Pickle Bar? Check! Grass-fed jerky? Check! Artisan ice cream sandwiches? Check! Earl’s Grocery opened in July to scratch the itch of every hipster, bougie craving in the neighborhood and, boy has it hit the spot. Not only does the shop have every artisanal food item one could want, from fancy cheeses to handmade pastas to hard-to-find craft beverages, but the owners have hired rock star chef Marc Jacksina to handle the prepared foods. At this very moment, Jacksina is master of Charlotte’s sandwich domain.
