Hilton Americas-Houston Introduces New Upscale Casual Dining Restaurant

Downtown Houston’s 1600 Bar + Grille Brings Local Texas Flair to Menus

November 02, 2014 – HOUSTON – Hilton Americas-Houston today announced the opening of 1600 Bar + Grille, downtown Houston’s newest dining destination. Featuring local, seasonal produce plus Certified Angus Beef and seafood from the Gulf, this upscale casual dining restaurant brings farm-fresh ingredients to the tempting offerings on its all-new breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

1600 Bar + Grille, located lobby-level just off the main rotunda of the Hilton Americas-Houston, offers a vibrant new atmosphere with menus that emphasize fresh, natural produce locally-sourced to guarantee a just-picked flavor. Sourcing products locally allows the restaurant’s experienced chefs to create dishes with a farm-to-fork freshness that isn’t possible at many restaurants. “Our food is prepared from scratch with emphasis on local ingredients with a Texas flair, to offer our guests an unparalleled freshness and variety of flavors,” said Ruffy Sulaiman, executive chef, Hilton Americas-Houston.

“Through local sourcing, we can offer our guests the highest quality steaks and chops. Steaks are aged 21 days then cooked in our 1600-degree infrared broilers to ensure the natural beef juices are sealed under a thin charred crust,” stated Sulaiman. “We then serve the steaks and chops a la carte, with a trio of chimichurri, roasted garlic and herbed butter to perfectly bring out the flavor of the meats.”

Local sources for most products used at 1600 Bar + Grille include Dilorio Farms, Bluebonnet Farms, Atkinson Farms, Froberg’s Farms and Gundermann Farms.

Directly connected to the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hilton Americas-Houston contains the city’s largest number of guest rooms, ballrooms, hotel meeting space, and the most technologically advanced services available under one roof. Conveniently situated between Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park, this AAA Four Diamond rated hotel boasts 1,200 elegantly appointed guest rooms, 91,500 square feet of flexible, technologically advanced meeting space, restaurants, lobby bars, coffee emporium and full service spa and health club.
