Kim Huskey, the Food services manager for Google’s East Coast, Canada and Australia locations, said the company recently renovated its Five Borough Bistro cafeteria in April with a lounge area and softer seating for employees to hold meetings and relax during lunch. The cafe features fresh ingredients and food from local farms, vendors and bakeries.
The cafe also expanded its hours from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m whereas previously, it was only open for a few hours in the morning and during lunchtime.
The company also has celebrity chefs such as Mario Batali and Morimoto visit the office, as well New York-area authors.
