This post should’ve been written a couple of weeks ago, but, better late than never! I wanted to share my two cents for a date night in Charlotte. On a Thursday earlier this month Todd and I went to Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for beers, then to a new restaurant to our city, Futo Buta, for dinner.
Olde Mecklenburg was fun and relaxed. It has a great atmosphere, and plenty of room and seating. It would be suitable for families as well – an abundance of picnic tables and corn hole outside. Futo Bata is a ramen house located off South Blvd. It seems to be a bit overpriced, but we rarely go out to dinner, so we don’t mind the occasional expense. The food was delicious (we liked the Fire & Ice and the steamed buns the best), and I certainly overindulged, and had gluten for the first time since our New York trip last year. The beers, the food, and the company were worth the cheat night! Todd and I would both recommend this restaurant.
Steamed Buns with Duck Confit
Fire and Ice Ramen

We attempt to try new places on our date nights, but we may just have to repeat this one soon!
