The tradition of innovative culinary excellence continues with cuisine and experiences inspired by each destination.
Legendary maître d' Oscar Tschirky ("Oscar of The Waldorf") made his considerable reputation by creating dishes such as the Waldorf Salad, Veal Oscar, Lobster Newburg, and Eggs Benedict, and by popularizing the Red Velvet Cake and Thousand Island Dressing.
And now, with a global reach of inspiration, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts infuse their culinary delights with local flavor to serve you a dining experience like no other. Here are just a few of the uncommon dining experiences that await you.
