Delta's is opening tonight uptown

Delta’s is slated to open to the public tonight (April 26), offering "fine Southern cuisine" and live jazz and R&B music in the former G.W. Fins spot at 525 N. Tryon St. The original, in New Jersey, opened in 1999, and Coretta King and Joshua Suggs say they plan to open in Houston, Atlanta and more in the next five years. In Charlotte, lunch, brunch and dinner are planned, and the place includes a banquet room, soundstage and patio dining. The dinner menu ranges from fried catfish and whiting to smothered chicken and pork chops to oxtails, and includes a "Tour of the South" that offers fried chicken, "BBQ pork ribs" and fried catfish.

Two locations of national chain How Do You Roll? make-your-own-sushi spots are scheduled to open this summer: in the Overstreet Mall uptown (BB&T Center, 200 S. College St.) and at Ballantyne (11318 N. Community House Road). The idea: You walk in, follow a line offering a range of ingredients and build your own rolls. (Yes, there'll be grilled chicken, gluten-free and vegan ingredients, too.)

So, a chain restaurant from New Jersey wants to sell US "Southern" food?

No thanks. Who thought that was a good idea?

Stephen, some southern cooks moved "up North". Now, they are coming home again. Lighten up and give the place a chance!
