Thursday night: Ceviche Tasting

You’re welcome to come early for a drink in deseo bar and live painting by the Westin’s resident artist, Nelson Garcia. The event takes place every Thursday, starting at 5:30 p.m. at the deseo bar. The tasting is $25, not including tax and gratuity. Price includes ceviche sampling and Champagne toast (to dine at deseo, be sure to make a separate reservation).
Saturday night: Chef’s Table
Feel like a true VIP with a four-course meal presented to you by Chef de Cuisine Roberto Madrid. Each Saturday, Kierland Epicurean Club members are invited to experience four dishes complemented with a perfect wine pairing and a formal introduction of each course by deseo’s chef Madrid. The chef’s table event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the deseo bar. $60, not including tax and gratuity. Price includes four courses and wine pairings.

And may we suggest, while you’re waiting for your event to begin, that you order up one of deseo’s famed muddled cocktails. Choose from the restaurant’s selection of fresh fruits (mango, pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and more) and herbs (basil, tarragon, mint and more) along with your favorite spirit. And even if you’re not a Kierland Epicurean Club member, you’re welcome to swing by deseo for Unwind…A Westin Evening Ritual. At Unwind, Westin creates a unique ambiance in the deseo lounge as the sun goes down. It’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy a specialty muddle drink and enticing ceviche. Unwind is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesdays through Sundays.
To celebrate the Spring season, executive chef Diego Bolanos at Z’Tejas has created a new season menu at all locations.
