Fast on the heels of opening its new juice program and espresso counter, Newbury Street Café announced it is has struck a deal with the Buffalo Sabres and Delaware North to offer its signature salads and spicy quinoa bowls at select concession areas on the 100- and 200-levels at First Niagara Center.
The deal marks a welcome healthy departure from the less virtuous new menu offerings announced by the arena earlier this month, which include fried-chicken-and-waffle sandwiches, beef on weck macaroni and cheese, and pork belly-topped hot dogs, among other indulgent fare.
Newbury Street owner Paul Tsouflidis gives the hockey franchise credit for giving fans a greater range of dining options.
“The Sabres are setting a precedence in all arenas with this type of food offering,” he said in a Facebook post.
Newbury Street is a local healthy fast-food restaurant known for its build-your-own salads, brown rice bowls, quinoa bowls, wraps, and soups. Six Newbury Street menu items debuted at First Niagara Center at the October 22 game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The arena will offer Newbury Street salads and bowls at Sabres games through the end of the hockey season.
