Hello Charlotte 'Hounds,
A far-flung group will be gathering in Charlotte for a wedding party over Memorial Day weekend and about 20 of us have a night to fend for ourselves with our kids. Most of us would be pretty unhappy at a chain or a hotel buffet, but given the size of our group, we don't expect to be able to hit any farm-to-table market-driven holes-in-the-wall (ok, think I used up my hyphen allotment there.)
We are staying at the Marriott City Center hotel on W. Trade Street, and not all of us have cars, so something in walking distance would be the best option. Would like to find something fun and casual, with good quality food and cocktails. Food can be simple, but we do have a selection of red meat adverse people, so a straight up burger joint won't work well. Would like to keep entrée price point under $25.
We are looking for a place that will take reservations for Saturday, 5/24.
Thanks so much!
