Dinner at Terra Plata to celebrate Mother's Day


Some sharable plates at Terra Plata on Capitol Hill. 

To celebrate Mother's Day, my family and I dined at Terra Plata. They have a lovely rooftop garden, which is located on the second floor. We were lucky to get a reservation for the rooftop garden. The day was warm and gorgeous, which was so nice after a long winter. The sun beat down as we dined, which felt great. 

They serve farm to table cuisine, which they source from local growers and artisan producers. The dishes are sharable, and they offer a nice variety of starters, mains, and desserts. This was our first time eating there, but we'd been hearing so many good things for years. 

We started off with an Old Fashioned. To eat we ordered the House Made Potato Chips, the Sea Wolf Bakery Baguette, the Hand Cute Frites, the Tuna Crudo, and the Roasted Grapes. The Crudo had tuna, onions, mandarin oranges, and a spicy sauce on the side. Their menu changes seasonally, so this dish isn't on their website, therefore I'm unsure of the exact description and ingredients. The dish was so fresh and light, but I found the red sauce on the side to be too spicy. 

The Roasted Grapes were a unique dish I'd never tried before. The grapes came with oil cured olives and walnuts, and they were served warm. The dish was served with crostini and Cabrales cheese. The cheese tasted like goat cheese and was delicious! My boys loved the frites, bread, and chips- who wouldn't? Each dish was well made, and they all disappeared quickly. Our server was on it. She seemed to know what I needed before I asked, and she was cheerful and accommodating. 

My son had one of their house-made sodas, a Cherry-Vanilla flavor. We got a second round of cocktails. I tried the Seattle Raindrop. It had Vodka, ginger, grapefruit, cardamom, and cava. My husband had a South Bound. This drink had jimador reposado, sage simple syrup, ancho reyes, pineapple, lime, and fireworks bitters. While we sipped our cocktails and tried the different dishes, we took in the pretty views of downtown Seattle and the garden on the roof deck.

For dessert, we shared an order of the Churros. They came with some tasty chocolate sauce for dipping! Terra Plata is a destination dining spot and is perfect for special occasions! 

The House-made Potato Chips. They were so crisp and perfectly seasoned. They were served with a chive creme fraise for dipping.

Cheers to Mother's Day and trying new restaurants!

When I dip, you dip! The chocolate sauce and whipped cream was so good with the Churros!
