During a recent e-mail conversation with Jon Dressler, I learned that his restaurant Dressler's is expanding.
No they're not taking more space in Birkdale -- they're adding a new Dressler's restaurant at the Metropolitan, in Charlotte. In addition to the current Dressler's in Birkdale, and Max's Ally in Concord, this Dressler's will make a total of three restaurants for the local restaurateur.
The Metropolitan is in an up-and-coming area, and just a stone's throw from Dilworth. This could be a very good location for a high caliber restaurant like Dressler's.
According to Jon, the restaurant will be opening in February, and will again feature his mother's famous cheesecake and carrot cake.
In addition to this news, I hope to be interviewing Jon soon. So, stay tuned for updates!
