Terra Plata - Seattle

Last weekend, we went to Terra Plata, which is a farm to table restaurant with a rooftop garden that would be pretty cool to check out in the summer. Seattle restaurants always have great interiors and this one is no different (minus the Christmas lights in February..) Anyway, on to the food...

Marinated beets with arugula, pistachios, and aged ricotta. Preparing beets take so long at home so I always make sure to indulge in them when I'm out.

Crispy brussels sprouts, cured ham, and rosemary. Why are human beings stereotyped to hate brussels sprouts as kids when they are so delicious? I love the lightly crisped leaves, and I'm used to having bacon chopped into brussels sprouts usually but this is my first time having it with prosciutto and now I dream of this dish..

Medjool dates stuffed with ValdeĆ³n cheese wrapped in lardon. Dates, good. Cheese, good. Fat, good. Recipe for success.

Bone marrow with grapefruit watercress crostini. That is me going to town alone with the bone marrow because the man doesn't like it. Anyway, the outfit worn here is from this post. (Btw, if you're really attention-to-detail you may have noticed I'm wearing my wedding band because the engagement ring is currently getting resized. Can't wait to get it back!)

Flank steak with duck fat fries. That little duck's fat certainly makes potatoes so much tastier..
