Rooster's is located in the heart of Charlotte's uptown, in the middle of everything. Be aware that the ground level entrance is the bar only, and if you come in that way you have to walk up two flights of stairs...or walk around to the corner facing 5th St and take the BOA building escalator up to the second level. Nice, dark, cozy atmosphere that feels smaller than it is. The Wood-fired kitchen gives off some great aroma and will instantly spark the appetite. The menu has some very unique preparations of traditional dishes (BBQ chicken for ex.), and the ingredients look and taste fresh. The sides are fantastic...Try the Yukon Gold Puree. A good wine and beer list round out the menu. My only criticism...My salmon was probably the best I've ever eaten...Cooked to perfection. But for $17 the portion could not have been more than 4 oz.....and when you add in the ala-carte side of the above-mentioned potatoes, I walked away hungry after dropping over $35 on dinner and two draft beers. I don't really go to a restaurant like this to "fill 'er up", but price-value is still important...Would I go back ?? Absolutely !! In terms of quality of ingredients, presentation, service and atmosphere, Rooster's is on the money.
