Go beyond “Nutrition 101” when the culinary team of New York's Michelin-starred Rouge Tomate restaurant visits Washington for a special market-style brunch at the Blue Duck Tavern on June 21.
Park Hyatt Hotel Executive Chef Sebastien Archambault and Pastry Chef Naomi Gallego will host Rouge Tomate Executive Chef Jeremy Bearman and Culinary Nutritionist Kristy Del Coro to produce this one-time event.
Based on the original Rouge Tomate in Belgium, the Manhattan restaurant enhances nutritional quality of meals certified as meeting SPE ("Health Through Food" in Latin) standards.
Appropriate for the country where SPA (“Health Through Water”) was born in Roman times, SPE is going mainstream in the USA. Restaurants as well as Celebrity Cruises feature SPE-certified menus.
Spread on the fountain terrace of Blue Duck Tavern, the June 21 brunch will offer food for thought as well as pleasure.
Make the weekend complete by staying in the Park Hyatt spa-inspired rooms. Designed by Tony Chi, the Vista deluxe rooms feature a walk-in shower walled with polished stone. Multiple shower heads produce a virtual massage. Cap the experience with an in-room massage, pre-booked through the concierge.
Hotel guests can work out at the fitness center, which has a small pool, and run in Rock Creek Park.
Cost of the June 21 Masters of Food & Wine brunch is $75, inclusive of tax & gratuity. Reservations are online at www.mastersfoodandwine.com
Overnight accommodations can be reserved by calling 202/789-1239. A deluxe Vista room with king bed costs $299 plus tax for two persons. Or stay in the Made in the USA Suite and enjoy American art at the nearby Phillips Collection.
