South End welcomes Ruby Sunshine, all-day breakfast seven days a week
An all-day breakfast spot is headed to Charlotte’s South End.
Ruby Sunshine has snapped up a 5,000-square-foot space at 332 W. Bland St. That restaurant — the first for the brand in North Carolina — will have 187 seats, with indoor and outdoor seating available.
No timetable was available for when that restaurant will open.
“Charlotte is known for its thriving and eclectic culinary scene, and we could not be more excited to be a part of it,” says Jennifer Weishaupt, owner.
Ruby Sunshine is the latest concept by Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group, also behind the Ruby Slipper Cafe in New Orleans. She and husband Erich founded the cafe 11 years ago, revitalizing a blighted corner store following Hurricane Katrina.
Ruby Sunshine dishes up breakfast all day. It offers Big Easy-inspired twists on Southern brunch classics. Think BBQ Shrimp & Grits, Eggs Cochon Benedict and Bananas Foster Pain Perdu as well as classics from pancakes to French toast.
Morning cocktails include the Brandy Milk Punch, Morning Margarita, mimosas and Bloody Marys.
“We’re looking forward to introducing the Charlotte community to Ruby Sunshine and the New Orleans flair that our restaurants are famous for,” Weishaupt says.
Ruby Sunshine incorporates fresh, local ingredients when possible and will partner with local purveyors in North Carolina.
The Chambers Group’s Ian Whetsel and Diana Searight represented Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group in the deal.
