What’s more French than a passion for good food and good living?

At La Belle Helene, we bring this timeless philosophy to the vibrant Charlotte restaurant scene with a lively and casual take on the classic French brasserie concept. Designed by renowned Parisian designer Richard Lafond, whose family business has garnered more than 50 years of experience creating some of the most famous restaurant spaces in the “City of Lights,” La Belle Helene is equal parts warm and inviting, inspired by 19th century French covered passage architecture and romantic skylit evenings.

Our  authentic brasserie-style menu from Chef James Stouffer that highlights delicious local ingredients and a wide selection of specialty beers, signature cocktails, and French wines by the glass – making La Belle Helene the perfect destination in Charlotte for a leisurely lunch, after-work happy hour, special occasion, or impromptu everyday gathering with friends.
