Eat Like Royalty in 2015

Charlotte Restaurant Week is back and coming soon
Charlotte Restaurant Week

The Winter 2015 installment of the semi-annual Queen's Feast: Charlotte Restaurant Week will run Friday, January 16, through Sunday, January 25, featuring a record 124 restaurants in the Charlotte area offering $30 prix fixe menus of three courses or more at dinner (not including tax and gratuity). Diners can visit CharlotteRestaurantWeek.com to peruse participating restaurants' prix fixe menus and make reservations. They can also stay in the loop of Queen's Feast info via Facebook.com/CharlotteRestaurantWeek and follow the promotion on Twitter @QueensFeast.

The January promotion includes restaurants in eight counties, with participants located across Charlotte and beyond into Concord, Belmont, Gastonia, Waxhaw, the Lake Norman area, Statesville, Denver, Hickory, and Fort Mill, SC. A full list is available on the website.

There are also several first-time restaurant participants, including Lumiere French Kitchen in Myers Park; Dogwood Southern Table & Bar in SouthPark; Evoke at the Le Meridien in Uptown; Eight Sushi Asian Kitchen in the North Carolina Music Factory; The Flipside Cafe in Fort Mill, SC; and Youssef 242 in Hickory.

"It's wonderful to see Queen's Feast continue to grow in both participating restaurants and diners," said Bruce Hensley of Hensley Fontana Public Relations and Marketing, which owns and handles the event. "It's a functional showcase of the Charlotte region's culinary offerings. Restaurants get to show off their food and ambience, with a price and breadth of choices that lure customers to step outside the usual and try something new in terms of both cuisine and geography."

In addition to all the culinary wonders, some Queen's Feast restaurants will again extend an exclusive offer to AAA members via the AAA Discounts & Rewards program. Diners presenting a current AAA membership card while dining in those restaurants during Queen's Feast will have the opportunity to purchase a $50 gift certificate for a return visit to the restaurant for only $25.

Reservations during Queen’s Feast are strongly recommended as many restaurants will book up quickly. Reservation links and contact information for all participating restaurants can be found at CharlotteRestaurantWeek.com.
