The Saint Louis Art Museum and Le Méridien St. Louis Clayton collaborate for a cultural dining experience
Le Méridien St. Louis Clayton (7730 Bonhomme) works with the Saint Louis Art Museum to offer guests a special themed experience.
Starting today, Clayton’s newest hotel is offering hotel guests free access to SLAM’s special exhibitions. To celebrate the next major exhibition, Nubia: Treasures of Ancient Africa, a dinner inspired by the exhibition will open on April 18 at the hotel’s Café la Vie restaurant, which will last until August.
On April 15th and 16th, Chef Michael Frank is offering a special menu and themed cocktail inspired by Nubian heritage and culture. The three-course meal includes a choice of hummus or chicken kofta. roasted branzino with chickpea and lentil stew or grilled lamb sirloin with avjar and asparagus tabbouleh; and lemon poppy seed cake or halvah snacks for dessert.
“I was inspired by the exhibition and wanted to honor the old architecture, works of art and jewelry while adding a modern touch to every dish,” Frank said in a press release.
Dinner is $ 45 per person. A Nubian Spritz (1220 Spirits Flora Aperitif, Date Syrup, Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic, Lavender Bitter, and Lime) is available for an additional $ 10. (SLAM members receive a 10 percent discount on their final bill.) Reservations can be secured online.
