Need help! Large party from Raleigh needs recommendation for top notch restaurants within walking distance of Marriott on W. Trade St. Looking for nice decor, good wine, and food for fit for foodies. No Chains please. Recommendation for Jazz after dinner would be wonderful!! 50+ crowd. Thanks everyone!

Chima for steaks?

Blue B?

http://www.bluecharlotte.com/

Occasionally they have smooth jazz trio playing there, but better call them first.

Best jazz places are not really within walking distance from your hotel (Double-Door - Thursdays. Bechtler's Jazzy evenings - see calendar (actually in the museum) - that is within walking distance.

When are you coming? June 1 - Bechtler:

bechtler.org/Learn/…jazz-at-the-bechtler-20

Cajun Queen - has jazz & good food,(New Orleans) but not sure if fit for "foodies..." http://www.cajunqueen.net/reviews.html

Also, it's on 1800 East 7th Street (taxi)

Large party? Better call first.

Thank you---we'll be visiting 6/8. What do you think of Aria? Have you eaten at Savannah Red? Saw Blue and looks great--a consideration.

Aria: kind of modern Tuscany Italian - wines are a bit overpriced IMO. Good ambiance. Never been to Savannah Red good reviews. Also, there is a new restaurant 5 Church - we plan to go there, but it will be after your visit...

It's a shame you will not be in Charlotte for the JazzFest (june 22-23)

We like Jazz, so will attend again... a lot of fun & great music!

Sophie, thanks for great info. I am checking into 5 Church--had planned to go to Savannah Red but have changed my mind---weak ambiance as they plan to put us in a back space. None of us (14) have been to Charlotte (how can that be?) and are looking forward to an exciting weekend and outstanding food!

Sophie, we loved 5 church, I don't see a listing on TA for the restaurant review, but wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed--great food, good service, beautiful interior and reasonable. We had a party of 12 and everyone was happy---thank you for a good reccomendation.

Sorry I did not reply earlier; too much travelling lately; just got back from Europe. Anyway, I am glad you liked 5 Church, and as to posting a review, even if TA does not have it, you can still try to post ... It will ask you for details (address, website, etc.) We are yet to go there - hopefully pretty soon, so I will post a review.
