Restaurant Week Wednesday – Upstream Restaurant, Charlotte

 It’s Restaurant Week!  For one week you can eat in selected restaurants for $30 which includes appetizer, dinner, and dessert. It’s a great concept because you can try upscale restaurants for a very reasonable price.  A friend and I tried Upstream and I am so glad we did.

If you like to eat out but don’t like to spend lots of money on your meal, this is the perfect time to try a restaurant that maybe is normally be out of your price range.  Why not take advantage of this opportunity?

The first picture is of crab cakes (my appetizer) and I took a picture of the miso soup my friend had but it didn’t photograph well so I can’t show it to you. But it was tasty!

Sea Bass. It was heaven in my mouth.

Tenderloin. My friend ordered it well (yuck, I like it rare)  but it was still tender and juicy.

Flourless chocolate torte and ice cream. Very good, extremely rich.

Apple crumble. The apples were tart and firm, it was a delicious combination.

 It’s not too late, Restaurant Week in on until the 26th so if you can, check out Upstream or any of the restaurants on the list, I’m sure you will find something you will be happy with.
