As another top place to eat in Charlotte, Carpe Diem has been around since the late 1980s with its unique fusion of tastes. The Charlotte restaurant features strong Latin and Caribbean flavors, although it includes dishes from around the world, such as Asian soba noodles with tuna. Here's our advice: order the specials. They are usually outstanding. On a recent visit, we had Szechuan Tuna with wasabi creme, cucumber relish, and roasted shitake mushrooms. Yum! The décor at Carpe Diem is a bit dated, but intimate and relaxing. Carpe Diem’s bar features an extensive wine and cocktail selection. Go for "Appy Hour" from 5PM to 6:30PM Monday through Thursday, when the appetizers at the bar are half price. The dessert menu is to die for. Be sure to try the creme brulée.
