Terra Plata Restaurant Review

: Located on the corner of trendy Melrose Market, Terra Plata has rustic urban charm that complements chef Tamara Murphy’s simply prepared “earth-to-plate” cuisine. The oddly shaped window-lined dining room is inviting with exposed wood beams and cement floors. While the upbeat ambience works for a fun evening it’s too noisy and tables are too cozy for an intimate dinner. Starring local and organic ingredients, the seasonally-inspired menu is unpretentious with tantalizing flavor combinations. Generous portions make even the small plates easy to share. Start with the house-made potato chips and an order of plump roasted grapes, an inventive alternative to the usual fruit and cheese plate. Crispy Brussels sprouts or the purple sunchokes are a must. Don’t miss the roast pig, one of Murphy’s signature dishes, which is prepared in a delicate broth and served with chorizo and clams. Tender short ribs are paired with polenta. Desserts include an apple empanada with popcorn ice cream and churros with chili chocolate ganache. The wine list is reasonably priced with good variety. Specialty cocktails are crafted with elements like cardamom-infused vodka. Service is knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing.
