Top-notch steaks in Charlotte

When a restaurant is situated in a location as prime as one just off the lobby of Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, one can expect that the food and atmosphere are just as memorable. Such is the case with BLT Steak, whose namesake (Laurent Tourondel, as in Bistro Laurent Tourondel) is known worldwide for his classic French twist on steakhouse dining. Though steaks are what the restaurant has come to be known for, it’s just as much about how those delectable cuts are prepared and presented — delicately grilled and served in petite cast-iron pans that have collected some of the precious juices — that leave diners everywhere craving more.

For the non-beef eater, there’s plenty to choose from, including the tuna tartare appetizer that when paired with the restaurant’s Gruyère popovers is large enough for a full meal. The lively, casual ambiance is reason to dine at the Charlotte restaurant, too: Some of the city’s biggest movers and shakers come here to cut deals.
