Fortunately, all you have to do is journey to Terra Restaurant on Providence Road: For $20, get $40 to spend on a menu of seasonal food and non-alcoholic drinks. Begin your meal with esgargots baked in a garlic-butter sauce, and then, indulge your palate in French cuisine, such as the duck confit with flageolet beans and sausage or the Certified Angus Beef filet mignon, served with red wine onions and a shallot reduction and topped with Gorgonzola butter. Featured in the Charlotte Business Journal, Creative Loafing, and Apollonaire, Terra (which has been open since 2006) is the perfect place to settle in for a decadent feast -- without ever having to track your meal in the wide, open yonder.
