Restaurant to open in downtown Davidson
DAVIDSON Three Charlotte food industry veterans plan to open the Flatiron Kitchen & Tap House by summer in the new Stowe's Corner building downtown, Observer community partner DavidsonNews.net reports.
Tim Groody, former executive chef at Sonoma and chef/owner of Pie Town in Charlotte, is joining industry veterans Michael LaVecchia and Chad Hollingsworth in the venture, the Web site said last week.
The restaurant will occupy the ground floor of the $4.5million Stowe building, which has 21,000 square feet.
"It's just going to be real simple, comfort food, on maybe a more creative level," Groody told the site.
He plans a signature dish called the Wagyu Flatiron steak. The restaurant also will serve fresh seafood, he said.
LaVecchia and Hollingsworth built Charlotte-based wholesaler Seafoods.com over the past decade.
