OK Charlotte foodies its that time of the year again!!! Its time to break out of your shell and check out that restaurant you’ve been eyeing for the last few months. The Summer 2014 installment of the semi-annual Queen’s Feast: Charlotte Restaurant Week® will run Friday, July 18, through Sunday, July 27, featuring 113 upscale restaurants in the metro Charlotte area offering $30 prix fixe menus of three courses or more at dinner (not including tax and gratuity).

The July promotion includes restaurants in seven counties, with participants located across Charlotte and beyond into Concord, Belmont, Gastonia, Waxhaw, the Lake Norman area, Statesville, Denver, and Fort Mill, SC.

July’s Queen’s Feast features numerous first-time restaurant participants, including Fahrenheit in Uptown Charlotte; Heirloom at Mountain Island Lake; BAKU in SouthPark (one of our favorites); The Summit Room in Dilworth; and Twisted Oak American Bar & Grill in Statesville.
