What does an all-day café have in common with a cocktail bar, or even an in-room amenities tray? No, this is not the beginning of a bad joke. It’s a real question, and the answer is glassware.

Re-imagining the classic faceted café glass, Hospitality Brands’ FLEETING is for the ephemeral moments you want to make last forever. The collection’s crystal-cut look draws in the eye while accentuating its refreshing contents. Casual yet refined, and referencing past, present, and future with a classic and enduring form, Fleeting is truly versatile. Combined with the line’s durability, stackability, and unbeatable price point, this makes it an easy choice!

Fleeting by Hospitality Brands

An 8 ounce tumbler is ideal for water or juice, of course, but it can easily double as an approachable, relaxed, wine glass. Fleeting’s 9-¾ ounce whiskey glass is another horse we’d bet on for the rigors of foodservice. An 11 ¼ ounce highball rounds out the collection; the perfect Collins glass for cocktails, soda, or a tall, summery, iced tea. We’re thirsty already!

Chelsea’s ultra-mod Hotel Americano has added a splash of spice and flair to its lobby with the opening of La Central.

This Pan-American restaurant, led by Executive Chef Franklin Becker, has a menu influenced by Mexican and Peruvian cuisine and heightened with the flavors that ignite passion in his team of chefs. A canvas of modern neutrals allows this diversity of spices, textures, and flavors to shine, and integrates seamlessly with the hotel’s décor. Becker and his team have chosen to set their tables with Felt + Fat’s signature B&B plate in slate, a cool, satin-matte black finish, framed by Sambonet’s Hannah flatware collection.

When it’s time for a drink, have one of Michael Parrish’s sharp and balanced cocktails in equally balanced glassware. The Broken Shaker alum is using Bormioli Rocco’s Bodega and Rona’s Minners, both from Steelite, to showcase his creations.

Figgjo’s Pax collection serves as the stage for Becker’s delicious and thoughtful cuisine that honors tradition while updating it – delectably. You’ll see Figgjo’s porcelain throughout your meal, in optic white and in subtle tones of grey and beige. Tacos arrive in a stainless steel taxi atop the Pax 8” racetrack oval, a unique shape that is growing increasingly popular on the tabletop. Order the enchiladas and you’ll receive Figgjo’s Ting 8-1/4” plate with a slanted lip, perfect for not leaving a morsel behind.

La Central also makes thoughtful use of Anfora’s Chena collection, made in Mexico. Shallow bowls in matte black and white are used for a range of shared plates and appetizers, including crudités paired with four salsas that come in a custom wood caddy from Culinary Wood Designs.

Don’t skip dessert; sugary salty sweet churro waffles are served in Chena White as well, contrasted with Chena Black coffee service to send you along your way in sueños of La Central.
