Re: “As Charlotte institutions fell by the wayside in 2016, Open Kitchen remains... well, open

In the late 1960s, my mother sold advertising for WIST, and the Open Kitchen was one of her clients. She loved the Kokenes Brothers, and took my brother and I there to eat quite often. I was enchanted with the little jukeboxes at each booth.

Upon returning from a trip to Israel, I asked to stop at the Open Kitchen for some hometown fare! Yummy! My first taste of pizza was a leftover from my brother's date here in the late 60's!

Re: “Getting crabby

This event, at Unknown Brewing and run by Carolina Food Market, was a total disaster.

Re: “Corkbuzz is more than just a wine bar

I agree with you! A favorite place of ours to visit. I can't drink wine but I love the fantastic and exciting food at Corkbuzz, every single thing. I think I've tried everything on the menu at least once and every time I think that I found my new favorite. Love the fun, casual, friendly atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and the service is outstanding.

Re: “The five-year proliferation of Charlotte's food truck scene didn't come without struggle

We miss the Herban Legand,
How worked hard building the food truck business and all benefited from it.
Not just the trucks but the people.😍

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: “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: “Recapping the best of beers

You left out Thirsty Nomad, who are predicting an "early 2016" opening, across I-77 from OMB and Sugar Creek. In brewery time, that's probably "late 2016 if they're lucky", but still. http://thirstynomadbrewing.com/blog/

Re: “Seasonal release blues

For anyone who got shut out of the Cold Mountain sweepstakes, give Anderson Valley Winter Solstice or Great Lakes Christmas Ale a shot.
