BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Fern, Flavors from the Garden

Map1323 Central Ave
Charlotte, NC 28205
  • Food


Meat lovers and veggie fanatics have plenty to like about Fern, Flavors From the Garden. With earthy d├ęcor (there’s a fern-filled living wall and a mason jar chandelier) and satisfying vegetarian fare with Indian, Mediterranean, and Southwestern influences, the casual eatery has become an instant classic. The OM (veggie) Burger and Tribal Tacos are regular features—and standouts—although toppings can vary with the seasons.
