Anniversary Weekend: A Tour of Restaurants

We had such a fun anniversary weekend in Charlotte last weekend.  Did you read about our room at The Blake Hotel and our trip to Pinky’s Westside Grill?

We had no plans Saturday morning… we just thought we’d see what we felt like and where we’d end up. 

We started off at Zada Jane’s for breakfast.  I had never been there before and the reviews on Yelp sounded great. 


We weren’t disappointed.  The place was small and packed (a sign of a great spot), but it was full of charm!  Check out the colorful atmosphere!  There was lots of local artwork on the walls.


I started with a bloody mary, which was fantastic!  Nice and spicy!


And an omelet with goat cheese, spinach, mushrooms, and other veggies.  Delish!


We made a few stops at a few stores and even got our nails done!  Yes, the husband is totally ok with getting a mani/pedi!  (No polish for him… gotta keep it masculine.)

We settled on the Icehouse for lunch—mainly because they were showing football. 


We split pimento cheese and a Dagwood sandwich.



And finally… dinner.

We decided to make a reservation at 131 Main.  I’d never been there before but had heard great things about it and have passed it several times and wanted to check it out!



They were featuring a great deal: the Main Event.  For $59, we were able to get:

an appetizer (deviled eggs)…



…two salads (not pictured…

… two entrees (trout and couscous salad for me)…



… dessert (banana cream pie)…


… and a bottle of wine!

How about that for a great deal???  What a great way to celebrate our first 10 years together—great food, conversation, and time together!


And after all that eating, we were exhausted—so we headed back to the Blake Hotel! 

We totally enjoyed our restaurant tour of Charlotte!  But we had one more stop to make on the way home.  :)  Stay tuned for our final breakfast.
