The Loyalist Market
Matthews will soon be home to a brand new charcuterie and cheese shop from Christopher Sottile, formerly of Creminelli Fine Meats. The Loyalist Market will be located downtown at 435 N. Trade St.. The new spot will sell country hams, cured meats and a wide variety of N.C. cheeses. Meat and cheese will be cut-to-order; also planned are local and regional coffees, jams, pickles, olive oils, beers and more. During the day you can expect a variety of sandwiches and meats and cheeses for purchase by the pound; the shop will become a cheese and wine bar at night.
White Duck Taco Shop
White Duck Taco Shop is the latest taco joint with plans to open in Charlotte. The Asheville favorite has not picked a location yet but is very much on the lookout for the perfect spot in the Queen City. White Duck will join a list of taco shops with plans to open in Charlotte: El Felix out of Atlanta will open in Strawberry Hill and SouthBound, a taco and tequila hangout will join us in South End this summer. Let’s not forget we already have Babalu, Paco’s Tacos and Tequila and Que Onda to name a few.
