DAY 1: 6-Course Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series
This popular farm-to-fork restaurant in the Coulwood/Mountain Island Lake community opened in 2014 and came under new management at the end of last year. The new owners have kept things up handily, earning Heirloom a place on Charlotte Magazine’s list of “The 50 Best Restaurants in Charlotte: 2020.” The menu continues to focus on vegetables, fruits, meats, seafood, and beverages produced in North Carolina, all provided by purveyors with whom Heirloom has struck a productive collaborative relationship. Here, you’ll find dishes like duck confit served with cauliflower-mint-sunflower seed puree, shrimp and grits, bacon-wrapped rabbit meatloaf, and Aunt Nancy’s onion pie. Exec Chef Patrick Murphy and Chef de Cuisine Myles Scaglione serves these up and much more in a rustic-chic space clad in plank wood with cozy couches and amber lighting. We will be taking over the restaurant for this event, and Chefs Murphy and Scaglione will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss his dedication to local food.
