The Washington Business Journal wrote a story about Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater debuting its Catwalk Cafe, which Ridgewells is operating. See the article below.
Arena Stage debuts Catwalk Cafe
The restaurant at Arena Stage’s new facility on the Southwest Waterfront has been rechristened Catwalk Cafe.
The concessions service, formerly called Next Stage by Jose Andres, had to make a shift because Ridgewells Catering and Jose Andres’ ThinkFoodGroup parted ways on their catering company; the joint venture formerly operated the cafe. Now Ridgewells Catering has taken charge of Catwalk.
Although the name is different, some things sound similar – for example, the cafe’s cuisine will be inspired by plays that Arena Stage is performing. It will serve quick bites, salads, soups and entrees, and will begin operating 2.5 hours before a show starts. Concessions, a separate stand that serves lighter fare, will remain open after the show.
