AKA University City is pleased to introduce Walnut Street Café’s award-winning restaurant experience to the comfort and safety of its hotel residencies. This is not your typical in-room dining program, however. Unprecedented times call for unparalleled innovations, leading the hotel and restaurant partnership to convert hotel suites into full-service, private-dining experiences in compliance with the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
The new program, dubbed “Walnut Suite Cafe,” offers AKA University City residents and Philadelphia locals alike the opportunity to reserve a suite specifically for a Walnut Street Café dinner with their household. Soaring 730 feet from ground level, AKA features sophisticated design elements including sleek, minimalist fixtures, floor to ceiling windows, and contemporary furnishings. Designed for extended stays, AKA’s residences already boast dining areas complete with fully appointed kitchens, dining tables, flatware, glassware and everything you need to comfortably enjoy a high-quality, in-room meal. Every suite also features stunning views of Philadelphia from a sky-high vantage point, making in-suite dining feel more like a dinner party at an upscale apartment.
Now, the hotel has a culinary force behind it with custom menus from Walnut Street Café that were thoughtfully developed to bring a multi-course, elegant dining experience straight to guests’ tables. Customizable three-course seasonal tasting menus will be available for $65 per person with sample dishes that include Hamachi Crudo, Braised Short Ribs and Slow Cooked Pork Shoulder. Bottled craft cocktails, a curated list of beer and wine by the bottle and glass and non-alcoholic beverages are available to supplement the meal. Dishes and drinks will arrive via room service with serving instructions to keep the experience contact-less for guests. Suites are equipped with stoves, microwaves and fridges, making any reheating and leftover prep the next day seamless.
