Fake questions. Real answers.

Q: What's your favorite restaurant in Charlotte?

A: Yet another great fake question! Of course, I seem to be answering a lot of food-related fake questions. I hope folks don't start thinking I'm some gluttonous, greedy bastard. (I am.)

At any rate, I have yet to find a local eatery I would classify as "my favorite."

And honestly, whenever I ask anyone in Charlotte that same question, I always get, "I don't have a favorite restaurant" as a response. And that, as far as I'm concerned, is troubling.

Now when I say "favorite," I don't mean a restaurant you think is decent. A favorite place can't be just decent. You don't love decent. Decent is just "OK." I'm talking about excellent. You know what I'm saying?

I think every city should be home to a few spots that serve food you just go crazy over. Every city should have a place where you could eat every day and never get tired of the grub. I, however, haven't found such a place in the Queen City, and I don't meet people who are passionate about any place in particular.

But what do you (dear reader) think? Am I talking out the side of my neck? What's your favorite restaurant? Shoot me an e-mail (, and tell me your opinion.
