Hola, Tierra!

On Monday, an “06880” reader emailed that Tierra — the Latin-inspired restaurant in the basement of the old Town Hall — had closed. I called, but the phone just rang and rang. No answer; no message about hours, reservations — nada.

Yesterday afternoon around 2 p.m., I called again. Same thing.

I went down, to the alley entrance between Spruce and Restoration Hardware. The entrance was not well shoveled. I peered inside. All was dark. I took a photo.

This was the entrance to Tierra, yesterday afternoon.

I checked the website. It said, “Siesta menu daily, 3-5 p.m.” I looked for a Facebook page. There was none.

I posted a story saying Tierra was closed.

It drew 17 comments, about the food and service. Reviews were mixed. No one said, “no! It’s open!”

Tonight, WestportNow reports, Tierra was open for business. There’s a photo too (and a caption, saying they no longer serve lunch).

Tierra is definitely open.

But there’s still no sign outside.

Adios, Tierra

Tierra — the Latin-inspired restaurant located underneath Spruce in the old Town Hall next to Restoration Hardware — has served its last lobster ceviche, chicken chilaquiles and lamb arepas.

The food got pretty decent reviews. The service was inconsistent. And — tucked away in an alley — it was not easy to find.

However, some of its less-than-uno-año run may be its own fault. One Westporter shook his head at the news.

“They never even put out a sign,” he says. That tells you something.
