Restaurant Bites: What's new and what's coming to a menu near you

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NoDa last month was the scene of multiple new additions to its lineup of food and beverage offerings.

Among those was the long-anticipated opening of The Chamber By Wooden Robot Brewery in late June. That concept, which includes a taproom in addition to an outdoor patio and a rooftop biergarten, both spanning 3,000 square feet, serves as a centerpiece for Wooden Robot’s barrel-aging program. It’s also the second location for Wooden Robot, which keeps its original location at 1440 S. Tryon St. in South End.

And one doesn’t have to go far to find other recent openings in the NoDa neighborhood. Next door in that same complex, located across from the Novel NoDa project and adjacent to the Lynx Blue Line 36th Street Station, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and meals-in-a-bowl concept Rush Bowls are also open.

Nearby neighborhoods, like Plaza Midwood, for instance, also added a couple of new dining options, including a popular Denver-based brunch spot.
