Mount Sinai Roosevelt patient dining has been using cook-chill food produced at St Luke's Roosevelt next door, with trays prepared on patient units using Burlodge carts while its production kitchen undergoes a renovation slated to be completed in November. It then plans to switch to cook-serve using a POD system in the kitchen and Morrison’s Catering to You spoken menu platform with iPad-based ordering beginning in December.
On the retail side, the hospital just completed a total renovation of its Café 58 venue into a Starbucks/Gift Store, which opened on Aug. 15. The main café is currently undergoing a total renovation and plans call for it to reopen in November 2015. The overhaul includes the addition of a full Japanese concept as well as a Chop House Grill concept among many traditional favorites.
