A Sandwich a Day Dana Abu-Dayyeh Post a comment

Although I have enjoyed many of the dishes on Terroir East Village's menu, I find myself returning to their Duck Prosciutto Sandwich ($11) time and time again. It's duck breast cured with orange zest, coriander, and thyme to make a very ham-like piece of charcuterie. More

The Vegetarian Option: Terroir

The Vegetarian Option Howard Walfish 4 comments

Terroir opened just a few years ago, but it already seems like one of the elder statesmen of the East Village restaurant scene. The space is small and comfortable and the staff is friendly and welcoming. The tables and utensils are communal, and the focus is on small plates to go with the extensive wine and beer menu. If you go before 6 PM, you can take advantage of Happy Hour specials on the drinks, most notably a free glass of sherry (I'd recommend the Oloroso) to go along with the food. Oh, did I mention the food? It's excellent, and there are plenty of vegetarian options. More

TGI Fry-Day Ed Levine Post a comment

His addictive Beet Risotto Balls with Gorgonzola ($7) are simultaneously tangy and gooey (that'd be the cheese), crunchy and salty (from an excellent fry), and genuinely beet-y; texture-wise, they've got an amazing outside shell and a molten, oozy core. More
