Critic Suggests There is Room for Improvement at Downtown's Union Provisions

City Paper writer Eric Doksa visits the King Street fledgling.

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

The space at 513 King St. is gorgeous, and the real estate is prime to lure culinary adventurers, but critic Eric Doksa finds Union Provisions "nearly empty" on a recent Friday evening. This could be attributed to the restaurant's initial 1.5 star review from critic Hanna Raskin, but Doksa wants to explore if the kitchen improved since new chef Chari Skinner took the helm.

Thankfully, for the staff at Union Provisions, Doksa finds a "quality" flatbread and perfectly cooked snapper, but he notes a lack of consistency. If readers remember Doksa's review of The Palace Hotel, you'll know he's a stickler for accuracy. The critic states, "I see potential in Union Provisions," and wants the eatery to succeed, but he thinks they'll need to make a few adjustments first.
