Sea Level NC
Even though Charlotte isn’t a coastal city, it’s only 175 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Why are we telling you this? Because restaurants here have prime access to fresh, local, and sustainable seafood. Sea Level’s raw bar is the perfect place to experience it all. Go for oyster Happy Hour from 2-6pm Monday through Friday when oysters are only $1.50, or for dinner with friends when you can reasonably order the gigantic Truist Tower that’s piled high with oysters, mussels, clams, shrimp, ceviche, poke, lobster, and caviar. The large restaurant gets busy and chatty, but that won’t keep other people from staring in envy as a waiter passes by with your seafood skyscraper.
