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

Please follow Teranga on social media for news of any exceptions for ticketed or private events.
