BISTRO LA BON

Mediter­ranean. Ap­pear­ances can be de­ceiv­ing, but don’t write off this lit­tle bistro be­cause it’s tucked into the cor­ner of a strip mall. In­side, you’ll find gourmet menu items like the laven­der chicken and the pan-seared Scot­tish sal­mon. Sun­day brunch is the restau­rant’s crown­ing glory with dishes like spinach and caramelized-onion bene­dict or bis­cuits with turkey sausage gravy. L (W-F), D (M-Sa), brunch (Sa-Su). www. bistro­labon.com. 1322 Cen­tral Ave., 704.333.4646. Map 1, D6

CO­MIDA

Latin Amer­i­can. Owner Ale­sha Sin Vanata’s dream con­cept came to fruition with Co­mida, a high-en­ery, hip spot that com­bines the lo­cal food move­ment and Latin Amer­i­can fla­vors. Masa is ground in-house and is cer­ti­fied or­ganic and non-GMO while crispy duck breast, grilled Cor­nish game hen and carne asada sup­port the phi­los­o­phy of us­ing sim­ple in­gre­di­ents in big ways. D (Tu-Su). www.co­mi­da­clt.com. 1205 Thomas Ave., 980.498.6576.

SOUL CEN­TRAL

South­ern Soul­food. The Caribbean fu­sion with South­ern Clas­sics sets the soul food apart at this cafe­te­ria-style restau­rant. Each meal at Soul Cen­tral comes with a choice of meat (every­thing from beef tips to jerk pork chops), two sides (think col­lard greens, mac and cheese, and much more), corn bread and tea. L and D (MSa). www.soul­cen­tral­food.com. 2903 Cen­tral Ave., 980.349.4015.
