How to get your life together at the press conference – Pioneers
Pioneers was a legendary culinary institution in New York City for over 60 years.
We are so honored and grateful to be able to share the stories and memories of our guests and the people who work at Pioneers.
Below, we highlight some of the highlights and share some of their favorite recipes.
The story of the Pioneers Restaurant, New York.
This is a photo taken by a reporter from the Pioneer Press, the newspaper that covered the Pioneors.
In 1965, the owners of the restaurant, George G. & Lucille Riesenfeld, moved the restaurant to a new location in Manhattan.
The new location would house the restaurant’s now-iconic dining room and the press box, as well as the restaurant itself.
The Pioneers became one of the most popular dining establishments in New City.
They served their guests fresh and traditional fare from all over the world.
In 1968, a year after opening, the restaurant moved to a much larger building.
It was then renovated into the press bar, which featured a rotating selection of award-winning, award-nominated restaurants.
At the time, the press boxes were not the only dining room in the restaurant.
The Pioneers also had a private dining room that served its own food.
During the 1960s, George & Lucile Riesengolds became involved in a partnership with The New York Times.
During the years that followed, The Times continued to report on the restaurant and it was eventually purchased by The Washington Post in 1979.
“Pioneers Restaurant: Inside the Golden Age of Food” is an important piece of the history of the diner.
