MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Hewing Hotel in Minneapolis has found a way to keep its kitchen open during the state’s four-week hold on indoor dining. The destination hotel is ramping up room service, turning some guest rooms into private dining areas.
Beginning this week, the hotel will be offering the luxury dining experience. Here’s how it works: Up to four people will be able to rent a hotel room for three hours, and they’ll be able to buy a seven-course tasting menu that’ll change every week.READ MORE: Grandma, 102, Attends Both Grandsons' Football Game After Recovering From COVID
The food will arrive at the room’s door, with the guests picking it up themselves. When finished with a course, the guests will place their plates outside, to be picked up by staff before the next dish in the tasting menu is served.READ MORE: Fourth Stimulus Check: Will You See Another Relief Payment Soon?
“We’re trying to continue to do what we love best,” said Nyle Flynn, the hotel’s executive chef. “And because we’re a large hotel, we’ve been affected just like the mom-and-pop restaurants.”
Flynn says he hasn’t heard of any other hotels trying this room service idea to keep the kitchens operating, but he hopes that others follow suit and find success.MORE NEWS: Pottery Studio In Hutchinson Nationally Recognized For COVID Comeback Story
