This year we had the opportunity to celebrate the holidays at the elegant Park Hyatt hotel, home to the RAMMY's Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year, the Blue Duck Tavern. As a gift to my parents, we got them the Christmas in the Park package which included a deluxe room and breakfast at Blue Duck Tavern. Since it was also my mom's 60th birthday, we celebrated her big day with a wonderful dinner downstairs at BDT prepared by Chef Sebastien Archambault.
The Park Hyatt was beautifully decorated for the season with luscious holiday trees and toasty apple cider to combat the wind and chill outside.
The deluxe hotel room included as part of the package was spacious with a simple and sleek design. I thought the seating area was especially stunning with clean lines and natural light to cozy up with a glass of wine and a magazine before dinner.
As always, dinner at the Blue Duck Tavern was outstanding. The food was delicious and a few of my favorites included the roasted cauliflower, potato puree (silky smooth and rich with flavor), and the wood oven-roasted bone marrow.
