Last Saturday we went to 131 Main for Charlotte Restaurant Week. This is a week in which many restaurants will serve either a 3 or 4 course meal and a glass of wine for $30.00 a person. It is a fantastic time and you get to go out and try some of the restaurants that you usually would not get to go to for a reasonable price. 131 Main was fantastic in every way. First our server was great. He was honest and helpful and really knew the menu. He did not try to push you into anything, however, he let you know what he really thought about each meal.

Jules and I actually ate the same thing (See Pics below) but we had friends with us so we could try their meals to get a good handle on multiple dishes. We got the special which was a grilled grouper covered in a crab and shrimp sauce. I will say it was probably the most moist piece of fish I have ever had. The wild rice was kind of different but good. It was served cold with a sweet fruity taste. Rick got the Hand Cut Ribeye marinated in a sweet soy sauce and simply grilled. It was wonderful. I really couldn’t get over how good that was-cooked exactly how he wanted it and very moist. Gayleen had the Maryland Style Crab Cakes with pommerey mustard sauce and hand cut fries. There are many places in the South that claim to have good crab cakes, however, these were great. I can’t wait to go back and film this place so you guys can really see what this place is like. The only thing I will say is that the restaurant week menu left a bit to be desired, so that is why we ordered off the menu but all in all it was a fantastic experience. {Editor's Note: I felt the best meal on the table was the crab cakes. They were the best crab cakes I've ever had. Lots of crab in every bite and the mustard sauce was wonderful!}

We had a bottle of Stags Leap Merlot which was as good as it always is.
Thanks for stopping by Any Ol’ Thing and until next time have a Fan-damn-tastic time.
