As I’ve been on a bit of a new restaurant kick lately, I’ve been making my way around Charlotte trying some newer dining options. Haberdish, located in the NoDa neighborhood, opened earlier this year and has quickly become a hot spot in the city. Earlier this month I headed to the colorful NoDa neighborhood to give Haberdish a try. And y’all, my foodie heart was so happy when I left!
Much like Kindred, Haberdish suggest family style dining. After each ordering a cocktail (I opted for the hibiscus honey punch - it had Pimm’s in it, so of course I had to!) my friend and I attempted to come up with a game plan for our meal. With a little help from our friendly waiter we settled on the following: hushpuppies with sweet tea butter, fried chicken tenders, kale salad and sweet potato dumplings. Looking back, we both agreed we could’ve eaten an entire kale salad individually. However, there wasn’t anything we ordered that we would skip on our next visit. Everything was delicious!
It was so nice to get outside of my neighborhood and explore a new restaurant in a distinct part of town. NoDa is a popular arts district in Charlotte, and is home to unique restaurants, bars, and concert venues. Over the years the NoDa area has been more and more developed, but its residents and local businesses are working hard to preserve its individuality. Other hot spots in NoDa include: NoDa Brewing Company, Crepe Cellar Kitchen & Pub, Trade and Lore, Cabo Fish Taco, Neighborhood Theater and the Evening Muse.
Following dinner we took a little walk around NoDa to enjoy the nice weather and the neighborhood. While I’m not taking international trips regularly, it’s been great to explore different areas of my hometown in my spare time! When big trips aren’t possible, you can still get a new perspective by going to unfamiliar places in your city. Luckily there’s no shortage of restaurants, attractions and unique neighborhoods in Charlotte to seek out!
