Terra Mediterranean is now open at The District at The  Shops at Willow Bend. The restaurant joins Mexican Bar Company, Whistle Britches and Knife.

Opened by brothers, Jalal Chanaa and Adam Shanaa in Dallas in the early 90s, Terra Mediterranean has become an popular stop for foodies hungry for fresh, healthy cuisine.  The menu ranges from freshly prepared hummus, salads and moussaka to gyros, saffron chicken, as well as an array of meat and fish kabobs.

During the day, the crowd-pleasing lunch buffet is loaded with traditional Mediterranean favorites while dinner  features  specialty  items  such  as  grilled  sea  bass, lamb chops,  and oven-roasted trout. The combination of quality meats and seafood, fresh  produce, legumes, olive oils, whole grains, and  bold  spices  create authentic flavors that are  distinctly delicious.
