About Us

The Terri Story

We get asked the question all the time: Who is Terri? She’s our mom.

Who are we? Craig and Mike.

We are not related, but as life would have it - both of our moms are named Terri. Two longtime friends who have a passion for delicious home-cooking. Comfort foods our moms raised us on have inspired our dishes at Terri.  After managing several premier restaurants in NYC such as Candle 79 and Cafe Blossom -  we opened Terri.

The first restaurant of it’s kind; we bring mom’s nutritious cooking to people on the go, serving thousands of people a day out of our three locations in Chelsea (60 West 23rd Street), the Financial District (100 Maiden Lane) and Midtown East (685 3rd Ave).

We’re a family company with small town roots and we approach business the same way. Our employees are our family and as a team we put the most care into every ounce of the menu. We bring you the best fresh ingredients with mom’s special touch. Our commitment to honest foods and serving fresh meals is what we’re all about.

So stop in and feel free to eat your heart out. It will thank you later!

Terri is owned and operated by Craig and Mike, and a handful of passionate individuals who put their heart and soul into every aspect. We’re hands-on, honest and real. We worked our way up from simple beginnings and believe delicious, nutritious food can be easy-to-get and affordable.
