This Charleston, South Carolina-based restaurant has opened its first Queen City location.
Verde is tucked into a 2,200-square-foot space in Ballantyne Commons East on John J. Delaney Drive in Ballantyne.
That spot marks the fast-casual concept’s first Tar Heel State location.
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Jennifer Ferrebee created Verde with a focus on eating and operating as green as possible.
That means a menu packed with salads, grain bowls, wraps and fresh-pressed juices — all made from 40-plus seasonally and regionally sourced ingredients. That includes items from Sunflour Baking Company and Lenny Boy Brewing Co.
Think signature items such as the Southern Harvest salad with roasted chicken, apples, pecans, cornbread croutons and sweet tea vinaigrette or the Lentil Giant, a power grain blend topped with veggies and a turmeric dressing.
Items also can be customized using a build-your-own option. The menu will be updated seasonally, with new offerings every other month.
Prices range from $6.95 to $8.95.
Verde’s Ballantyne store will offer dine-in, take-out, online ordering as well as catering.
