Fire in The Cypress!

Don’t panic, there is no literal fire in our community; however, we are all “on fire” for the Fire in the City competition and our competing Executive Chef Brady Lutz!


If you are not familiar, the Fire in the City competition is a very prestigious chefs’ competition pitting the top chefs from the finest restaurants in The Queen City against one another in head-to-head battles to see who is the last chef standing. The competition’s main focus is utilizing local, North Carolina ingredients, centered around a “mystery ingredient” that is revealed to the competing chefs just hours before the competition! The attendees, along with a select panel of professional judges, blindly taste each course and vote on a variety of factors to determine which course is their favorite, which ultimately determines which chef reigns supreme. The winner of each evening competes again in a bracket of chefs until there is only one winner.

And of course we know that one winner is Chef Brady Lutz! We are eager to prove that not only is the dining at The Cypress of Charlotte the best food in any Continuing Care Retirement Community, but the best food in Charlotte! With his years of training and flair for creativity, we are confident that our chef will wow the taste buds of everyone in attendance.

If you want to be a part of the fun, you can purchase a ticket to Chef Brady’s competition night, April 6th, right here.
