A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Winter Menu at Queen City Grounds
Queen City Grounds – 644 North Church Street Queen City Grounds is the coolest place I’ve found (yet) in Uptown Charlotte. I know, that sounds like damning with faint praise. Because Uptown Charlotte is not known for being “cool.” Its “coolness” is largely nonexistent. Manufactured and fabricated by middle aged white men in business suits…. Read More ›
A Vegan’s Adventures in Uptown Charlotte – Fajitas at Duckworth’s
My office often goes to Duckworth’s for big group gatherings. Several reasons: It’s within walking distance of our office. It’s one of the few places on “that side” of Uptown that can accommodate larger groups – farewell parties, team luncheons. There are several large tables and roomy booths, plus two very long tables in the… Read More ›

Halal Food Cart – 101 North Tryon Halal Gyro Man – 130 North Tryon It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of “what the f*ck?“; it was the… Read More ›

Burger 21 Restaurant Review (The Plant Based/Vegan Options)
Yesterday, my work team decided to treat our boss to lunch for her birthday. The chosen location was Burger 21, a fast casual a.k.a. “counter service” restaurant in Ballantyne. As you’d expect from the name, the joint specializes in burgers. Mostly beef burgers, but also chicken burgers, turkey burgers, tuna burgers, and shrimp burgers. They… Read More ›

Restaurant Review – Treetops Cafe at Doubletree Hotel by Hilton – Charlotte Airport
Sometimes, somewhere, some place when I least expect it … I have an unexpectedly wonderful vegan dining experience! Most recently that happened at the Treetops Cafe at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton – Charlotte Airport. I was taking a two-day financial seminar at the hotel. The first day of the seminar was gray, cold, and… Read More ›
Restaurant Review: Saffron Indian Cuisine
Understand, when I do a restaurant review, I do it from a veg (and mostly vegan) point of view. That means, a place like Saffron (2135-B, Ayrsley Town Boulevard, Charlotte, NC) might have the best goat biryani in the world, but I’m not interested. That’s not what I’m reporting on. I’m judging and reporting on the… Read More ›
