Palmilla Cocina y Tequila on the Hermosa Beach pier promenade will begin serving a new brunch menu featuring Mexican style breakfast items created by Executive Chef Christina Cipres.

The revamped menu spins classics like the Mexicana French Toast with Mexican sweet bread crusted with "Honey Bunches of Oats" and topped with fresh berries and the Huecos Blancos Burrito, a whole wheat tortilla with fresh vegetables and egg whites. The Papas Rajas Hash spices things up with crispy potatoes, choice of meat, cotija cheese, avocado and topped with two fried eggs and jalapeno crema.

In addition to the menu, six artisan hand-crafted brunch cocktails will also make their debut. For example, The Palmilla Sunrise compines Cazadores Reposado tequila, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur muddled raspberries and fresh orange juice topped with a champagne float.

The brunch is available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. 

Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) has selected the Monarch Beach Resort in Orange County, California, as a recipient of the 2018 “Chairman Award” for the Hotel of the Year.

The award, given to an ALHI member hotel or resort, celebrates outstanding leadership and loyalty to performance in the preceding year. The award also celebrates a property’s teamwork with ALHI’s Global Sales Team to benefit the meetings and events industry.

 

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 family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
