CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - Dec 26, 2013) - Christmas has a reputation for being all about the presents, but when it comes down to it, the food is just as important. The holiday meal, after all, is what brings far-flung family members together and lends structure to the day's events. And it doesn't matter if Christmas is the year's most anticipated holiday or barely on one's radar -- everyone can get in on the feast, especially when it's being held at the Charleston Marriott Town Center.
Home to one of the best restaurants in Charleston, West Virginia, Brick Salt Bar + Kitchen, the hotel is accustomed to welcoming guests for birthday, anniversary and other special-occasion dinners. The seasonal menu, which highlights local ingredients and is prepared by Chef Tyler Murray, has accordingly won over a devoted following, which means Murray's Christmas brunch will be the premier event among Charleston, West Virginia hotels.
One look at the menu confirms as much. Seven different stations feature traditional breakfast favorites like waffles and omelets, chef-crafted salads, make-your-own-salads, specialty displays (think local cheeses and shrimp cocktail), carved meats, hot selections and desserts.
With such diversity of choice, this Charleston Town Center Mall hotel ensures that every preference is met. Traditionalists can pile their plates with slow-roasted prime rib of beef, sautéed vegetables and pie, while others might enjoy chicken cacciatore or roasted salmon with citrus salsa, followed by one (or five) of Chef Murray's signature Peppermint Cheesecake Bites, made with Oreo cookie crumbs and crushed peppermint candies. Whatever ends up on the table, guests will be able to enjoy it within the warm, casually elegant dining room of one of the finest hotels near the Charleston Civic Center.
Seating times for the Christmas Brunch are at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 1-304-353-3632. Rates, exclusive of tax and gratuity, are $29.95 per person, although seniors and children receive discounts. Children 4 and under dine on a complimentary basis.
