This year, J.Kings decided to reinvent it's annual Catering Spectacular
by holding it on  a chartered yacht that cruised around lower Manhattan, rather than the usual catering hall. Guests at the showcase had
the opportunity to enjoy scenic views while learning about products
and ideas hand selected by the J.Kings culinary team to help
build their catering business.

     
In these tough economic times, labor is an expense that is frequently overlooked, but is
a great place to start cutting costs. Guests at the Catering Spectacular discovered how they
could let Restaurant Row Kitchens' chefs do the work for them by preparing fresh sandwiches and wraps for their board room lunches, sandwich and wrap platters, and more. As an added benefit, Restaurant Row Kitchens also offers box lunches made ready to go with a wrap or sandwich, a sweet snack, chips, a piece of fruit and a side salad delivered boxed and ready to serve. Please allow a 2 day lead time on all sandwiches and wraps and a 3 day lead time
on all boxed lunches.

Guests at the spectacular learned how they could save time and labor costs
without sacrificing taste by incorporating Restaurant Row Kitchens' Mac & Cheese
into their catering menu as an action station with mix in's, on their buffet line, as a plated entree or side dish. This Mac & Cheese can be used plain or can have additional ingredients mixed in
to create a signature dish.
