Charlotte dinner on a monday night

Hi all,

Will be traveling to charlotte and spending one night (a monday) at the Omni hotel on E. Trade street. I am looking for a place where i can have a high-quality meal in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. Halcyon seemed perfect, especially since its close to the hotel, but its closed on mondays.

Any similarish recs near my hotel? I dont want to have to trek too far.

thanks so much

  1. 5Church is probably your best bet. Other options would include Dandelion Market and Harvest Moon Grille

      I agree about 5Church. To add to carolinadawg's list, I'll suggest Rooster's, Aria and Bernadin's (not of they're open on Monday). Also, Vida is good for Mexican and Enso for sushi.

        I haven't been to 5Church yet, but recently a few people have given me mixed reviews. I'm not going to go into particulars, since it wasn't my experience, but have you or any other Charlotte Hounds been yet? If so, how was it?

          Sorry, in my previous post I meant to say "I don't know if they're open on Monday" rather than "not of they're open on Monday.". (Damn you, autocorrect!)

          I have been to 5Church once and had a good experience. I went for dinner after they had been open for about a month. All the food we ordered was very good. I got the duck and my fiancé got the salmon. Our server was very good and we really liked the atmosphere. They did a good job opening the place up. The server told us they were still trying to work out some kinks, but we didn't really notice any major ones at the time. They may have been out of a couple dishes, but it was after 9:00 on a Thursday when we walked in.

            I just returned from a trip to Charlotte and tried 5Church, as it was a Sunday night, and after searching the board it looked like one of the best options for Sunday. I will say that the food and service were excellent, but the "vibe" with the disco/electric punk music that played constantly made it a little difficult to truly enjoy the meal.

              you have to eat early at 5Church to beat the crowd if you don't like the noise.

              Though for a Sunday I highly recommend their brunch!
