Andrew Blair's - New Kid In Town - SCORES BIG

Here is a real Godfather tip

The real deal and a must try. A brand new place on Montford Drive. It is called Andrew Blair's and they are offering what they call comfortable dining.
The owner also owns a well established bar next door called Angry Ale's. The bar business is very different from the restaurant business. Happily though he was smart enough to hire some Johnson and Wales recent grads - Top Guns. These guy's know how to cook and are putting out some fine food.
They have several salads and sandwiches for $10 or under. I'm talking Monte Cristo, Meatloaf with melted Havarti cheese, Turkey and brie or splurge and for $13 go for a fresh lobster roll. They have some great - the Lobster macaroni and cheese or the stuffed Pork tenderloin or Shrimp Gnocchi. I had a Halibut special that just knocked me out the fish was moist and flaky yet the skin was crispy and almost cracker like.
You heard it from the Godfather first this place is going to be big. The combination of great food, truly comfortable space and amazing service is a winner.
Our waiter Donny was nothing short of flawless. His knowledge of food, the menu and his attention to detail was perfection. Word of mouth on this place will spread fast, get in there before the crowds come and they will soon.
Take it from the Godfather this is the Real Deal.
One final note - Yes I am the Godfather of LUNCH Please take note Andrew Blair's is only open for dinner Tuesday thru Sunday.

Went Tuesday evening for dinner (duh) - I had the Lindsey Salad followed by the Stuffed Pork Tenderloin and their Chocolate "Cupcake" for desert. This meal rocked. As I've told my friends, THE best "fancy" meal I've had in the past year or maybe longer. The salad was great, but the pork - oh man, tender, moist and the taste, oh the taste....Awesome The prosciutto was the perfect touch. Thanks GF for pointing this place out.

Glad you liked it. I think Mrs. G and I will be back this weekend. Perhaps I will go for the pork you raved about.

I have eaten there once and was less than impressed. The wedge salad was generic, and the filet "trio" had an identity crisis.....I will wait until they get their stuff in order until I return

Iceberg lettuce, bacon, blue cheese dressing. When ordering such exciting fare it is easy to be less than excited.

Hi there,
Found your link from the Charlotte Spoon blog. I had a hard time trying to figure out how to leave a comment. What I wanted to let you know was that my husband is from Long Island and he thinks he's found the best pizza place in all of Charlotte. Thought you would like to try it. It's called the Brooklyn Pizza Parlor 7725 Colony Rd
Charlotte, NC 28226

We drive 30 minutes one way to go there, and he won't eat pizza from anywhere else.

Thanks for the heads up. I agree Brooklyn Pizza has some good pie. My favorite pizza in Charlotte is at Luigi's Pizza
8170 S Tryon St
Let me know what you and your hubby think.
