These picks are based on our 2019 25 Best New Restaurants and 2018 50 Best Restaurants lists. 


Soul Gastrolounge

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. 1500-B Central Ave., 704-348-1848.


Bistro La Bon

This Plaza Midwood favorite recently expanded to a second location in Cotswold. Dinner favorites include the swedish meatballs, lavender chicken, and other tapas-style selections. 1322 Central Ave., 704-333-4646.


Intermezzo

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. 1427 E. 10th St., 704-347-2626.


Midwood Smokehouse

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. Multiple locations.


Sushi Guru

In addition to the sushi rolls at its SouthPark location, Sushi Guru’s new two-story restaurant in Plaza Midwood serves ramen, poke bowls, and other creative food mash-ups such as the donut sushi, a supersized specialty roll which can be customized with your preferred “filling,” and the sashimi pizza, a toasted pita pie topped with edamame, hummus, slices of fresh salmon or tuna, and drizzled with wasabi aioli and eel sauce. There’s also a cocktail bar on the second floor. 1217 The Plaza, 980-256-4220.
