a garlicky buffalo sauce.
A home to Buffalo bills football fans, Tavern on the Tracks is the place to get your fix on sports, beef, and beer. Try the Beef on Weck, which is beef piled high on a caraway seeded weck roll.
Libretto's Pizzeria has several brick-and-mortar locations, including one inside the EpiCentre in Uptown Charlotte. Libretto’s serves authentic New York City pizza in a casual and comfortable setting, with a delicious crispy crust and overflowing melting cheese. Also on the menu, you'll find Italian classics like calzones fresh from the oven and desserts. They also have a pizza truck which can be found roaming around town.
Designed to resemble a classic, old-school diner, this Charlotte favorite is lined with vinyl-backed booths, formica tabletops, and a jukebox. Originally opened in 1945, the historic red-brick space is a Commonwealth mainstay, with a dedicated local following. Breakfast is served all day, the creative house burger and hot dog selections are impressive, and the restaurant is open until 4am on the weekends -- there is no time of day ill-suited to the famous Diamond "Pig Wings" (deep-fried pork shanks covered in cinnamon-chipotle sauce). The daily specials are reliably satisfying, the home made deserts are remarkable, and if you make enough appearances, the affable wait staff will surely start to greet you by name.
One of the few late night spots in the neighborhood, Leroy Fox serves ups its eclectic menu after midnight. Try the hot pretzels, which come with honey mustard and ranch dressing. They are perfect for after dinner snacking.
Family-owned for the last 25 years, the diner is the place for breakfast, Greek salads, or a slice of chocolate cake the size of your head.
