Zack Bruell interprets cuisines from around the world, as diners vie for a chance to win a dream vacation stay at a global destination and other valuable hotel and restaurant prizes

Table 45, renowned for its world-fusion cuisine at the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland, has announced its new Cultural Celebration of the Month promotion and sweepstakes. The celebration is an eight-month promotion featuring a different international cuisine each month as interpreted through the culinary lens of Chef Zack Bruell.

Each month starting in October, the restaurant will feature cuisine from popular up-and-coming regions from around the world to create special menu options and events, including drink and wine tastings, chef’s table specials, and cultural awareness. Zack and his team at Table 45, will consult with chefs from other InterContinental Hotels from around the globe to offer authentic regional dishes.

Cultural Celebration of the Month kicks off in October, when Table 45 takes on the distinctive flavors of Cuba. November will celebrate Moroccan cuisine, followed by Israeli, Portuguese, Ethiopian, Peruvian, Taiwanese, and the Yucatan Peninsula. Each month carries a timely cultural significance.

“We are excited to offer these one-of-a-kind dining experiences,” says Chef Zack Bruell. “It’s a way for us to engage our local international communities and offer a variety of new tastes from around the world.”

Diners and other participants will be entered in a chance to win the Grand Prize of a five-night stay for two at any InterContinental Hotel property in the world courtesy of The InterContinental Hotels Group. First place wins a free two-night stay at InterContinental Hotel Cleveland, local limo transportation to and from the hotel and dinner for two at Table 45. Second place wins a free dinner for four at the famed Chef’s Table, and Third prize is a selection of international wines from around the world featured in the Cultural Celebration of the Month promotion. With each visit, diners complete and submit tickets in their World Tour Passport for increasingly more chances to win.

“This is more than a promotion,” said Bruell, “This will be an opportunity for us to create new food each month that people won’t see anywhere else in Cleveland. And it will be incredible.”

The promotion will last 8 months starting October 2016. In June of 2017, Table 45 will host a World Cultural Celebration Reception for frequent participants and will include the announcement of the Grand Prize Sweepstakes Winner from monthly entries.For more information visit:
