Tasting Menu For Tempo by Hilton Hotel Properties

Would you dine on these food items?

A tasting menu for Tempo by Hilton hotel properties was served for lunch during a sneak peek of a mock-up of the LivSmart Studios by Hilton brand as part of the Art of the Brand event that was sponsored by Hilton in Nashville recently.

Beside the long table where lunch was to be served was a wall which contained a brief description of each brand that is — or will be — included as part of the Hilton brand portfolio.

Each person had a paper menu with colored pencils and his or her name written in script and memorialized in plastic — all inserted in a gray cloth napkin. It was a nice touch for the theme Art of the Brand for Hilton.

Red Beet Hummus with assorted root vegetables and cucumber spears was served as part of the first course.

Burrata & Crostini were served with halved assorted grape tomatoes to round out the first course. I am not sure what the green sauce was; but it was good. I did not have any of the Burrata, as I instead chose to use the aforementioned Red Beet Hummus for my Crostini.

A Green Goodness Bowl was the second course. It contained cucumber slices, pickled onions, greens in a light dressing, avocado with seeds, and assorted olives. The flavors were subtle and refreshing.

Blackened Salmon Tacos, Beef Burgers, Impossible Burgers, Roasted Cauliflower, and Roasted Carrots comprised the third course. I truly enjoyed the salmon taco, which was in a soft tortilla. The salmon was blackened and seasoned very nicely, with the greens and the pickled onions rounding out the flavor. I picked the cheese off of both hamburgers, which I also enjoyed. They were prepared somewhere between medium to medium well, which was at the perfect temperature for me. The roasted vegetables were tasty.

When a server came around asking if anyone wanted more of the hamburgers, I raised my hand, thinking I would get another quarter of one of the hamburgers, which would have sufficed. Instead, I was given half of each hamburger, which were large. I did not finish them.

Affogato was served as dessert for the fourth course — along with a warm DoubleTree cookie, which was in a sleeve that was designed by the winner of the DoubleTree Doodle Contest. The coffee flavor of the Affogato was way too strong for my taste; but I did enjoy the vanilla ice cream that was in it.

Among the choices of beverages that were available was blackberry lemonade, which was refreshingly not too sweet and not too tart. I really enjoyed it.

Final Boarding Call

When the tasting menu for Tempo by Hilton hotel properties will be rolled out was not officially announced at the time this article was written — although only two Tempo by Hilton hotel properties are currently open. The pricing of the menu items were also not yet officially announced.

As for the menu items, I enjoy most of it. The food was well prepared; the ingredients were fresh; and I was more than satiated when lunch concluded.

  1. Brian – who were your dining companions during this experience and where did they steer the topics of conversation.

    Also when will Hilton roll out the more upscale Topaz by Waldorf boutique brand? And will there be a more family oriented Taurus by Hilton brand?

    1. Dining companions included several fellow bloggers and executives from Hilton, Greg.

      Unfortunately, none of those brands were brought up during the entire event over three days — but I can pass on your questions to Hilton…

      1. Thank you, although I wouldn’t relay those questions to Hilton.

        They are the names of Ford’s brands for its mass market passenger vehicles of the 1980s. Ford Tempo / Mercury Topaz, Ford Taurus / Mercury Sable.

        Tempo will remain in my mind associated with a mediocre vehicle.

        1. Wow, Greg. That one flew over my head like a falcon! Well done!

          You are a real maverick for asking those questions. Thank you for being an escort of guiding me by what you meant and having me escape further embarrassment of horsing around like a pinto or a mustang. You had the edge; but I will aspire to do better and focus more in the futura.

          The Ford Tempo was such a forgettable car that I actually had to look it up to remember what it looked like. I then realized that it deserved to remain forgettable…
