SD26 Opens in New York Using Electrolux Professional Products Exclusively

SD26, located in Madison Square Park, NY held its grand opening on September 15. The owners – father and daughter team Tony and Marisa May - previously owned San Domenico NY, located on Central Park South. San Domenico closed down last year, and was rebranded with the opening of SD26 this year. Tony May’s daughter will now take over the business.

With this new restaurant, comes brand new Electrolux equipment. SD26 has three cooking areas for their nouveau Italian gourmet cuisine: display cooking open to the main dining room with views from the mezzanine level, bar cooking line that services the bar and lounge, and on the cellar level is a banquet cooking/restaurant prep and bakery. Installed in the main kitchen is an Electrolux air-o-chill Blast Chiller, an S90 island suite, air-o-steam Combi Oven and an air-o-convect Hybrid Convection Oven. Installed at the cellar level is another S90 lineup.

“Tony May and Chef Odette scrutinized the market place and insisted that Electrolux cooking equipment be used exclusively throughout the establishment. Their expectations have been met. They are easily meeting the rigorous demand created by the many a la carte and banquet dishes that their very busy establishment requires,” said Lenny Teller, Design and Project Manager at Electrolux Authorized Dealer E. Friedman Associates. “I am proud to have the vast product line of Electrolux on display at New York's newest and most beautiful restaurant to be built in a very long time.”
