Christina Tenedios on the Opening of New Restaurant Metro Marché in NYC

January 25, 2023

NEW YORK – Greek restaurant owner Steve Tenedios (of Kyma Restaurants, Café Metro- Manhattan’s longstanding brand for lunch and catering- and Fresh & Co) has recently opened a new restaurant with his daughter Christina Tenedios, Metro Marché, located at 30 West 57th Street in Manhattan, along ‘Billionaire’s Row’ as 57th Street is known for its prestigious art galleries, restaurants, and high-end shops.

Christina Tenedios spoke with The National Herald about Metro Marché: “I grew up in the restaurant business with my father [Steve Tenedios], learning by experience and watching him. For most of my adult life, I have been working in the family business. It was time for me to try an idea that had a more modern vibe with a relaxed feel.”

“I always knew I wanted to do something separate from Café Metro and Fresh & Co, and while it’s still under the same ownership, Metro Marché has a relaxing and home style ambiance inviting our customers to escape for a few minutes from their busy days and enjoy delicious food,” she continued. “We offer casual-style dining and catering from popular breakfast staples, salads, and soups to a variety of sandwiches and daily market table specials. Also, as this is the first location for Metro Marché, I envision opening more locations in NYC in the coming years.”
