Griffith was raised in Bedford, New York, the daughter of actor/producer Peter Griffith and model/actress Nanita Greene. Her younger brother is Clay Griffith, who became a production designer and set decorator. She is the half-sister of actress Melanie Griffith, daughter of their father's first wife. In the early 1970s, she moved with her family to Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands. Her parents separated in 1976. Griffith attended a boarding school in Maryland, graduating in 1979, and went on to spend two years at the University of Tennessee where she became interested in acting and dropped out in 1987.
Griffith married Mark Daley on September 17, 2011. He is the president of Ralph Lauren's Asia Division.
After college, Griffith worked in Hollywood and New York for the next 12 years. Her acting credits include The Guiding Light, The Good Mother (1988); Fast Food (1989); The First Power (1990); The Finest Hour (1991); All Tied Up (1993); 21 Jump Street; Lifetime's Their Second Chance, and the miniseries Ruby Ridge: An American Tragedy. She was also a regular on the ABC drama series The Monroes (1995).
Griffith was the first female graduate of the California Sushi Academy and one of the world’s first certified female sushi chefs. She worked as the featured sushi chef at Tsunami’s in Beverly Hills. She also was a partner and chef at Rika’s on Sunset, a sushi restaurant on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Griffith developed a style of sushi without raw fish. This led to a publishing deal for her cookbook Sushi American Style, which was published by Clarkson Potter in August 2004.
Griffith starred as the chef/host on the recurring Cooking with D.I.Y. series and Celebrity Hobbies on the D.I.Y. Network.
In 2006, Griffith released a CD titled Red, on the Miura label, that features Western dance tunes. The title Red is her nickname, in honor of her maternal grandfather, James "Red" Greene.
