  • Global Restaurant, Bar and Lounge
    Global Restaurant's Chef Bernard grew up along the sun-soaked shores of the southern French village of Nice, where his grandfather was a pastry chef and his father owned a fish shop. This rich familial and Francophilic culinary heritage inspired him to take chef apprenticeships in Paris, the United Kingdom, Russia, and upon globe-roving cruise ships. His travels infused an eclectic edge into his cooking, which still incorporates traditional meals, fusion concepts, and a French spirit. His journeys also yielded him more than recipes — during one of his cruises, he met his wife, Shannon, whose experience with the front end of the food-and-beverage industry led the pair to open their own restaurant in Charlotte. Inside the duo's creation, Global Restaurant, electric blues and oranges brighten the space, and crisp tablecloths lay a canvas for dishes with inventive flavors and artistic presentations. Chef Bernard's specialties include cauliflower-goat-cheese sauce, boldly splashed across a seared sea bass, and date chutney and caramelized apples that dance across an all-natural duck. The menu, which is in many ways a travelogue of Bernard and Shannon's journeys, has snagged the attention of the Charlotte Observer and of WCNC's Charlotte Today, which invited Bernard on air for a live cooking demo, where he seared some of his famous diver scallops atop the weatherman's greenscreen.

  • Rockytop Hospitality Catering & Events
    The chefs at Draft Carolina Burgers & Beers craft specialty burgers out of high-grade, local beef, boasting an extensive array of chuck cylinders alongside salads, sandwiches, and shareable appetizers. Every day, grass-fed Angus beef is ground in-house, eventually transforming into finger-bound feasts such as the Southern Lovin', a burger topped with fried green tomatoes, Holly Grove Farms goat cheese, bacon, and balsamic. Thanks to their partnership with the Mash House Brewery, Draft Carolina's bartenders decant ice-cold brews such as the Mash House blonde and the Mash House IPA, which won the 2001 Great American Beer Festival medal for Hoppy Hour IPA. Billiards and shuffleboard make ideal after-dinner entertainment, and a casual, welcoming atmosphere greets diners inhabiting all points of the monocle-to-jorts fanciness scale.

  • Saffron Indian Cuisine
    Saffron Indian Cuisine is named for saffron, a precious and flavorful spice that has been seasoning traditional Indian dishes since ancient times. In the restaurant's kitchen, chefs fold this and other exotic spices into a variety of time-honored recipes, from creamy paneer to savory tandoori items to piquant curry dishes. They bake juicy morsels of chicken, lamb, and shrimp in the fiery flames of their authentic clay tandoor oven, right alongside naan, kulcha, and roti breads. Pots of lentil soup and fragrant biryani rice simmer on the stove. Servers bring plates of Indian dishes and cups of chai tea into the elegant dining hall, where light streams in through tall windows. Artwork speckles the pristine white walls, depicting traditional Indian scenes such as an exotic bird drinking from a jungle stream and a long-haired sitar player who used to work at an advertisement agency in Cleveland.
