Sherwood Forest does not have many restaurant and bar options, but its location close to Cotswold, South Park and Uptown more than compensate for this. Fortunately for locals, Sherwood Forest houses
the popular Asian-inspired restaurant, Koishi. Koishi specializes in classic favorites like garlic chicken and simple sushi rolls. The cherry
blossom sauce here makes mouths water, and the lettuce wraps are out-of-this-world. Locals rave about the volcano rolls, but almost everything on the menu is worth getting at least once.
Directly to the north in the neighborhood of Cotswold and catty-corner from Koishi sits Wolfman Pizza. With three locations throughout the Charlotte area, Wolfman attracts legions of devout diners with their killer pizza and werewolf-theme. Enjoy a five-meat pie, and then indulge in a s'more pizza for dessert. Both children and the young-at-heart love it here so much that most join Wolfman's loyalty program.
Red Rocks Cafe, Bar & Bakery holds a well-deserved reputation as one of the best places in the area to eat. Located southwest of Sherwood Forest on Providence Road, owners here pride themselves on extensive menu options and a quality wine list. Anything from chicken fingers to grouper can be found under this roof. Diners can either sit outside or enjoy the cozy, family-friendly interior.
With no live music venues in the immediate area, locals head uptown for a great selection of hotspots such as the Fillmore. For a spritely cocktail close to home, Leroy Fox in the Providence Village Shopping Center can't be beat. Those seeking a pub-like atmosphere enjoy the Pizza Peel & Tap Room in Cotswold.
