It was like sharks circling the water for a few months in 2018 as Charlotte anxiously awaited the opening of the Crunkleton. For many of us, we had no idea why there was almost a frenzied excitement for a restaurant that had a $10 per year membership. When it finally opened at the end of 2018, we finally understood. The place serves Prohibition-era inspired cocktails and a menu that ranges from its Really Good Burger to an enormous 42 ounce Tomahawk Steak to share with the table. The S’mores mousse is the perfect way to end the experience. The cocktails are obviously top notch and you really can’t go wrong but the Penicillin, Caipirinha, and Hemingway Daiquiri are a solid place to start. And don’t miss brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
