Barns on display

We eat at the Ashbury because they have great food. That and we like their bar.

But today there was an extra treat of art by Fonda Doerre. Personally I was very impress with her paintings of barns.

This photo was taken at 235 North Tryon. Following is a link to the Ashbury Restaurant website. Following is a link to an article about Chef Matthew Krenz winning Chef of the Year award. The best in the state.

Dandelion Market

Our preference is to enjoy the Dandelion Market on Sunday afternoons when the bar is quite. However for those in search of a crowd the time to go is Friday or Saturday night. They also have a big crowd at brunch. Maybe because if the Bloody Mary bar 😉

This photo was taken at 118 West 5th Street in Uptown Charlotte. Following is a link to the Dandelion Market website. Be sure and check out the menu. They offer “everything at the Market” for $295

Amelie’s French Bakery

Today was overcast and rainy. A stay inside sort of day. So for our outing we strolled through the Overstreet Mall to Amalie’s.

From the photo, you can see that Amalie’s is fun and eclectic.

As regulars we recommend Amalie’s for the atmosphere, wine, food, and for their baguettes. Oh, and their pastries a very good too.

Amalie’s French Baker is at 380 South College.

Que Onda Tacos and Tequila

Que Onda Tacos and Tequila Last night, we enjoyed a meal at Que Onda Tacos and Tequila. The food and drinks were very good. In addition, I especially enjoyed the art. The artist is Rosalia Torres-Weiner.

These photos were taken at 333 West Trade Street in Uptown Charlotte. Following is a link to the Que Onda website.
