If you’ve ever wanted to check into a top-notch hotel and have dinner or even room service whipped up by a celebrity chef, well, you can! Here are five hotels with famous chefs in the kitchen.
David Burke Kitchen, The James Hotel, New York.
David Burke has a classical French and fine dining culinary background yet is widely known for rather playful riffs on familiar food. After all, Burke created and trademarked Pastrami Salmon! At The James New York, the David Burke Kitchen features short ribs, cavatelli and pretzel crab cakes on the dinner menu. Breakfast in Bed by David Burke is also offered, but don’t count on him delivering it.
Nobu, The Nobu Hotel, Las Vegas.
A boutique hotel within a hotel, the Nobu Hotel is located within Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. One of the perks of staying at the Nobu Hotel is priority, VIP access to the Nobu restaurant. Nobu showcases the culinary prowess of world-renowned chef, Nobu Matsuhisa. Considered to be without peer for his original Japanese fusion cuisine, Nobu not only has a restaurant empire, but impressively, also his own boutique hotels. Nobu signature specialties include tiradito, black cod miso, yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, king crab ceviche and Kobe beef tacos.
Locanda Verde, Greenwich Hotel, New York.
The Greenwich Hotel, owned by Robert De Niro features Locanda Verde by Andrew Carmellini, a casual Italian taverna that is easy to hang out in for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s Italian comfort food, tail to snout, with modern influences and a relaxed, neighborhood vibe.
Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill, The Savoy Hotel, London.
The Savoy Hotel in London is one of the world’s legendary hotels. The Savoy Grill enjoyed renown for decades as one of London’s smartest restaurants. However, in recent times the glory days were in the rear vision mirror, and sadly the Savoy Grill was past its prime. A recent complete restoration and new partnership with Gordon Ramsay has changed that. Now known as Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill, it features traditional pre and post theatre dining, a remarkable Rothschild wine dinner and an extraordinary kitchen table dining experience, right in the working kitchen.
