Featured Event: TelevisaUnivision Upfront at Pier 36



By Great Performances

On May 16, we were thrilled to be the catering partners for TelevisaUnivision’s upfront at Pier 36 (Basketball City). Their team was incredible to work with and it was a fun challenge to design a menu that matched their creativity, vision, and theme “Grow with Us.”

Our custom menu included items from all over the Latin diaspora, and we were able to include The Sylvia Center, who they had featured in a segment in March. We also customized vessels and food sizes to match the branded items they provided, including empanada sleeves and stirrers.

We also worked with La Newyorkina, a local Latin vendor we partner with regularly and feature as part of our People’s Kitchen program.
