A less-crowded place for Mother's Day in Charlotte
I really need some suggestions...I know it's a terrible day to decide to go out to eat but it's that combined with law school graduation. My father is a meat-and-potatoes person and not terribly receptive to fancier meals so the places I would choose are probably not going to please him (I really want Chima) and he's also stingy. Someplace in South End/Dilworth/Elizabeth would be best. The other thing is that I'm looking for some place that is serving around 4:00...an odd time.
Would a pub setting be ok? Big Ben is open all day. So is Liberty. 4 on a Sunday is going to greatly limit your choices.
Good point about the crowd. Man, but there aren't many spots that are open, are there? 131 Main would have been perfect too. There is one down in Blakeney. What about Cajun Queen? I haven't been there in a long time but they surely would have something to satisfy both the OP & his dad.
Some other considerations:
-Beef and Bottle (they don't open until 5pm though)
-Lulu on Central Ave.
-Firebirds in Southpark
I'm sorry to disagree about Kennedy's but I had one of the worst meals there recently. It's an Irish place so I ordered the corned beef plate. The meat was bizarre, like carne seca or a slightly less dehydrated beef jerky. The plate came with cabbage and mashed potatoes, except mine was missing the mashed potatoes. Since the service was so excruciatingly slow and I needed to get back to work, I didn't bother to ask the server to bring the missing food.
The deck is nice though!!
What's about Small's on Elizabeth? The menu has something for everyone.
