Where to Eat in Charlotte Right Now
Bardo is the older, fancier sister restaurant of VANA, and perfect for dates and special occasions. During the pandemic, the restaurant pivoted into a chef-driven tasting menu concept and the response has been epic. Chef Michael Noll and his team can be seen from the exposed kitchen at the back of the dining room preparing each dish throughout the evening. Pre-pandemic it was all about shared plates but the team switched gears to a five, seven, or 12-course tasting menu with a pairing option. The best part? You don’t know what’s coming until it arrives but expect to be wowed with dishes like Magret duck breast in a bath of curry, burnt orange, black truffle, and celery root crumble or bulgogi mushrooms with charred and fermented cucumber and truffled tofu.
