Bar Marcel is a European-inspired restaurant located in Charlotte's SouthPark neighborhood. They are open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Currently, they are only open for dinner on Sunday. Their lunch and dinner menus overlap some of the pastas and plates offered. Bar Marcel features a full bar serving beer, liquor, wine by the glass, and a bottled wine list.
Ashley and I went for dinner with family and friends to Bar Marcel during Queen's Feast. We ordered items featured on the special menu that were also found on the regular menu. On the stuzzichini dinner menu, we tried the Beet & Burrata Salad, Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, and Charcuterie Board. All three choices were delightful. Our group collectively chose the Beet & Burrata Salad and Crispy Brussels Sprouts as the top choices.
For the main course, we ordered a few different dishes. I ordered the Tagliatelle featuring shrimp, capers, kale, brodo, cured lemon and chive. It was very good pasta dish that I would order again. My wife ordered the Agnolotti with truffled potato, braised rabbit, brussels leaves, carrot, gouda, almond, and garlic butter. She enjoyed her dish, but thought the Tagliatelle was a better pasta choice. Other individuals in our group ordered the Seared Salmon and Grilled Pork Tenderloin. They enjoyed their entrees and would order them again in the future.
As for alcoholic beverages, we ordered cocktails and a bottle of Spanish wine. The cocktails were well-crafted and enjoyable. While I also enjoyed our choice of wine, I found their bottle prices somewhat expensive. We had a hard time deciding on a bottle that was reasonably priced and not featured as a wine by the glass. Overall, everyone had a wonderful experience and enjoyed their meals. We all agreed that Bar Marcel was worth the trip. I would recommend Bar Marcel for an intimate dinner with a partner, spouse, couple, or to celebrate a special occasion.
