Arterra Restaurant Review

: Chef Evan Cruz has introduced a redesigned, seasonally driven small-plates menu, influenced by his travels around the world. Expect dishes like savory short rib bulgogi with kimchi and toasted rice on a mung bean cake. Smoky padrĂ³n peppers are served with black garlic, pork belly and chives. Sushi is available as well. Arterra is launching a different craft cocktail program, too, starting with a well-curated bourbon line-up featuring 15 premium, hand-crafted selections, two bourbon-infused cocktails and bourbon flights.
