The mostly Italian and seasonal menu at Terrapin highlights the best of the region’s ingredients, from shellfish to house-made burrata. The patio feels warm and cozy with tons of decorative plants and soft lights, and is a quiet respite from other oceanfront properties where you can regularly see and hear wailing kids and surrey bike near-accidents. The watermelon burrata salad tastes like an ideal summer afternoon while the fresh pastas have the perfect amount of springiness. Definitely save some room for dessert: the peanut butter bar is made with local peanuts and has been on Terrapin’s menu for more than 10 years. The seasonal sweets like the deconstructed cheesecake with whipped ricotta, fig compote, and burnt honey ice cream are also rich without feeling too heavy or sweet.
