Chicago: Restaurant Beatrix—A Refreshing Surprise 2014/06/19

Opened June 20, 2013, Restaurant Beatrix, a new concept Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (LEYE) owns and operates in Chicago’s River North Neighborhood. Executive Partner Marc Jacobs’ vision for Beatrix was to create a comfortable meeting place (the living room of River North) for locals/travelers to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between.

p.s. In addition to offering in-house dining, the restaurant also provides “Zoom Service" for the Aloft’s 272 rooms and 400+ rooms in the adjacent Hyatt Place and Fairfield Suites. “Zoom" refers to room service’s quick-service approach, which includes takeout packaging for on-the-go hotel guests with busy schedules. Staff delivers Zoom Service via pathways that lead from the kitchen to the hotel properties.

As Restaurant Beatrix becomes rooted in the River North neighborhood, word is spreading about the newest dining gem to brighten the dining scene. In its brief and well-received history, this concept is redefining hotel and neighborhood dining. After one visit, guests understand that they can find great-tasting food, much of it healthful, in a warm and friendly environment.

甫開張一年的Beatrix,有著寬敞明亮的空間、供應從清晨到深夜不同的餐飲,滿足不同顧客層的需求;背後成功的經營管理,完全改觀我一向不贊同的「一 網打盡」商業行銷手法。這絕對不是間為了分擔固定成本而長時間營業的餐廳,而是非常令人耳目一新的社區餐廳,你會很希望它就開在你家旁:隨時可以進去拿杯 咖啡、喝杯現榨果汁、啜飲一杯酒;坐下來吃個早餐、買個三明治當午餐、睡不著的夜晚,還有間深夜食堂等著你…
