The brasserie Terrine has the kind of picture-perfect backyard that city dwellers love to covet. The spacious courtyard is dominated by a massive Bischofia javanica tree, which shelters long red banquettes and bistro-style chairs, all softly illuminated by candlelight. In a city with ideal weather for outdoor dining—but not many places to do it—that alone makes Terrine a welcome addition. The fact that the French-influenced food is stellar too feels like a bonus. Chef and co-owner Kris Morningstar, formerly of Blue Velvet and Ray’s and Stark Bar, tackles everything from German cuisine (a spaetzle dish is studded with wild mushrooms, pecorino, and scallions) to Italian (supple agnolotti is filled with truffle rice and hazelnuts), but the standout is a housemade charcuterie board. You’ll find not only the standard salumi but inventive terrines and pâtés as well—plus, it’s big enough to draw covetous glances from other diners, just like that backyard.
