#2668 #S1295 - Terra Plata, Seattle - 12/6/2014

The best way to get a sense for Terra Plata is to simply take a quick look through the photos on their Facebook page or yelp. You'll see a wide array of lovely small plates, and eventually you'll get to a photo of the rooftop garden. Owner/chef Tamara Murphy was well known in Seattle for her work at Campagne and Elliot Bay Cafe, her Belltown restaurant Brasa, and her Smoke Farm event Burning Beast. At this restaurant in a 100-year-old auto showroom at the edge of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, the food is the star, but the cocktail menu -- heavily reliant on the garden -- is not to be underestimated.

For this visit I enjoyed a Dexter Gordon (cognac, Zucca, Chinato d'Erbetti, absinth, bitters) and a Cucumber Snow Cone. For dinner I had roast pig (chorizo, clams, tomato, hot smoked paprika, sofrito, bay-scented potato, chicharron) and Trista had the Beef Salpicon (charred wagyu sirloin, chili-potato puree, vegetable escabeche, chimichurri). Yum.
