NEW YORK , Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Food & Shops at LaGuardia Airport announced today that Angelina's Metro Market, a new gourmet market concept, opened its first location in the Central Terminal Building.

Developed and managed by MAR AIR Foods, which operates franchises as well as its own brands in several major airports, Angelina's Metro Market is an upscale Manhattan-style gourmet market that features organic and natural foods. While the focus is healthy, the food is strong on flavor and creativity. Travelers can choose from an array of freshly prepared Barilla(R) pastas and sauces, such as Pomodoro and Basil Pesto Sauce , as well as crisp, organic and natural greens with 60 toppings, that allow customers to create customized salads.

Fresh pastries, New York style bagels, muffins and scones are delivered daily and can be warmed in seconds, using high-tech ovens. Also available at the Market are imported and domestic yogurts, cheeses, spreads, deli meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, International preparations and more. An amazing array of over 120 beverages is available and features organic, ethnic, energy and healthy options. Custom packaging has been created to allow LaGuardia's busy, food savvy travelers the ability to take food with them on board the plane.

A keen sense of design and thought went into the Market, giving it a Manhattan-style food emporium feel with an emphasis on quality offerings. A strong customer service-training program emphasizes a sincere approach to service, with employees empowered to give the customer what they want.

MAR AIR Foods will also open Angelina's Panini Bar post-security at Gates B, later this month. This satellite of Metro Market will offer a selection of hot, oven-toasted and grilled panini creations.
