Backstage at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon
Wednesday 4, May 2011
Varanda restaurant offers guests an opportunity to visit the kitchen and meet the chefs.
In a new and exclusive initiative, the restaurant Varanda at the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon opens the doors to its very own kitchen.
Not only will guests be invited to enjoy the lunch buffet, they will also be given a sneak peak to the hidden secrets of the restaurant’s kitchen. The Hotel’s Director of Food and Beverage Adrian Messerli explains: “On Easter Sunday we gave our guests the chance to explore what goes on behind-the-scenes at our restaurant. The feedback was so positive that we have decided to offer this unique experience on a more regular basis.”
During selected Sunday buffets, in addition to restaurant’s usual suggestions, upon visiting the kitchen guests will be able to order their dish of choice, watch while it’s being prepared, meet the chefs and even trade tips and recipes with them.
The buffet at Varanda is offered daily from 12:30 to 3:00 pm. The next “Backstage” Buffet will take place on May 15, 2011 and will be offered the usual price of EUR 57.00 per person. Reservations recommended.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
