Charlotte’s largest new restaurant of 2017 is expected to host their grand opening this coming June to open at the corner of South Poplar and West Fourth streets. ‘Loft & Cellar’ will have over 7,600 square feet on 3 separate floors with 3 separate uses.
The basement will include the kitchen, a private dining room, and a romantic wine cellar. The first floor will have the main dining room and bar, and the second floor will feature a second dining area with a late-night bar and private lounge.
Executive Chef Nicolas Daniels is a local Johnson & Wales University graduate who’s resume includes cooking for The Wooden Vine, Ember Grille, and Georges Brasserie.
His dishes will be inspired by culinary experiences from South America to the Mediterranean to New York and Chicago, according to their website.
Some signature dishes will include Nicaraguan tamales, chicken tikka masala, a reuben-tartare plate, with small entrees starting at $6.
The restaurant will open every night of the week, as well as during lunch hours for business-casual take-out service and Sunday brunch.
