Our little family went to Charlotte today we ate in Brio Tuscan Grill near South Park Mall, an up and coming area of Charlotte, with great shopping, lovely new apartments and townhouses. This is a chain restaurant, I mostly prefer family run places, but all in all the food is good and you can sit outside near a fountain and slowly enjoy a leisurely lunch in a lovely setting. Its also very baby friendly a big plus for us. I had Omelette with veggies and feta cheese, it came with fresh fruit and sauteed potatoes, it was very nice.
Hubby had trout and sauteed veggies then for dessert we had creme brulee and tiramisu which are served in little cups, very cute. No pictures as I forgot didn't last long especially with little Jasmine there!
We then went to the Mall and got a lovely dress for her first birthday on the 22nd!
If your in the South park Area I recommend Tuscana a lovely Authentic Italian with homemade pasta's but only open for dinner in the evenings. In fact we ate there the night we found out we were pregnant.
Also Barringtons is wonderful and M5. Charlotte has wonderful places to eat, hence the reason we love going there.
