Boudin Jalapeno pizza

The MCM Eleganté Hotel is hoping a new concept will entice guests to order pizza in-house and also capitalize on sales opportunities outside the hotel.

Itza Pizza, which opened Saturday, April 1, is serving hotel guests, dine-in customers, and delivering to a whole new market through the Waitr app.

Located inside Hemmingway’s Café, Itza Pizza sold over 300 pizzas in its first week, said Matt Peterson, food and beverage director at the MCM Eleganté.

The concept is the brainchild of hotel GM Steve McGaha.

This year’s honorees are Iris and Jerry Nathan.

It’s been 33 years and counting, but rest assured the annual “Taste of the Triangle” is far from stale. In fact, this year’s event sponsored by the Sabine Area Restaurant Association will feature a few fresh faces along with the time-honored traditions associated with the area’s premiere foodie event.
