Eater Inside: Malibu's Terra Restaurant

Terra, Alen Lin, 9/13/07

Terra Restaurant recently opened in the former Lino spot on the PCH. Owners are Chris and Kristine Bocchino who, combined, worked at Rix, Josie, Capo, Dry Creek Inn and most recently the Whisper Lounge at the Grove (he's the chef, she's front of the house). The menu reflects their time spent on a sabbatical in Sonoma (creative, seasonal, semi-local), plus there's cozy bar, casual patio, and decent wine list. What it lacks in ocean views, it makes up for in focus. We'll take good food/cozy space over great view/overpriced mediocre fare (the MO of far too many Malibu restaurants) any day.
