GREAT XCAPES: Delta’s, A 5-Star Soul Food Experience (Charlotte, NC)
Where does the posh African American elite of Charlotte, North Carolina dine? Delta’s Restaurant in Charlotte features upscale food with southern home style touch. Our Founder Jai Stone recently dined there at the invitation of Herb & Felecia Gray (BLF 14 Most Inspiring Black Couples), and she could not stop raving over the food and was even more impressed with the personal yet elegant atmosphere!
Positioned in the heart of uptown Charlotte, Delta’s gives straight southern cuisine in a casual elegant atmosphere with live entertainment, a full wine list, and cocktail menu that is a combination of traditional and modern drinks.
Delta’s offers something for everyone. Those looking for a three course meal can start off with collard green dip appetizer, move on to over roasted chicken with a side order of grits as the main entrée, and finish up with warm peach cobbler for dessert.
The main menu offers a plateau of food. Appetizers consist of fried gator, crab cakes, catfish fingers, dumplings, and buffalo wings. The main courses include smothered pork chops, chicken and rib combo, fried whiting over shrimp & chicken jambalaya grits, and meatloaf over gravy. A captivating dessert menu of sweet potato cheesecake, red velvet cake, and bourdon pecan pie are offered to conclude an extravagant meal. Patrons wanting to keep it light can order salads ranging from house, traditional or spinach BLT.
No great restaurant is secure without a bar and foray of drinks. Cosmopolitan, raspberry, strawberry and 17 other martinis are on hand. Kryptonite, red kool aid, and mango cocktails will catch the eye of any guest.
Friday and Saturday present live R&B and jazz to the working class or weekend goers who want to relax. Next time you’re in Charlotte, North Carolina stop by Delta’s restaurant for gourmet southern food, rich tasting dessert, and world class drinks.
Delta’s Charlotte is the sister companion to the wildly popular central New Jersey location that shares the same name. Managing Partners Joshua Suggs and Coretta King were featured on the Black Enterprise Report last year just as the North Carolina location debuted.
