It’s that time of year again: Your champagne tastes, though they’re usually on a beer budget, are actually in line with said budget, and you’re able to eat like a king.

Or, in this case, queen, because Queen’s Feast is back, and more than 60 restaurants in the Charlotte area have prepared 3-course, prix-fixe menus to showcase menu highlights and creativity.

Everyone from Georges Brasserie to O-Ku Sushi to Vivace is participating – see the full list here– and if it snuck up on you, you’re not alone. Don’t fret: We’ve done the research for you, and these are menus you’re not going to want to miss.

Note: Menus are available only for dinner, and coupons may or may not be accepted depending on the restaurant.
