Loews Annapolis Hotel Announces WEST Kitchen & Tavern to Open on June 15

Coming soon to 126 West Street will be the hottest dining spot in Annapolis! WEST Kitchen & Tavern located at the Loews Annapolis Hotel will feature a hearth oven, fresh herb garden, plentiful raw bar, expo kitchen and Chef’s table for group dining experiences. Flexible dining spaces will include indoor and outdoor; private or communal; or bar and lounge seating.

Under the culinary expertise of Kevin Relf, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and Cornell University, the menu at WEST Kitchen & Tavern will be regionally and seasonally motivated. Chef Kevin will seek his inspiration through local farmers and partners in the greater Chesapeake Region.

“The menu will embody not only the flair of the Chesapeake Bay, but also embrace the venue’s rich history as the Annapolis Dairy Products Company,” said Chef Kevin Relf.

WEST Kitchen & Tavern will create a dining experience unique to Annapolis. From herbs picked fresh for an entree, soda siphoned tableside, brick oven flat bread made-from-scratch or oysters shucked-to-order; diners will remember, enjoy and want to return again and again.

A vibrant and inspired beverage program from renowned Tippling Brothers of New York completes the experience, with innovative, garden-fresh cocktails and a value conscious wine list that highlights sustainable and local wines.

“WEST Kitchen & Tavern is committed to the revitalization and resurgence of West Street,” said General Manager of the Loews Annapolis Hotel, James LoBosco. “We’ve created a place for the community to gather and experience the best Chesapeake-inspired cuisine in a casually refined ambiance all while creating a renewed vision on West Street.”

General Manager of the tavern, Stacy Baird will oversee the day-to-day operations of WEST Kitchen & Tavern. Prior to joining WEST, she opened The Chop House in Annapolis Towne Center.

“WEST is destined to become the community’s choice for dining in Annapolis…West is not just a direction anymore,” said Stacy Baird. “We will deliver service that pampers and delights with food that is local and inventive.”

WEST Kitchen & Tavern will be open daily offering breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as daily Happy Hour. Weekends will offer brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
