Shutters on the Beach is hosting a special Hanukkah Experience


For the first time in its 12-year history Shutters on the Beach is hosting a special Hanukkah Experience. On December 26, the first day of Hanukkah, guests can celebrate in luxury on the shores of Santa Monica Bay.

Shutters' Hanukkah Experience includes overnight accommodations and a gourmet, traditional Hanukkah dinner by Fermin Arias. Arias, who applies his craft at One Pico, Shutters exclusive beachfront restaurant, brings with him years of experience at several of San Francisco's most acclaimed restaurants, as well as a genuine enthusiasm for the California lifestyle and culinary experience.  'My first project at One Pico was to create a seasonal menu,' says Arias. 'I wanted to make it more Californian, embracing the produce and herbs from area farmers. There is an incredible selection of fish, fruits and vegetables as well as top quality meats available to us on the West Coast". At his previous post as executive sous chef at Campton Place in San Francisco, he was part of a team that earned the distinction of a four-star rating and a James Beard nomination. Prior to that, Arias had successful stints at the Inn at the Opera and Mulhern and Schachern, also in San Francisco, and Boston's Bello Mondo, Gourmelli's and Barrett's.

For this year's festive foods, Arias will serve a three-course traditional Hanukkah feast on Dec. 26, to satisfy even the finicky gastronomes in the family. Old Fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup or a Winter Beet Salad with Butter Lettuce and Tarragon Vinaigrette whets the palate for an entree of Slow Roasted Beef Brisket with Potato Pancakes and Apple Sauce or a Roasted Rosie Chicken with Savory Kugel and Vegetable Latkes.

For $295 per night, guests can escape from the stressful holiday season in one of Shutters' well-appointed rooms. Freshly re-invented this year by renowned interior designer Michael S. Smith, the rooms continue to evoke a sense of comfortable beach luxury with updates including in-room reading libraries, and fine textiles and furnishings.

Before retiring to Shutters' welcoming rooms and quaint conversation areas or for a stroll along Santa Monica's Promenade, guests can complete their Hannukah dinner with Apple Strudel and Cinnamon Ice Cream. For added holiday indulgence or a refresher before the festivities, guests can visit ONE, the Spa at Shutters on the Beach, which surrounds them with more of Michael S. Smith's tranquil interiors as they enjoy the famed Ole Henriksen's signature treatments.

Conveniently located eight miles from Los Angeles International Airport and within walking distance of some of L.A.'s most fashionable shopping areas, Shutters offers Hanukkah celebrants everything they could need for a stress-free holiday. Valid December 26-27, 2005, with a two-night minimum stay, based on double occupancy. Guests can call 800.334.9000 to make a reservation for Shutters' Hannukah Experience, or contact the hotel directly at 310.458.0030.
