On the evening of Thursday, March 9, Community Table Bistro – our restaurant and food services training program at the Goodwill Opportunity Campus – was one of the dining establishments spotlighted at Charlotte magazine’s first-ever “Best New Restaurants” Party at CenterStage@NoDa.
The magazine recently ranked Community Table Bistro #18 on its list of the “25 Best New Restaurants in Charlotte 2017.” Click here to see the full list and read the article about Community Table Bistro!
Our Community Table Bistro team was thrilled to be highlighted among Charlotte’s top-notch culinary scene, and to be in the company of our city’s best new restaurants this year. The event was emceed by Colleen Odegaard and Eugene Robinson, co-hosts of Charlotte Today on NBC Charlotte.
For our tasting dish, we served mini chicken pot pies – a comfort food and favorite among diners in the Bistro – to the more than 350 attendees. We heard from many guests that our dish was their first tasting, and that it remained their favorite throughout the evening!
Proceeds from the event benefited the Community Culinary School of Charlotte. A huge thank you to Charlotte magazine for recognizing the delicious food and recipes cooked every day at Community Table Bistro, as well as the hard work of our dedicated team, led by Andrew King (Director of Food Services) and Patty Greene (Bistro Manager).
