Dulles, VA (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
The Washington Dulles Airport Marriott Hotel has launched a new restaurant, Aviate Bar and Grill, as a part of the hotel’s recently completed $9.3 million renovation.
The new restaurant offers an elegant yet casual dining option not only for hotel guests, but is also convenient for those who need to meet clients for lunch or dinner, are picking up friends or family, or have a lengthy layover to enjoy delectable dining away from the airport. The Washington Dulles Airport Marriott is the closest hotel to the airport, which is less than five minutes away. A complimentary hotel shuttle provides easy access to the Washington Dulles Airport.
In the dining room with rich wood tones, amber glass forms and pops of color that create a warm and welcoming space, Executive Chef Tracy McMillan offers a menu that’s just as comforting as the surroundings. Chef McMillan has worked in the kitchens of four DC-area Marriott Hotels and earned an ACE Award for culinary excellence for her work at this Dulles Airport Hotel. The chef's Blue Corn Crusted Crab Cakes with Roasted Yellow Pepper Aioli is a five-time winner for “best appetizer” in a community charity competition.
Chef McMillan’s New American cuisine relies on local flavors and influences for inspiration. She takes classic favorites like buttermilk fried chicken salad, crab cakes, blackened shrimp with cheddar chive grits, and cowboy bone-in rib eye steak and adds her own creative twist.
One of the newest Dulles restaurants, the Aviate Bar and Grill also offers a complete wine, beer and cocktail menu. Aviate is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. To book a reservation call: 1-703-471-9500.
