Riegel Linen Setting the Stage for a Fine-Dining Experience at Williamsburg Inn

Riegel Consumer Products ·19 February 2019
Aiken, S.C. -- How important is tabletop presentation to the dining experience? For Travis Brust, executive chef at the Williamsburg Inn in Colonial Williamsburg, Va., table linen and napery is an ideal way to put a restaurant's best foot forward when showcasing its food-and-beverage offering and the venue's impeccable service. The historic hotel's signature dining experience, the Rockefeller Room, celebrates contemporary fine dining and pays homage to the evolution of American cuisine. The backdrop for each culinary adventure is set by Riegel Linen."It is our desire to ensure that guests feel like we took every step we could to ensure that they receive an experience wrapped in luxury, refinement and true Southern hospitality," Chef Brust said. "We convey our desired modern fine-dining experience with Riegel. Their 100 percent long staple cotton linens dyed in a soft pink hue adds elegance to our plating presentation and it plays well with the room's color, lighting and ambiance. It's a subtle yet elegant way to arouse a diner's senses and get them excited for what is to come. The superior quality and soft-to-the-touch table linen and napkins selected for the Rockefeller Room invite diners to the table. In a word, it's 'Riegel.'"The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, which owns the Williamsburg Inn and five additional hotels within and surrounding the historic area, has been a satisfied Riegel Linen customer for more than 20 years. Cheryl Griggs, director of interior and exterior design for Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, said it's the company's outstanding customer service that makes it a No. 1 linen choice."When we set out to update the Rockefeller Room, we knew we wanted a natural-fiber linen that looked and felt luxurious," Griggs said. "Cotton has a better hand to it; the feel of the fibers is far better than what you will find with a synthetic. While there are quality synthetics in the market, our discerning guests can tell the difference between a poly blend and a natural product. There is an expectation of the Rockefeller Room and the Williamsburg Inn that needs to be met. Therefore, only a natural fiber tablecloth and napkin would do."It was also important to us from a design perspective to select a linen with detail in the weave without overwhelming guests with the pattern," Griggs said. "Because the Rockefeller Room has rose undertones in the carpeting, upholstery and drapery, we needed something with a hint of blush to add warmth to the room without reading overtly pink. Riegel's linen hit the mark. We love the way it adds to the room, and so do our guests."The Rockefeller Room pays tribute to American legend John D. Rockefeller Jr. whose generosity and philanthropy enabled the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation to preserve the historic city so that tourist today can enjoy its memorable history.Award-Winning DistinctionIn January 2018, the Williamsburg Inn was one of eight hotels added to AAA's prestigious Five Diamond List. Attaining a Five Diamond Rating is an exceptional accomplishment that signifies meticulous attention to detail, creativity in enhancing comfort, outstanding service and memorable guest experiences. In October 2018, Forbes Travel Guide named the Williamsburg Inn one of the World's Most Luxurious Hotels.The Williamsburg Inn offers guests classic elegance and sophistication, luxury accommodations, including a world-class spa and experiential culinary offerings. Visitors can expect lavish accommodations, extraordinary facilities and many personalized amenities. A full-service destination with world-class service and staff, the Williamsburg Inn offers exceptional dining at the Rockefeller Room on-site restaurant, expanded meeting spaces, an elegant event venue via the Regency Room, and the stunning Social Terrace, a 7,000-square-foot outdoor patio that offers drinks and delectable small plates while offering a spectacular view that features the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club."Riegel is honored and fortunate to be providing tablecloths and napkins to the Rockefeller Room at the distinctive Williamsburg Inn as part of its recent multi-phase renovation," said Riegel Linen VP of Sales Chris Gowdy. "We worked closely with Cheryl and her team to ensure that our linen would complement the design elements of the room - that marry tradition with contemporary architectural themes - also provide the ideal backdrop for Chef Brust's exceptional menu that pays homage to the evolution of American cuisine through innovative cooking and the infusion of exotic flavors. Dining at the Rockefeller Room is truly a culinary experience that diners will never forget, and we are delighted that Riegel can play a small part in its award-winning service and presentation."For more information on Riegel products, visit RiegelThe Riegel Consumer Products Division of Mount Vernon Mills, Inc. has been making Worry-Free Textiles Since 1838.

