We will be visiting Charlotte, NC in a couple of weeks. Could anyone suggest the top two or three steak or seafood houses? Thanks. Dick

    You may try eating out at Vivace opened in Midtown, Charlotte. It’s a contemporary Italian restaurant which offers some excellent variety of Italian traditional dishes and wine.

      Is this another ad for Vivace? At least its short, unlike the last one.

      Some of the best steak and seafood in Charlotte isn't found at all the steakhouses. If you want the atmosphere of a steakhouse and good food the best is Mcintoshes. Independently owned. If you want good quality and a variety go to The Fig Tree. They have a great elk chop and some of the best seafood I've ever had. Avoid going to the chains. You won't get a taste of Charlotte there.

        Definitely try the Beef and Bottle on South Boulevard!

        http://www.beefandbottle.com/

        Inside creature features remind me of the restaurant scene out of "Goodfellas" movie with Joe Pesci!

        Great atmosphere, good cocktails, Sinatra music, super beef!

          Just FYI - Greg McIntosh closed his restaurant a few months back - too bad, I worked there for 4 years and it was great!

          There are many non-steak places that are worth it. My attitude is that with a really hot grill - anyone can have great steak at home.

          Other places to try are:

          Terra
          Barringtons
          Zebra
          Copper

          Check them out!
