Are you hungry, South Charlotte? We’re sure you will be when you read—or should we say devour—this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue! We spent the last few months scouring the streets in search of the most delicious bites South Charlotte has to offer, and we found more than enough material to fill these pages.

While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious) but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures.

Consider this issue your foodie guide to South Charlotte, featuring the best places to satisfy your hunger. Feeling inspired by the pros? Channel your inner chef and whip up a Lifestyle-approved recipe in your own kitchen! We promise we wouldn’t steer you wrong. See Pages XX to get started.

Also, be sure to check out Page XX to read about my favorite foodie travel destination and Pages XX and XX for an exclusive look at two of our team’s go-to Charlotte restaurants. 

Dig in, South Charlotte!
