365 Things to do in Charlotte – Charlotte Restaurant Week® JAN 17 – 26, 2020
Twice a year, I share information on Charlotte’s popular Queens Feast (otherwise known as Restaurant Week®). This week-long event allows you a fantastic opportunity to try new area restaurants…or re-visit some of your favorites. Pay $30 or $35 (not including tax or gratuity) for a 3-course prix fixe meal. This month, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from over 140 restaurants in the Charlotte Metro area.
For the first Queen’s Feast in 2020, I’m going to share the 10 restaurants that are NEW to the Queen’s Feast event. This is their first time to participate so, be sure to book early as the new restaurants typically sell out quickly.
Remember, participating restaurants are spread over a 10-county area so, if you prefer to view the list by area and don’t care about the new participants, we have that link for you! OR, you can search restaurants alphabetically here.
Tips & tricks of Restaurant Week® include:
- As I mentioned, prix fixe price is $30 or $35 per person.
- Queen’s Feast specials are available for DINNER ONLY.
- Check the operating hours of the individual restaurants when booking as participating restaurants are open at different times.
- Menus are subject to change without notice, based on product availability.
- If you are unable to keep your reservation for any reason, PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE AND CANCEL as soon as possible to give other diners and the restaurant the opportunity to enjoy this favorite Charlotte event!
- Dietary restrictions? You will want to check with the individual restaurant(s) which you plan to dine to ascertain if/how they adjust menu items. It is suggested that you do so prior to your arrival.
- Coupons may not be accepted during Charlotte Restaurant Week®. If having your coupon accepted is important to you, check with the restaurant prior to dining.
- Reservations are highly recommended.

*One of Charlotte’s finest, and one of our our favorite ‘old’ restaurants, Vivace permanently closed their doors at the end of 2019. Vivace offered the best patio dining in Charlotte with incredible views of Charlotte’s skyline. The restaurant, located in the ever-popular Midtown, positioned about a mile from Center City, just far enough to feature breathtaking views of our Uptown.
We were sad to see Vivace closed but, wanted to share that we have also dined at their ‘sister’ restaurant in the Ballantyne/Stonecroft area and were just as impressed. Located in the Stonecroft Shopping Center (beside the theatre), Civetta offers a fine Italian menu and an extensive wine list as well. Even though Civetta was featured in last year’s July Queen’s Feast, the restaurant is not quite a year old and is ‘new’ to most. We highly recommend Civetta.
We are 40+ year locals and can help guide you in, not only the best restaurants in town but, in all things real estate. Thinking of moving? Let’s talk! Call or text (704) 491-3310 today!
