Now there’s a brewery with the history… (well, at least the building it is in does have one)
A popular, contemporary brewpub in Highland Park Mill, the building which houses the Heist Brewery was in fact a cotton mill that was originally constructed in the early 1900s. Charlotte’s only independent brewpub, Heist offers a smart combination of house-made beers, craft cocktails and “twisted eats.” A place where unexpected combinations are more norm than exceptions, Heist Brewery offers creative “eats” in small plates, along with a range of flatbreads.
Heist’s beer menu has two broad divisions – core beers (such as the Out to Pasture saison), and rotating batch selections. They also offer a branch buffet every Sunday.
Address: 2909 N. Davidson St., Suite 200, Charlotte, NC 28205

If you value something simple yet impactful, then you should definitely give Rooster's Wood Fired Kitchen a try. Located in uptown Charlotte, practically everything about the place says that it’s simple and refined - a combination that is rare to find. The ambience is definitely a visual treat, with its candlelight-illuminated bars, and worn-wood booths and tables. Famous for its wood-fired grill, Rooster's menu changes with every season, and feature classic, no-nonsense, farm-to-table delicacies. Though chicken is the main highlight of this place, they do offer other mains such as steak, pork chop and duck. They also offer a wide range of sides, from fire roasted beets and succotash to buttery-steamed spinach. They even have a great cheese board that can never disappoint.
Yes, that's right. The erstwhile Passion8 is now Luca's Modern Italian Kitchen. Everything else, though, is still the same. Or rather, even better. Not only is Luca's one of the best Italian restaurants in Charlotte and its environs, it is also the best Italian restaurant serving food made from locally-sourced ingredients.
