Aria in Charlotte?

I've enjoyed my meals at Aria. It is not a culinary revelation, but it produces really nice, crowd-pleasing fare at a reasonable price and in a fun space. I think it would be perfect for a group of 10.

Daniel Boulud Brasserie to close, Las Vegas

Hmm, I have reservations here coming up this weekend. Do you think a lame duck restaurant is risky?

Charlotte Vietnamese & Thai & Indian

Thai Thai is definitely take out only. You're probably confusing it with Thai Taste, also on East Blvd.

For Indian, I enjoy Copper on East.

Farmers Markets in Charlotte?

I live nearby and enjoy the one at the intersection of Kings Road and Morehead Street. Very inexpensive produce, when compared to the grocery store.

Peking Duck Charlotte NC

Anybody have any recent knowledge of a Chinese restuarant in Charlotte that has Peking Duck on the menu?

Il Nido Charlotte?

I went a couple weeks ago. My wife and I thought it was just okay, but it was not too expensive. The space is kind of bare, but cozy. The food really was just your average red sauce and pasta Italian. I got a veal dish that was smothered in tomato sauce. The meat was thin and generally tasteless. I honestly can't even remember what my wife or anyone else got. As a reference point, I went to Fiamma recently as well and thought it was far superior.
