Re: “A gathering of Charlotte's tastemakers

Hi, I am reaching out to you on behalf of Novanta 90 Pizzeria, the Charlotte, NC region’s only truly authentic Napoletana pizza restaurant. I am helping the owners with their public relations and social media.

I see that you are a well-known and high-profile foodie blogger, and wanted to invite you to visit the new, beautiful restaurant (conveniently located at exit 31 right off I-77) at LangTree at the Lake. The artisan pizzas are cooked by certified chefs in specially imported ovens in 90 seconds at 900 degrees. It’s amazing to watch and more amazing to eat! The toppings are all incredibly fresh and either imported from Italy or sourced from local farms. The crust is puffy and slightly charred…absolutely delicious.

I thought you would be very interested in meeting the owners and certified chefs, and watching the preparation. In addition, Novanta 90 chefs make house-made cheese and dough daily so you can see process as well if you are interested.

I would like to offer you a complimentary appetizer when you visit.

Please let me know when you think you are able to visit Novanta 90 Pizzeria Napoletana.

Thank you! Karen Dortschy

Re: “Deep sea dining

Thanks for the suggestion on Deep Sea Market - I was featuring places that are not dine-in.

Re: “Deep sea dining

Recommend Catch On between these two, as they actually post their prices. Note the blank "per lb." column in the Clean Catch photo. They probably set pricing based on customer appearance, charging as much as they think they can get! Has been this way since it opened.

Re: “Deep sea dining

While I agree that both of these businesses are good, you missed a real gem of a seafood market in not including Deep Sea Market on Monroe Rd. just below Sardis Rd. N. Larry and Tracy have a great selection of the fresh fish that changes daily and they have also been serving the best fresh fish lunches in the Charlotte area for three years. Can't wait till they begin serving dinner soon. I've been to 2 of their Lobster and Seafood boils over the summer and it can't be beat for the price or quality.

Re: “Beer tap handles are not items to decorate with

It's 2016 now and the brewers don't ask for the taps back. The brands change and they simply don't need them back. I just got a Super Bowl 50 tap. What should I do with it?

Re: “Prepackaged hard-boiled eggs at Trader Joe's?

I'm just lazy. I have been thinking though. What is done to these eggs to make them last so long? I recently boiled some eggs. Yay me!!!!! But the last two spoiled within a week. I had become accustomed to having the store bought boiled eggs last for weeks.

Re: “The battle of 'Pizza' Midwood

Although I've only had the Intermezzo pizza, it's hard for me to imagine anything could be any better, but I'll be referring back to this article to try these others listed for sure 👍

Re: “The battle of 'Pizza' Midwood

Every time someone writes about Pizza Midwood, they neglect the really decent pizza at the Harris Teeter. Why is that?

Re: “Biggest isn't best for beer

This is especially maddening when one of these mega-tap joints thinks "if we offer a single witbier we've got Belgian AND German styles covered" and then floods the rest of the menu with pale ales and porters.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

A couple of things: first, while Marcus Samulesson may be Harlem based, he definitely isn't black, nor does the dishes that he makes, speak for the majority of African-American culture. As for the Neely's, part of what made their show a success (in the beginning) was the fact that they were affectionate. They helped portray a positive image of not only successful marriage in the African-American community, but they also showed that we can own successful food franchises that are not modeled on what another culture dictates to us. As I said, this was part of what made them successful in the beginning. Over time, their dishes changed to be some of the same dishes that are seen on other shows. Yes healthy eating does need to be shown and promoted, but BBQ is a big part of the African-American community. No one complained when Paula Deene cooked dishes with massive amounts of grease or butter in them, so why complain about the Neelys making BBQ? That's what "brought them to the dance" so it only made since to perfect it while occasionally introducing new dishes. As for Sunny Anderson, I thought her show was good in the beginning but the same thing happened to her that happened to the Neely's as far as dishes goes: she changed so much that her dishes no longer even resembled what we actually make in the African-American community. I agree in a sense with what was said about Big Daddy's House, as far as the focus not matching the title of the show, or the drastic changes in dishes from week to week. Despite this, I still couldn't figure out why his show was cancelled.
