Terri in NYC: Fast food? Yes, please!

Since I’m on a juice kick, I thought I’d share a quick post on one of my favorite fast food lunch spots in New York City.

Did she just say “fast food”?

Yes, please!

Terri is a vegetarian quick service restaurant located at 60 West 23rd Street. If you’re anywhere nearby you must make a point to stop in. Grab a juice, a healthy fast food meal, or a sweet treat, and be on your way with nutrition in hand.

Terri makes vegetarian meals that taste like favorites such as a “Meatball” Subs, “Bacon Chicken” Cheddar Ranch Sandwiches, and Chick Pea “Tuna” Melts. All of their sandwiches can be made on gluten-free bread and wraps with gluten-free tortillas.

Terri strives to use organic ingredients and super foods. Wholesome salads, smoothies, and juices are just a few more healthy options you’ll find.

I love these juices to go.

Now this is one happy, makeup-needing, lady with a green juice to start her day!

Ordering a gluten-free wrap is a rare pleasure. Nashville can’t yet provide me with such an experience. So I always get a wrap when I go to Terri. They’re grilled closed and actually stay together, unlike many gluten-free wraps.

Safe enough to unwrap neatly in a cab.

Grilled so perfectly that they hold together even when racing to the airport at breakneck speed. (When do NYC cabs not race somewhere at breakneck speed?)

This Thai “Chicken” Wrap passed the bite test.

And more than passed the taste test!

But their Hummus & Avocado Wrap is my favorite.

If only I’d had one more hand to carry one of these Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting. I don’t think they would have passed the cab test.

Healthy, vegetarian fast food is a dream. But at Terri that dream comes true.

I swear someday I’m moving to New York…

Readers, dish!

  1. YUM! I need to tell Son about this spot for sure! Oh, and, LOL on the “cab test.” :-)

    that was funny. Yes, I WISH there were somewhere in Nashville we could get this yummy GF food.

  3. That wrap looks amazing! I love my small town life, but I’d give anything for just one good gf restaurant around here… Though at least the lack of them is helping me learn to be a better cook!

    Their menu reminds me of the vegan ice cream place around the corner from my best friend. They do ice cream, fresh juices, and vegan salads, sandwiches, wraps, etc. All gluten-free, too. 😀

    I have been to teri! They had some great options, i just tried the soup one day. Next time you’re in nyc organic avenue and the juice press (both have several locations in the city) and both have some awesome raw vegan gluten free “fast food” and juices. The kale salad at organic ave is cravable and the “sweet potato pie” juice at juice press is awesome.

    • Heather says:

      Thanks for the suggestions! Organic Avenue and The Juice Press are now on my list! We’ll be there soon…never enough time to sample all that I want to while we’re there! Sweet potato pie juice? May need to plan a trip just for that one!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
