October 1st - December 31st

Each year our culinary team travels the globe in search of unique and bold flavors. This year, our quest led us to Chile, where on the Western edge of South America, we discovered rustic flavors, warm and welcoming people, a compelling landscape and some of the best wines in the world.

For the ninth installment of our Flavors of the World promotion, we created an authentic Chilean menu paired with hand-selected wines that truly reflect our utter enchantment with this region. We have captured the medley of unique climates and incredible terroir that our chefs and culinary team experienced through a cultural immersion of this beautiful country.

Together with our partners, Wines of Chile,
we invite you to savor the unique flavors of this South American destination.

Chef Todd wins Iron Chef Elm City

The master artisan who creates the cuisine of Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale

Our own Chef had the opportunity to compete in this year’s Iron Chef Elm City, a competition based on Food Network’s “Iron Chef” in support of Gateway Community College’s culinary program.

After the secret ingredient was unveiled, the chefs had to create an appetizer, entree and dessert using the ingredient, all in 1 hour. We invite you to enjoy a meal at John Davenport’s Restaurant prepared by our own Iron Chef Champion.  View the Iron Chef video +
