NFNY Hotel Management adds more than 200 new employees
NFNY Hotel Management LLC has announced the opening of Rainforest Cafe, the newest attraction in Niagara Falls USA. Elected and local business leaders attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday afternoon. The restaurant opened to the public at 6:30 p.m.
This Rainforest Cafe will be one of just 24 in the entire U.S.
"It's going to be a great tourist attraction for the area, that's much-needed in the Niagara Falls market," site owner Michael DiCienzo said.
Indeed, the introduction of the Rainforest Cafe will provide a brand new adventure for local guests and a unique experience for worldwide visitors and tourists to the Niagara Falls marketplace. Patrons will choose from an assortment of tropical dishes, while the recreated jungle setting - complete with waterfalls, wildlife and vegetation - delivers excitement and fun to adults and children alike. The mushroom bar and a talking tree named Tracy in the dining area also will enhance the jungle-like feel.
The 14,000-square-foot restaurant will seat 238 guests inside, with additional seating for 60 guests on the outdoor patio. The retail village will be located within the restaurant, where guests can purchase a variety of great Rainforest Cafe merchandise and souvenirs.
