  • Food


Fourteen years ago, Bruce Moffett walked into a restaurant called the Metropolitan Café looking for work as a chef. The owner, Fran Scibelli, gave him a better offer—the chance to own the place. Moffett bought it, changed the name to Barrington’s, and took off. Today, Moffett owns three restaurants in Charlotte, but the intimate 45-seat Barrington’s still draws a loyal crowd with its seasonal American cuisine, cozy ambiance, and discerning wine list.
