Charlotte's Changing Cuisine Culture
As Charlotte’s demographics have changed, as people move here from around the country, the less homogenous character of the city is now reflected in our dining options. We’ve gone from a town full of restaurants featuring a meat and three with sweet tea to a city in which foods from around the world including multi-ethnic fusions are featured, still leaving room for Southern barbeque. We take a closer look at these new options and what they tell us about our changing identity.
