Is There a Foodie There-There near Charlotte?

Am new to the Charlotte area and as a disciple of the Missionary for the Delicious, I find myself with few altars at which to worship. Beyond Ed's reco of Price's (fried chicken) and a place I wandered-into called Vinnie's (raw bar but everything's really fried), I need the foodies in-the-know who know the greater Charlotte region to step-up and volunteer some recon. In Road Food, Jane and Michael Stern talked about a place called the Coffee Cup that I also can't seem to find...

Things seem to be further complicated or compounded by the fact that there are neither deeply-rooted ethnic groups nor old-guard neighborhoods anywhere which would normally include a batch of can't miss eateries, shops and specialty purveyors.

Please help me expand the southern food safari...
