Charlotte Ranks #2 as Fastest Growing Food & Drink City

Food & Drink Hipsters

According to a study by Eventbrite Charlotte is the #2 fastest growing “food and drink city” in America.  We are right behind Miami and one spot ahead of Las Vegas.  That is high praise for a once sleepy little town that closed up shop after 5 pm a decade ago.

So when your snobby friends start talking about their trip to New York City and all the great restaurants they went to that featured Kale on the menu remind them that NYC is soooooo yesterday.  Charlotte is #2!  That is Dr. Evil’s #2 below.

You can find me working the PR angle for restaurants around town and keeping the RT readers informed about the latest happenings.


  1. Go Charlotte!

  2. Hard to believe Charlotte is ranked that high.

  3. Unfortunately, this graph is just showing growth….Charlotte is still more focused on quantity and buzzwords instead of quality (although there are a couple quality restaraunts here!) But it’s certainly a step in the right direction!

  4. This is a far cry from what this city was 14 years ago, when we moved here. We absolutely love it!
