Unlike having bicycles, apartments, and guard dogs, having many small plates can be just as effective as one big one. Munch on multiple options with today’s Groupon to Terra Restaurant & Bar in Hampton. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of tapas, sandwiches, and flatbreads.
- For $25, you get $60 worth of tapas, sandwiches, and flatbreads for a table of four or more.<p>
Terra’s menu is a lazy Susan of gourmet dishes prepared using local ingredients, with an emphasis on smaller, tapas-style entrees intended to be shared among a group. After futile searches for the Jolly Green Giant’s secret gardens, feel free dig into the tomato caprese salad, which is an open book of locally grown beefsteak tomatoes and house-made mozzarella before being garnished with a balsamic deduction and basil emulsion ($7.95). Alternatively, freshly shaved asparagus and razor-sliced Black Forest ham holes up in a flatbread with garlic-parmesan béchamel sauce ($8 for a half size; $12 for a full size). The restaurant’s elegant interior, patio, and unlimited shots of truth serum help set the stage for sharing plates and lively conversation. Feel free to pass around the smoked-salmon platter with capers, red onion, lemon, hard-boiled egg, radish, and fresh baguettes with roasted-garlic-goat-cheese spread ($7 for 4 oz.; $12 for 8 oz.).
Live jazz and R&B on weekend nights add to the upscale appeal, as does the atmospheric lighting and colorful art on the walls. Although this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, visitors can choose from more than 65 wines or make a parachute out of cocktail napkins at the full bar. Reservations are required.
