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.
The good morning special at Dean and Deluca in Uptown Charlotte was French Toast and bacon. And the gentleman behind the sign skillfully and graciously prepares our breakfast every Saturday. We always order bagel sandwiches but the special was very appealing. But what caught my eye was the #goodmorning hashtag (smile).
Beignets from Fig Tree are among our favorite pleasures … The restaurant is in the historic Elisabeth area near Uptown Charlotte … our recommendation is to enjoy wine, appetizers, and desert at the bar … These beignets are so good that if you google “beignets from Fig Tree” there are 11,000 results.
Theme day is upside down this month .. literally and figuratively. Our literal contribution is this photo of chairs turned upside down so the floor can be moped. Check out yesterday’s post to see my figurative interpretation. Actually, I found this theme difficult because there are not many things upside down in my life (smile).
Follow this link to enjoy interpretations of the theme from around the world … July 2015 Gallery – Upside Down.
This photo was taken at one of the restaurants on East Boulevard in historic Dilworth near uptown Charlotte.
Recently I took this photo of a couple enjoying the view of Uptown Charlotte. I thought they made a good follow-up to the bridal photo shoot shared yesterday. Better yet I’ll will an eye out for a family with children or a mature couple holding hands as they stroll. There are all sorts of follow-up photos for a bridal photo shoot (smile).
On a recent evening out I took this photo of a fire pit at Fahrenheit rooftop lounge. Interestingly the fire pit is enjoyable even in May however I suspect they will have to turn them off by June or July.
This photo was taken at 222 S Caldwell Street. Following is a link to the website for Chef Rocco Whale at the Fahrenheit. His website says he also has made the 2011 list of best food trucks in the nation. The website also says the Fahrenheit food truck is available for your party. Connie asked if they will park on the roof (smile).
This a photo of a futo … actually the futo buta ramen restaurant soon to open in the South End next to the Bland Station on the Light Rail … I took the photo because I liked the play on words … however we also plan to try the restaurant … their Facebook page says … Everything Plus Noodles!
Note that they have a really nice outdoor patio with lantern lighting.
When looking for a hamburger one of our favorites spots is the Little Village Grill. One of our favorite features is that we get to enjoy a stroll through the 3rd Ward … Notice Connie’s contribution to the photo (smile).
When we want a great meal or a conversation with good friends we choose Bernardins Fine Dinning which is on the ground level of the Ratcliffe condos. Interestingly the restaurant is in the historic Ratcliffe Flowers building. When the condos were built they moved the flower shop across the street, build the 10 story condo complex while leaving a spot for the flower shop, then after construction was complete they moved the flower shop back into place. Very cool way to preserve and incorporate the original architecture. Over time the building housed a restaurant called Ratcliffe on the Green and then later Bernardins (pronounced Bernard-ins).
