When you pull into a strip mall and find a restaurant next to a Rite Aid, you might be a little skeptical. But once you’re inside Terra Terroir, you realize that you stumbled on something special. The menu here is a bit all over the place, with everything from deviled eggs and a kale caesar to Mandarin glazed salmon and pasta, but split some small plates and go deep into the wine list. Try and get a spot on their outdoor patio because between the covered canopy and greenery, it’s a great place to spend a few hours.
