This month the HX:Expo in New York celebrated it’s centenary with a major revamp. Quality and commitment remain paramount for the most important trade show in the North America’s hospitality industry, but the show is looking forward to the next 100 years with the introduction of a new layout, live presentations and panel discussions.
Many awards were presented throughout the show including the ‘Foodservice Pioneering Concept’. The proud winner of this award was Bienvenu, a collaboration between Architectural firm Bruner/Cott and foodservice design and consulting firm Colburn & Guyette of Massachussets.
Bienvenu is a mobile Tapas & Wine Bar – a silently unfolding table which transforms into a bar with seats, POS counter, cold display case and a wine bar.
The concept, serving a minimalist menu of a dozen or so small-plate selections is completely self-contained with the exception of a roll-in, roll-out under counter refrigeration unit (to store in the host site kitchen). Bienvenu folds away completely when the unit is closed.
“Bienvenu is a concept that can fit a niche in a variety of settings. Its upscale, minimalist approach provides an ‘out of the box’ option to grab-n-go customers, where they can stop and relax with a glass of wine and small plate for a while and then be on their way again”

What do you get if you cross traditional Cajun cuisine with fine dining? According to Lake Charles chef and entrepreneur Andrew Green you get the brand new 1910 Restaurant! Named for the great 1910 fire, the vision for his ‘wine bar and fine dining restaurant’ is a fusion of the best of both of these worlds given a new twist of Green’s own originality. Green hopes that 1910 will put Lake Charles firmly on the culinary map following in the footsteps of LA’s renowned food hotspots, Lafayette and of course, New Orleans.
The Lake Charles native has certainly done his homework and one thing he has learned is that generally, customers prefer to drink wine by the glass. There will be a strong focus on pairing wine with his locally inspired dishes. With this in mind, 1910 has installed two Enomatic Elite 2.5 8 bottle dispensers behind the bar. The dispensers take pride of place and offer diners the opportunity to sample a range of up to 16 wines.
Doors are now open so go along to 1910 and enjoy some Lake Charles hospitality, fusion dining and a glass or two of perfectly poured wine from Andrew Green and of course, Enomatic!
