A Legacy of Remarkable Hospitality

Over 125 years ago, the Lessing's family embarked on their journey in the food service industry. What began as a handful of coffee shops in Manhattan, quickly grew into a full-service hospitality business.

Some may call it LUCK (there is some Irish in our veins)... but we like to think it's our way of doing business -- always with a handshake and a smile.
