When traveling to the Queen City, take a trip to the neighborhood of North Davidson (or NoDa as the locals call it). The neighborhood teems with renowned restaurants, but make sure the ones on your list to check out include the Goodyear House. This restaurant is housed in a restored mill home in the heart of NoDa. It focuses on locally sourced, Southern ingredients. The food is delicious and paired perfectly with the most desirable ambiance.
If you choose to dine outside, the expansive patio beneath a canopy of trees features a fairytale-like setting with a natural landscape as the centerpiece, with twinkling lights and lanterns adding to the rustic aesthetic. Inside, pull up a black leather chair at the bar or choose a wood throne to sit at a large table with your party. Now, we must talk about their mouth watering menu that showcases their modern American cuisine focus. The starter snacks are definitely worth their while as they offer uniqueness such as a shaken fry bag and devilish toast. Of course, their main plates shine, as well. You can order the pork katsu for some bold flavors, shrimp and grits for that Southern charm, or their hefty burger for an American classic. Whatever you want and whatever your vibe is for the night, The Goodyear House delivers when deciding where to eat in this city.
