New and about-to-be

The Deck is open at 1514 East Blvd., from the owners of Boardwalk Billy's and one partner from Brixx. Described by its managing partner as "Cabo Fish Taco meets Oceanaire" and a "fresh market seafood restaurant" with "approachable" prices (about $3-$22), it offers lobster rolls, fish tacos, shrimp and grits, oysters on the half shell and daily fish specials from chef Greg Guthrie, who's had experience at Revolution Pizza and Blue. (Can we name-check any more places in this item?) Lunch and dinner daily;; 704-332-9292.

Libretto’s Pizzeria, slated to open a second location 11 a.m. March 26, at Ballantyne, offers a deal: The first 100 paying customers to come into the Ballantyne store for the first time will get free pizza for a year -- specifically 52 coupons, each good for two slices per week. 15205 John J. Delaney Drive; 704-714-1442.

Alton’s Kitchen & Cocktails is open, serving steakhouse fare and more eclectic dishes, such as New Orleans style barbecue shrimp over basmati rice and BR Cohn cabernet-braised lamb shank, at Jetton Village. 19918 North Cove Road, Cornelius; 704-655-2727.

I know this has nothing to do with the restaurants above, and I know it takes time, but since we, the residents of Indian Trail, approved liquor by the drink, I would have thought we would have heard of some new restaurants opening or going to open, but absolutely NOTHING, nada! I'm tired of fast food and "family friendly" restaurants--I want some liquor and ambiance! Maybe you can do a story on this and find out something?

wow I didn't realize the space where 'The Deck' is was switching it up yet again. Keeping up with its name alone is exhausting. I hope if this place is good enough, it'll last. Rocknlobster was an awful name.
