One of our favorites is Nana's Soul Food. But where to eat is highly dependent on what you want and how much you're willing to spend. There's a Ruth's Chris .1 miles from your hotel.
The Blumental Theatre has multiple venues/stages, so check out what's showing while you're there.
I live in Charlotte and was located in the south park area for a year. within the immediate area you have:
Roosters - must go! great new american food.
Upstream - great fish/sushi.
Chuey's - great mexican (chain from Texas).
I have others, if you tell me food preferences I will add to the list.
Had a wonderful dinner and experience at "Barrington's"!
Good variety of dishes and it was a most pleasant atmosphere. Likewise, "Rooster's" was my favorite of the place in Charlotte. A "Bistro" atmosphere that was always enjoyable and constantly excellent!
Good luck and let us know what you experiences are like!
