Queen's Feast | Fahrenheit Charlotte

Queen's Feast, or Charlotte Restaurant Week as some refer to it, comes around twice a year and we always try to check out a new restaurant or two. However, it's been a while since we've made our Queen's Feast rounds due to our busy schedules and travel so last night was a first in a while.

We landed on Fahrenheit as our first stop for the summer Queen's Feast "tour". We have been there on numerous occasions and I was excited to try something new (for me) on the menu and opted for the prix fixe menu.

First Course: Sausage Gravy & Biscuits

lobster, Neese’s sausage (NC), sweet potato biscuit

The biscuit was delicious and the lobster was a pleasant surprise but I kind of wish there was more sausage.

Second Course: Seared Scallops

cauliflower puree, roasted cauliflower, pomegranate, arugula

I have a mild addiction to everything cauliflower so that was probably the only reason why I ordered this dish. Ok, ok, I love scallops too. And arugula. And pomegranate.

Hubs ordered the "Mr. Fungi" pizza and it was giant. Bigger than last time.

roasted wild mushrooms, fresh goat cheese, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, mozzarella, rosemary

Third Course: Bread & Butter Cake

Georgia peach compote & vanilla ice cream

Even though the food was delicious and lived up to all expectations, the service from our server did not and left a bad taste in my mouth.

All that aside, I had a great time with my Epic Eater girls and the two men who are brave enough to hang out with us.

What are you favorite restaurants for Queen's Feast?
