The UPPY Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2023 UPPY Awards!

Save the date for the third annual UPPY Awards! On Monday, November 13th, Unpretentious Palate will announce the 2023 People of the Year Awards, or The UPPYs live at Middle C Jazz! The annual event celebrates of the best in Charlotte’s restaurant industry, from chefs and bartenders to sommeliers and general managers.

To choose the finalists, we lean on some of the city’s most food-educated and seasoned diners, UP members, to help select our finalists via nominations. This prevents someone from being named a winner solely based on the quality of their PR team or social media following.

Tickets will be on sale soon!
