Hotel Max Bags Traditional Room Service with Casual Craft In-Room Dining from Miller’s Guild

March 5, 2014 – SEATTLE, Wash. – Seattle’s most buzzed about new restaurant, Miller’s Guild, has launched a revolutionized room service program in partnership with Hotel Max. Instead of a linen draped tray and sliver domed plate covers, Miller’s Guild’s culinary craft is delivered in custom-stamped brown paper bags with butcher’s twine, compostable containers and personalized labels and tags, complete with the name of the cook who prepared your meal.

“Guests are not interested in getting wilted carnations and plastic salt and pepper shakers with a setup that’s otherwise a little formal,” said Bashar Wali, President of Provenance Hotels. “We are rethinking the entire approach to in-room dining. We don’t want the setup to compete with the food.”

Miller’s Guild is the second restaurant from James Beard Award-winning Chef Jason Wilson of Seattle’s celebrated Crush. The restaurant has been showered with praise and media buzz since it first fired up the 9-foot custom wood-fired grill in mid-December 2013, including Food and Wine’s list of Best New Steakhouses and Eater Seattle’s Heat Map.

“We wanted this room service experience to reflect the craftsmanship that Miller’s Guild is rooted in,” said Wilson. “A simple, no-frills presentation with labels handwritten by our cooks, really reflects our handcrafted, made-to-order approach.”

At Hotel Max room service menu items from Miller’s Guild include an open faced Piedmontese steak tartare sandwich, or the house-ground beef burger with white cheddar, house pickled veggies, thick cut bacon smoked on the Miller’s Guild Grill and a crispy bun. Guests can enjoy anything from a parfait of house granola, berries and yogurt for breakfast to Miller’s Guild’s acclaimed sausage-topped kale and hazelnut salad, or an open-faced short rib sandwich sprinkled with horseradish, parsley and yuzu.
