Terra’s delicious eats and amazing reputation have stood the test of time because of their constant innovation, expansion, strict culinary standards and impeccable service.
There was a lot of things to celebrate the weekend I dined at Terra. It was their 20th anniversary, and President and Partner Ian Chase, Executive Chef,Proprietor Stephen Perrin and Maitre d’/ Partner Michael De Tommaso had just recently established Terra and the affiliated restaurants under one umbrella as the Substance Food Group. Congratulations gentlemen, I can’t wait to see what Substance Food Group does next!
Let’s get into the yummy details of my dining experience at Terra!
Our evening at Terra started off with a refreshing glass of Prosecco, followed by a fruity spin on one of my favourite drinks- the Mojito!
Raspberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Fresh Mint, Bacardi Rum, Citrus, Soda Water
Wow, mojitos should always be this fruity and flavourful…and just when I thought it couldn’t get any better than this fantastic fruity drink, it did! Lets check out some of the delicious food selections that Terra is serving up!