The Legendary Virginian, Curio by Hilton Hotel Reopens After 40 Years with Riegel Linens

Riegel Consumer Products · 6 November 2018
[ Johnston, S.C.-- Nov. 6, 2018 ] -- When the 105-year-old historic Virginian Hotel completed its recent four-year, $30 million renovation, management made sure that only the best linens topped tables in its ballrooms. As the biggest luxury hotel in Lynchburg, Va., General Manager Dennis Marcinik selected Premier Murata Air Jet spun polyester tablecloths and napkins by Riegel. Located at 712 Church St., the Virginian, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, has been a centerpiece of downtown Lynchburg since 1913."I have had the pleasure of working with Riegel for nearly 20 years throughout my career at various hotels I've managed," Marcinik said. "The quality of linen, variety of design and impeccable service is why the Virginian reopened with Riegel."Here, we do our own in-house laundry and we have our own press," he said. "The Premier collection is color fast, making it easy to wash and iron each time, every time. Its consistently proving to be a good investment, and our guests just love the color and the way the linens complement each event space. Riegel proves time and again to be a solid partner."Premier spun polyester by Riegel is made with Murata Air Jet spun yarn in both warp and weft direction. Like all Riegel products, Premier is made to not only look good, but also to thrive in industrial laundering environments giving users a great return on their investment via long linen life. Riegel's attention to detail in all aspects of manufacturing from raw material to spinning (yarn) to fabric formation (weaving) to colors (dyeing) to final cut and sew is one of many reasons Riegel is celebrating 180 years (1838) in business this year.Originally opened in 1913 as Lynchburg's premier grand downtown hotel, the property was closed in 1972. In May, the building was brought back to life, with workers preserving historic features like the classic staircase in the main ballroom and the intricate detail displayed on the pillars and walls. Today, the Virginian is an elevated event experience featuring more than 7,000 square feet of event space for meetings, conferences and receptions. Three F&B areas include the William & Henry Steakhouse, Skyline Grille rooftop dining, and Marigold grab-and-go outlet."Prior to the Virginian reopening, I walked the property with the GM to examine the design scheme and identify colors that would work best for the banquet areas and restaurants," said Riegel VP of Sales Chris Gowdy. "I also had conversations with the catering sales manager and director of sales, and together we looked at the entire food-and-beverage and laundering process. After sending color samples to the team, they determined Champagne to be the main linen color for table cloths and napkins with Black overlays as table accents. It's the perfect complement to the Villeroy & Boch china used in the banquet space, as it blends well with the charger plates, carpet and overall color scheme of the hotel. We are honored that Riegel is now part of this legendary hotel that has been fully restored to its original grandeur."For more information on Riegel products, visit

Michelin-Star Chef Opens 'The Hill' with Staff Clad in Craft Collection Aprons by Riegel

Riegel Consumer Products ·28 August 2018
Johnston, S.C. -- When Michelin-Star Chef Ben Pollinger opened The Hill restaurant this summer in Closter, N.J., front-of-house service staff greeted diners wearing crisp Craft Collection Bib Aprons by Riegel. Chosen specifically to complement the sleek-looking dining room and earthy, natural color palette of the overall design, the twill-weave apparel accents the venue's approachability. The aprons also provide uniformity, cleanliness, and functionality while identifying staff to guests."Prior to opening The Hill, we began searching for an apron that had a utilitarian look with a touch of rusticity," Pollinger said. "We wanted a fabric that would fit with the design aesthetic of the restaurant, which evokes Scandinavian minimalism with touches of industrial farmhouse decor. The Craft Collection was a great match."Pollinger said it's customary for restaurants to utilize aprons regardless if they are high-end, fine-dining establishments or ultra-casual neighborhood spots. What is trending today is the rustic utilitarian look. The Craft collection provides that look along with the convenience of being commercially-launderable."In foodservice, presentation is everything," Pollinger said. "Uniforms need to be easily cleaned, and they must continue to look crisp even as the garment ages. Craft Collection Bib Aprons easilyintegrate into our regular uniform and linen service. Initially, we were introduced to the collection as a potential kitchen garment. Upon further consideration, we decided it would work even better in the dining room, but it needed pockets for service staff to keep pens, wine keys, and their order-taking notepads. Riegel made sure our requests were met with ease, including customizing the apron with pockets."Pollinger, former executive chef of Oceana restaurant in New York City where he earned his Michelin Star, said he opened The Hill (located at 252 Schraalenburgh Rd.) to serve as a neighborhood hot-spot focusing on delivering a quality product in a familiar, fun and casual experience. Whether you stop in for a drink, dine on the patio or in the bar, enjoy a meal in the dining room or host a private function in the 56-seat private dining room, The Hill is warm, approachable and sure to meet its patrons needs."The Craft Collection epitomizes everything that Chef Ben stands for - Hospitality," said Riegel VP of Sales Chris Gowdy. "He believes that for hospitality to be done right, each diner must feel like they're the most important person in the room. One way to do that is to make sure that service staff are not just trained to take orders properly, but they must be dressed to impress."We are delighted that a chef of this caliber sees the artfulness and true 'craft' this collection was named for," Gowdy added. "These spun-polyester, denim-inspired aprons are ideal for new, cool or as my daughter says - lit -restaurants featuring fresh, farm-to-table ingredients and serving craft beers, great wine and refreshing cocktails. There are a lot of high-priced aprons in the market, but they are not suitable for industrial laundry. Not only do the belts, buckles, and plastic pieces break, but colors fade, and they are impossible to iron. We designed the Craft Collection to look good for a long time, wash after wash after wash."Compliments of the ChefChefs, restaurant owners or hotel owners inquiring about the Craft Collection will be entered into a drawing to win an autographed copy of Chef Pollinger's book "School of Fish." With more than 100 recipes organized by technique from the easiest to the most advanced, Pollinger takes readers through the ins and outs of baking, roasting, braising, broiling, steaming, poaching, grilling, frying, sauteing, and of course seasoning. In addition, he offers up terrific recipes for basics (like Homemade Hot Sauce and Fish Fumet); dressed fish (from ceviche to tartars); salads, pasta, rice, and sides (such as Salmon Salad with Spinach, Dill, and Mustard Vinaigrette); soups and chowders (including Gazpacho with Seared Scallops); and one-pot meals (like Caribbean Fish Stew and Thai-Style Bouillabaisse). To round out the seafood education, School of Fish includes a Fish-ionary, a Guide to Unusual Ingredients, and detailed step-by-step photos to complement the 100 photographed recipes.To enter the "School of Fish" giveaway, call Chris Gowdy at 434-579-3655 or click here.

