Today Eater returns to Charlotte, North Carolina to focus on 18 newish bars and restaurants that have been garnering some serious buzz. Once again, writer/photographer Rémy Thurston has kindly offered his picks for the hottest openings of the past 12 months.
This Plaza Midwood newcomer focuses, eponymously, on burgers and beer — and shares a name with the popular festival founded by owner Ken Thomas. With partner Zach Current, the duo offers a variety of house-pickled vegetables to complement their well-thought-out burger combinations. It’s the physical manifestation of keeping the party going — open all year and with more burger buns.
