Three Great Sweet Potato Dishes
Take advantage of this season's sweet potatoes with these three dishes
North Carolina produces more sweet potatoes than any other state, and this month officially marks the start of the harvest season, which lasts through November. These three Charlotte spots offer dishes that take full advantage of the golden vegetable. Farm-to-fork favorite Harvest Moon Grille (235 N. Tryon St., 704-342-1193) serves gnocchi ($11, pictured) made with orange and yellow sweet potatoes from Barbee Farms topped with brown butter, Swiss chard, Feta cheese, and Watsonia Farms white peaches (there’s also a sweet potato burger on the lunch menu). At 300 East (300 East Blvd., 704-332-6507), Gorgonzola cream-topped sweet potato ravioli ($12), sprinkled with toasted walnuts, is a classic indulgence. For a sweet finish, opt for the vanilla bourbon sweet potato pie ($3.99) at Dish (1220 Thomas Ave., 704-344-0343).
