Fenway Hotel’s Signature Restaurant Adds Golden Touch
DUNEDIN, Fla. (September 6, 2023) – HEW Parlor & Chophouse, located within the iconic Fenway Hotel, has completed renovations to its main dining room and private spaces, creating a “golden” opportunity for guests to explore newly refined menus from Executive Chef Clayton Parrett. The upgraded dining space, open kitchen, and new culinary offerings artfully blend to give HEW Parlor & Chophouse an elevated sense of timeless elegance. The changes are also a precursor to a new speakeasy opening later this fall, nestled within Fenway’s historic walls.
“As part of the renovation, we purposefully added several gold accents and elements throughout the space to create an upscale setting that is more aligned with the newly refined, yet approachable menus from Chef Clayton,” said Adam Duffey, general manager of Fenway Hotel. “Chef Clayton and his talented culinary team poured their passion and expertise into creating dishes that showcase local flavors and the freshest ingredients, while paying homage to timeless, shared traditions.”
In creating the new menus, Chef Clayton’s team drew inspiration from classic chophouses while embracing contemporary culinary trends. Focusing on quality, they rely on responsible, clean, local sources for everything from fresh beef, poultry, and seafood, to honey, tomatoes, corn, and more. It is all creatively showcased in new dishes such as Confit Duck Croque Madame, Caprese Avocado Toast, Seafood Beignets, and HEW’s showstopping 40-ounce Tomahawk Steak with 8-ounce Lobster Tail. Whether savoring the mouthwatering chophouse cuts, fresh seafood selections, or elevated brunch classics, the new menus are a testament to the expertise of HEW’s culinary artisans.
The restaurant’s interior now boasts a warm, welcoming balance of classic elegance and modern flair, with clouded antique gold mirrors and other accents that complement the newly painted faux-finished ceilings. The open chef’s kitchen, a focal point for HEW and the most sought out seats in the house, has also been redesigned with gold accents to tie into the overall ambiance. A palette of rich, darker hues is complemented by elegant blues and browns to evoke a sense of intimacy and refinement, perfect for romantic dinners, celebrations, and gatherings.
HEW Parlor & Chophouse is open for brunch Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dinner hours include Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 9:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.; and Sunday from 5 to 9:30 p.m. For reservations and more information, visitFenwayHotel.com and HEWchophouse.com.
