  • Guided by the seasonal harvest, our culinary team creates locally-inspired menus for all occasions. Our menus are tailored and customized to fit your style and event type to provide an elevated experience with the impeccable style for which terrain is renowned. We highlight organic and sustainable sources at every opportunity, and use only the freshest local products.

    On-site Cooking

    Seasonally roasted vegetables, artisanal cheese displays, and botanical desserts accompany our freshly caught seafood and locally-sourced proteins for a truly authentic experience. To ensure the freshest ingredients and most elevated taste, our culinary team will cook on-site, whether building an outdoor kitchen or using an in-home kitchen.

    Open Fire Experience

    Breathe in the fragrant scents of earthy smoke, while your meal is slowing roasting over crackling fire. We create an immersive dining experience through a meal cooked directly over hardwood flame and perfectly executed service, inspired by the style of an Argentinian asado.

    Many of our signature menu offerings are available for our open fire cooking option.

  • Deeply rooted in nature and plant life, terrain is inspired by the idea of merging house and garden to create an experience for all seasons, to shape a life lived outside and in. Celebrations with terrain reflect the cycle of the seasons and the bounty of the land, capturing the beauty of all things grown.

    Displays

    Botanical displays celebrate the season’s rich hues and natural textures. Our displays incorporate a mix of product showcased in our stores and venues as a base layer to build upon. From serving trays to natural wood boards, bountiful bowls to elevated serve ware; our team will work with your planner to build a rental list needed to bring the experience to life.

    Service

    We’ve worked with a team of designers to create a uniform that echoes the roots we’ve grown in our own establishments. We feel it’s important to bring our sense of hospitality and signature aesthetic to any event. Each of our staff members will provide a personable and professional experience whom can speak to our culinary creations but also allow for set up and clean-up to be effortless on your end.
