Off the Eaten Path
This Charlotte blogger started her food blog only six months after moving to The Queen City. Public defender and blogger Chrissie decided she needed even more of a reason to get out and explore her new city. By combining two of her passions (food and writing), she was able to create one of the foremost food blogs in the city. Her honest reviews and straightforward dialogue connect readers to some of the best restaurants, food trucks, drink patios, and hole-in-the-wall joints in the city. To find your next go-to spot for just about anything, visit Off the Eaten Path!
