Nowhere in the state exists an enclave of neighborhoods with more culinary diversity than East Charlotte. We are proud of our food on the Eastside; our locally owned restaurants are a critical part of our community's identity. In years past, our annual "Taste of the World" celebration allowed diners and their tastebuds to travel from West Africa to Southeast Asia in one night. While we hope to reboot the event in the near future, the index of restaurants below will help you plan your own culinary tour of East Charlotte. Feel free to ask us for our recommendations! Note - while we proudly claim Plaza Midwood as a jewel of the Eastside, the neighborhood has its own exhaustive list of restaurants which are featured here.
