I love Soul, but I think someplace new might be nice. Recommendations?

      Fig Tree, although I haven't been there in a while. But it's a nice, intimate atmosphere and the food was always bangin'.

      Carpe Diem, for the same reasons above.

      Barringtons - small, intimate and French-inspired. They usually have foie gras - which is all that is needed to get my attention. ;-)

      Bistro La Bon - just a block up from Soul Gastrolounge and, although I've not been yet, I've heard they do everything well and the menu looks tempting.

      Halcyon, the restaurant at the new Mint Museum downtown has an amazing view and of course Marc Jacksina is doing the food so it's creative, local and damned good.

      The Fig Tree Restaurant
      1601 East 7th Street, Charlotte, NC 28204

        We went to Kalu this weekend...the food was good, service good, and the space is gorgeous. I think they suffer a bit due to location, but definitely a good experience.

          I think they suffer a bit because of the prices.

            IMHO the prices are very in line for the quality they are serving. This is a fine dining restaurant.
