When trying a restaurant for the first time, an empty house is a pretty good indicator of what’s to come. In a bad way.
“Where is everybody?” the owner shamelessly announces as we walk in.
We’re the only two people in the restaurant at peak dinner hour, and he seems more surprised than we are that no one is there. “It’s Restaurant Week,” I inform him. At that very moment everyone was undoubtedly streaming into Charlotte’s 100 best restaurants for a three-course meal deal while I, on the other hand, wanted to be anywhere but. With PlateShare’s Android beta launching at the event, I’d had about all the Restaurant Week I could handle, which is how we landed in this humble spot on South Blvd on one of the hottest dining nights of the year.
“Oh… More for us!” he laughs and gets back to running his restaurant, empty or not.
