January 18-27 is Charlotte’s “Queen’s Feast” Festival and for those of you who have no idea what this is, listen up because this is your chance to experience savory cuisine at a fraction of the usual cost.
This annual event calls upon over 100 local restaurants throughout the metro Charlotte area to offer up a three-course dinner meal to its patrons for a well-discounted price of just $30 or $35 (price is set at restaurant management’s discretion, and reservations HIGHLY recommended). This is a great way to try out a new spot you’ve had your eye on for a while, but may have denied yourself the experience because maybe it was too expensive. Dinner for two people, even at a median-priced chophouse or seafood restaurant, can run you well over $200 when you include meals, side dishes, drinks, desserts, tax and gratuity. With the deals provided by participating restaurants during Queen’s Feast, you can save yourself quite a bit of money by paying a small sum for three courses…which frees up some more spending room for second drink rounds, right!?
This year, there are a total of 133 participating restaurants, which you can see the full list of here: charlotterestaurantweek.com, but here are a few highlights:
