Clark Barlowe’s name comes up in most conversations about the Charlotte food scene these days. We’d like to think it’s because he was on our January cover, but it’s more likely because of his dedication to serving up fresh dishes made only of Carolina ingredients. The bar team can keep up with the chef’s creations, too, using NC-based spirits such as Cardinal Gin and Queen Charlotte’s Rum.
