Pangea Re-Opens Focusing on Plant-Forward and
Globally Inspired Cuisine
Hyde Park, NY – The CIA Restaurant Group announces
the re-opening of its popular Pangea restaurant at the Hyde
Park campus of The Culinary Institute of America. The pop-up restaurant
will have a limited run through June 16, 2016. This time, Pangea has popped-up where the former St. Andrew’s Café was located,
adjacent to the Marriott Pavilion.
Pangea showcases a menu that features an array of inspired
dishes that both celebrate and bring together the most diverse
cultural flavors and influences from
around the world. Pangea’s plant-forward offerings
and thoughtful use of meats and seafood reflect today’s desire to
food resources while eating absolutely deliciously. Pangea explores
the world’s interconnected foodways while uniting and transforming them.
believe dining should be a global adventure you share with friends right in your own neighborhood,”
says Waldy Malouf, senior
director of food and beverage operations at The Culinary Institute of America.
“With this second opening, we continue to develop our original plant- and grain-focused
cuisine that emphasizes the flavors and culinary possibilities of cooking with
less animal proteins and more vegetal elements. This allows us to continue to
develop new delicious dishes that also have a positive nutritional value.”
offerings include favorite original menu items such as Pressed Tomato Sushi
Roll with Parsnip “Rice” and such new dishes as Ruby Beet Tartare with Herbed Madeleines; Smoked Haddock with Kale
Salad and Lime Yogurt; Oxtail, Truffle, and Mushroom Pie; and Cast Iron Cornish
New for this
season, patrons can choose items from an à la carte menu.
The pop-up was
conceived to invoke a uniquely exciting dining experience with a shared sense
of adventure. Aligned with the plant-forward theme, the restaurant’s design incorporates reused and
recycled elements. The decor is urban and relies mostly on the use of “found”
objects, artifacts, furnishings, china, and glassware.
Through June 16,
2016, Pangea is open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Lunch service begins March 10 and continues through May 5. Lunch service is
from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pangea is located at The Culinary Institute of America, 1946 Campus Drive
(Route 9), Hyde Park, NY 12538. For more information,
