Soul Gastrolounge

1500-B Central Ave., 704-348-1848

FOOD: ★★★1/2 
SERVICE: ★★★  
AMBIANCE: ★★★1/2   

The servers are hip, the sound system is bumping, and the menu is all over the place, with sushi rolls, daily hummus features, and shared plates. You can’t find this vibe anywhere else, and the food is just as good as it ever was, while the cocktails may be even better.


Bistro La Bon

1322 Central Ave., 704-333-4646

FOOD: ★★★1/2 
SERVICE: ★★★
AMBIANCE: ★★★1/2   

Beloved chef and owner Majid Amoorpour left Bistro la Bon this spring, but several of his recipes remain on the menu. You can still find the lavender chicken and the Swedish meatballs, but some new items might begin to change your regular order. 


Intermezzo

1427 E. 10th St., 704-347-2626

FOOD: ★★★
SERVICE: ★★★1/2    
AMBIANCE: ★★★

The No. 1 restaurant on any gray day list, this restaurant with exposed brick and small dining areas has a menu that ranges from pizza to cabbage rolls.


Midwood Smokehouse

Multiple locations

FOOD: ★★★
SERVICE: ★★★★   
AMBIANCE: ★★★1/2   

Lots of folks argue that Charlotte isn’t a barbecue town, but the crowds at Midwood Smokehouse with platters of smoked pork and traditional sides say otherwise.
