The Glazier Group Removes Tomatoes from Menus Nationwide

Nationally Recognized Hospitality Group Reacts to FDA Warnings

NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Glazier Group, a Manhattan-based hospitality group best known for Strip House properties across the country and in Puerto Rico, has taken a preemptive strike in response to the FDA's warnings regarding salmonella infestation in tomatoes. Effective yesterday, all raw red plum, beefsteak and Roma tomatoes have been removed from menus at each of the group's properties, including two major catering and event facilities in New York (Bridgewaters and Twenty Four Fifth) and a booming off-site catering business, including the groups' newest venture, Bridgewaters To Go, which offers an organic menu and environmentally sustainable practices in off-site catering.

"Given the parameters of the recall laid out by the FDA, we are confident that we could continue using certain types of tomatoes without endangering our customers," said Mathew Glazier, president of The Glazier Group. "With that said, our commitment to the thousands of patrons that dine with us each day across the country is paramount to our way of doing business, and at this time, we feel it most prudent to remove all raw tomatoes from our menus."

The Glazier Group has confirmed that all tomatoes sourced for its properties currently come from states that "have not been associated with this outbreak" as worded on the FDA website. Given the growth of the "unsafe" list of states yesterday the group has chosen to act in this manner.

With two steakhouse brands in its ownership, this change will mean diners will go without several signature dishes. At Strip House, a classic salad of vine ripened tomatoes, red onion, sliced cucumber, sweet basil and tomato water vinaigrette will temporarily be unavailable. And at Michael Jordan's The Steakhouse N.Y.C., an iconic New York steakhouse overlooking Grand Central Terminal, diners will go without the key element of tomatoes in one of the most quintessential items on any steakhouse menu -- the iceberg wedge. For now, the salad will only include blue cheese crumbles and crispy bacon.

Until sufficient proof comes from the FDA that the risk of food-borne illness is gone from tomato crops nationwide, The Glazier Group will stay firm in its commitment to protect consumers from any risk. "We're hoping this passes quickly, especially given we are entering the peak season for diner's to enjoy tomatoes," said Glazier.

Located in New York City, The Glazier Group is one of the country's preeminent hospitality companies, with diverse restaurants, event spaces and catering services throughout the US and in Puerto Rico. Under the direction of Peter, Penny and Mathew Glazier (a husband, wife and son team) the group's many properties are acclaimed for devotion to superiority not only in cuisine, but in service, aesthetics and all other elements of patrons' experiences. Perhaps best known for its Strip House brand, which now boasts nine locations nationwide including NYC and Las Vegas, The Glazier Group also offers full-service event venues in New York City with Bridgewaters and Twenty Four Fifth and in New Jersey at The Westminster Hotel and in Key West at The Reach. In 2008, the group launched Bridgewaters To Go, an off-premise catering service devoted to organic cuisine and sustainability in its practices.
