Whether planned in advance or a necessity after a kitchen snafu, eating out on Christmas Day can be a challenging task. Checking to see what’s open, keeping everyone happy with food options, and finding an eatery that can accommodate the crew are all a few of the headaches one can encounter. Stoke Charlotte, located in the Marriott City Center, takes all the hassle out of a family Christmas dinner out.
The restaurant is hosting a Christmas Day Feast with seatings at 2:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Make reservations for the four-course, prix-fixe meal that includes all the comfort and classic dishes you’re used to—with Stoke’s signature New South taste.
Indulge in Heritage Cornbread and Mom’s Deviled Eggs, Mushroom and Carolina Gold Rice Bisque, and Wood-Finished Beef Tenderloin or Sorghum and Chili Glazed Country Ham with pineapple and cherry chutney. The feast wouldn’t be complete without family-style sides like roasted sweet potatoes, brioche and mushroom bread pudding, charred and braised collards and green bean casserole. Top off the night with The Donut (need we say more?).
If you’re not in the mood to change things up on Christmas Day, consider scheduling a holiday gathering in the Private Dining Room. While Christmas Day celebrations are usually reserved for family, don’t leave friends and coworkers off the “Nice” list. Gather around the communal table and get in the holiday spirit with Stoke’s signature dishes, perfect for warming up from the chilly weather outside.
And for those last-minute gifts, why not introduce a friend or family member to the community that Stoke strives to create? Gift cards are tried-and-true stocking stuffers and with Stoke, you can’t go wrong.
