Fresh Chef Kitchen Restaurant Review

: This small bistro located in a nameless strip mall near Lake Norman is popular among the local water-bound crowd. Large food-themed contemporary art lines the far wall, with about a dozen tables filling the small space. Lighter offerings include sandwiches, salads and fresh tortilla wraps. Substantial entrées include a “black and blue”-style center-cut blackened filet topped with blue cheese crumbles and served with fries and grilled asparagus; barbecue ribs; chicken Marsala and more. Wine selections change often, but lean towards accessible and familiar California labels.
