OMNI HOTELS & RESORTS SWEETENS THINGS UP WITH ‘SUMMER OF PASSION FRUIT’ – THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF THE OMNI ORIGINALS CULINARY PROGRAM
The underrated fruit brings delicious flavor to cocktails and dishes on poolside menus at Omni properties across the country
DALLAS (May 16, 2019) – This summer, guests at Omni Hotels & Resorts can enjoy passion fruit-infused cocktails and fare by the pool with the latest rendition of the Omni Originals culinary series, Summer of Passion Fruit. The Omni Originals program, which launched in 2017, is set to surprise and delight guests’ palates through innovative dishes and crafted cocktails.
“We were inspired by the summer’s hottest fruit to develop a menu that would surpass traditional poolside offerings,” said Devin Burns, vice president of food and beverage at Omni Hotels & Resorts. “Passion fruit has a bold, sweet and slightly tart flavor that serves as a complement to a variety of sweet, creamy and savory dishes. Inspired by its versatility, our culinary and beverage teams were able to creatively weave the fruity flavor into inventive dishes and cocktails.”
The below dishes are a sampling of what guests can see on the Summer of Passion Fruit menu:
- Salmon Poke Bowl: passion fruit aioli, avocado, cilantro, sweet chili, wonton crisps, sesame seeds
- Watermelon and Kiwi Salad: baby bok choy, almond, fennel, passion fruit vinaigrette
- Jackfruit Tacos al Pastor: passion fruit salsa, salsa verde, radish, onion, cilantro, lime
- Smoked Baby Back Ribs: passion fruit barbecue, pickled onions, peppers
