a fahrenheit valentine

Fahrenheit is known for their playful menu creations. Just think, if you could mix your favorite childhood cereals into pancakes or a breakfast casserole and still be considered a functioning adult then you need to brunch here ASAP.

Not only are the dishes whimsical and unique, Chef Rocco Whalen takes seasonal ingredients and NC businesses seriously. “Eat Local, Drink Local”… all of that is practiced here on the 21st floor. Since I mentioned height, Fahrenheit is also a destination for fantastic Charlotte skyline photos, follow #rooftopon21 on Instagram.

Date Night

I had a wonderful opportunity to partner up with the Fahrenheit team to taste and get you pumped for their Valentine’s Day Menu. If you are like me and try to avoid restaurants on holidays they are offering this menu Valentine’s Day through Sunday the 18th. Their full menu is still available if you prefer.

The special menu for Valentine’s Day is an easy-to-understand set up with three sections:  starters, entrees and desserts. I find it refreshing when a menu is clear and doesn’t need an explanation on how I should order, or how to share my food. I like to share my food with just a few people, luckily I was with one of them during this meal :)

My goal with the following food photos is to make your mouth water. So much that you call the restaurant right now and make a reservation to celebrate a delicious meal with someone special. Every dish was prepared with great care and landed in front of me in a beautiful presentation. You will leave fat and happy, like we did. Pro Tip:  Make you reservation after 6pm to get free street parking.

Starters
Tuna Tartare | Jumbo Lump Crab Sliders | Lobster Tempura Satay
Entrees
Baked Lobster Tail Udon | Snake River Farms Wagyu N.Y. Strip | Pan Seared Black Grouper
Desserts
Dark Chocolate Coconut Truffles | Rum Soaked Cherry Bread Pudding | Blood Orange Cheesecake

Since Eric and I are both into photography we had a super fun time taking these photos. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at a cozy table for two next to a well needed lit side wall, no flash needed. Collectively we took about 30 photos so check out our Insta pages for more drool-worthy news feeds.

If you a food blogger reading this, ask to sit next to a lighted column. You will still get a pretty view of the balcony fire pits and city skyline.

Grouper | Brown Butter Tuscan Kale, Winter Squash Puree, Confit New Potatoes Wagyu | Potato Pave, Cedar Roasted Asparagus, Lobster Beurre Monte

Originally I was set on the Wagyu before I realized that I prefer it raw, in Nigiri form. So I kind of just kept the Grouper from Eric once we switched plates for equal photo opportunities. He only minded a little so of course I shared. At least until dessert, we each had our own cheesecake to devour. The leftovers are in the fridge just waiting for me to get home. Cheesecake for breakfast anyone? Always.

Thank you so much to the Fahrenheit management team and staff for showing Eric and I a really great evening. We are eager to come back and use our gifts <3
