Launching on 3rd September 2019, The Ghost Group will claim their space on 120 Finchley Road to debut the first of many casual dining concepts across London. Set across two floors, Terra Terra will be an experiential neighbourhood destination, to be enjoyed any time of the day; from baked pastries, fresh juices and espressos in the morning, to late night signature cocktails, hand cut pasta and market driven specials.
Inspired by the rural simplicity of Italian cooking, Terra Terra’s offering is centred on these artisanal creations. Using the purest Italian and seasonal British produce, Terra Terra’s menu delivers progressive and simple dishes that celebrate the versatile and subtle ways the ingredients can be enjoyed.
The menu journey begins with a choice of Chichetti’s, followed by a flavoured selection of small plates featuring beef carpaccio with crispy parmesan and the tuna crudo served with smoked aubergine and stracciatella. Also on offer are Terra Terra’s in-house pizzette and pasta creations. The culinary mantra is to locate the best organic produce that has been nurtured and cultivated by farmers and purveyors who share Terra Terra’s passion for quality. Dishes such as; bigoli pasta served with aglio, olio, peperoncino & clams and the fennel sausage, roasted peppers & chilli oil pizzette, infer this sentiment.
And for those on the go, they can pop in and grab a fresh detox juice, colourful salads and panino available throughout the day.
As with true Italian culture, apperitivo plays a large part at Terra Terra. Inspired by Italian culinary traditions and the four changing seasons, Terra Terra have taken a time honoured approach to create a cocktail list which focuses on the use of herbs, vinegars and spices to deliver restoring Dry Martinis, bracing Americanos and Terra Terra’s Signature Spritzer, a British inspired Italian aperitif.
The subtle Italian tones of the decor compliment the flavours of the menu and bring to life the longing for simple, honest Italian living, making time spent at Terra Terra a welcoming, relaxing and memorable experience.
