PASSION8

Mediter­ranean. Af­ter 15 years of op­er­at­ing their restau­rant in Fort Mill, S.C., Jes­sica and Luca An­nun­zi­ata have moved much closer to downtown Char­lotte—and the El­iz­a­beth neigh­bor­hood should consider it­self so lucky. Pas­sion uses lo­cal in­gre­di­ents to serve up such dishes as grass-fed rib­eye with roasted eggplant caponata and gor­gonzola po­lenta. D (Tu-Sa), Brunch (Su). www. thep­as­sion8.com. 1523 El­iz­a­beth Ave., 704.910.3161. Map 2, I8
