Halcyon, Flavours from the Earth
Described as ‘farmhouse chic’, Halcyon is a stylish farm-to-table destination serving a delightful selection of dishes combining the best of Southern and Old World cuisine. Based on local produce from artisanal farms, dairies, cheese-makers and wineries from the states of Carolina and beyond, Halcyon’s seasonally driven menu includes dishes such as venison with cranberry, apple and spiced walnuts, and house-crafted mushroom ravioli with sherry cream and a black olive emulsion. The restaurant’s earthy and soothing interior is characterized by blue walls, birds’ nest chandeliers, and sculpted wooden tables. Situated inside the Mint Museum on the Levine Cultural Campus, Halcyon’s dining room offers a stunning view of the Charlotte cityscape.

The Cowfish, Sushi Burger Bar
What happens when quality burgers are combined with good sushi? To find out, stop by the Cowfish. Far from being an ordinary restaurant, the Cowfish’s menu features an unusual mix of burgers and sushi. Choose your favorite from the extensive menu of fresh sushi, the organic burger menu, or try the signature invention of ‘burgushi’ – daring fusions made up of both sushi and burger components. With no limit to culinary creativity, diners also have the option to customize their sushi rolls with the ‘build your own sushi roll’ menu. It doesn’t end there, however: the Cowfish bar provides a superb offering of spike hand-spun milkshakes, premium sakes, craft beer and exotic martinis. A relaxed fun spot, not to mention housing a 600-gallon aquarium with live cowfish, the Cowfish promises a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
