Corner Cooks was founded in 1999 by Betsy Simson who wanted to, in her words, “create a beautiful place on a beautiful street where something beautiful will be made every day.” As a former Creative Director in the Advertising business Betsy knows first hand that you have to deliver what you promise.

JERRY'S was born in 2008 and is connected to Corner Cooks through French doors. We have a menu based on seasonal flavors and French technique with eccletic influences. Our dinner specials menu begins every Thursday and runs till it runs out. Jerry was my father and at a ripe old age passed away in 2009. His picture graces the wall, his name forever on the door. All is dedicated to his love of life, sport, books, and food.

Enter the team:

Bridget Burns, She who rules the kitchen: came to us as an intern from Kendall College and then left us to become the sous chef and pastry chef for La Sardine restaurant. She came back to us (we begged) and is now head of our catering program as well as the chief honcho in the kitchen.

Julie Robbins: Julie came for a party one night about 4 years ago and returned to work in the kitchen with Larry. She has been busy with her 2 daughters and husband for the last 12 years and after much begging has agreed to work with us as Director of Development. She comes armed with an incredible sales background and we figure who better to get companies and people looking for new venues excited about us than someone excited about us?

Sari Sackrider: I met Sari years ago when she was with Tablescapes, our  party rental company. We became instant friends and last summer after much persuasion, she came to work with us to head up our party business. She's just the person you want when you need lots of rentals for the best price. Her sense of space is amazing -she's also a great cook and a great grandmother!
(Not to mention friend)

Jonnie Wills: So, what does Jonnie NOT do?  Oh ye of many hats. new title: General Manager!!!!!
