MORE LAUGHS & MEMORIES

This holiday season let’s take full advantage of restaurants providing a festive atmosphere to dine. Plan a seamless holiday gift swap soiree with friends or organize your holiday meetup at your favorite local restaurant. 

This is your guide to ordering a variety of appetizers to be shared at one of my favorite restaurants, Terrain Café

Arriving earlier at your scheduled event to order a variety of appetizers for sharing will not only be a pleasant surprise once your guests arrive, but it will elevate the quality of time spent with one another without the distraction of having to decide what to order.  

Green Chickpea Hummus Board – A hearty but healthy option with assorted fresh veggies for dipping.

Cheese Board with Three Cheeses – Who doesn’t enjoy sharing a delectable Charcuterie board accompanied with a cocktail?
This spread includes crostini, fresh fruit, preserves, house-made pickles, and local honey.

Don’t forget to mix and match!

The Heirloom Tomato & Halloumi pairs nicely with the crostini and preserves from the cheese board.

Quinoa Fritters – An authentic flare with za’atar spiced yogurt.

Add a little sweetness to your event!

The Chocolate Moelleux is a gift in itself! The warm milk chocolate ganache filling will end your night in complete awe.

Take credit for executing the most hassle-free occasion of the season! Cheers!


My name is Neisha and I am a DMV native! I enjoy traveling, fashion, and photography, but my true love is FOOD. 

I was inspired to create @the_dmvlocal to showcase how eclectic and diverse the DMV food scene can be. Disheartened by the inability to travel during the pandemic, I took full advantage of exploring different cuisines and cultures represented in the area. By supporting local restaurants, I have found a community that brings people together through food. 

Follow my journey as I continue to experience and share the diversity our district has to offer!
