This is a spin-off from Jake Ryan's thread about the Ballantyne Hotel and Zebra.

One of the things we want to do this year is experience some new, finer dining restaurants in and around Charlotte. We're not so much interested in the chains (Capital Grille, Morton's, etc.) but instead in more of the local places, Like Bentley's on 27 (which is ok) or McNinch House (where we plan to go soon). We had not heard of Zebra before Jake mentioned it, so we wanted to know if people can recommend some other local, upscale places.

As for fine dining, that isn't a chain you might enjoy Nobles or Barringtons. I've been to both and prefer Nobles but Barringtons is a good choice also. I can't express how awesome the Fig Tree is and is always my top recommendation when asked.

I second Nobles. Another one of my favorites is Bonterra in South End.

If you're a big fine dining fan you absolutely MUST visit the Fearington House on Hwy 501 between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. It's the finest dining experience you'll find between DC and Atlanta. Unfortunately it's not local, but I think most of us get up toward the triangle a time or two every year. If you want a super-romantic weekend they are a country inn too. Makes for a great weekend... stay up there, catch a college game (State, UNC or Duke) or a hockey game (Canes), eat at the restaurant, do some pottery shopping/antiquing, walk along Franklin Street in Chapel Hill or just lay around the farm...

Where is that? Never heard of it

Someone just told me that the Passion 8 Bistro in Fort Mill was very nice. I was kind of weirded out because of it's location and I remember what used to me there, but I think I may now have to try it!!

Yes, Passion 8 Bistro is very good! Due to the location, I wasn't expecting it to be so nice.

I'm making a list of these. I like the way the Fig Tree looks...I always like the small restaurants like this in converted houses.


Anyone else have any others?

What's so unusual about the location of Passion 8?
