Executive Chef Bill Greene’s first Charlotte restaurant (his flagship, Artisanal, is about 100 miles away in the Blue Ridge Mountains) is at the forefront of the city’s wine and food scene. An innovative small-plates menu encourages sharing, and the wine list has exceptional depth for such a new venue.
From The Sommelier: “In my opinion, the city of Charlotte is on the cusp of breaking out as a food and wine city. We have such a banking presence here and lot of international travelers. These travelers have dined in a lot of fine restaurants throughout the world and know that wine is an important part in a great dining experience.” —Bill Greene, Peppervine
