As we placed lemons in our diet coke, I looked over my shoulder only to see a familiar Charlotte sports figure sitting with a friend at the table next to us- Carolina Panther's wide receiver Steve Smith! Now if that wasn't a pleasant surprise. Till and I quietly maintained our professional, yet sunshiney composure as we decompressed from a hectic morning and fueled up for the rest of the workday. Had he not been deep in conversation with a friend, we probably would have fired up a quaint little conversation but alas, we just smiled knowingly at each other because of a local celebrity sighting (as we texted and tweeted like the giggly teenyboppers that we are at heart). I must say, at 5'9'', Smith was quiet and unassuming and a "compact class act". We always enjoy our 2 minutes of the day checking out the Star Tracks on People.com, what a treat to be enjoying good food and delightful conversation and have a star track moment of our own. Another story to add to the adventures of NiNi & Till!
Celebrity sightings aside, Wolfgang Puck's Carolina Bistro is a great lunch spot and the lunch duos are an excellent value. Fresh and made to order, it never disappoints a foodie like myself. Another thing I love about this place? The motto; Live, Love, Eat!
