Terrapin Review

This 1842 church contains two dining options: a casual bistro and a more-formal dining room. The bistro menu lists soups, stews, and a make-your-own sandwich board, as well as traditional entrées. Expect a lively crowd at the bar, especially on weekends. With white-cloth-draped tables, the main dining area is quieter. The food veers from creative to comforting. A popular starter is baby-arugula salad with goat-cheese wontons. Three sauces—roasted-shallot hollandaise, mole verde, and ancho chili—accompany the salmon dish.

    Terrapin Review

    Been here twice, and both times were excellent. Long sequences of courses focusing on ingredients with few embellishments. Meats (lamb especially) are excellent - succulent, tender, flavorful. But most memorable are their treatments of vegetables and breads, usually my least favorite parts of the meal. Some of their food philosophies are a little overtly liberal for me, but the quality is undeniable. A sensory experience.
