Epicurean Hotel - Now Open for Business !

The Epicurean Hotel in Tampa, Florida opens today. A partnership between Bern's Steak House (located opposite), and Tampa-based Mainsail Lodging and Development Group.

After nearly a decade in the making, the 137-room Epicurean Hotel has a restaurant, rooftop bar, wine store, pastry shop, culinary classroom, banquet room, pool and spa.

The $35 million project is the first built-from-scratch hotel in the United States to join Marriott International's Autograph Collection.

Central to the hotel is the Epicurean Theatre, a 40-seat culinary classroom with amphitheater-style seating and a kitchen for food presentations, cooking classes and iron chef competitions.

Bookings for New Years eve are already sold out!

Demand for the EB-5 visa project associated with this development is high.

The Epicurean Groundbreaking was a huge success! A sommelier is sabering a bottle of champagne while Joe Collier, President of Mainsail Lodging & Development addresses the delighted crowd.

David Laxer, Bern's Steak House owner and Epicurean Hotel Partner, shares a story during the groundbreaking ceremony.

The Epicurean Hotel opens & welcomes the first guests. The dream is now a reality.
