Imagine sipping a cocktail infused with herbs snipped from a rooftop garden, eating a meal prepared by a celebrity chef, and looking at a breathtaking view of the city skyline.
And, no, you are not in New York. You are in Uptown Charlotte.
Imagine no more. Celebrity Chef Rocco Whalen has just opened a branch of his famous Cleveland restaurant Fahrenheit on top of the Skye Condos in Uptown.
Restaurant expert Sarah Crosland recently visited the latest addition to Charlotte's dining scene to check it out.
"When you talk about rooftop spaces you usually talk about other places in the world like New York, London, Miami," said Whalen. "Now Charlotte has a rooftop experience."
The views of the Charlotte skyline frame the windows around the restaurant and the bar. And there is an outside patio where you can soak in the view in the fresh air.
The menu is upscale and reflects many of the classic dishes Whalen makes in his other restaurants. Chef Whalen created several dishes for Crosland while she visited, including his take on a lobster roll as well as his short rib ramen.
Fahrenheit is located at 222 S. Caldwell St.
