Rooster's en route

The second Rooster’s Wood-Fired Kitchen is on the horizon, with construction slated to begin this summer at 1 Bank of America Center’s Urban Garden at 5th and College streets uptown. “We want a second location in Charlotte before we take the Rooster’s concept to other cities in the Southeast,” said Jim Noble, owner and chef, in a press release. “We think the Urban Garden is one of the best locations in Center City and ... we feel very confident as an alternative to higher-priced restaurants in the downtown area." Hendrick Construction will be doing the 5,000-square-foot place, designed by The Johnson Studio of Atlanta, with two levels (access from College Street on the first floor and from the Urban Garden on the second), antique reclaimed barn wood, hand-forged iron and built-in wooden wine racks.
