While art takes on the role of centerpiece, Cultivated F+B spotlights the reimagined menu executed under the leadership of Director of Food and Beverage, Allan Levine and Executive Chef Fernando Huerta. Serving sophisticated contemporary American dishes that include the Deviled Egg Collection, Braised Short Rib Tacos, Fernando’s Chilaquiles and Cast-Iron Seared Scallops, Cultivated F+B is the ideal respite for a meal with friends, a power breakfast, pre-theater dinner or post-performance nosh and cocktail. Former menu favorites such as The Lancaster Bread Pudding, Lancaster Crab Cakes, Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Figs and the Crispy Pan-Seared Salmon are still available. The recently added al fresco café seating allows guests to enjoy their selections while immersed in the bustle of one of the nation’s largest theater districts.
Between the hotel lobby and Cultivated F+B is The Lancaster’s walk-up espresso bar, Speedy Boy Coffee, featuring barista service for guests and downtowners alike. Named after the winner of the “Pride of Houston” trophy presented by The Auditorium Hotel (now The Lancaster Hotel) at Galveston’s Greyhound Race Park on August 14, 1927, Speedy Boy Coffee features special blends and artisan creations daily.
