Lessing’s Hospitality Group is the new food service provider at a hospital café

Great River-based Lessing’s Hospitality Group is the new food service provider for Manhasset-based North Shore University Hospital’s Bistro North Café.

In a five-year agreement, Lessing’s will cater and manage food operations for grab-and-go concept that serves about 6,000 employees.

The hospital’s staff will continue overseeing its cafeteria and patient meals at the 756-bed teaching hospital.

“Lessing’s Hospitality Group has a long operating history of outstanding customer service in many of the communities surrounding the hospital and so we’re excited to bring that excellence here,” Jon Sendach, executive director at NSUH, said in a statement.

“Lessing’s is committed to collaborating with our hospital cafeteria to optimize product offerings across both venues to meet the needs of staff and visitors,” he added.

After a $1.1 million renovation, the 2,900-square-foot café now features enhanced technology, a loyalty reward system and menus that support local food sources, among additional upgrades.

“We are thrilled to work with Northwell Health and North Shore University Hospital to bring the vision of Bistro North Café to life,” Michael Lessing, president of Lessing’s Hospitality Group, said in a statement.

“This round-the-clock operation will provide the staff and visitors of North Shore University Hospital with healthy and high-end offerings,” he added.

An independent, family-owned business, Lessing’s brings more than 130 years of experience to the partnership, providing dining and catering services for health care, educational and business entities in the northeast and Florida.
