The immensely popular dining event Charlotte Restaurant Week will expand to ten days for its third outing. “Queen’s Feast: Summer 2009” will run Friday, July 10, through Sunday, July 19, encompassing two full weekends. The semi-annual event boasts a new high of 71 participating restaurants for this summer’s run.
Charlotte Restaurant Week is a metro-area promotion during a typically slow time in which numerous upscale restaurants offer a prix fixe, three-course dinner for $30 per person (not including tax and gratuity), a savings over what such a meal would typically cost. Participating restaurants this summer can be found in the Lake Norman/North Mecklenburg area; Fort Mill, SC; and Belmont, NC, in addition to many areas of Charlotte.
In addition to many of the popular choices from previous events, such as Sonoma Modern American, M5, LaVecchia’s, Copper, Blue, Cajun Queen, Ruth’s Chris, Carpe Diem, and Noble’s, this summer’s Queen’s Feast will see new participants such as Luce; Sole Spanish Grille; Basil Thai; Firenze; Morton’s; Passion8 Bistro in Fort Mill; T1 Tapas and Maddi’s Southern Bistro at Birkdale; Old Stone Steakhouse in Belmont; and many others.
This summer, Charlotte Restaurant Week is also partnering with three hotels that will offer discounted rates targeting diners at nearby participating CRW restaurants. Special rates, packages, and reservation information for the Westin and the Doubletree Gateway Village in Center City and the Doubletree Suites at SouthPark can be found at an “Accommodations” link on the event website.
