The Paramount Hotel and LDV Hospitality recently partnered to create a new menu and food philosophy for the hotel's restaurant, Paramount Bar & Grill. Formerly dedicated to fried food and small bites, the new menu features all-American inspirations and offerings—including both food and drinks—and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late bar.
LDV Hospitality, which also owns well-known spots such as Scarpetta and Veritas, is expected to do very well with their new American-inspired full menu. LDV Hospitality principals John Meadow and Curt Huegel expressed their excitement about the new menu and space, highlighting signature dishes from executive chef Jason Kallert, including the meatballs, burger, grilled whole branzino, and chicken pot pie.
Also new is the Italian coffee bar now open in the hotel, Corso Coffee, another product of their partnership with LDV. The bar is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and serves predominantly sandwiches, salads, charcuterie, pastries, coffees, and wines.
Lobby décor has also been revamped, spanning the space between Corso and Paramount Bar & Grill. The space now mimics a nightclub-type lounge with a DJ lofted in the center of the space, cool lighting, and sleek furniture. The only entrance into Paramount Bar & Grill is through this lobby space, however Corso can be entered from the street as well and through the lobby.
