Little Havana newcomer Terras has been getting plenty of buzz for being the first rooftop bar in the up-and-coming neighborhood. But the space is also a full service restaurant, serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily on its local produce-friendly menu and we got a first taste.
Terras, helmed by chef Harry Capacetti is a decidedly vegetable-centric menu with plenty of fresh produce being the star of the menu. Appetizer highlights include a Coconut & Hearts of Palm Salad tossed with ginger, fresno chili, lime, malanga, and salt; Black Beans and Queso Dip with right out of the fryer plantains; and Alcapurrias made with plantains, mushrooms, and cilantro yogurt.
Salads at Terras are worth the order, too, with highlights including the Black Kale Salad with watercress, crispy kale, and cojita cheese; Squash Salad made with thinly sliced squash, roasted pepitas, watercress, lemon yogurt, and wild herbs.
Heartier dishes included the almost meat-like Roasted Mushrooms, which we the hit of the table, and topped with goat cheese and house hot-sauce. Bite-sized Tacos filled with barbacoa, roasted mushrooms, or chicken, were also a crowd pleaser and would be easy to eat in both a social setting and during a seated meal.
Since the space is a bar as well, plenty of cocktails can also be found created by Brittney Olsen where they are using pulled herbs, fruits and spices from the property’s urban rooftop garden. Our favorites included the Mexcalyfan made with mezcal, Coconut Cartel rum, pineapple, orgeat, xocolatl bitters, and lemon; Peche Spritz made with rin quin quin, peche, red sorrel and prosecco; Trade Road with bourbon, rum, chartreuse, honey-ginger, orange mint, lemon; the classic Cuba Libre with Cuban oregano infused rum, Coca Cola, and lie; Furiosa made with tequila, aperol, falernum, lime, and hellfire bitters; and the Wildflower created with Gem & Bolt Mezcal, Hibiscus, and Lime and Sage-Coconut Milk.
