QUEEN’S FEAST: CHARLOTTE RESTAURANT WEEK®  celebrates 10 years this summer.

It’s here! Charlotte Restaurant Week®  returns this Friday, July 20 and runs through Sunday, July 29, with 124 restaurants offering prix fixe menus of 3 courses or more at dinner for $30 or $35 per person. No matter what part of greater CLT you live in, there’s sure to be a Queen’s Feast deal nearby, since this year’s round up includes restaurants in Mecklenburg, Gaston, Lincoln, Catawba, Iredell, Cabarrus, Union, York, and Rowan counties. Ten first-time restaurant participants have joined this summer’s Queen’s Feast including the new Bulla Gastrobar in SouthPark and Stoke and Fin & Fino in Uptown Charlotte.  

You can check out the entire list of participating restaurants by location here at CharlotteRestaurantWeek.com and peruse their special Queen’s Feast menus. This year, you can even go on and make reservations at your picks via opentable straight from the Charlotte Restaurant week website. The toughest thing about Queen’s Feast?
