Omni Fort Worth Hotel has appointed Amol Agarwal as their new executive chef. Having more than 20 years of experience, the seasoned chef will oversee Bob’s Steak & Chop House, Cast Iron Restaurant, Wine Thief, Whiskey & Rye, and Water Horse Pool Bar.

Agarwal studied cuisine at the Institute of Hotel management in Chennai, India. He started his career as the chef de partie at the Four Seasons in Goa, India. Since then he has worked all over the world, including China, Jamaica and the Maldives.

Most recently, he was the executive chef and director of food and beverage at Loews Regency Hotel in San Francisco. He’s also worked for The Ritz Carlton in South Beach, Fla, the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Straits Restaurants in San Francisco.

Omni Hotels & Resorts seeks to create unique and genuine experiences for their guests. Agarwal’s authentic style of cooking, using local ingredients for flavorful dishes, will be a great fit for the Fort Worth-based property. For more information, visit omnihotels.com.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
