St. Louis Airport Hotel's New Restaurant to Offer Local, Seasonal, Sustainable Flavor

Contemporary America Cuisine With a Global Point of View at Norah's Crafted Food & Spirits

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - There's no better time than the New Year to reinvent oneself, and at the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel, a St. Louis business hotel, things have never looked better.

On February 2, 2012, the hotel unveils its new St. Louis Airport restaurant concept, Norah's Crafted Food & Spirits. At Norah's, the focus is on what's fresh, with a menu featuring local and sustainable ingredients in dishes that take a global approach to contemporary American cuisine. The farm-to-table restaurant aims to source as much as it can from local farmers' markets, and works with purveyors from the greater Missouri and Illinois areas for meat, produce, cheese, and jam. Drinks highlight St. Louis's beer history, and cocktails feature fresh juices and classic garnishes. Diners can expect everything from a local asparagus and goat cheese tart to Missouri smoke trout beignets, plus seasonal desserts that are all made in-house. The menu also highlights the contributing farmers and artisans. The look and feel of Norah's Crafted Food & Spirits reflects the changes on the menu, with a contemporary rustic aesthetic featuring wood, stainless steel accents and one-of-a-kind artwork.

The new restaurant concept coincides with the hotel's updated lobby, incorporating a library, lobby and lounge. Guests will find comfortable niches, perfect for spending an evening in solitude with a good book and a glass of wine, or for sharing stories and small bites with new friends. Modern, luxurious details include sleek seating, sculptural lighting and wood pieces that add a bit of warmth.

The spirit of change carries over to the rooms and suites at this AAA Four Diamond property, where newly renovated accommodations feature a warm color palette, pillow-top mattresses, large seating and work areas, and high-speed Internet access. With convenient airport parking in St. Louis, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, and a complimentary airport shuttle, the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel is the ideal choice for your next visit.

General Manager Bill Fontes remarked, "The updates guests see in the hotel lobby will be significant. The look and feel of the lobby is now in-line with the core values of Renaissance as a brand -- Intriguing, Indigenous and Independent. The design is a contemporary style that combines unique textures from the St. Louis region and its industrial roots. We expect the feedback to be very positive and guests will be inspired by the new spaces they'll discover."
