HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Jan. 22, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Hard Rock International has received top accolades in the 2019 Porthole Cruise Editor-in-Chief Awards. The annual awards featured in Porthole Cruise Magazine are hand-selected by editor-in-chief Bill Panoff and celebrate his favorite experiences from around the world based on service, quality and memorable moments. Hard Rock Cafe's new Steakburger, made from a signature blend of Certified Angus Beef®, was recognized as "Best Burger" and Hard Rock's newly-opened cafe, Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood, received "Best New Restaurant."
"Being awarded 'Best Burger' and 'Best New Restaurant' by Porthole Magazine, is a testament to the Hard Rock Cafe experience, and the quality and taste of our new Steakburger, which we are excited to roll out to additional cafe locations this year," said Stephen K. Judge, President of Cafe Operations for Hard Rock International. "At Hard Rock we pride ourselves on providing our guests with a one-of-a-kind dining experience and a commitment to serving fresh, high-quality ingredients. Therefore, being celebrated for this pledge with our new Steakburger is truly rewarding."
"My work with Porthole Cruise Magazine brings me all over the world to enjoy every imaginable kind of culinary experience," says Bill Panoff, Porthole's editor-in-chief. "It was so refreshing to find such world-class quality in a venue that's so close to home, and so close to the heart of the cruise industry here in South Florida. Anyone cruising in and out of Port Everglades or PortMiami would be delighted by a meal at the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood."
Hard Rock's Steakburger elevates the burger experience for the brand and further reinforces Hard Rock's commitment to fresh, quality ingredients. Made from a signature blend of Certified Angus Beef for maximum flavor and freshness, the Steakburger replaces the previous burger and is the new standard for Hard Rock's burgers, including the world-famous Original Legendary® Burger. Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood and Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City are the first locations to feature the brand's new Steakburger, which will be rolled out to additional cafe locations later this year.
The recently opened Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood reflects the modern vision for Hard Rock and brings to life the evolution of its restaurants. The cafe showcases an open kitchen concept with cutting-edge equipment and the brand's new design style. Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood also features a 7-foot artisanal brick pizza oven and a meat grind room, where Hard Rock Cafe's new Steakburgers are made fresh daily. Hard Rock Hollywood includes memorabilia from today's contemporary artists such as John Legend, Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga alongside classic icons including Elton John, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince and more.
