CHARLOTTE, N.C. - As several new Charlotte-area eateries and watering holes opened in January or will do so in the coming months, a couple of restaurant closures in and around uptown grabbed readers’ attention last month.
CBJ reported in early January on Newk’s closing its doors at 101 N. Tryon St. just days before Christmas. That fast-casual concept had already shuttered its south Charlotte location in Blakeney shopping center, but its remaining Charlotte-area store in Rock Hill is expected to stay open.
And then there was the closing of Kickstand Burger Bar in Plaza Midwood on Jan. 10, a move propelled by ongoing construction at its building on Central Avenue.
As for newcomers to the restaurant scene, the Charlotte area has added the likes of Barcelona Wine Bar in South End, Sabor Latin Street Grill’s 12th location uptown and a second-to-the-market Sweet Dough shop at Ballantyne Town Center.
The February installment of CBJ’s Restaurant Bites provides a full roundup of restaurant-related news recently reported by our staffers. Check it out here.
