Retreats Resources is taking the show on the road to the Northeast for the first time ever!! And while we usually take this space to help familiarize you with the venues we chose, in this particular upcoming series we also want to introduce you to the Chefs we have partnered with for each event! We call them “Chefs with Heart”, and we think you will see why. Let’s start with a little background on our second stop on the Northeast Roadshow: The Delamar, West Hartford and Millwright’s Restaurant and Tavern, Simsbury.
Founder of the Greenwich Hospitality Group and owner of the DELAMAR West Hartford, Charles Mallory’s passion for historic preservation, art, and design has set the stage for a guest experience unlike any other. With the hotel’s impressive façade and striking interior spaces, it’s fair to say that DELAMAR West Hartford’s signature aesthetic raises hospitality to an art form. Surrounded by cozy comfort, but also surrounded by a mix of luxe fabrics and finishes, sculptural objects, fine art, and whimsical touches that will captivate not just your imagination but also your senses.
Moving on to our showcase and dinner location, Millwright’s Chef Tyler Anderson has become a well known name in the Connecticut restaurant scene, recognized for his outstanding restaurants and off-site catering, reputation for “giving back” to his community and one of a kind sense of humor!
His restaurants have garnered numerous statewide awards including best restaurant overall (six times), three best new restaurant awards and many more. Tyler has been nominated for the James Beard Best Chef Northeast award seven years in a row. He has also been named CT Chef of the Year. Tyler was a contestant on Season 15 of Top Chef, as well as on episodes of Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay. Living by the simple credo, “Be Nice. Work Hard. Eat Well!”, Tyler spent his pandemic years developing a mobile kitchen program, allowing foodies to safely enjoy his cooking in small backyard gatherings. Tyler is dedicated to ending childhood hunger through his work with No Kid Hungry.
Come join us in Connecticut and see for yourself, from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm at Millwright’s for our luxury destination showcase followed by dinner from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm with a Chef’s Tasting at Millwright’s Restaurant and Tavern featuring Chef Tyler Anderson.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Delamar and Millwright’s Restaurant and Tavern in Connecticut on July 20th and the second stop on the inaugural Northeast Roadshow!
