Amer­i­can. A warm and se­duc­tive in­te­rior is the set­ting for the in­no­va­tive cuisine of Owner and Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Trey Wil­son. Sea­sonal dishes make use of lo­cal and or­ganic in­gre­di­ents, and the seafood dishes (bar­be­cued oc­to­pus and spicy tuna meat­balls) are stand­outs.

New Amer­i­can. Lo­cated in a lov­ingly re­stored his­toric bun­ga­low, Owner/Chef Greg Zan­itsch serves Cal­i­for­nia-in­spired new-Amer­i­can cuisine, with a wine list to match. For a true South­ern ex­pe­ri­ence, an­gle for a ta­ble on the ve­randa. D (daily). www. char­lot­te­figtree.com. 1601 E. 7th St., 704.332.3322. Map 2 K7


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.
