This Popular North Carolina Restaurant Is Closing But Wait There’s More
If there’s one thing for sure, North Carolina’s culinary scene is ever changing. And, before I even had a chance to visit I learned this week that famed Charlotte chef Sam Hart plans to close his popular reverse-wine pairing restaurant Biblio. But, Biblio restaurant closing is not the end of the story.
The James Beard Award finalist announced that he is opening a new spot next year. And, according to What Now Charlotte, the Italian concept will be called ‘Spaghett.’ Also, the location is set for 224 W 10th St. in Charlotte’s Fourth Ward.
Hart announced on his Instagram “Thrilled to be a part of the incredibly rich history of the Morrison House and Fourth Ward, while writing new history alongside our Irreverently Refined Hospitality team. Spaghett will be a wild wild time.”
Hart went on to say that with Biblio restaurant closing, the last service is Saturday, December 9. And, he indicates the “sister restaurant” Counter will in essence take over to fill both spaces at 2001 West Morehead St. starting December 15. He says the expansion offers an “even more unique experience.”
And, as for the new concept, Spaghett, expect a two story restaurant with a speakeasy known as “The Upstairs.” Hart plans the opening of the restaurant in June 2024. Spaghett will offer main and private dining rooms as well as a patio.
But, it sounds as though Chef Hart has a lot of irons in the fire. So, stay tuned to keep abreast of all the changes on the culinary front in North Carolina courtesy of Chef Sam Hart. And, for more see the full story from What Now Charlotte. And, maybe you can squeeze in one last visit to Biblio before it closes on December 9.
The Best Restaurants In Each City & Town In North Carolina
The best restaurant is a bold claim to make. Obviously, I have not eaten at every restaurant in every North Carolina city and town. So I dug through Yelp reviews to help me out. Because you deserve to know what the best is, whether it’s your city, a nearby place, or somewhere you’re planning a trip. Many of the restaurants included on this list are hidden gems you may not have even heard of. Others are staples that everyone knows! There are 50 cities and towns included on this list and these are the 50 cities and towns in the state according to Wikipedia. You’ll find them listed from smallest to largest along with the best restaurants in that North Carolina city or town.
As for the restaurants, I consulted Yelp for each city and town included on this list. Reviews were sorted by the highest rated and the restaurant had to have an address in that specific city. Food trucks were omitted as well as a few coffee shops that didn’t offer food other than a couple of pastries. Not all the places included have sit-down meals but you can get a full meal at all of them. You’ll find a wide variety of restaurants including bbq, southern homestyle, Italian, and even Portuguese. Hopefully, this inspires you to check out a new place this weekend.
If you think another spot in your town deserves this title, well then you’ll have to give them a good review! Know that Yelp reviews are ever-changing so depending on when you are reading this a new restaurant could have taken the title on the platform.
