·1 min read

VANA, which opened in Charlotte’s South End in 2020, has announced its expansion to the Lake Norman area with VANA LKN.

ELZ Restaurant Group is the team behind Charlotte restaurants Bardo and VANA. “I live in the area and really want to lay roots in this growing market,” ELZ managing partner Jayson Whitesides said in a statement.

Get ready to enjoy its rustic cuisine with a slightly different menu at the new Cornelius neighborhood spot in 2022. The restaurant’s wood-fired kitchen will be a focal point at the new restaurant, as well.

“Our guests can expect to have a full sensory dining experience,” Whitesides said. “From the moment they walk through the door to when the check arrives, we want to show our guests an unforgettable time.”

Chef and partner Michael Noll will oversee the menu, which will be announced in coming months.
