Notable Chefs, Popular Restaurants, Dynamic Cuisine

Bringing the bounty of the city and its flavors from around the world into the cafés we operate is essential. Like all New Yorkers, we explore neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs and celebrate the abundance of talent and tastes. We flock to festivals, get on-line for pop-ups, and embrace trends in a New York minute!

People’s Kitchen taps into the widest variety of palates through our partnerships with some of the most interesting organizations and culinary talent – and we bring them to you to explore and enjoy. Now more than ever, the restaurant community needs our support. Small entrepreneurs, with great dreams and skills, are eager to introduce you to their products. Our outreach in the Bronx alone has uncovered a plethora of deliciousness we want to share with you.

We are excited to partner with Wollman Rink NYC to bring some of New York’s finest culinary talent right to the Wollman Cafe. Guest Chefs and Restaurants will appear periodically in the Wollman Cafe complete with Special Menu Items, Chef Appearances, Book Signings, and more!

Upcoming Guest Restaurant Appearance (Saturday 6/10 & Sunday 6/11)
