Charleston Forge and Rooster's Wood-Fired Grill

Jeff Greer - Saturday, February 15, 2014

When the second location of Roosters Wood-Fired Grill in Uptown Charlotte was in the planning stages, it was part of the design theme to use as many local resources as possible. Charleston Forge and Wright Table, among other local artisans and manufacturers, were brought together to light, decorate and create for this Charlotte treasure.

Over the last few months, the Rooster's Team, designer Holly Carter, and Charleston Forge, have worked together from concept to install to create metal forged lighting systems (a new, yet very successful venture), and a quite impressively sized wine rack for the restaurants impressive wine selection.

Rooster's, the brainchild of Chef Jim Nobel (of Nobel's Restaurant in High Point, NC) and team, provides upscale mouth watering, reasonably priced fair, in a beautiful atmosphere for the Charlotte area. Imagine walking off the streets of the bustling large city of Charlotte, most often thought of as the banking capital of the southeast, into a warmly lit restaurant filled with wooden tables, hand-forged metals, and beautiful design; all created and welded by the hands of locals with a distinctly upscale southern appeal.
