Meat & Potatoes: Redefining Charlotte’s Culinary Stereotype

Join us at this signature event!

Charlotte is a meat and potatoes town, huh? We’ll show you what kind of meat and potatoes town we are. Six innovative chefs will cook a five-course meal of meat and potato dishes, using no prime cuts of meat. Nothing is off-limits, except for the ordinary.

Join us Monday, March 20th from 6-9 p.m. at Mimosa Grill (327 S. Tryon St.)

Ticket price includes gratuity. There are two ticket types. Choose from the Meat & Potatoes Dinner only ticket, or choose the Meat & Potatoes Dinner with Wine Pairing ticket. Beverages will be available to purchase for those who do not wish to do a paired dinner. No substitutions.
