800-Degree Woodfired Kitchen is set to open May 31 in the former Restoration Hardware space at Phillips Place.
(You may recall, RH Charlotte moved into its own massive three-story building with a rooftop restaurant last year.)
Background: The international restaurant chain started in Westwood, California, and now has 15 locations across the world — from New York City to Dubai. Its Phillips Place location will be the first 800-Degree in the Carolinas and will offer a unique experience to the other locations, owner Steven Jensen says, with more emphasis on fine dining.
What to expect: Everything on the menu is cooked in a rotating, 800-degree oven that is specifically manufactured for each 800-Degree location.
Menu: While pizzas are their specialty, other popular menu items include power bowls (customizable grain bowls), burgers and baked wings.
- Bar ONE, a separate cocktail bar under the same roof will have its own identity, but offer the full menu from 800-Degree. The cocktail list will center around whiskey and scotch.
- Unlike other 800-Degree locations, everything in the 2,500-square-foot restaurant will be hand-picked like the walnut flooring and leather coverings, Jensen says.
- The 2,500 square-foot space will host indoor and outdoor seating.
Location: The exact location is 6815 Phillips Place Court, directly across from PF Chang’s.
