Now open at Cotswold and uptown

Table 274 is open at Cotswold, in the quite large former Charley’s, serving lunch and dinner six days a week and brunch on Sundays. Look for a menu focused on “handmade” fare, such as a beet-infused pasta with carrot and ricotta filling, flatbread pizzas fired over hickory, N.C. flounder with warm tomato and foraged mushroom salad, grilled pork tenderloin with collard green and truffle ravioli, burgers and more. Former Charley's owners are in partnership with the new guys, who aim to use regional products: "We're trying to support the little guy, because we are the little guy," says general manager Cameron Crummett.
274 S. Sharon Amity Road; 704-817-9721.

And the relocated LaVecchia's Seafood Grille is open at The Hearst Tower, with chef Michael Rayfield in charge. It's serving lunch 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. weekdays and dinner 5-11 p.m. nightly. 214 N. Tryon St.; 704-370-6776.

That's great news, we have missed the original Charlie's Restaurant. It was reliably good, consistent, and good quality food. Looking forward to trying Table 274.

When did Charley's close?

I tried to dine at Table 274 the other evening with some friends from the Cotswold neighborhood. The manager named Cameron was very rude and arrogant, and told us that we were not the kind of clientele that he wanted because we were senior citizens. I will definitely tell anyone that asks to avoid that restaurant.

That last comment from Ann is a base accusation and completely untrue. I have never uttered those words before, let alone discouraged anyone from dining at our restaurant or any restaurant I've been involved with. I treat every guest with the same warmth and care as I would my own family. This comment is also identical to one left on our Facebook page and is from someone who seeks to damage our fledgeling business. I don't understand why anyone would behave so childishly, but rest assured that every guest that visits Table 274 will be treated with respect and genuineness. A public forum, let alone Ms. Schwab's blog, is no place for this sort of immature bickering but with such lies being spread I thought it necessary to defend myself and our restaurant. Once again, as always, everyone is welcome at Table 274.
