Terry’s Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: While we continue to recommend the seared scallops in truffle honey, the plump and juicy oyster sliders with creamy buttermilk sauce top the charts on the bar menu. Middle Eastern-inspired appetizers include juicy lamb lollipops with mint pesto, and crispy, tender calamari with harissa mayonnaise. Chocolate lava cake will delight. For brunch, pair a Bloody Mary with the eggs Benedict over crab meat. Find a reason to order the crispy sweet potato fries with harissa aïoli for dipping. Retro cocktails (think stingers and sidecars) from an extensive list are made with fresh, quality ingredients. The bartender, Drago, fits right into this time machine with its swinging soundtrack --- he served cocktails to Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra. The patio is pet-friendly with a daily "Yappy Hour" for dogs and their human companions. There's also a reservations-only tea service on Friday and Saturday afternoons.
