AquaTerra Grille in Pearl River features a menu that specializes in both aqua and terra. A prime example? The signature (and eponymous) dish called AquaTerra: 6 ounces of filet mignon paired with a 6-ounce Brazilian lobster tail, grilled asparagus and Yukon Gold wedged potatoes.

The restaurant, in the former Cherry Brook Inn on Middletown Road, has a spacious dining room with wooden tabletops, dark wood trim and earth (or should we say terra) tones — and a blue (or rather, aqua) banquette.

A bar area, where you’ll often find cocktail and happy hour specials, has flat-screen TVs, too.

The owners, Steve and Stacy Lambos, have a menu with pastas such as the Seafood Marechiara, a combination of clams, mussels, shrimp and calamari over linguine in tomato sauce; sandwiches, such as a monster 10-ounce Black Angus burger with crunchy seasoned fries; and entrees such as the Rib Eye Delmonico.

There’s also a raw bar. — Joy Weinrich

  1. Why do these places insist on spelling “grille” the way it’s spelled for a fence or railing? The word when associated with cooking and food is “GRILL”!!
