We, the people of Cafeteria, love food; but if there is one thing we love more than that, it is that food brings people together. In 1997, three New York City entrepreneurs came up with a relatively ingenious idea. Their concept was equally bold as it was avant-garde. In a nutshell, they envisioned a place that would combine the elements of an exceptionally well prepared American comfort cuisine, a modern diner setting, great ambiance, and to have it all be available to everyone 24 hours a day. In June of 1998 that vision became a smashingly successful reality opening its doors in Manhattan's Chelsea district. Instantly transcending the ranks of a newbie on the block and becoming a staple household name in America's largest city. The following years would see Cafeteria steadily rising as a premier comfort dining destination and garnering global attention. Cafeteria has grown from restaurant and lounge to a recognized global brand and destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike.
