Every day at Mangia is a balance of honoring the traditional elements of our business while innovating our position as the NY’s leading catering and favorite lunch retailer.

One area where we were long overdue an update was our iconic red bistro Mangia bag, which has remained unchanged for almost 40 years.

We are pleased to announce that we have replaced our bags with a 100% recyclable, and a sustainably sourced materials that are 100% compostable.

Our aim is to reduce the number of take-out bags and urge our customers to choose reusable ones instead, like our new Mangia tote bag made by 100% organic cotton.


‘Always iconic, now more sustainable.’
