LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inspired by the diversity that comprises Los Angeles cuisine, Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is managed by Dallas-based Prism Hotels and Resorts, introduces three new and distinct dining concepts, unity la™ restaurant, market and bar. Incorporating the diverse and unique flavors from neighborhoods across Los Angeles, unity la menus include plates such as Drunken Noodles from Thai Town, Carne Asada from Boyle Heights, Fish Tacos from Santa Monica and Seared Scallops from the Sunset Strip.
“Food plays an important role in connecting and educating visitors in Los Angeles about the cultural richness of each community. Located at the gateway to the city, just steps away from LAX, we saw great opportunity to introduce travelers who may not be able to visit these neighborhoods during their stay, as well as locals, to the diverse flavors intrinsic to LA neighborhoods,” says Charles Fusco, executive chef at unity la. “Our team scoured LA’s neighborhoods, tasting the cuisine in each one, to create menus that introduce guests to our diverse and ethnically rich city – from traditional Mexican dishes to Asian-inspired recipes.”
Three distinct menus – one each for the restaurant, market and bar – provide guests with options to meet their distinct schedules and moods. Whether looking for a quick grab-and-go option at unity la market, a lingering meal with friends at unity la, or a lively environment to enjoy food and drink in a community setting at unity la bar, there is a venue for everyone.
A seated, full-service restaurant, unity la offers breakfast and dinner. With menu items that are designed to be shared among guests, it encourages visitors to experience an assortment of menu items and the diverse flavors of Los Angeles. Some highlights from the restaurant’s breakfast menu include Huevos con Chorizo complete with heirloom beans, Spanish rice and a local corn tortilla; Tres Leches French Toast topped with vanilla custard, sweetened whipped cream and Cajeta sauce; and the Churro Waffle with sweet cinnamon dust and Mexican chocolate sauce. Initial guest favorites from the dinner menu include Pork-Belly Ramen with wood ear mushrooms and a soft-boiled egg; Chicken Mole served with a sweet potato hash, red mole, cilantro and sesame seeds; Pacific Shellfish in a tomato broth with chile de arbol, avocado and salsa bandera; and Fish Tacos featuring a lime seared rock fish topped with cabbage, radish, salsa verde and cilantro. Completing the experience, the dessert menu includes authentic delicacies such as Buñuelos with vanilla ice cream, toasted almonds and Busy Bee honey, and Merengón complete with passion fruit curd and macerated berries.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the unity la bar offers a distinct menu with plates designed to be shared and enjoyed within the space’s casual environment, encouraging socializing among groups and guests. Highlights from the bar’s food menu include Queso Fundido with Chorizo mixed with Asadero cheese and house-made tortilla chips; Posole with Guajilo Chile broth, hominy and Kurobuta pork; as well as a Cold Noodle Salad with Bloomsdale spinach, Shiitake mushrooms, heirloom carrots, cucumber, Thai basil and a soy ginger dressing. The bar also offers American classics, including burgers, sandwiches and flatbreads. unity la bar offers seasonal handcrafted cocktails with a focus on spirits sourced from local distilleries, including Greenbar Distillery’s organic liquors. The bar also offers a thoughtful wine list with a focus on wines from California and a rotating selection of local craft beers on tap from breweries such as Three Weavers, Smog City and Eagle Rock.
For quick, around-the-clock food options, the café-style unity la market offers guests four distinct stations, including the Illy Café, an upscale grab-and-go station; a freshly prepared salad and sandwich station; and a soup and noodle station with on-trend items such as Ramen and Lentil Chili — all using regional products and the freshest local ingredients. unity la market is open 24 hours to accommodate travelers’ individual schedules and offers both a breakfast menu and an all-day dining menu.
“The Hyatt Regency brand is known for providing guests with regionally inspired cuisine and beverage offerings paired with anticipatory service to give guests an experience that is immersive and experiential to the destination,” says Jeff Rostek, managing director at Hyatt Regency LAX. “These new onsite restaurants come from the community, providing a uniquely LA experience to guests, making it good not to be home.”
Steps away from Terminal 1 and providing direct shuttle service to all terminals, unity la has become a popular location for greetings and goodbyes among loved ones who are traveling and seeking to avoid the LAX congestion. Whether enjoying a leisurely meal before a flight or cocktails to celebrate a traveler’s arrival, the restaurant provides the perfect environment away from the airport hustle.
