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.

Hot Taco

We went out on Cinco De Mayo and quickly realized the crowds were too thick. So we came back today for brunch and we the only patrons ;)

Actually, although they serve brunch, the Hot Taco is more of a bar scene for those that enjoy a crowd.

This photo was taken at 200 East Bland in the South End. Following is a link to the Hot Taco website.

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
