Portuguese in Charlotte?
I am also from NJ and remember all the portuguese and spanish restaurants mostly in Newark's iron bound section. Nothing close to this is here yet. People will tell you to try a place called Sole' a spanish restaurant on East Blvd. Many folks from around here will say its there favorite place. It is OK but not even close to NJ. We do have a very good Tapas Bar called Las Ramblas you might want to give this a try. I sure do miss the shrimp and garlic and the Paella from Spain, Don Pepe or Brazilian Pavillion
