Lots of great food from different places. Boxcar Betty's has great chicken sandwiches. The Dumpling Lady dumplings are as legendary as they sound. Their sauce is spicy - watch out. The grilled cheese at Papi Queso will make you want to eat grilled cheese all the time like you did as a child. Outside seating is awesome on a nice night where you can see some of the great Charlotte skyline all lit up.
This venue is absolutely perfect. I love the feel of a mall food court on a greater level. The selection of food ranges from fried pickles to lobster. There is a good amount of seating and parking. Give them a try you won't be disappointed.
Optimist is the epitome of a cool hipster hangout, except its for more than just hipsters. Theres a great variety of food vendors, fun unique stores, tons of natural lighting and funky decor. The aesthetic at Optimist is great for taking pictures, enjoying a quick bite, or staying to work on your laptop for hours. Ive enjoyed my experience every time.
Love the collection of merchants and the various different seating options. This is an extremely well designed historic renovation.
What an amazing spot. Optimist hall is located in optimist park right outside uptown Charlotte and blocks from Noda. If your craving a unique meal and undecided on what to eat. Go to optimist hall you will have several restaurants to choose from. You can eat outside in the center of the courtyard and get a cool view of the buildings in uptown. There is even a large bar inside. Cant wait to go back.
