The Monticello isn’t an average hotel restaurant. The restaurant services the Dunhill Hotel, but is a favorite of Charlotteans in-the-know who are craving eggs Benedict, cinnamon-sourdough French toast, and other breakfast specialties. The menu emphasizes fresh, local ingredients, and includes Southern favorites like grits and biscuits. The dining room features crisp white tablecloths, dark wood accents, and original artwork. Servers are quick to refill water glasses and answer questions, but they understand the desire to linger over breakfast and won’t bat an eyelash if you want to order another cup of coffee and read the paper after the plates are cleared. The restaurant is busier on weekdays when hotel guests and local businesspeople are clamoring for a morning meal; for the best experience, opt for a later breakfast when the dining room is less crowded.
