BROOKLYN (August 18, 2014) - Barclays Center and Levy Restaurants have extended their partnership with a multi-year deal, building on their acclaimed BrooklynTaste™ food program, which features selections from 55 popular Brooklyn restaurants and vendors. In addition to extending their partnership at the home of the Brooklyn Nets, Levy will become the food and beverage partner for the soon to be re-imagined Nassau Coliseum, scheduled to open at the end of 2016. The recreated venue will deliver a world-class sports, entertainment and retail center to Nassau County and its residents.
“We are thrilled to extend and expand our relationship with Levy Restaurants,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets. “Levy has done an outstanding job at Barclays Center, co-authoring the renowned BrooklynTaste program, and we are looking forward to delivering the same level of service to guests at Nassau Coliseum. We want to thank Legends for being a part of the team that secured the winning bid for Nassau Coliseum. After further consideration, we felt that the synergy created by Levy being involved with both venues was the ultimate way to deliver best-in-class food and beverage programs.”
"We are so proud of what we have created at Barclays Center in collaboration with the venue’s wonderful management team,” said Andy Lansing, President and CEO of Levy Restaurants. “We are looking forward to bringing the same exciting guest experience to Nassau Coliseum."
Levy has been the food and beverage operator for Barclays Center since the venue opened in 2012.
