CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Known for prime seafood flown in daily, premium, hand-carved steaks and live jazz trios nightly, Eddie V's will bring its unique style of hospitality to Charlotte on Friday, May 4, 2018. The new 269-seat restaurant will join the sophisticated community that calls the Bank of America Plaza home.
"Charlotte's successful restaurant scene has helped shaped the Queen City as a destination to enjoy top-notch dining experiences," said Aimee Hartke, Managing Partner. "As a cultural melting pot rich in jazz history and Southern charm, Eddie V's will enhance the city's charismatic vibe, offering a unique and unforgettable dining experience."
The fine-dining restaurant serves only the freshest seafood from pristine waters around the world plus highly-prized seasonal items, artistically prepared and presented. In addition, premium steaks, hand-cut from the finest, specialty-aged, center-cut beef available, ensure peak flavor. What's more, menu items can be paired with selections from an award-winning, world-class wine list of more than 300 choices. The varied dinner menu includes signature dishes like:
- Parmesan Sole
- Chilean Sea Bass
- Bacon Wrapped Filets "Oscar" Style with Alaskan King Crab
- Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes

The menu also features a wide array of seasonal oysters, complete with tasting notes on such regionally sourced options like Blish Point, Shiny Sea, Blue Point and Standish Shore. Guests can also savor half a dozen oysters complemented by a half bottle of champagne, notably Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial or Krug Grand Cuvée, hand-selected by Eddie V's Advanced Sommelier.
Eddie V's eclectic atmosphere puts a modern spin on Prohibition era speakeasies, where cocktails and jazz epitomized the height of fashion. Meticulously crafted cocktails are imbued with one of three distinctive characteristics of the era: Idealism – a modern mix of sweet, crisp and tart qualities; Fortitude – balanced and remastered classics; and Decadence – indulgent libations. Highlights include a Smoked Old Fashioned served tableside on a smoked plank and the diamond ice cube chilled Hope Diamond. In addition to the full Cocktails With Attitude menu, guests have access to the Happy Hour menu featuring Chef's Teasers, half shell oysters, signature appetizer items, hand-shaken cocktails and wines by the glass.
Eddie V's Charlotte will host guests in both the main dining room and four private dining rooms, each with full audio/visual capabilities perfect for business meetings and celebratory occasions. The restaurant will offer a vibrant and welcoming ambiance highlighted by a glass-enclosed, walk-through wine cellar and contemporary, Art Deco-inspired design that draws in the guest, enabling them to discover more around each corner. The V Lounge features an expansive oval-shaped bar top, cocktail tables and elevated booth seating, along with a stage where top-flight jazz trios perform nightly.
