Fin & Fino

5-Course Ocean's Bounty Tasting Event

Having opened in 2017, this seafood destination in Uptown held on through the pandemic and now surely qualifies as a Charlotte institution. Featured on Wine Enthusiast’s “50 Best Restaurants in America” 2022 list, Thrillist’s “Best Charlotte Restaurants” List of that same year, and, this year, Eater’s “18 Essential Charlotte Restaurants” list, Fin & Fino offers diners sustainably caught or raised fish and shellfish delivered daily and prepared with seasonal ingredients sourced from nearby farms. Executive Chef Jonathan Cox, a Charlotte native, earned his stripes at a Two-Michelin-Starred restaurant in Italy and then served as Executive Chef at the popular Dogwood. At Fin & Fino, he is turning out exceptional dishes, like scallops and latke (that’s a potato pancake, just so you know), lobster and truffle pasta, grilled tuna with sorrel pesto, and more. Keep in mind, however, that the menu (like the ocean) changes with the tides, so there is always something new to discover. Charlotte Magazine’s restaurant reviewer said that on the way out “we find ourselves making a list of all the people we want to bring with us on our next visit to Fin & Fino.” Count us in!
