North Carolina Restaurant Is Among The Best New Openings Of 2023
Yelp has released their list of the best new restaurants of 2023, and a Charlotte establishment made the cut. In fact, among the 25 places across the country to be featured, this restaurant ranked in the top 10.
Yelp explained that 2023 has been a successful year for the restaurant industry. This is, of course, great news coming out of what was an incredibly challenging pandemic stretch. “To celebrate the rising stars of the culinary world—and a 15% growth in new business openings each month this year (compared to 2022)—we’ve compiled a list of the Best New Restaurants of 2023,” Yelp said.
Ever Andalo Ranked #8
“With a menu inspired by Andalo, a village in Italy’s Dolomite region, this namesake restaurant specializes in 2 types of regional ingredients: fresh local produce and premium Italian-imported products,” Yelp explained.
Here is what you need to know about Ever Andalo:
They are in the NoDa district at 3116 N. Davidson Street. Currently, they are open Tuesday through Sunday for dinner only. Their hours are 5 pm – 10 pm, Tuesday through Thursday, and Sunday, and 5 pm – 11 pm on Friday and Saturday. You can also order online.
The concept of Ever Andalo is a clash of locally sourced ingredients and northern Italian influence. The fresh baked focaccia bread served with a flight of olive oil and sea salt is the perfect way to settle in. The “cool” appetizer section is where you will find chilled oysters, and the “hot” side of the menu has roasted oysters. Then, there is always a featured seafood pasta special to add to the creative entrée options. The Calabrian Chili Papparde and Sunny Cavatelli almost look too artistically perfect to eat.
Various chicken, lamb chop, and eggplant dishes are also on the menu to enjoy before you indulge in one of their decadent desserts. Orange Olive Oil Cake, anyone?
Lastly, the drink menu at this Charlotte spot named among the best new restaurants in the country this year is also full of options. There are two pages of wine, beers, cocktails, and coffees.
