Blue Duck Tavern

Achim Lenders, vice present of international food & beverage operations for Hyatt, was the recipient of Food Arts Silver Spoon award in November. The magazine recognized Mr. Lender’s efforts of reinvigorating hotel dining and success by removing barriers between the kitchen and diners.

Among his many accolades, Mr. Lenders is the mastermind behind the first ever on-sight hotel farmer’s market at Andaz Wall Street, Michelin-stared NoMI’s urban chic dining atmosphere at Park Hyatt Chicago, and unique farm-to table display at Park Hyatt Washington, D.C.’s Blue Duck Tavern. While the chefs deserve praise, we are glad to see Mr. Lender’s have a piece of the love too!
