5 Establishments To Visit Charlotte NC
Whether you live in Charlotte, NC or are visiting, you will definitely want to pay these establishments a visit.
Cajun Queen Restaurant serving Charlotte since 1985 and a go to when I have friends and family visiting from out of town. You can't beat the atmosphere nor the food and you certainly won't leave hungry. Dress to impress or feel free to dress casual, all are welcome. This 100 year old home is located in historic Elizabeth with nightly fish specials and live jazz 7 days a week, As soon as you walk through the door, grab a necklace or two where everyday is Mardi Gras. Dine downstairs by the cozy fireplace or upstairs for some live jazz music. I recommend you start out with a cup or bowl of their famous Gumbo, and sit back and enjoy! Reservations strongly suggested if a weekend night,. www.cajunqueen.net
Angela's Pizza and Italian Restaurant, has in my opinion some of the best pizza in Charlotte. My favorite being the white pizza with ricotta, mozzarella, and my personal addition being tomatoes. Can you say yum! The owner, Peter is from Naples, Italy and honors his Italian ancestors by serving dishes stemming from recipes handed down by generations. Family oriented and welcoming. www.facebook.com/AngelasItalian
Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery in Ronda, NC is well worth the short drive from Charlotte. Nestled near the Yadkin River and Blue Ridge Mountains is true tranquility at it's best.
