While the most visually appealing appetizer was the citrus scallop ceviche, I must admit we did not finish it. Frankly, we just weren't thinking. This is something that would likely appeal to me in the summer. Light, sweet/tart, and the scallops were perfectly "cooked", it just didn't cut it - for us - on a winter night.
Terrene's wine list is well-organized by flavors - for instance, white+minerally+crisp or red+big+ intense, our choice of course, a reasonably priced Australian Elderton Shiraz.
And - on Saturday the foodfest continued. After running in the Frost Bite Series in Forest Park, we headed over to the now-indoor Tower Grove Farmers' Market and proceeded to Local Harvest Cafe, named Best New Restaurant for 2009 in River Front Times, for a late breakfast.
Talk about eating local. A chalkboard lists that 50% of the ingredients come from within 150 miles of St. Louis, and fun things like the (HOT!) pickled jalapenos I had on my egg/garbanzo bean/red potato casserole are made in house. Craig particularly enjoyed a rich, cream cheese stuffed whole-grain (Companion Bread) French toast. Three kinds of "help yourself" local Goshen Coffee is the java served. We love it - "Know Your Food."
