Charlotte Magazine recently issued their 50 Best Restaurants in Charlotte North Carolina: 2023 list. Of course, being the food-obsessed person I am, I had to browse to see if my favorites made the list. And, as they point out in the article, these days we view dining out as a luxury. With inflation high and money tight, we really think long and hard when choosing our eating out experiences. So, hopefully by compiling restaurants to try in 2023, you can get some guidance. There’s nothing more disappointing than taking that hard earned money and spending it on a meal that didn’t measure up. In my opinion, the most important parts of dining out include great food, good service, and atmosphere. The Charlotte Magazine list included quite a few I honestly haven’t tried yet. However, a few that I can actually speak personally about appeared. So, I’ll share my experience with those spots and add a couple of my recently discovered favorites in this list of restaurants to try in 2023 in Charlotte North Carolina.
