Interior with chandelier at Amelies French Bakery[1]

The adorable Amelie’s French Bakery.

When I was in
North Carolina recently on the trail of Nicholas Sparks and Katniss Everdeen, I spent some time in Charlotte, the very leafy, very lovely largest city in the state. And while I was mostly there to see the secret spots where the
Hunger Games and
Homeland were filmed in town, it could just have easily been a culinary tour: some seriously good eating went down in the Queen City!
