Hilton Asheville Awarded Top Americas Food And Beverage Honor
ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park has been recognized with the highest annual food and beverage award for 2016 by Hilton Hotels & Resorts. The property concluded the year with the highest overall guest service scores in the areas of overall breakfast experience, overall restaurant lunch/dinner experience and overall in-room dining/room service experience, out of 281 hotels in the Americas region.
Known for its southern-inspired cuisine, the hotel partners with numerous local vendors to create menus for its signature restaurant, Roux, as well as its catering and banquet services. Executive Chef Randy Dunn changes the menus seasonally to highlight locally-sourced items such as Hickory Nut Gap Farms pork tenderloin with citrus rosemary butter, Three Graces Dairy and Cane Creek Creamery local charcuterie board, and Sunburst Farms trout with toasted almond pesto. The weekend brunch features breads from Annie's Bakery, jams from Claire's ABC Gourmet Preserves, grits from Lakeside Mills and Lake Lure honey. The LEED Silver-Certified property also features many sustainable practices, while utilizing Danny's Dumpster for composting wastes and Blue Ridge Bio Fuel for recycling cooking oils.

"Our food and beverage team's passion for food and customer service is key to our success and it is wonderful for them to receive the recognition."
