Love supporting the great state of North Carolina? When you dine at JP Charlotte, you’re in for a treat.

Under the talented Chef Aaron Cox, the team in the kitchen uses ingredients sourced from all over the state. Just flip the menu over and see for yourself.

“At JP Charlotte, I am dedicated to using locally farmed and sourced foods on all of my menus,” said Chef Aaron. “Being from the Carolinas, I take pride in using local sources and want to promote all of the wonderful foods being produced throughout our region. We have partnered with over 20 local farmers, cheese makers and specialty growers to ensure we are reducing our carbon footprint while lending to our natural quality. I know that the less time the food has to travel, the fresher it will be on your plate!”

Guests of the Westin and locals alike enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this Uptown spot. You’ll also find it as a great destination for after-work happy hours (try one of their craft cocktails made with a special JP Charlotte Woodford Reserve) and even tailgate parties on select Saturdays (live music, BBQ, drink specials, and more.)

Here’s a little peek at our recent dinner at JP Charlotte.

Start your meal with these Heritage Pork Belly Buns with apple and carrot slaw, peanuts, and cilantro. The crunchy toppings add great contrast to the soft bun.

The NC Coastal Daily Catch of the day was black sea bass with acorn squash puree and local veggies. This dish rotates daily based on the freshest fish and the chef’s inspirations.

If you don’t end your meal with the Bourbon and Banana Pudding… we’re sorry. The tall glass is layered with creamy banana pudding and topped with caramelized bananas, whipped cream, and caramel. Delicious.
