Charlotte is, at its core, a modern city on its way to having one of the sleekest restaurant scenes in the entire state. In its metamorphosis, Charlotte is ditching the old American cuisine styles and embracing a diversity of new ethnic foods and menus while maintaining a strong sense of character and modernity.
Rooster’s Wood-fired Kitchen serves food exactly as its name suggests: with the smoky, charred finish that only a wood-fired stove can exude. Executive Chef Jim Noble opened this uptown joint with a vision: to offer the best a la carte options at the most reasonable prices. In doing so, he has breathed new life into the family-style restaurant category, using his animated and open-facing kitchen to give a distinctly homey feel to the place. Come here for the barbecued offerings, including chicken wings marinated in Chef Noble’s homemade BBQ sauce.
