The Keating Now Taking Reservations for 'Hotel Hell' Viewing Party
August 20, 2012 at 10:34 AM
Ramsay and The Keating's owner Edward Kaen look very happy indeed.
Could this be a sign that things went very well during the filming of Hotel Hell at The Keating Hotel in San Diego?
The hotel, which recently underwent an operational makeover from master chef turned hospitality consultant Gordon Ramsay, is now accepting dinner reservations in its newly redone MerK Bistro for a special live screening on August 27 of the episode that features the hotel. There will even be a special tasting menu on offer!
Word is the episode will focus on defining the hotel's design aesthetic and streamlining the "synergy between the hotel and its restaurant." Ramsay obviously puts his spin on the restaurant menu, adding a small selection of farm-to-table options.
The dinner at MerK will start at 7:30pm (the show begins at 8pm) and will include a tasting menu of the Ramsay-crafted dishes as well as some specialty cocktals. To make a reservation, go to http://www.themerk.com/reservations.asp or call (619) 814-MERK (6375).
Meanwhile, tonight's episode of Hotel Hell goes inside The Cambridge Hotel in upstate New York actuallly closed down in June. Guess there won't be any dinner parties at the hotel to watch this episode.
