Celebrating 35 Years of MANGIA

Mar 15, 2017

Hello from MANGIA!


Dear New Yorkers,

MANGIA is announcing our 35th anniversary!

A family business opened in 1981, MANGIA transformed the New York lunch scene by being one of the first to offer fresh and indeed artisanal ingredients. MANGIA’S  farm-to-table menu is comprised of rustic and delicious Italian fare.

For 35 years, it has been our mission to find and provide New Yorkers with fresh products from Mediterranean and local small farmers furthermore sustainably sourced and meticulously handpicked.

Today, we are taking a trip back in time when we first started, with archived pictures from the early 80s that showcase our genuine passion for gourmet food, artfully presented, in an era that digitalization, technology and food styling were non-existent and files were compiled on negative slides and floppy disks.

Throughout that journey, we would like to share with you our long-term commitment about our products, our services but above all, our customers. MANGIA is privileged to serve thousands of New Yorkers daily. Also, considered the preferred caterer for Fortune 500 companies for 35 years. We take pleasure in knowing we have gained our reputation through word of mouth as NYC’s iconic gourmet catering company. Even until this day we know many of our customers by their first name because they are part of the MANGIA family.

Yours Sincerely,

Sasha Muniak, Founder
