Culinary Advisors was part of an architectural team to renovate the Donovan Hotel, now called Hotel Zena. This project included renovating the kitchen, lobby bar, rooftop bar, and adding a pantry near the rooftop bar/pool.
The new design has bright vibrant hues and all women commissioned art throughout the entire space. Guests are now greeted with a circular lobby bar and comfortable seating in the lobby area. The lobby bar is centrally located between the lobby and gathering/event space so it can serve both sides. In the morning it serves coffee, espresso, and grab and go breakfast items.
The kitchen offers a small bites menu for the gathering spaces next to the lobby bar and acts as a catering kitchen for the event spaces on 14th floor.
The rooftop bar serves the pool deck and event spaces on the 14th floor, and has sliding glass windows so it can be accessed from the pool deck in the warmer months. The menu served is created from the new pantry behind the bar.
