Who's News in Catering for February 4, 2023

Hott Off the Presses

Metro Marché, under the same ownership as Café Metro (Manhattan’s longest and oldest brand for lunch & catering) and Fresh & Co, announces the opening of their newest restaurant concept, located at 30 W. 57th Street, NYC. 57th Street is known for its prestigious art galleries, restaurants & high-end shops, and now Metro Marché has landed in a prime location on “Billionaire’s Row.”  Metro Marché’s ambiance is that of a modern vibe met with an innovative menu, offering casual-style dining and catering. The restaurant serves up everyone’s favorites from popular breakfast staples, salads, and soups to a variety of sandwiches and daily market table specials.  If dining-in, the seating area is sleek and perfect for socializing or enjoying a quiet meal. Also great for a quick grab & go during a NYC lunch break.  Metro Marché offers a catering menu that is perfect for working lunches, events, and meetings – with an array of freshly made breakfast & sandwich platters, salads, market entrees, desserts and more, there is something for everyone in your group. Vegetarian, vegan & gluten-free options are also available.   


General Mills Foodservice, which partners with restaurants to provide back-of-house products, recipe inspiration and culinary support, has created the  Biskies Contest in conjunction with the introduction of Pillsbury’s newly improved biscuits. Pillsbury Southern Style Unbaked Biscuits, a staple on menus for decades, are now even better to give restaurants a low-labor way to bake up light and fluffy biscuits with superior taste and consistent quality. The entries for The Biskies Contest will be reviewed by General Mills Foodservice’s team of culinary professionals, Chefs of the Mills, who will select three Category Finalists for each recipe category.  The finalists will then be featured on General Mill Foodservice’s website and social media channels in April for a public vote to determine the final Grand Prize and Runner-Up Winners. Final winners will be announced on May 17, 2023.
