AMP3 adds Milk Street Cafe to Client Roster
We are very excited to announce that we will be handling the opening of Milk Street Cafe–a 23,000 square foot Food Hall set to open at 40 Wall Street in the Trump Building late this Spring.
This will be the second Milk Street Cafe location, the first being a small retail and large catering outpost that was founded in 1981, and is located in the Financial District of Boston, MA.
Unlike its Boston space, the new Wall Street destination will feature multiple gourmet food stations created by Executive Chef, Steven Mettle. Everything will be prepared fresh on-site daily, using top quality ingredients, and the most innovative equipment—all to provide the best customer experience possible.
We gave The New York Times the initial scoop on this new venture, which you can read up on, here.
AMP3 will be hosting a private preview of the restaurant before it’s public opening which is set for June, 2011.
