Charlie & Debbie

Weekdays 3:00PM - 7:00PM

I devour food even when I’m not eating, if that makes sense.  I research and read about it, seek out recipes and trends constantly.  So, I guess that makes me a bit of a “foodie.”  But, I love all kinds of dishes, from the simplest home-cooked to fancier high-end.  It’s all fair game.  I look forward to Restaurant Week in Charlotte every year.  It’s a great way to try new spots or revisit your faves.  We recently found Juniper Grill in Ballantyne, and we love it.  We visited last night, not necessarily with the intention of participating in restaurant week.  However, when I saw the offerings on the restaurant week menu, I was all in! I had the most wonderful starter salad with bacon, jicama, cornbread croutons and champagne vinaigrette.  My entree was a delicious pork chop with a pepper chutney.  And, the dessert was sweet cornbread rounds used as a base for berries and vanilla bean ice cream.  It was incredible.

Juniper Grill is one of over 80 restaurants in the area participating in the feasting event.  Restaurants offer a fixed price menu between $30-$45 per person.  Diners typically choose a starter, entree and dessert from a list of choices.  So, it’s a really good deal.  And, some offer special cocktails for an added price.  Reservations are recommended, and coupons may not be accepted during the event.  Juniper Grill is on John J. Delaney Drive in Ballantyne.  The dishes are everything from American to Southern Californian inspired.  So, you find steaks, seafood, pork, fresh vegetable dishes and even enchiladas and smokehouse ribs!  Juniper Grill is at the top of my suggestions to try.  But check out the full offering of spots during Restaurant Week in Charlotte through January 29.
