GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.
Rendezvous, now open at the Amway Grand Plaza, Curio Collection By Hilton, is the hotel’s newest culinary destination. The eatery and lounge will transition from day to night, offering “an inviting breakfast experience” in the morning before transforming into “a seductive lounge” in the evening.
Set within the main lobby of the landmark hotel, Rendezvous’ bespoke interior design is said to offer a glamorous yet warm aesthetic with black and gold accent details. Three dark wood communal tables with seating for up to 10 people act as the centerpieces for the space and offers a social experience.
For more intimate parties, the lounge features plush banquet seating and cozy two top tables.
“Rendezvous will add to the ever-evolving culinary scene in Downtown Grand Rapids,” said George Aquino, VP and managing director of AHC+Hospitality. “We wanted to create a comfortable space for the breakfast crowd while offering a fun, social environment for cocktails before or after dinner.”
For breakfast, Rendezvous features fresh, seasonal cuisine sourced by local farms in West Michigan. Guests will enjoy a sophisticated and robust breakfast buffet complete with omelet and waffle making stations, housemade breads and pastries, fresh juices and specialty coffee and tea.
As evening approaches, Rendezvous will transition into a sultry cocktail lounge with a curated menu of craft cocktails including Old Fashioned cocktails and Manhattan’s smoked tableside. Specialty drinks include the Acai Mojito and the Basil-Gin Fizz. The evening menu will serve lite bites, including international cheese and charcuterie including grass-fed beef with herbs, truffles and salt, flavorful snacks and sweet treats. Each night guests will enjoy live music by local Grand Rapids artists.
