Fairmont Dallas has announced the addition of what it says is the first kosher kitchen in a downtown Dallas hotel. A ribbon-cutting on February 19 will host key members of the Dallas Jewish Community for a celebration, as Chad Mendelman, director of catering and conference services at Fairmont Dallas, details the hotel’s addition of kosher catering to its expansive list of event services with the 750-square-foot kosher kitchen.
The "only hotel kosher kitchen in Dallas’ urban core" will offer high quality service and delectable menu selections to guests planning Jewish weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, business meetings, multi-generational family gatherings, special events, and other celebrations for small occasions of 50 to larger events up to 1,000 guests. Under the direct supervision of local authority Dallas Kosher, the culinary team at Fairmont Dallas "is committed to upholding the Orthodox standards of tradition," the hotel's announcement states. "The Fairmont Dallas’ kosher kitchen will meet the strict requirements of certified orthodox kitchens in terms of equipment and types of foods served, handling, preparation, as well as food sourcing and storage according to kashrut, Jewish dietary law."
