Charlotte Restaurant Week Returns with 133 Places to Eat

See which notables have piqued our palates.

Guess what's back, back again. Queen's Feast is back; tell a friend.

Eminem reference aside (Did you catch that, '90s babies?), trying new restaurants is always more fun with company. With the biggest lineup ever, this year's Charlotte Restaurant Week will stretch across nine counties and 133 restaurants in the Charlotte metro area. Beginning Friday, January 18, and continuing through Sunday, January 27, Queen's Feast: Charlotte Restaurant Week will treat the city's foodies to three-course, prix-fixe dinners at the participating restaurants. These dinners will cost either $30 or $35 per person, allowing curious eaters to expand their palates for a fraction of the usual cost.

Charlotte Restaurant Week has been running since 2008 semi-annually and now includes Union, Cabarrus, Rowan, Iredell, Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba, and York counties in addition to Mecklenburg. More than a dozen new restaurants are participating in January 2019's event, with YUME and Zeppelin of South End as two notables, plus Dilworth Tasting Room and the new Bistro La Bon location in Cotswold (the Plaza Midwood location ranked as one of the best places to eat in the neighborhood). YUME and Zeppelin made Charlotte magazine's list of Best New Restaurants to try in 2019, and Queen's Feast is a great opportunity to do a "trial run." Another fresh addition to the list is locals' favorite McAdenville Table & Market in what's known as Christmas Town USA during the month of December.

The Queen's Feast organizers strongly recommend booking reservations to ensure seating during prime dining times. You can view the full list of participating restaurants, see their special menus for the event, and make reservations online at
