Terra, the restaurant on the top floor of Eataly, is supposedly famous for its wood-fired grill and oven. We actually like the greenhouse-style roof and hanging plants more, but hey, we weren’t hired to be part of their marketing team. We were hired, however, to eat food, which is hit or miss here. Most of the grilled items are pretty decent, if a little pricey (the brick chicken is $28, for instance), but we’ve had better pasta elsewhere. Nevertheless, it’s still a great spot to enjoy some vermouth, especially if the outdoor patio is open. Terra is currently open for indoor and outdoor dining, as well as takeout and delivery.
