TORONTO—Today Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts launches its second Food Truck tour, making stops in nine cities as it travels down the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. from Boston to Miami. In each destination, the local Four Seasons culinary team will play host on the truck, serving up exclusive menus and culinary experiences to the local community and hotel guests, ranging from intimate farm dinners to charity events in partnership with local universities.
“After a great run down the West Coast last year, we are thrilled to kick off our East Coast tour,” said Guy Rigby, vice president of food and beverage, Americas. “The food truck concept allows us to pair our commitment to innovation and quality with a dynamic setting that provides Four Seasons chefs an opportunity to share their creativity, craft, and passion for food with the local community.”
The truck will spend up to six days in each destination on the tour, making stops at key landmarks and attending events including Philadelphia’s LOVE Park, Piedmont Park Farmers Market in Atlanta, and the Food Truck Roundup in Wynwood, Miami. In New York, the Food Truck will spend a day outside the iconic Kleinfeld Bridal giving away miniature wedding cakes.
Street-food menus created by local Four Seasons chefs will vary from city to city, and dishes range from classic regional specialties to chefs’ innovative creations. Lobster rolls headline the menu in Boston, while pastrami sliders in New York City celebrate the traditional deli sandwich. Farther south, Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta team will offer a variety of Southern-inspired summer favorites such as a boiled p-nuts, a Savannah crab cake sandwich with Old Bay remoulade, and pumpkin moon pies.
Beyond providing diverse culinary experiences, the Food Truck is a charitable endeavor. A portion of Food Truck revenue from each participating hotel will be donated to a local charity in each market. Charitable causes include breast cancer awareness, foster care, education, and pediatric oncology research.
