DOVER, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vigilant Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high-quality wine and cigar storage products, announced today the successful installation of custom wine display cabinets at the modern, “Torali Italian + Steak” restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago – located steps from Lake Michigan and The Magnificent Mile. The wine cabinets were designed and built as part of the hotel’s significant revitalization of their grand social venues, inspired by the iconic Chicago architecture.
“We were pleased to take on such a prestigious project for The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago where functionality and performance were just as important as the refined, contemporary style the property was looking for,” said Charles Griffiths, Vigilant’s owner and president.
The Vigilant team was motivated to create a wine cabinet that stood up to the high standards of The Ritz-Carlton brand. The elegant bank of cabinets were handcrafted to be the focal point for the 12th floor restaurant. The wine cabinets feature tall glass doors on both sides and are constructed of white-washed, clear white ash, creating a sophisticated display for the restaurant’s notable wine offerings. Sitting above the cabinets and hidden from view, are two state-of-the-art Vigilant wine cooling systems that quietly ensure the wine inside is perfectly preserved and chilled for guests’ optimal drinking enjoyment.
“The beauty and craftsmanship of our Vigilant wine cabinet is the center piece of a new Italian restaurant, “Torali Italian + Steak”. We are most impressed with the ability to display our selections of wine with dual glass side panels. While the dual glass feature is ideal for increased viewing and aesthetics, the wine cabinet’s functionality allows for controlling varying temperatures within each unit. The design of the wine cabinet display has expedited service and increased sales.” Stated Steve Serdar, General Manager of Food & Beverage Operations at The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago.
Refrigerated wine display cabinets have become increasingly popular within the hospitality industry because of their architectural elegance, functionality and ultimately their positive contribution to the bottom line. Vigilant has found clients that prominently display their wine collections to patrons dramatically increase their on premise wine sales. A Vigilant wine cabinet is also a stunning showpiece that can blend into any décor. For more information about Vigilant’s wine cabinets, call 1-888-812-4427 or visit www.vigilantinc.com.
