Amelie is an incredibly cute French casual restaurant in the NODA (North of Davidson) neighborhood df Charlotte, NC. Coming from NYC, NODA did not feel like much of a neighborhood to me. Case in point, Amelie was located in a strip mall (much like everything else in Charlotte). Thankfully, the restaurant is full of charm, and the food was delicious.
Upon entering, one can see that whoever came up with the concept for Amelie seriously though it through. The large industrial space was filled with whimsical French inspired touches. For example, an etch-a-sketch with a rococo painting in a gilt frame. There was a statue of a dog on a leash, and the piece de resistance, a pastry case with the prettiest of baked goods and desserts.
