SAN FRANCISCO—The juicing trend that has taken the country by storm has become even easier for frequent travelers to take advantage of with the launch of Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants’ new fresh juice menu. Created to promote health and boost energy, Kimpton’s new juice menu features three delicious and healthy juice blends made from freshly picked local fruits and vegetables. Currently available at 10 Kimpton restaurants across the country, the program will be rolled out across all of the company’s properties nationwide later this year.
The collection of 16-ounce juices sell for $8-12 each across Kimpton’s restaurants and come in three blends. Executive Chef Christian Graves from Jsix in San Diego, who’s known for helping to reshape San Diego’s culinary scene through his “slow food approach” crafted and refined the following juice recipes using healthy, local ingredients:
The juices will be highlighted on breakfast, lunch, and pool menus for restaurant and hotel guests to enjoy. All juices sold at Kimpton restaurants will be made using either a Cold Press Juicer or Centrifugal Juice Extractors.
Juicing is the latest in Kimpton’s list of wellness offerings for restaurant and hotel guests who are committed to staying healthy while traveling. Last year, the company introduced a partnership to offer free bike rentals at all its properties, as well as designed a Kimpton custom yoga mat in partnership with Gaiam available in all guestrooms.
“Travel can be taxing on the body and can certainly throw up a few obstacles to keeping a regular health and fitness regime going. At Kimpton, we aim to reduce some of those obstacles and are always on the hunt for new and innovative ways to help our guests feel great when they stay with us,” said Mike DeFrino, chief operating officer at Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants. “The health benefits of juicing have been well documented for decades and our guests tell us they feel good about the option to replenish some vitamins and minerals while on the road. It’s really just an extension of our ongoing wellness offerings.”
