Promoting itself as “continental cuisine”, Harmony Terrace is more specifically a Romanian restaurant. Located on 41st street, just north of Greenpoint Avenue, it offers a relatively upscale dining experience.
There is in fact a bar, but this is not your typical “bar & grill.” There are many intimate 2-person tables, white cloth, and a generally more upscale atmosphere (although certainly not super fancy or anything like that).
There is a large selection of alcohol – not just beer and wine (a full wine list), but also various liquors. We tried this classic Romanian beer (Timisoreana; $5), which comes in these large 500 mL bottles, and is very good!
There is a variety of pickled items available, including these pickled mixed vegetables ($5). The portion was surprisingly large (in fact, we weren’t able to finish it and took the rest home – this picture is after we already ate all we could!). And the pickling on these is very good – better than at Romanian Garden.
This classic eastern European dish ($11) consists of two large breaded chicken pieces. The meat was great, and I couldn’t have asked for more. Each entree comes with a choice of side: vegetables (seen here), polenta, mashed potatoes, or french fries.
This chicken leg with (potent) garlic sauce was priced unusually higher than most of the other dishes, at around $15. It’s seen here with polenta on the side – but even with that, they still add a few pickled vegetables on the side. Like the breaded chicken, it was well-cooked and delicious. Overall a very good dinner at Harmony Terrace!
