Cheese has been around for many years. Who was the genius behind this creamy goodness? Some say that the Romans created cheese one day while cultivating milk, while others claim that it has been around since Greek mythology. Wherever it came from it is here to stay. Cheese is one of the most versatile ingredients around, adding flavor to breakfast burritos in the morning, sandwiches in the afternoon and late night desserts like velvety cheesecake — not to mention pizza, pasta and everything in between.  Adding this simple ingredient to almost any dish is sure to compliment a recipe. When you’re craving a cheese fix, check out these great Charlotte restaurants — you won’t be disappointed.

This dish is cooked with tender veal and savory Italian mushrooms. This small town-gem has been operating since 2008 in the South Park area of Charlotte and only serves 45 guests at a time, so reservations are a good idea. It will be worth the effort.
