Amazing Food Options on the National Mall
July 20, 2015 | News & Updates, Uncategorized
We have exciting news to share from the Washington, DC area: over the course of the last several months, our culinarians in the Operations Division, led by Chef Russell Baratz, have developed and executed a new series of menus for our nine kiosks on the National Mall. What is extraordinary about this effort is that six of the nine kiosk menus feature specialties that are unique to each of their locations (in addition to temporary LTOs), and throughout the system (in addition to the tried-and-true items that always will be popular) we have incorporated a wide variety of “healthy” foods: our FitPicks menu (where a main dish and a side will net at under 600 calories); lean proteins; vegetarian, vegan and kosher items; and gluten-free selections. The National Park Service is thrilled with our new program, and we have earned some nice media coverage: Below you’ll see a link to a segment from Good Morning Washington starring Chef Russell, and we also were featured on our local Fox affiliate.
Not the least of our excitement centers around our new mobile-responsive website that offers park visitors the opportunity to see what’s available at the kiosks BEFORE they even venture onto the Mall. Browse the site and see what we’re offering; we hope we can tempt you to come visit!
