Today’s photo shows the Charlotte Plaza office tower. Although, the tower is only the 15th tallest in Charlotte, it stands out with it’s distinctive black glass exterior.
We enjoy the building primarily because the offices, of our doctor, are in the building, Bentley’s restaurant is on the top floor, and a Starbucks is in the lobby.

We took a last minute decision to eat Sunday brunch at 300 East which is a very popular restaurant. So popular that reservation are needed. Fortunately, eating at the bar is first come first serve.
