Terra Plata is the Captain Planet of organic eateries, highlighting choices from air, land, and sea. They've also got a rooftop garden.
Everything on this stunning, triangular-shaped restaurant's "earth to plate"-inspired menu tastes better when you're surrounded by an edible garden, one story above the considerable fray of the always bustling Melrose Market. Especially the Korean-style short ribs or the Monday Night Paella. But if you want to score a spot on what was an already crowded rooftop you'd better make a reservation, or settle for one of their extensive to-go options.
Terra Plata’s rooftop is almost unbeatable in terms of ambiance, but let’s talk about the food: hyper local and ever-evolving, Chef Tamara Murphy’s menu is always in-season and always delicious. Dine-in service has returned but proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test (within 72 hours of your visit) is required for entry.
Terra Plata’s menu is the essence of farm-to-table cooking, and their rooftop patio is well worth spending an evening on. Get in on the Monday night paella club, and consider supporting their Food is Love project, which is feeding families in need.
How to order: Schedule a curbside pickup here, or get your food delivered via Caviar. Oh, and for all the paella lovers out there: Sign up for the Monday night pickup here.
