Media Release: Mint Hotel creates the ’45-minute lunch hour’

MINT Hotel, the award-winning city-centre hotel brand, is celebrating summer in novel style by launching a 45-minute express lunch, available from a mere £10 per person, across the group’s City Café restaurants.

For that sizzling price guests can enjoy two-courses from the restaurant’s Market Menu coupled with a drink, including any house wine, spirit and mixer, beer or soft drink – all of which the group pledges to serve within 45 minutes.

The £10 ‘Fresh this Summer’ offer is available in City Café restaurants at Mint Hotel Glasgow, Mint Hotel Birmingham, Mint Hotel Bristol, Mint Hotel Leeds and Mint Hotel Manchester. In London, the offer is priced at £10.95 at Mint Hotel Westminster and £12.50 at the new Mint Hotel Tower of London. At Mint Hotel Amsterdam, which opened its doors in June, the express lunch offer is priced at just €15.00.

Guests choosing the ‘Fresh this Summer’ offer will also be handed a City Café loyalty card, entitling them to receive a complimentary two-course lunch (exclusive of drinks), after five return visits to the restaurants – a great excuse to keep coming back. What’s more, the loyalty card can be used through across all City Café restaurants in the Mint Hotel group, and lasts until 30 March 2012.

The fantastic lunch offers are available between 12–1 pm weekdays, and 12.30–3pm on Saturdays, with the promotion lasting until 3 September 2011.

City Café offers diners a modern European cuisine experience with the Market Menu focusing on locally sourced, seasonal produce, all created under the careful guidance of group executive chef Scott Macdonald. Summer dishes in the offer include breast of chicken with roast pumpkin, curly kale and caper jus, or fillet of mackerel, steamed bok choi, spring onion, red watercress, grapefruit and ginger reduction. As City Café’s Market Menus change weekly, regular diners can expect new dishes based on the freshest seasonal, regional ingredients throughout the summer.

The offer guarantees that guests will be wined and dined within a 45-minute time window – ideal for busy city workers, locals and visitors wishing to sample the delicious cuisine of City Café. Mint’s 45-minute pledge does not apply to diners who wish to add a third course to their meal, available for an additional £3.

Mint Hotels is dedicated to creating fresh, contemporary hotels thoughtfully designed to blend with each property’s cityscape. The group has eight properties – seven in the UK and its first international location in Amsterdam. People are put at the heart of each Mint hotel, with the customer truly coming first and Mint’s staff empowered to deliver memorable service.
