Upscale French restaurant sets opening in uptown

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Uptown Charlotte’s first French brasserie will open next week.

La Belle Helene will open for dinner service at 5 p.m. on July 31.

That roughly 7,000-square-foot upscale restaurant is located at 300 South Tryon.

Expect to be transported to a Paris bistro of sorts, where taking the time to focus on life and enjoy good food, friends and wine is a priority, says Frederique Leonard, general manager.

“A brasserie is a place you go on a regular basis because it is definitely approachable in terms of food and taste. The experience is a very casual one,” she adds.
