Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, a Starwood Hotels & Resorts brand, has introduced a new food and beverage program called Paired that is sure to make foodies happy.
The new lobby bar experience, available at Sheraton properties worldwide, features artisanal small plates and bar snacks served alongside premium wines and local craft beers, including non-traditional pairings such as Banana Bread Peanut Butter Sandwich with Tawny Port and La Quercia Smoked Prosciutto with Scottish ale.
Sheraton Selects wines (wines rated higher than 85 points by Wine Spectator) are featured in the Paired program. Additional global cuisine with local influences include: Seared Sesame Salmon with Asian slaw, paired with a Pinot Noir or a Pale Ale; Goat Cheese Brulee with Fig Jam and Cranberry Focaccia, paired with Merlot or Brown Ale; Marinated Roasted Olives with Grilled Lemon and Red Chili, paired with Shiraz or Bourbon Barrel-aged ale; and Cantonese Style Salt & Pepper Chicken Wings, paired with Riesling or IPA.
“Sheraton guests crave new and personalized experiences, and when they travel, they look to create these opportunities,” said Dave Marr, global brand leader of Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, via a release. “By building on the equity we have in wine, we’re adding local craft beers and introducing fun and exciting food pairings, which will offer our guests enriching and memorable culinary moments in our hotels.”
Participating Sheraton properties will also host educational presentations by local craft breweries or sommeliers as part of the program, while Sheraton hotel staff will complete Treasury Wine Estates’ Wine Training & Education modules to stay up to date on Sheraton Selects offerings. Sheraton properties around the world will also host Paired celebrations in the coming months to introduce the concept to guests.
“The Paired menu concept delights the palate and invites exploration,” said Achim Lenders, vice president of Starwood global food and beverage. “Knowing the right beverages can enhance any food, our team carefully handpicked premium wines and craft beers to complement each unique small plate and accentuate its rich flavors.”
Paired is the latest of many initiatives underway for Sheraton 2020, an all-encompassing plan designed to solidify Sheraton as a leading global hotel brand.
