Terra Terroir Restaurant Review

: This unpretentious neighborhood bistro has a well-developed local following. Work by the late Georgia sculptor Ivan Bailey spreads a trail of floral, vegetal and animal forms across the top of the entrance partition. But eye appeal aside, dine here for the value found in the menu and wine list. Chef Mameleye Mbaye, a native of Senegal, has left the restaurant, leaving Tony Sforza in command of the kitchen. The place is famous for its bison burger, although we miss the buffalo meatloaf that used to be a regular item. All year long, the salmon filet is a fine morsel cooked just to medium rare; its specific treatment will vary from time to time. For dessert, the coconut cake is classic. The wine list includes numerous hard-to-find selections among those more familiar, with many by the glass. The bar easily could be viewed as a wine bar, and sommelier Chris Driollet knows what he's doing. But if you have to bring your own, the corkage fee is $25. Terra Terroir holds many wine-focused special dinners and events.
