I did, in fact, take an International Cuisine class during culinary school, but the only Mediterranean part of the process I can remember is making pita bread. Please do not tell anyone. Maybe that’s why I’m having a hard time writing this article after what seems like 6 months of trying. There was one funeral and a few weeks-in-a-row of drama, but it really can’t be that hard to understand.
Hummus. Yes, I get hummus completely. I also get buffets and there is a buffet at Terra. They also have lovely owners who know how to run a restaurant. Maybe we should move on and discuss– calamari. Calamari is a no-brainer whether it is on a Mediterranean menu or not. This particular calamari was the bomb. Sometimes calamari is a fried fail, but not at Terra. It was perfectly seasoned and fried beyond the point of being able to ever forget about it.
Terra also offers a vegetarian moussaka appetizer with eggplant, tomato, jalapeño, onion and chickpea. After asking google to explain the definition of moussaka, things started to make a lot more sense. Other apps available are feta cheese bread, grilled artichoke, steak tartar and hummus with lamb. There are several options for soup and salad. All of Terra’s salads can be served with chicken, gyro, salmon or shrimp.
I would recommend Terra’s grilled sea bass to anyone and not just because sea bass makes the world a better place. This dish is spot-on in every way. Along with other fish, entrée choices are saffron or roasted chicken, gyros, kabobs and a lamb burger. When all else fails, recite the menu while stating the obvious.
