Right now, I’m counting the days until temperatures warm up enough to spend time on the rooftop patio at Terra Plata. This Capitol Hill restaurant (courtesy of Chef Tamara Murphy and housed in the foodie centric Melrose Building) opened up this top floor stunner late last season and is undoubtedly one of the best pieces of rooftop real estate in the city. The deck seats 70 people and offers heat lamps for fickle Seattle nights. Terra Plata’s full menu is available for guests, but if last season was any indicator, I expect to see Murphy making more use of her fancy commercial outdoor grill for specialty nights this spring and summer. Fitted with salvaged wood and a perimeter of vegetable gardens, this is where I want to spend warm Seattle days … and nights.
