chef de cuisine
Cindy always had a passion for restaurants and hospitality starting back in high school. She had taken culinary arts for many years, but found the front of house is where she is happiest! Hospitality stole her heart; talking and making connections with people as well as her enthusiasm for food and beverage make such conversations most genuine and enjoyable! A real team player and incredible leader!

Since opening, in April of 2006, Terrapin has been the standard bearer for fine dining in Virginia Beach. Over the course of the last 13 years, although Terrapin has evolved slightly with changing tastes and trends, the menu and the design of the restaurant remained remarkably consistent.
In March of this year Terrapin closed for a week to re-invent itself. We re-modeled the interior, revamped the kitchen with the Josper oven and Dolly III pasta extruder and completely re-worked our dinner menu.
THE NEW LOOK
Our remodeling included a re-design of the bar display, a new color scheme for the restaurant and all new artwork which pays homage to the inspiration for the name Terrapin. The remodeling bring changes to everything from the floor to the ceiling giving Terrapin an exciting and fresh new look.
THE JOSPER OVEN
One of only a handful on the Eastern Seaboard, The Josper Oven is a charcoal burning enclosed grill with generous capacity that will allow larger, shareble dishes, such as whole chickens, and bone-in ribeyes for two. In addition, the Josper can also be used to roast and grill vegetables allowing the natural wood charcoal to add an extra depth of flavor.
VERO BOTTLED WATER
We are proud to offer Vero Bottled Water to our guests. Using the latest in purification technology, the Vero Water system bottles our still and sparkling water in-house resulting in a nearly zero carbon footprint. And, it tastes great!
