"Chef Kroner’s strong connection to food and a childhood spent in and around the restaurant industry ultimately shaped his career. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering from the University of Colorado in Boulder and a brief period working in this field, Chef Kroner came to the realization that he had a true calling, and it was in the business of food. He then attended the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan, New York, where he later became an instructor. He has also worked under the tutelage of such notable chefs as Emeril Lagasse at the Food Network and Bobby Flay at Manhattan’s famed Mesa Grill.
"Over the past fourteen years, Terrapin’s success, both commercial and critical has continued to grow. The restaurant has earned numerous awards including “Best Restaurant” in the Hudson Valley by Chronogram Magazine; “Best Appetizer” and “Best Restaurant in Dutchess County” by Hudson Valley Magazine and the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for several years running. Terrapin has also earned a Zagat rating of 27 for food and 26 for service."

October 11, 2014: Terrapin claims to have an Organic Children's Menu, but when we called to ask what was organic or grass-fed on the menu we were told that they do not have any menu items that are organic or grass-fed! We called back a second time and asked to speak with a manager. We were again told the menu does not really have any organic options.
Our children's health is important to all of us. If we have made a decision to feed our children organic or grass-fed food - it is unthinkable that a restaurant would be so deceptive and misleading as to mislabel a children's menu! What else are they not telling us about their food?
