I have spent most of my life in Charlotte but have traveled all over the world eating&drinkIng great wines. My husband&I were so excited to find Terra a few years back.The staff is kind and fun they know their stuff.Now the food.My husband loves the escargots(the only place in Charlotte that offers this).I love the pate en croute this is ground pork ,beef,& veal ,wrapped in puff pastry w/ a drizzle of reduction of port wine.Love it!! For dinner I enjoy the roasted chicken w/ tarragon cream sauce&my husband likes to get the steak frites the fries are always the same perfect! All meal are served w/ wonderful fresh bread& family style veggies.Terra is a must try. we go 2 to 4 times a month.
What a great restaurant. It is located next to Starbucks on Providence Rd. (Myers Park/Eastover area). The owner is in the restaurant nightly and makes you feel very welcome. The osso bucco was "fall of the bone" delicious and the wine was great! The owner even took care of a table that was being loud and obnoxious. All around an A+++
I have been homesick for the Italian Coffee shop I was a regular at in NY. Sergio and Bahni of Bel Caffe have brought a touch of Italy to Charlotte with the best espresso south of NYC. It is a great atmosphere with great people and great coffee. It is the ONLY coffee shop in Charlotte that makes coffee like my Nonna used to make it.
