Queen’s Feast – Charlotte Restaurant Week in Layman’s terms – is back once more with an impressive lineup of over 130 restaurants.

Friday, January 19 through Sunday, January 28, restaurants all over Charlotte and in surrounding counties will offer a prix fixe, 3-course menu to anyone that makes a Queen’s Feast reservation.

The fine print: Reservations must be for dinner.

Menus will be set at $30 or $35, which means that at restaurants like Heirloom, Georges Brasserie and Mama Ricotta’s, diners will get a chance to try staples that are usually more expensive for a fraction of the cost.

For example, the menu at Georges Brasserie includes the Chicken Paillard, normally $21. During restaurant week, you’ll pay $35 and get an appetizer and dessert as well.

Some, though not all, even offer a drink at no extra charge.

The full list of participating restaurants and their menus can be found here.

These are the ones you can’t miss.
