Pret a Manger

Park Avenue

400 Park Avenue, 54th and Park
New York, New York 10022

Pret creates handmade, natural food, avoiding the obscure chemicals, additives and preservatives common to so much of the 'prepared' and 'fast' food on the market today. It’s important our sandwiches and salads taste better than everybody else’s. To achieve this, we build a beautiful kitchen in every Pret. Every night we receive good, natural ingredients and our chefs get cracking early in the morning.

We don’t like big food factory/depot/processing places. We make our stuff fresh so we can sell it fresh (it’s old fashioned but works well). We donate our sandwiches to charity instead of keeping them over to sell the next day. Because we make our food by hand in each store throughout the day, you won’t find "shelf life" dates and "display until" messages on our salads and sandwiches. We simply don’t need to sell old food. Our menu is updated all the time, so check back often.

We serve organic milk, oatmeal, coffee, tea, chocolate and popcorn and will continue to add to the list. Organic food is grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides or other toxic junk. Organic farming protects the environment and encourages sustainable farming practices.

Our chicken, turkey, beef and ham are never processed more than they have to be. It's shocking what large producers are permitted to do (you really don't want to know). We buy directly from small cooperatives and family-run farmers like Murray's, Earthbound Farm and Niman Ranch, who share our beliefs. They never give their animals antibiotics or hormones, feed them only a vegetarian diet free of animal by-products and care about them and the environment in which they live.

We source all we can locally, to mention a few:

- Our bread, bagels, muffins & cakes are baked daily in NYC
- Our apple juices hail from the Hudson Valley
- Our yogurt comes from the happy, healthy cows of Ronnybrook Farm in Dutchess County, New York
- Our chicken comes from the family farms of Murray's in Pennsylvania
