Don’t let the strip mall across from the Brookhaven MARTA Station fool you. Once you step inside Terra Terroir Kitchen & Bar, you are transported to an elegant, warm atmosphere with captivating artwork and photography. Stroll out into the covered patio, and you are transported again to a relaxed garden setting with a small, cascading waterfall and lush landscaping. With awards such as the Winner of Diners’ Choice 2015 and multiple Awards of Excellence from Wine Spectator, you know that you are in the right place for fine dining and a very smart wine list.
I arrived just before the lunch crowd and was seated right away on their gorgeous outdoor patio. I began with a very healthy portion of Crispy Brussels Sprouts with paprika-spiked dipping sauce, which is rumored to be the best in Atlanta. I will vouch that they were scrumptious and filling as an appetizer.
I also enjoyed the Bordeaux Lamb Burger, which was seasoned and cooked just right with fresh mint, brie, lettuce, tomato and onions and served with a side of harissa mayo. It was served with a healthy portion of sweet potato fries, which complemented the burger perfectly. Next time, I might treat myself to the Walla Walla Buffalo Burger, which looked enticing. There are also a number of garden sandwiches on the lunch menu such as BBQ Salmon and a Mediterranean Lamb Wrap.
Their dinner menu offers specialties such as Grilled Sea Bass, Seared Salmon, Deconstructed Lobster Ravioli and Grilled Lamb Chop, to name a few. I would really like to sample their dinner entrees and pair it with some of the exceptional wine selected from their very extensive and smart collection. A cozy setting, excellent food and personal service made my visit memorable and I hope to return to Terra Terroir soon.
