“Old establishment with new/nicer personality, but food just okay.”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

Frankie and Louie's took on a new identity as "Plate". The same owners decided to upgrade the interior and menu. We were there on their 2nd night after re-opening and were surprised to find a more upscale restaurant, a more sophisticated menu and the same friendly staff. The food was not as good as previously, but it was just their second night with a new menu.... also, I think the change surprised us and we'll be more sdjusted to the changes our next visit.... so yes, we will go back!

“Good value - Cajun inspired food”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Well, Frankie & Louie's has changed names, decor and menu. It is now "Plate", with a totally redesigned interior and decor. Same owners take pride in their vocation and a great owner-chef that cares about his patrons and their food preferences and allergies, etc.
The new restaurant is truly gorgeous. They had a super singer roaming both inside and outside with a wireless mike. We were there on their second night after re-opening, so we experienced a few glitches with the menu, but it's going to be a great restaurant on the edge of Charlotte, NC.
Now, I have to go back on TA and add them as "Plates" ......
