is unveiling a pair of new eateries in the coming months. One of them, a clean-living-focused outfit called the Healthy Epicurean
, is still in the development stage. But Ristorante del Lago
, the Italian replacement for Charles Court, is drawing nearer toward public access.
"A new exhibition kitchen gives diners a glimpse into the action and a unique Salumi and Formaggio aging room," reads a statement to the Indy
from the hotel, which will also replace the West Lobby Bar with Bar del Lago.
"Some unique and special features include: a Bonnet Rotisserie, a Parma Crown Anniversary Slicer (Specially designed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma) and a wood-burning oven for pizzas add to the panache of the restaurant. Exquisite Sambonet dessert trolleys will display the luscious creations from our pastry team."
Designed by Adam Tihany
— who also designed the hotel's Summit restaurant, not to mention
Thomas Keller's Per Se
, and The Bocuse Restaurant
at the Culinary Institute of America — del Lago will preview its menu at four dinners at Summit
in the coming months, prior to its full opening later this year. Tickets are $95, including wine pairings, with details on three below:
