Outdoor Dining, Perfected: A New Rooftop Oasis, Wood-Fired Grill, and Herbal Cocktails at Eataly
Good news for Boston’s dining scene! Eataly’s beloved third-floor restaurant, Terra, is now offering a spacious rooftop dining option—the Terra Patio. With Terra’s emphasis on seasonality and straight-from-the-land ingredients, the 2,000-square-foot Terra Patio provides the perfect outdoor space to enjoy wood-fired flavors and natural ambience.
The patio offers a greenhouse-like lushness to complement the layered, smoke-kissed flavors of Terra’s seasonal dishes. Terracotta planters, abundant greenery, and twinkling string lights make you feel like you’ve found a secret oasis—the perfect respite from busy city life. In a beautifully unified experience, patio-goers can immerse themselves in the earthy ambience, Terra’s rustic dishes, and herbaceous cocktails. The backdrop of Boston’s skyline, with the Prudential Center high above, completes the picture.
The best part? Not only is the patio full-service, but it also includes new seasonal dishes designed to fit the outdoors.
New items include Spiedi sul Ceppo, meaning “skewers on a log.” These giant skewers feature a rotating grilled selection of fresh produce, meat, and fish from Terra’s favorite local producers. Along with the skewers, all of Terra’s dishes highlight the restaurant’s strong connection to New England with their incorporation of seasonal ingredients from regional farms like Drumlin Farm, Island Creek Oysters, Chickering Farm, and Wulf’s Fish. Every day, Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti and team cook the local ingredients to perfection over the roaring flames of the wood-fired grill—allowing simple flavors to shine.
Classic dishes include the Agnello alla Scottadito made with signature double-cut Colorado lamb, Aceto Balsamico I.G.P, Villa Manodori extra virgin olive oil and the Cuore di Lattuga, a grilled little gem lettuce salad in a sweet garlic vermouth dressing.
The patio even comes with its own cocktail—Il Giardino delle Erbe—a refreshing botanical cocktail with a gin blend, St. George Bruto Americano, Luxardo Maraschino, blueberries, lemon, and smoked sea salt. The brightly colored drink is served in a mini carafe with an accompanying decorative glass of ice overflowing with herb garnishes of rosemary, mint, sage, basil, and thyme. Guests are invited to pour the cocktail into their own glass as a symbolic way of watering their personal herb garden before they drink.
As always, guests can pair their dishes with wine from Boston’s largest Italian wine list, artisanal cocktails reflective of the season, and refreshing local beers.
