Restaurant Week!

It's restaurant week! Twice a year Charlotte has an extended week of great food at one flat price! About 100 restaurants put together menu's just for the week so that it's $30 per person. This gives Dave and I a chance to try a new expensive restaurant without having to break the bank!  The dates are Friday, January 18 - Sunday, January 27, 2013.

Last night we went to 5Church. It is this really cool new spot Uptown. The decor is great - leather sofas, ghost chairs, lots of black and white modern decor. And on the ceiling someone has taken the time to write out The Art of War. ha! It's very neat.


127 N. Tryon Street, Suite 210

(corner 5th & Church)

Charlotte, NC 28202


I literally stuffed my face. I was full half way through the entree but nope! Had to finish every last bite!
Here is what I had:

Bib Lettuce Salad - herb buttermilk dressing, buttery croutons (not GF so did not eat), country ham

The salad was definitely the best appetizer choice!

Wasabi Crusted Salmon - sautéed bok choy, marinated seaweed salad, miso emulsion

This was seriously amazing and I want to know how to recreate it at home.

Frozen Citrus and White Chocolate Parfait - candied pistachios, oranges, lemon shards

This was the only GF dessert but also seemed lighter than the other two which were chocolate cake or chocolate brownie! Haha. Our table had a little of each and all desserts were a hit! I really liked the parfait which wasn't really a parfait but more of a thing of art! The lemon shards were candy! Mmmm. There was also honey all over the plate - hello, yummers!

Oh and to top off the night, Michael Jordan was there too.
