Hats off to Christa Csoka and The Artisan’s Palate. As President of The Gold District of Charlotte, I have had many opportunities to plan and host a variety of events, from neighborhood meetings to special community events and festivals. At the top of my call list is Christa Csoka. Chef Csoka has the gift of visualizing an event and tailoring a menu to carry an event’s message. The fare she serves is always fresh, local and full of flavor. Without the overblown pomp of current small plate novelty shops, Christa’s unique dishes are eye-appealing tapestries of flavor. I have referred many people to Christa and always look forward to attending events when she is involved.  I’m a fan. You will become a fan at first bite. – Caren Wingate
