Cambria Suites revamps banquet and events menus

Choice Hotels International brand Cambria Suites is revamping its banquet and events culinary program under the leadership of Chef Michael DeMaria.

Working out of the brand’s national training kitchen, which will be located at the Cambria Suites Phoenix-Desert Ridge in Arizona, DeMaria and his team are aiming to bring a new level of sophistication to the group business sector with banquet and events menus that offer flexibility as well. New selections include hors d’oeurvres like mushroom-and-basil meatballs with morel sauce in white spoons, martini-glass salads with a beet-and-goat-cheese combination and half-cut burgers on a carving block display.

“Transforming the urban a la carte menu into the banquets and events selections allows Cambria Suites kitchens to dish out high volumes of exceptionally prepared, mouth-watering dishes while positioning the staff for success,” DeMaria said. “Guests will enjoy their favorite signature plates while meeting and event planners will enjoy the exceptional value.”

Cambria Suites currently has 18 U.S. properties open and 26 in various stages of development.
