Unique Local Eats

Exploring six of the best local dining spots in Charlotte

Hestia Rooftop 

Hestia Rooftop offers a unique fine-dining experience. The Asian-fusion-styled cuisine combines salient flavors with an eye-catching presentation for an all-encompassing feast of the senses. The best part is that its location atop Panorama Tower provides a birds-eye view of the city to guests who dine in.

OGGI Ristorante Italiano 

OGGI Ristorante Italiano serves made-from-scratch traditional Italian-style dishes. Guests will find the casual, yet cultivated, environment provides the perfect atmosphere for any occasion. Visiting diners can choose from various comforting menu options—but everyone should be sure to try OGGI’s lasagna, as it’s considered the best in the city.

Mary O’Neills Irish Pub 

Mary O'Neill's Irish Pub is Waxhaw’s own little pot of gold, except you don’t have to follow a rainbow to find it– look for the town’s staple water tower and you’ll see the pub right beside it. The homey feel of the Pub makes it an excellent place to enjoy a great pint, southern-inspired cuisine, and some good conversation.

VegGeez Plant-Based Eatery 

Whether you are planning to go completely vegan or just trying to add more plants to your diet, VegGeez Plant-Based Eatery is a great place to try. The colorful and flavor-filled dishes might have meat eaters turning to the green side after their first bite. 

Pio Pio Chicken 

Pio Pio Chicken brings a piece of Peru to North Carolina with their saporous Peruvian cuisine. Although best known for its chicken, hence the name, Pio Pio has a diverse menu that offers something for everyone’s taste buds. Pio Pio Chicken is a great spot for a casual date night with a Latin flare. 

Sanctuary Bistro 

Sanctuary Bistro offers inspired vegan cuisine dishes that are good for your body, the planet, and the community. A portion of all proceeds are donated to local non-profit organizations.  Its mission to spread positivity and raise awareness through food creates a feel-good experience for everyone who dines there.
