Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
There is now a Seattle Airport hotel able to make the claim that its restaurant may be the newest, hippest dining spot in the city. With the comprehensive transformation of Aquaterra restaurant, the Seattle Airport Marriott has raised the bar far above the norm.
Featuring sleek open spaces and modern décor, one of the hottest new Seattle airport restaurants sports a dramatic new look, feel and menu. The centerpiece of the newly revamped eatery is a large communal table which seats 14 to 16 people, the latest trend in chic, casual restaurants. Two smaller tables seating five people each and two private dining rooms with 12 and 24 person occupancies allow larger groups to dine and celebrate special occasions intimately.
“We want Aquaterra to be the new gathering place in Seattle,” said Drew Hayden, director of the Seattle airport hotel’s operations. “In an area where there are a lot of chain restaurants, Aquaterra at the Seattle Airport Marriott offers an unparalleled experience.”
The menu at the remodeled SeaTac hotel restaurant reflects more sustainable seafood and local Pacific Northwest ingredients, according to Chef James Neighbor. He said fine dining in Seattle has been taken up a notch with the introduction of Marriott’s “Future Fish” program which works with local produce vendors to help reduce the restaurant’s carbon footprint.
“‘Freshness embraced’ is the philosophy of our kitchen,” Neighbor, who has been with Marriott for 18 years, said. “Our focus is on fresh local items prepared simply, seasoned correctly and not over-sauced.”
Signature items now include Cascioppo Bros. chorizo and clams and Cedar Plank wild salmon. The Seattle seafood restaurant also features condiments like their signature tartar sauce made in-house.
The American grill will continue to serve its more casual food items such as burgers in the bar or great room areas.
Aquaterra is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dress is casual, and reservations are recommended for larger parties that want to sit at the communal tables. For information, call 206-241-2000 or visit http://www.marriott.com/SEAWA.
