I know that the main reason one goes to Terroir and Ten Bells is for the wine. While drinking at these celebrated wine bars, what should one eat?

Thanks in advance.

    Ten Bells has very nice oysters, and they're only $1 'til 7pm. I also like the crab tartar (which is not raw crab, so it's a stupid name, but whatever) and the octopus salad. Ten Bells is also a good place to try regional cheeses - I think they get everything from Saxelby. That said, the food will not blow you away. It's snack-y food, reasonably priced, to eat while drinking.

      agreed. i've always been happy with the basic stuff, like the empanadas or the serrano. octopus and potatoes are ok too.

      I've heard the meatballs at terroir are terrific

        I think just about all the food at Terroir is terrific. The meatballs are famous. The sandwiches are fantastic. I love the pork blade steak -- but some might find it too salty.

        (I'm not dissing the stuff I left out -- it's ALL good. This is Marco Conaro. Serious food. Not at all an afterthought.)
