Introducing “Flavor By Loews Hotels”: A Culinary Experience Designed To Showcase Hyper-Local Flavor

Loews Hotel 1000 sources the best local food and beverage partners so guests can taste Seattle’s homegrown flavor right on property

Seattle, WA - September 13, 2017

Loews Hotel 1000 introduces Flavor by Loews Hotels, an innovative food and beverage experience serving up the best of Seattle’s local flavor right within the four walls of the hotel. Rolling out nationally this year across the brand, Flavor by Loews Hotels is built on partnerships with artisan food & beverage vendors ranging from bakers to ice cream makers. The indigenous products are showcased on menus across the brand’s portfolio, enabling guests to experience a taste of the destination without ever having to step off property. Loews Hotels is one of the first hotel brands to embrace local partnerships on a national scale, satisfying guests’ desires to immerse themselves in the destinations — bite-by-bite and sip-by-sip.

The Flavor by Loews Hotels program was born at Loews Miami Beach Hotel, which perfectly captures the iconic culture of Miami through its partnerships with an amazing cast of the city’s finest food & beverage purveyors, including Azúcar Ice Cream, Zak the Baker, Miami Club Rum and more. Based on the success of Flavor Miami, all Loews Hotels from coast-to-coast are now introducing the best of their destination’s food and drink artisans, so guests can truly dine like a local.

Loews Hotel 1000 is offering Flavor by Loews Hotels with:

Guests will enjoy smoked salmon from one of Seattle’s first official smokehouses, Jensen’s Old Fashioned Smokehouse. As the main supplier of smoked goods at Pike Place Market for 30 years, family-owned Jensen’s will feature locally enthused dishes such as Wild Garlic & Pepper Keta Smoked Salmon and Wild King Candied Salmon at the hotel’s All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar, and will develop an exclusive recipe only for the hotel.

To accompany the smoked salmon, Grand Central Baking Company will supply special pumpernickel bread for the restaurant’s Smoked Salmon Rillettes. Launched 28 years ago in Pioneer Square, the family-owned bakery uses sustainable Washington State grains and wheat for artisan and specialty breads.

Storyville Coffee has been serving exquisitely roasted fresh coffee in Seattle since 2006 with a mission to end human trafficking. Their four Seattle shops, one of which is across the street from Loews Hotel 1000, demonstrate their passion for beauty and excellence. Using only the highest quality beans, their specialty espresso drinks are served in All Water Seafood & Oyster Bar, Bell Lounge and in the comfort of guest rooms on the in room dining menu.

“We dove into the Seattle market looking for the best local vendors that we could find, with real, artisanal purpose.  We are proud to have been able to partner with Storyville Coffee, Jensen’s Old Fashioned Smoke House and Grand Central Baking Company.  Together, we are able to offer locally unique coffee and dishes that will be served through our outlets and highlighted on our menus.” said Bill Munn, Assistant Director of Food & Beverage, Loews Hotel 1000.

Flavor by Loews Hotels will launch across the brand by the end of 2017.  For more information on Flavor by Loews Hotels visit www.loewshotels.com/flavor.
