Cote d'Azur Hotel's Epicurean Events Give Guests Plenty to Savor

From Decadent Brunches to Beaujolais Tastings, the JW Marriott Cannes Has Become a Dining Destination

CANNES, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2014) - Visitors may flock to Cannes for its glamorous lifestyle and sun-kissed beaches, but the JW Marriott Cannes is reminding everyone that there's more to this celebrity hotspot than red carpets. And that something is food. As the glitterati disperse, this French Riviera hotel is drawing on its cultural heritage to offer locals and guests three more reasons to love France: its food, its drink and of course its Beaujolais.

Beaujolais has earned a cult reputation around the world, thanks largely to the anticipation surrounding the release of this young red wine that's fermented for only a few weeks. Such anticipation is rewarded on its November 20, 2014 when this La Croisette Cannes hotel will offer bottles for tasting. Guests can take their Beaujolais in the opulent JW Grill Cannes, in the relaxing Lobby Bar Lounge or, for a view to match the inspiration of Beaujolais itself, at Le Panorama Rooftop Bar.

While Beaujolais disappears almost as quickly as it arrives, JW Grill Cannes has mastered another exclusive sipping opportunity. Drawing on the city's love affair with fashion and celebrity, this standout option among Cannes restaurants has partnered with the Austrian jewelry house, Freywille, to develop a signature, eponymous cocktail. The result combines Havana Club rum with vanilla and apricot liqueurs, mango juice and strawberry syrup for a cocktail that is as artistic as the enameled creations Freywille is known for. Guests can order the cocktail on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for EUR 12.

Of course, the best way to experience a drink is with food, especially when that food is part of a sumptuous epicurean adventure known as Sunday Brunch at the JW Grill Cannes. Guests embark on their gastronomic tour with selected starters and cheeses before choosing from a range of entrees like the selection of autumn-themed soups of the day and seafood assortments. While they wait, they can drop in at the carving station or pay a visit to the raw bar for something succulent to whet their appetite. And when the meal is done, an abundance of pastries and homemade desserts creates a happy ending.

Available every Sunday from noon to 3 p.m., the Sunday Brunch includes a glass of Champagne, wine, fruit juice, water and coffee. Adults can indulge in the experience for EUR 59 per person, and children ages 7 to 12 years old can dine for EUR 29.50 each.

Celebrities and paparazzi may be part of what made Cannes famous to begin with, but culinary events like those at the JW Marriott Cannes ensure that the city remains a stellar destination all year round.
