Hyatt Treats Children To New Organic Menu Created By Chef Alice Waters



Hyatt today announced details of its new organic and seasonal children’s menu created exclusively for Hyatt by renowned food pioneer and chef, Alice Waters. The new menu, featuring a three-course organic meal, marks the first hotel project for Waters and complements Hyatt’s groundbreaking “For Kids By Kids” menu, providing children more nutritious, fresh and interactive offerings. The new children’s food and beverage offerings at Hyatt are grounded in the brand’s industry-leading philosophy Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served., promoting healthy people, a healthy planet and healthy communities, and will be offered in all full-service Hyatt hotels and resorts throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean.

Waters, known for her culinary philosophy that maintains cooking should be based on fresh, organic, and seasonal ingredients that are produced sustainably and locally, worked with Hyatt to develop a full organic meal offering including a salad, chicken entrée and a dessert.


“All children deserve to eat real food,” said Alice Waters. “I wanted to do a small, three course meal, within the context of Hyatt’s initiative, that could be sourced exclusively from organic farms across the country. Of course it’s about taste and ripeness and seasonality—but it’s bigger than that, too: it’s about supporting the people who are taking care of the land for our future generations.”


“As Alice Waters is a pioneer, we feel this aligns perfectly with Hyatt’s commitment to being a leader in our industry as it relates to the health of our youngest guests,” said Susan Santiago, vice president, food and beverage, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, North America. “We’ve done extensive research and it shows that kids have a more sophisticated palate than ever, and so working with Alice is a natural fit.”


Alice Waters’ menu at Hyatt features:

* Romaine Lettuce Hearts, Carrot Curls and a Radish Rose with Lemon Vinaigrette for Dipping. “Contrary to prevailing beliefs, getting kids to eat vegetables is not difficult. We simply have to meet their most basic impulses: to eat something that is engaging and that tastes delicious,” said Waters. “The aliveness of textures and colors, as well as the ‘do-it-yourself’ nature of this salad, makes this universally appealing to kids.”

* Grilled Chicken with Pesto Sauce, Roasted Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes. “This is a dish of simple grilled and roasted ingredients, served with a pesto sauce. The trick with something so straightforward is to be confident that the ingredients are the best that they can be.”

* Strawberry and Orange Slices served with a Sweet Juice in a Real Orange Cup. “The goal here is to appeal to kids’ imagination about ‘dessert,’ without feeding them unhealthy, sugary food,” said Waters. “A real orange cup filled with a luxurious amount of perfectly sliced ripe fruit feels special, and the juice is made with a touch of honey to sweeten it.”


To add another layer of fun to mealtime, Hyatt will launch a Flavor Journey online experience in September where kids and parents can learn more about organic foods, the “For Kids By Kids” menu and enjoy games and activities. Guests can use a QR code on the “For Kids By Kids” menu to link to the site.

San Francisco Hyatt Hotels Raise A Toast To Generate Donations For Leukemia & Lymphoma Society



In support of the San Francisco Hotel Council’s city-wide Million Dollar Mission to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, four of the Hyatt hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area are shaking up their resources to get their customers and the local community involved to help reach the lofty goal of $1 million in one month. Participating Hyatt hotels include Hyatt Regency San Francisco; Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf; Grand Hyatt San Francisco and Hyatt Regency Santa Clara.

Hosting a simultaneous happy hour, entitled “Cocktails for a Cure” at each of the hotels’ bars from Sunday, July 22 to Saturday, July 27, Hyatt is inviting locals and guests alike to come celebrate with discounted libations for which 25% of proceeds will be contributed to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. From 5:00-7:00 p.m. each of the hotels’ bars will feature specialty “Cocktails for a Cure.”

Additionally, each of the hotels will encourage their associates to contribute to this fund-raising effort, which is poised to become one of the City’s most impressive (single industry supported) initiatives. This 30-day city-wide crusade will launch on July 1, 2012 and will bring together a diverse range of thousands of San Francisco’s hoteliers in a “Million Dollar Mission.”

Hyatt Hotels of San Francisco and SFMTA Introduce Exclusive San Francisco Passport Package

Located in the city’s most desirable, family-friendly neighborhoods, Hyatt Hotels of San Francisco are teaming up with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to offer visitors a one-of-a-kind experience.

The two entities have just launched the city’s only “Explore San Francisco” package, that features accommodations at any one of Hyatt’s four San Francisco hotels along with two SFMTA passports, which provides unlimited daily use on any one or all of San Francisco’s public transportation vehicles, including the iconic cable cars, historic streetcars, busses, trolleys and any of the other convenient SFMTA modes of transportation. (Note: this is not only the best way to get around San Francisco, but by avoiding the use of a car, visitors will also depreciate their carbon footprint on the city, making this a greener alternative)

Additionally, those booking the “Explore San Francisco” package will also receive the exclusive Hyatt Passport, which is a unique keepsake that chronicles the guests’ journey through the city. Passport holders are also eligible to receive 15% discounts on food and beverage purchases at any one of the hotels’ restaurant (excludes alcohol) as well as $5.00 discounts from some of the city’s most popular attractions, including: Red and White Fleet, Wax Museum, Open Top Sightseeing, Tower Tours and Bike and Roll.

The Hyatt Passport features a long list of some of the Hyatt Concierge Team’s best suggestions for family friendly activities and attractions* and also includes a sheet of fun stickers for passport holders to “stamp” inside the VISA pages once they have visited featured sites.
