The Fig Tree Restaurant, Charlotte, NC

Charlotte’s the Fig Tree has been lauded as one of the city’s most romantic eateries and was twice named restaurant of the year by Charlotte Magazine. There, Greg Zanitsch plays culinary cupid, charming diners with his seasonally focused blend of French and Italian cuisines, complemented by award-winning wines. For his Beard House debut, Zanitsch and wife/partner Sara have enlisted Willamette Valley star Argyle Winery to celebrate an evening inspired by wine and friendship.
