Kohler Co. has announced the appointment of Doug Stringer as head chef of The Immigrant Restaurant, located at The American Club resort-hotel at Destination Kohler.

Stringer joined Kohler Co. in 2015 as sous chef of Riverbend, where he oversaw all facets of kitchen operations, purchasing, food cost management, staffing, menu design, and overall leadership. He has over seven years of fine dining and hospitality experience. In his new role, he will oversee the development and creation of culinary programs.

“Chef Stringer has exemplified his dedicated passion, drive and creativity throughout his tenure with Kohler Co., and we are thrilled to see him take the lead at the Immigrant Restaurant,” says Tom McGinty, director of food and beverage operations at Destination Kohler. “The Immigrant Restaurant is one of our premier dining offerings, and we’re confident that chef will continue to elevate the illustrious program with his innovative approach to fine dining.”

Kohler’s celebrated dining program, The Immigrant Restaurant is rich in character and historic significance. The layout is designed in six spaces, representing the nationalities that populated Wisconsin in its early days (French, Dutch, German, Normandy, Danish and English). The restaurant features a seasonally evolving and is accompanied with an extensive vintage wine and spirit list.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
