Hyatt Regency Minneapolis ups its appeal to the Jewish community with its newest dining venue, Kosher Kitchen. Led by Executive Chef Aaron Hagerdorn (pictured), Kosher Kitchen offers a separate on-site banquet kitchen and full kosher menu to accommodate guests’ needs, as well as catering kosher events such as Jewish weddings, and bar and bat mitzvahs. According to Orthodox law, kosher meals cannot be prepared with the same dishes, utensils or ingredients that were previously used to make non-kosher food. The Hyatt Regency Minneapolis has a designated separate room near the new North Star Ballroom with its own equipment for this purpose. Kosher Kitchen contains all stainless-steel appliances and houses two sets of small kitchen equipment and utensils such as blenders, food processors, pots and pans—allowing the hotel to accommodate both meat and dairy kosher meals. All equipment and the kitchen itself were blessed by Rabbi Shimon Perez (pictured) of the Kehila Kashruth of Minnesota.
Hagerdorn’s kosher cuisine upholds Orthodox standards of tradition and commitment. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes, including a Mediterranean station complete with assorted olives, flat breads and house-made hummus, and classic desserts such as babkas and rugelachs. The hotel’s extensive kosher menu is available upon prior request for groups or individual guests. Custom menus are also available.
Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is located in downtown Minneapolis. The property has 645 guest rooms, a full-service business center, two dining outlets, an indoor heated pool, a health club and 105,000 square feet of flexible function space. In addition, the AAA Four-Diamond hotel is connected via skywalk to the Minneapolis Convention Center, which offers an additional 475,000 square feet of exhibit space.
