Saturday Night at Soul Gastrolounge
I have heard great things about Soul Gastrolounge since I moved to Charlotte, but until last weekend I hadn’t experienced it for myself.¬† Soul more than exceeded my expectations from start to finish.¬† Besides the food, my favorite part of the evening was the atmosphere.¬† Soul Gastrolounge gives off a one of a kind feel- so comfortable yet sophisticated and trendy. ¬† While waiting on our table we grabbed a drink at the bar. The drink menu is very in-depth¬†and has something for everyone. The bartenders were very helpful and even made us samples of the craft cocktails, ensuring that we would like our choice before ordering.¬†¬† I decided on “The Mule” – fresh juiced ginger and cucumber with Titos in a fancy little copper mug- so refreshing and delicious.
The best part about dining out with fellow foodies is ordering a bunch of different plates and sharing.¬† Soul is the perfect place to do this because everything is served tapas style.¬† A few of my favorite dishes from the evening were the wild mushrooms on toast, the pesto flatbread and the Babaganoush smoked eggplant dip.¬† Not only does Soul provide a large menu of delicious tapas it also has, in my opinion, the best sushi that I have tried in Charlotte so far.¬†¬†¬†I‚Äôm already looking forward to my next trip back to sample more tasty cocktails & tapas.
