Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option. The mobility of the truck allows for the hotel to have a smaller scale menu and adapt to guests’ changing tastes.

The Gastro Truck offers a variety of signature sandwiches, with highlights including the Short Dip featuring braised short rib, smoked provolone, crispy shallot, and horseradish spread and the CCBLT, a twist on the BLT featuring a fresh crab cake and old bay mayo. The menu can also be completely customized to meet groups’ varied needs.

The Hoxton, Portland officially opened its doors on November 12. The much anticipated opening was the second U.S location for the Hoxton brand. The Hoxton, based in London is planning two additional openings in the United States later in 2019—The Hoxton Chicago and The Hoxton Downtown L.A. The Hoxton Portland, located in historic Old Town Chinatown in a building dating back to 1906, features 119 rooms and three restaurants including a cocktail bar.

 

The Rose Hotel Chicago O’Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton officially opened this holiday season on November 15 while honoring veteran Elizabeth O’Byrne in conjunction with Veterans Day. O’Byrne and her family received the first guest special experience at the hotel’s grand opening event.
