Since going to Melrose Market for the first time I’ve had a serious urge to go back so my husband and I tried Terra Plata for dinner the other night. It was a gorgeous night as we were going home from the airport and since they were still open we went for it!
The decor combines exposed wood beam ceilings with steel…it’s beautiful and what I often refer to as contemporary Northwest architecture. Philip Christofides of Arellano Christofides is responsible for this gorgeous space (in collaboration with owners Tamara Murphy and Linda Morton).
The food was outstanding as well! So flavorful that midway through the meal we ordered some bread just so we could sop up what was left on our plates:) We started with the Shisito peppers. Anytime I see those on a menu I always order them. We were lucky this time and didn’t get a hot one…nice! For my entrée I chose the Sea Bream with chorizo, clams, preserved lemon and tomatoes…awesome! I would order this again in a heartbeat. And for dessert…who can say no to homemade churros? Not us! Great choice and I can’t wait to go back. Maybe next time for brunch!
