Rooted in traditional African home cooking that emphasizes African-grown ingredients, Teranga is a culinary journey into the depth, diversity, and deliciousness that the motherland has to offer.  In Senegal, “Teranga” is perhaps the most highly regarded value.  Roughly translated, it means “good hospitality.”  In practice, Teranga reflects how one treats a guest—with open arms and a seat around the bowl.  Teranga’s menu is created by Executive Chef and Co-Founder, Pierre Thiam.


Teranga is open during our regular public hours:

Tuesday—Thursday, 8am—7pm

Friday, 8am—9pm

Saturday, 9am—9pm

Sunday, 9am—7pm
