February at The Peabody Orlando: Food of Love at Dux & V-Day Bomb Martini

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - Scores of thousands of conventioneers attending the annual Home Builders exhibition will be converging on Orlando's International Drive corridor over the St. Valentine's Day period this year. Hotels and restaurants are already sold out for February 14.

"We want to make sure our valued local community patrons get to celebrate with their special Valentine, ahead of the crowds," said John Askew, director of food and beverage for the hotel. "So, we are offering very special dining menus in Dux, and an optional overnight stay on Saturday, February 9. In addition, for the entire month of February, we will be serving our latest Peabody martini, the 'V-Day Bomb Martini,' a loving cup for the delight of chocoholics, with vodka, dark chocolate liqueur and Bailey's Irish."

On February 9, lovers can dine in style at what Orlando magazine recently named as Orlando's "favorite special occasion" restaurant, Dux. Choose from the a la carte menu, or from the special St. Valentine's Tasting Menu. Then, relax and stay the night in one of the hotel's luxurious, deluxe guestrooms.

"We love lovers at The Peabody Orlando, and St. Valentine's is one of our culinary team's favorite celebrations of the year," said Karl Edlbauer, corporate executive chef, Peabody Hotels. "Julio Delgado, chef de cuisine for Dux, is a hopeless romantic. His brilliantly innovative a la carte menu, and his special $95 St. Valentine's Tasting Menu, offer a memorable, sensuous 'Dinner for Lovers' that will send Cupid into a flurry of flight to delight the palates and warm the hearts of lovers."
