1 4 34 Charlotte City Guide 2018 Jamie Lynch, whose accolades include a run as a "Top Chef " contender and multiple nods for Best Chef by Charlotte magazine, found Crown Town fertile breeding ground for his culinary vision at 5Church. Don't miss the perfectly seared Prime "60-Second" NY Strip Steak. Here national acclaim extends to all dining varieties. Greg Auten, the first Charlotte chef to be featured on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" for two different restaurants, serves a Ding Dong- style burger smothered in crunchy peanut butter and Sriracha at Pinky's Westside Grill. Honoring Charlotte's Culinary Kings No list of top restaurants is complete without the way-paving kings of the local food scene. Frank Scibelli's legacy as a restaurateur includes Mama Ricotta's Restaurant, where the Italian fare is so good you'll think your nonna made it; Midwood Smokehouse, where the brisket burnt ends keep customers coming back; and Paco's Tacos & Tequila, where you can add a stuffed bacon- wrapped jalapeño to your Tex-Mex inspired tacos—if you dare. In the NoDa neighborhood, restaurateur Jeff Tonidandel is shaping the food scene with sweet and savory crepes at European bistro-inspired Crêpe Cellar Kitchen & Pub. Nosh on scratch- made beer food at Growlers Pourhouse, or hop in a time machine to try Southern mill dishes like livermush toast, boiled peanuts and sonker at his latest concept, Haberdish. Longstanding Charlotte chef Bruce Moffett received a James Beard Foundation Award nomination (Best Chef: Southeast) for his Charlotte eats. Feast on roasted Arctic char with shrimp at Barrington's Restaurant, enjoy rustic Italian fare at Stagioni, or share small plates like lamb belly dan dan at Good Food on Montford.
