Charlotte magazine isn't coy in its praise of Clean Catch Fish Market. "Simply stated, Clean Catch Fish Market is the fish market Charlotte has been waiting for," it raved when it awarded the market its 2012 Editors' Choice Award for Best Fish Market, citing the "quality and freshness." The market also came out on top in that year’s Voters' Choice Awards.
Living up to the accolades, staffers curate seasonal selections of the freshest fish possible, such as Alaskan cod or swordfish caught wild in state. Though they're continually searching for exciting, new seafood, they always offer a selection of sushi-grade fish, oysters, and shellfish. Clean Catch Fish Market dedicates itself to sustainable seafood, and the vast majority of catches are wild.
The market's chefs can give shoppers tips on how to cook their finds or give recipe suggestions, but they also whip up dishes of their own, such as shrimp gumbo, jumbo crab cakes, and complete fish-taco kits. Every day, staffers post links to the day's offerings on their Twitter page, and they allow customers to text in their orders to the shop rather than making them send their overworked carrier pigeons.
An acronym for Fabulous Art Buying Opportunity, FABO began as just that: an art store. It still is today, only along with art, the Park Road shop quenches thirst and quiets hunger, too. Inside, artwork from nearly 60 local artists?including paintings, photographs, jewelery, and pottery?sprawls across blue-gray and wine-colored walls. Visitors kick back in this funky atmosphere to sip on coffee, espresso, and even a carefully selected roster of wines and beers, some from local breweries. When stomachs begin to rumble, guests can also munch on muffins, bagels, and other bakery treats made to eat while on the move or during a secret detour from a nearby marathon.

At Holistic Wellness Center of Charlotte, co-founders Dr. Arthur Cushing and Mr. Kristien M. Boyle work together to treat patients with research-based holistic and functional medicine. After watching his late first wife react adversely to multiple allergens, Dr. Cushing made it his life?s mission to root out allergy causes, developing the AllerCease technique in the process. This holistic method uses vibrations to bring the body?s frequency in harmony with the frequencies of different allergens, thus curing the body of the ailment. In addition to his allergy expertise, he also treats patients with services such as kinesiology, scar-tissue therapy, weight loss and detoxification, and trigger-point-release therapy. A licensed practitioner of oriental medicine and acupuncture, Mr. Boyle uses his vast medical knowledge to treat patients via blood work, saliva testing, acupressure, and Chinese and Western herbology.
