Kelly's CLT Foodie Finds

February 7, 2017

I love the look of food, the smell of food, tasting food. I also love to talk about it, write about it, and snap photos of it. Here are my Charlotte Foodie Finds for this week!

In case you haven't noticed, Charlotte is growing by leaps and bounds. I feel like every other week there's a new restaurant opening. There's a lot of phenomenal food in the Queen City that you need to try! And honestly, there's still a lot of restaurants on my must try list that I need to get to ASAP!

1. Do you love trying new restaurants? Boy, did I find the perfect event for you! Our friends at Charlotte Magazine are throwing the first ever Best New Restaurants Party.

According to their website, "This March, for the first time, we will provide the opportunity for readers to taste food from the best new local restaurants as well as meet the talented chefs, one-on-one at our first-ever Best New Restaurants Party!" Doesn't that sound amazing? 

You can stalk the 25 restaurants that will be featured at the event here and buy tickets to the March 9th party here.

2. I traveled last week and finally had Avocado toast at the Newark Airport. It may have been one of the best things I had in awhile. I made it my mission to find some Avocado toast in Charlotte and boy did I hit the jackpot. I found the most incredible creation and it was at a Charlotte spot that's been around for awhile. 

When there's an #aguapolypse evacuation in Chapel Hill, you naturally find refugee at Luna's #clt #lunas #watershortage @lambhunta

It's the Living Bagel from Luna's Living Kitchen in South End! As per their menu, "it's a raw, savory bagel made with almonds, flax, zucchini and rosemary - topped with cashew sour cream, tomato, onion, basil, avocado, and sprouts - spice it up with jalapenos (optional)!" I am literally drooling.

3.  With Valentine's Day just a week away, I had to choose something with chocolate. Love beer and chocolate? You need to head over to Triple C Brewing Company to try their Chocolate covered pretzel stout! 

I may need to go indulge in some of that goodness before the weekend rolls around!

If you have a must try spot, drink, or dish... let me know! I am always looking for new foods to try and take lots of pictures of too!
