Charlotte Restaurant Week returns

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Twice a year some of the Charlotte area's hottest and most expensive restaurants offer a deal few people can refuse.

During the "Queens Feast" restaurants will off a three or sometimes four course meal for $30 per person.

This summer's event runs from July 20-29 and features a record 107 participating restaurants from Fort Mill to Lake Norman and Belmont to Waxhaw.

Event founder Bruce Hensley and Monte Smith, owner of Cafe Monte, visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about the event.
