I can’t really call myself a coffee drinker. I don’t like the taste of it black, and the caffeine doesn’t fully affect me (except cold brew…watch out). But I definitely enjoy (and often crave) a sweet coffee drink, whether it’s a hot mocha or an iced flavored latte. Last week, I tasted the most amazing… Continue reading Trade your Starbucks for Cuplux
It’s time again for another look at Evoke’s menu! I love that they change each spring and fall (and really love sampling the new items.) At this spring’s tasting, we were introduced to the new chef de cuisine, Rodrigo Velazco.

The utmost love and care is put into these pizzas, from the fresh ingredients to the homemade dough to the way they’re baked. I had the pleasure of trying Inizio a few days before its… Continue reading Inizio Pizza Brings Authenticity to CLT
Update [7/10/18]: Nolen Kitchen is now closed. 😦 One of my favorite parts of a dining experience is reading the menu. Before I step foot in the door, you can bet I’ve already scanned the menu online several times. Somehow, I’m still never prepared and still agonize over what to order, wishing I could have… Continue reading Where to Eat This Fall: Nolen Kitchen
So I know everyone in Charlotte is PUMPED about Chopt. With lots of locations up north, Chopt is not a new restaurant, but down here we’re freakin’ out about it!!! For example: Chopt opened in Park Road Shopping Center on Saturday, and I’ve already been twice. When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by friendly, helpful… Continue reading Is it weird to be obsessed with salads?
