The first brewery in Plaza Midwood, Legion Brewing lies right in the heart of the place. This is a brewery that places great focus on the value of friendship, the company itself came from the ethos that sharing great beer with your friends a great pleasure of life. Sporting a rather rustic setting, Legion has an urban farmhouse-style brewery and taproom, along with a mezzanine which overlooks the brew house. Armed with an in-house caterer (ROOTS), Legion serves some great food.
The best thing about the place perhaps is the fact that you can take your pets (four-legged, mind you) and children too.
The 15-barrel neighborhood brewery is a meeting place of the “olde world” methods and the seasonal and local influences, which come together to craft high-quality uniquely-flavored beers.

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.
