Having now been to Terroirs a couple of times, and been seated both downstairs and in the bar – I highly recommend this place ! If you can, eat downstairs as the menu is much more comprehensive and still has all the lovely bar snacks from upstairs available.
My standout dish without a doubt (fork stabbing was involved when someone tried to get one !) was the cantabrian anchovies. Such a beautifully simple dish and just amazing quality. Anchovies, butter, finely sliced shallots and bread. Could have done with a bit more bread, but apart from that…I even tried to find out where they sourced the anchovies from, but they were keeping that secret to themselves. Another standout was the pork and pistachio terrine. Followed up by the chicken with 40 cloves of garlic, I was in pure heaven.
The wine list is ridiculously long, almost tempting to close your eyes and go “meanie, minie, mo” especially if you're not that good with french wines – otherwise do what we did and go with someone who is. However, this is probably not the place to take someone who's not a meat fan, very limited options.
Now I just have to find another excuse to go back for another visit. Which I will definitely be doing.
