Posted: Jul. 10th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

If you've never heard of Charlotte's Eater, don't worry, you don't need to. Just understand that when the Eater directs you to a meal like those served up at The Peculiar Rabbit, a gastropub and fine place for a bit to drink, trust the locals' advice and give the place a shot the next time you're in town. You wont regret eating in the best places Charlotte has to offer.

Here now, Eater's second-ever Heatmap of Charlotte, North Carolina, which contains nine newish restaurants and bars that have been garnering serious buzz. (The first came out back in 2011.) All of these have been open for a year or less, except for 5Church, which at 14-ish months old is still one of the city's must-go places to eat and drink. For the list, Eater consulted with local food blogger and freelance writer Keia Mastrianni of Ink and Fork (formerly The Sunny Side Up) on her picks for the hottest bars and restaurants the city has to offer right this second.
