They’ve even got a secret patio garden!
Take a look around and you’ll realize that Charlotte is quite the artsy city from its unique coffee shops to its stunning mural art. That’s why we’re so excited to see this awesome art gallery meets restaurant concept, The Artisan’s Palate, here in Charlotte, and what’s more, it’s a feminine-forward business.
This NoDa space was envisioned as a restaurant, art gallery, and gathering space by its owner and chef, Christa Csoka. The restaurant is meant to take on all 5 of the senses in a variety of art forms displayed at the restaurant: food, beverage, music, and art. From craft coffee to craft cocktails and innovative, rustic plates, there’s a little something for every palate.
Csoka’s mission was to create a space where art galleries and restaurants could co-exist and artisans–in whatever medium–could be highlighted. Months are dedicated to specific artists, and their work is proudly displayed in the designated gallery space. For July, that artist is Mark Doepker, a portrait artist who creates brightly colored and unique drawings of people.
Previous featured artists have been Wade Carpenter, the photographer and travel writer, Sam Guzzie, a multimedia artist and muralist, Jonay Di Ragno, a visual artist and muralist, and Donald Ray, a painter.
They’ve got a few different menus depending on the time and day, from lunch to dinner to brunch. Try one of their specialty charcuterie boards, like their sausage board with Butifarra, Morcilla, Chorizo, house-pickled onion, marinated artichoke, spicy mustard, and a warm baguette or go for something like their mussels in white wine or their pulled chicken sliders.
They’re open from Tuesday through Friday from 10:30am to 10:30pm, Saturday from 9am to 11pm and Sunday from 9am to 4pm.
