Last week my foodie heart (and stomach) was full! I dined at one of my long time MUSTS, Ecco, and discovered two new MUST Eat Atlanta restaurants, Tomo and Terra Terroir. While both Tomo and Terra Terroir made it on to our MUST Eat Atlanta List I really can’t help but write about Terra Terroir. I actually ended up eating their twice last week because I loved it so much!
Terra Terroir is the perfect example of never judging a book by it’s cover. First off it’s in a strip mall next to a Rite Aid. Not exactly what I think of when I think of fine dining. However, once you walk through the doors and on to the patio you definitely don’t get any “blue light special” vibe. While the inside is fine, you must sit on the patio.
Secondly, and my favorite part, Terra Terroir has an amazing selection of wine. But not only do they have an amazing selection of wine, they have even more amazing wine prices! For example I had a lovely 2007 Merry Edwards there on Thursday. Then on Friday, while dining at another restaurant which will remain nameless, had the same bottle of wine and it was DOUBLE the price! DOUBLE. And as if it could get any better it does on Mondays when all bottles $50 and under are half off! So if you need me on Monday, you’ll know where to find me.
Lastly the food. Fantastic. Night one I had a delicious portabella appetizer and the seasonal vegetable plate while the Mr. had lamb and the mother in law shrimp and grits. Satisfied customers across the board. Night two the caprese salad was beyond and the walnut pesto pasta…ugh worth the carbs.
So my loves, if you’re in Atlanta sashay on over to Terra Terroir and enjoy the evening. xoxo
