As a self-proclaimed foodie, I am excited about what is happening in Cabarrus County these days! I remember, pre-1995, when it was hard to find a decent steak in Cabarrus County, let alone have all the culinary choices we have today! Historic downtown Concord is beginning to resemble downtown Asheville, with its international cuisine. From Cuban to Italian and, coming soon, the county’s only full-fledged French restaurant.

Only a little more than a year ago, Cabarrus Brewing Company opened the first local brewery of its kind and started welcoming visitors. Others have opened since and more are on the way! That’s why we thought it fitting to feature some of the newest eateries in the county this month. Some are popular, some are lesser known, but they all have a unique approach and we hope it will encourage you to support them. Also be sure to check out a few others that we were unable to fit into this issue: Basilico Italiano, Copper Ale House, Edison Eatery (formerly Sweet Spot Cafe) and Vell’s Soul Food with a Twist.

While we’re on the subject, be sure to check out the monthly Cabarrus Magazine Restaurant Report, sponsored by Realty 76, at In it, you’ll find the top three and bottom three restaurants in Cabarrus County based on health scores given in the past 30 days. Not only that, you’ll see what their violations were so you can be well informed the next time you step out to eat.

Also, we will soon be presenting the Cabarrus Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards. Two of the categories are for restaurants (Best Casual Dining and Best Fine Dining). If you want to make sure your favorites win, register for free on our website. If you don’t see your choice on the ballot, encourage them to set up their free business page so they can be in the running. Until next month!

Bon appetit!
