Noble Smoke - Optimist Hall
Very glad I stopped here during my trip to Charlotte. The place has a very pleasant industrial feel to it with many different types of food to purchase. There were so many options that looked delicious it was difficult to choose just one. There is plenty of sitting areas inside as well as outside. I would recommend this place for a causal bite or as a cool place to hang out for a few hours at.
The ambiance is cool, casual, and chill. Lots of nice seating areas. Good variety of restaurants and shops. Ample parking space. You receive texts when your order is ready, which is convenient. And the food is awesome! 10/10
Went for a birthday party; what a great idea! Lots of options for groups, makes transitions from dinner to drinks or dessert super easy. Pizza at Avas is SO good. Spicy beef noodle soup at dumpling lady is something I dream about often. I want to try more places but I always end up at these 2. Committed to sushi and Harriets burgers next time I kept seeing people bringing plates back from those 2 spots that made me drool.
Optimist Hall was a whole new experience for me. The variety was great. We tried many different vendors and they were all good. Fresh hand crafted , real, food. Plus some other shops as well. Indoor and outdoor dining. Bars. The whole package.
Really cool food court/shopping mall here. We were surprised to find this gem of a trendy eatery experience. There are lots of different multicultural cuisines to savor here. I was surprised to find this place packed like a weekend during a week night. Lots of parking spots but we had to drive around for a while to find an available parking spot on a Wednesday! I would definitely be back here for more.
