Dishing on Fin & Fino Charlotte

Here’s the dish! I met up with my mom in Charlotte for my birthday weekend in October. One of my really good friends from college lives there, and I often make plans to grab a bite with her when I’m driving back and forth to Atlanta to visit family. When I told her I’d be in Charlotte for my birthday, we made plans to connect and do what we do best–eat great food!

After letting her know I’d really like a restaurant with a tasting menu, she recommended Fin & Fino, and after checking out their website I was sold! In addition to great food offerings, they have a social impact component to their concept. They call their tasting experience “The Treatment,” and every $5 from each person who indulges in the treatment is donated to a local charity. How could you not go all out?!

I was actually quite blown away that they are able to offer this treatment for $60 per person. We were a party of 3, and dined on 10 different courses from their menu, including Calamari, Baked Crab Dip, Raw Oysters, Spiced Squash Toast, Tuna-Salmon Poke Bowl, Furikake Fries, Mussels, Chalk Stream Trout, Lobster & Truffles, and a Dessert Trio.

I honestly don’t even know how they can afford to feed people this much food at this price point! We were a party of 3, and it was more than enough food for us to taste and indulge each round. I highly recommend this for a great date night or even double date with friends, because it’s a lot of food.

Until next time, keep dishing!
