Remember when Atlanta culinary magnate Ford Fry eyed Charleston for an expansion of his Tex-Mex restaurant Superica? Looks like Charlotte gets an outpost instead and in just a few weeks. This will be the first location of the Superica outside of Atlanta.
On Monday, May 14, the newest Superica will open in Charlotte’s South End at 101 West Worthington Ave., taking over a 7,000-square-foot space designed by Atlanta firm Smith Hanes Studio. Dubbed a “taco, fajita and enchilada haven,” per a press release, the restaurant will have a communal courtyard and spacious patio for al fresco margaritas and Tex-Mex plates.
Superica first opened at Krog Street Market in Atlanta in February 2015, and Fry plans to take the Tex-Mex restaurants across the South. Back in 2015, his team said that they were looking at Charleston, Nashville, and Houston. No visible movement has since been made on a move to the Lowcountry.
