WNLA caught owner Theo Tasu in a hurry upon reaching out to him for questions on Monday, but they did confirm the Terra E Mare’s future tenancy will be where The Bellwether once was. This comes after The Bellwether’s otherwise successful five years of operation at this location. As WNLA previously reported, owners Ann-Marie Verdi and Ted Hopson made the announcement after adding up all the costs and realizing The Bellwether just wasn’t sustainable anymore. 

Tasu hasn’t revealed anything off of the menu for Terra E Mare, which means “land and sea.” The similarly titled dish “Calamarata Terra E Mare” is a pasta made with shrimp, herbs, and spices and other outposts called “Terra E Mare” across the globe serve an array of seafood. Whether Tasu’s “land and sea” restaurant is related or not remains to be seen.
