New: Slow Food dinner, messy BLTs, more

Noble's has brought out its "2 Napkin BLT" (at right) for the summer: "you'll welcome the mess!" as the restaurant puts it. 6801 Morrison Blvd.; 704-367-9463.

The restaurant also has a Slow Food dinner coming up Aug. 6: Five dollars of the $75 cost will go to the Slow Food Charlotte chapter, to encourage awareness food that is "good, clean and fair." Among the five courses: pan-seared Sunburst trout with New Town Farms Ossabaw Ham consommé; grilled Wild Turkey Farms Berkshire pork chops with seared Anson Mills polenta and S.C. peach butter; and fried Bosky Acres chevre-stuffed squash blossoms.

Meanwhile, the Terrace Cafe has a new dinner menu, with six new entrees, including Greek salad, sandwiches of chicken, duck and Wagyu beef (burger), a catfish po' boy and vegetarian plate. Also new: the place's hours, which shift to 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Monday, to 9 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, and 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday. 4625 Piedmont Row Drive South; 704-554-6177.
