25 Best New Restaurants: 2017 – Charlotte Magazine

“What new restaurant should I try?”

We’re asked that question often, and it’s a tough one to answer. Diners tend to find a new place they enjoy, then years pass before they try anywhere else. And the restaurant scene changes in those years.

Yafo Kitchen is making a statement that fast casual can also be good. Comida is a Los Angeles-worthy concept in our own Plaza Midwood. @Dawn is putting fine cuisine on the breakfast table.

Here, you’ll discover 25 restaurants that opened between November 1, 2015, when we finalized our 2016 Best Restaurants list, and November 1, 2016. We ate at restaurants when they opened and kept going back until we found the ones worthy of making this list. We ate there again to rank them against one another. Then again, just to make sure.

We like to think we did this for you. So get out there, and taste how the city is changing.
