Arc Cardinal, a North American leading tabletop supplier to the hospitality industry, announced its release of new products at the 2019 National Restaurant Association (NRA) show.

New products will be offered across all categories of dinnerware, glassware and flatware. “As we collaborate with mixologists and chefs, we aim to create products that are both trendy and add value to bars and restaurants,” says Vice President of Marketing Nichole Vanderhoof. “One collection that we’re really excited about is Evolutions. It’s extremely versatile and can be seen anywhere from casual dining to buffets.” Evolutions, made of Opal and Fully Tempered Glass, is offered in three colors: white, granite and black. There is also a variety of shapes that are seen in the collection.

To continue staying on trend, Arc Cardinal announces two new additions to flatware: Kya Black and the Marble Steak Knife. A bold take on the already popular Kya collection, this explosive black mirror finish offers a modern style to all tablescapes and is scratch resistant. Marble, a key material used to inspire, embodies luxury, elegance and classicism. This knife is perfect for steakhouses with flair.

As bars continue to evolve their menus to include more creative style cocktails, it is important to find glassware that coincides with those changes. Introducing the Vina Cocktail– a glass that can be used in hotels, cocktail bars and restaurants. Its best uses are with gin based cocktails, other spirit forward cocktails and sangria.

The Beer Premium collection adds an elevated design element to the everyday bar. With a focus on the craft beer segment, which has seen very steady growth, this collection is a blend of existing and new shapes. Featuring sheer rims and well-designed bowls, these three glasses create the ideal craft beer experience.

Arcoroc, Arc Cardinal’s brand that is most known for barware, introduces additions to the Mix collection. This collection, designed to withstand the rigor of high volume restaurants and bars while still focusing on the craft, was created by Chris Adams, whose experience establishing some of the worlds most acclaimed bar programs has been conducive for this collaboration. Additions include the Ellis Bar Knife, Ellis Sharpening Stone and Muddler. “Working with Chris is an ideal partnership,” explains Vanderhoof. “His experience building some of the world’s best bar programs makes him an amazing asset to our team.”
