New Thai, Cuban getting close

Rick Taing, part of the ownership of Sushi 101s in Charlotte, plans to go into the former Sugar Magnolia spot at Blakeney (Rea Road) with a Thai place called Blu Thai Basil. Expect a mid-March opening, and a menu similar to Taing's Rock Hill place, Lime Leaf Asian Fusion.

Look for a mid February opening for Cuban Pete's Cafe in Plaza-Midwood and a menu that will be traditional Cuban food, plus a "little Cuban rum bar," according to general manager Gary Sikorski, along with a sangria bar, a Cuban coffee bar and more. 1308 The Plaza; 704-910-5233.

I would love to find Cuban bread up here. All the labeled breads I have tried up here so far, do not have that cracker crust/soft inside texture. Oh well... I can't wait to tried Cuban Pete's.
