Food and beverage are some of the best—and most enjoyable—ways to get to know a place, but traveling for business doesn’t always allow for exploration outside the hotel meeting room. Flavor by Loews Hotels partners with local restaurants, breweries and artisans to bring their goods to guests and attendees.
 

LOEWS PHILADELPHIA HOTEL

La Colombe: Todd Carmichael and JP Iberti founded La Colombe on a simple premise: America Deserves Better Coffee. The first location opened in Rittenhouse Square in 1994.

Metropolitan Bakery makes its breads with all-natural starter and is a Philadelphia institution.

 

LOEWS REGENCY NEW YORK

Bon Vivant: Each petit four looks like a work of art. The recipe uses eggs from pasture-raised New York farms and buttercream flavored intensely with lavender buds, vanilla beans or lemon curd.

Brooklyn Gin: Made closely in the Hudson Valley, this handcrafted small-batch gin is good enough to drink on its own. Everything is made during a three-day process in one Christian Carl pot.

Olivella Bread: NYC’s resident pizza king is Naples, Italy-born Salvatore Olivella, who made a name for himself consulting with top NYC pizza spots. You can try two exclusive pizzas here: Truffle and Diavolo, both made with a charcoal crust.

Mah-Ze-Dahr: The name of this West Village bakery translates from Urdu to describe the essence, flavor and magic of food. The brown butter blondies and brioche doughnuts have become social media sensations in their own right.

The hotel also recently partnered with Sigmund’s Pretzels, Ess-aBagel and William Greenberg Desserts.

 

ALL ABOUT BOURBON

Bank & Bourbon at Loews Philadelphia Hotel features a barrel-aging program for house-aged liquors and cocktails under the guidance of experienced Bourbon Masters who can assist guests with pairing the right spirit with the right food. Bourbon’s caramel, vanilla and oak flavors pair well with many foods; chef Joe Thomas put careful consideration into the menu for this reason.

The restaurant carries Benjamin Franklin’s favorite milk punch cocktail (called Secret Knock), derived from Franklin’s own recipe he sent to a friend in Boston in the 1700s. Bank & Bourbon’s version—made with milk, green tea, whiskey and lemon juice— is served in brown glass apothecary bottles.

With 47,000-plus square feet of meeting space, executive chef Thomas Harkins of Loews Philadelphia Hotel and its on-site restaurant Bank & Bourbon feed many groups throughout the year.

 

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.

 

There was plenty going on for Global Meetings Industry Day on April 4 (the fourth annual Meetings Mean Business Coalition event), but NYC & Company caught everyone's attention by turning some of the city's most iconic buildings blue. Using MMBC’s signature color, the goal was to raise awareness of the impact that face-to-face meetings have on the global economy and NYC.

The following buildings stayed blue rom sundown to 2 a.m.:
