New openings

LaVecchia’s fourth restaurant concept has opened: Jax Backstreet Tavern is at 55 Glenway St. in Belmont, serving pizzas, salads, mini-hot-dog sliders, wings, sandwiches and more, with 24 beers on draft and plans already for a second location, in uptown Charlotte, slated for the fall. You can get a look at the menu, and more details, at; 704-825-1776.

The SBB Smokehouse is now open at 10099 Weddington Road in Concord; 704-979-2569. It is related to the Myrtle Beach operation of the same name, but is “more a biker-themed restaurant” than that, says general manager Brandon Salter. This has real motorcycles inside, 13 TVs and a menu ranging from fried and smoked wings and chicken fingers to house-smoked brisket, pork, chicken and housemade sausage, ribs and more.
