Re: “Here's to Dominica

Seriously? Dominica and Dominican Republic are 2 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES!!! This article is about Dominica so any reference to DR should be changed. There are also no Dominican restaurants in Charlotte, only those from DR, which is Spanish food. You should also fact check before posting something like this as there is power in the hospital now and that Cacao Tea recipe is severely lacking. Do better CL!

Re: “Here's to Dominica

Dominica and the Dominican Republic are two different countries. DOMINICA pronounced Domineeka 'The Nature Isle' was completely destroyed by Irma. Not sure why you have a list of Dominican restaurants in this article

Re: “A Mexican-Cuban Goes Home to an Authentic Meal

Ok, you're probably new at this. But next time, if you're going to spend about 75% of the article telling readers how much of an expert you are at a particular cuisine, could you say something a little more specific about the food than it's "impeccable," "perfect," "delightful," etc.?
Tell us why it's all those things. Give us some kind of insight into the flavors, the types of spices and seasonings used, the kinds of flavor combinations that make it so impeccable. We don't need to be told that tacos have lettuce, tomato and ground beef. In fact, why would you order tacos in the first place? We've all had tacos.
Order something else, something that might set the restaurant apart from others, something local Latinos might order. Then tell us how it's presented. Then tell us what it tastes like, what makes it different or unique, why it might be good or bad, what kind of cooking techniques might have been used. Give us more detail.
Thanks.

Re: “R.I.C's Market will be the first of its kind in Charlotte

The former president of Trader Joe's is doing this in Boston
There is another group with a store up and running in Philadelphia, and in the Dakotas
Also one starting in Waco Texas
Charlotte needs this bad on the Westside, I hope they make it

Re: “Woodlands Offers Indian Vegan and Vegetarian in East Charlotte Strip Mall

In fact, Jason, I am one of those people who lives right near Woodlands. If you are one of those people, too, then we're neighbors! :)
I'm sorry my discussion of the location came off to you as kvetching; actually, I was letting the vast majority of Charlotteans (not just people who live uptown) who don't live in my area of East Charlotte know that although Woodlands may be farther away than most restaurants, the food is worth the drive. Clearly, that's not an issue for me (I can walk to Woodlands), but for those folks who live in almost any other area of Charlotte, it *is* an issue.
But you're absolutely right: I could have spent more space describing the food.
Thanks for writing.

Re: “Woodlands Offers Indian Vegan and Vegetarian in East Charlotte Strip Mall

Woodlands is indeed a fantastic restaurant. However, not everybody in Charlotte lives in the uptown area. In fact, a lot of folks live right near Woodlands. Perhaps the author could have done less kvetching about the location & used those two paragraphs to instead talk about the food.

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!
