CRVA kicks off culinary tourism initiative
This week, the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority kicked off what will become an annual initiative to promote Charlotte’s culinary scene: Savor Charlotte. Savor will run from March 8 to March 22, with restaurants across the city offering special menus, events, and tastings. The focus will include media spends and marketing within a 250-mile radius of the city, at no cost to the restaurants participating. Some places are offering special menu items, such as Geno D’s in The Market at 7th Street’s Jersey-style pizza, others — including Forchetta and Mimosa Grill — are offering fixed-price menus. There are also several special events scattered throughout the programming, including our Meat & Potatoes dinner, which will showcase chefs in a way the city rarely gets to experience.