Riegel Extending Table Linen Life with colorGUARD Technology

Riegel Consumer Products ·27 March 2018
Textile degradation is an ongoing problem in the hospitality industry. Whites don't stay white . . . stripes fade and bleed . . . and the colors Ivory, Sandalwood and Black and can be unstable. To prevent these problems, Riegel, a division of Mount Vernon Mills, has created Linen Life solutions, a worry-free textile program that uses colorGUARD technology to extend the lifecycle of the textile and ensure a color-rich product from the first wash to the last."Laundries have been dealing with shade variation since the beginnings of time," said Bob Pestrak, Riegel Linen Supply Sales Director. "When table linen starts to discolor, laundry facilities throw out the faded pieces or sort through similar colors to get bundles of napkins and cloths that match as best they can before delivering them to an account. Sorting isn't cheap, because it's highly labor intensive, and replacing textiles prematurely is costly as well. Sometimes, there is such a high degree of shade variation, that getting a bundle of the same shade is nearly impossible. Whites turn Brown or Yellow; mid-tone colors like Ivory, Grey and Sandalwood can turn a rainbow of shades after washing; and dark stripes on White bistro napkins fade. When the linens are placed on a table, even though they are all from the same color lot, the pieces look nothing alike. This makes for some very unhappy customers."With more than 180 years of combined fabric-engineering and laundry-processing service, Riegel's Textile Service team tested and analyzed its fabrics in their own government-certified lab to identify the root cause of textile degradation. After significant troubleshooting, the company developed Linen Life Solutions to ensure that:Whites Stay White - Riegel developed a proprietary application that makes it impossible for the color to get washed down. Think of a cross section of a carrot where the orange color is seen all the way through. That's Riegel's White!Bistros Won't Fade - As linen-less tables continue to become more popular, so has the demand for innovative bistro stripe napery (which Riegel was first to market with the spun-polyester version). These products are engineered with a variety of dark stripes on a White ground fabric so by their nature they are challenging textiles to process. Riegel would never recommend that a laundry wash White table linen with Red or Black, all in chlorine bleach, yet the bistros need to be processed like White table linen. Therefore, Riegel designed its Bistros with the best solutions so the stripes do not fade or bleed, and the White background fabric stays White. In addition, Riegel is first to market with reverse Bistros that are as easy to wash as solid colored table linen.Ivory, Sandalwood & Black are colorfast - Ivory is one of the most complex colors to create. There are multiple dye combinations that are used to create this shade. Some dyes are highly sensitive to residual sodium hydroxide and bleach when exposed to heat. Riegel recognizes that Ivory is processed like White with higher concentrations of chemicals to eliminate mold, mildew and stains, so the company created an Ivory that is stable and mitigates shade change.Likewise, consistency among the Sandalwood shade also has been a challenge; the dye combinations used to create this shade are highly sensitive to residual bleach when ironed. With Riegel's colorGUARD technology, Sandlewood shades, as well as Ivory and 30+ other color options, can withstand multiple washings and ironings and still retain their original color.Riegel has even solved wash down on Black polyester table linen with innovative dye solutions that only a textile manufacturer could envision."Riegel's commitment to service and excellence is like no other," said Chris Gowdy, Riegel VP of Sales. "We developed Linen Life solutions to protect our customer's bottom line, as these textiles look better, longer. Riegel's 100% MJS spun-polyester Premier and RieZerv table linens will last a minimum of 200 industrial washes when recommended laundering procedures are followed. Our Premier Murata Air Jet spun polyester has become the product of choice because it feels so good and lasts longer providing a better return on investment."There was a time when poly [polyester] was considered a foul four-letter word," Gowdy said. "I actually had a meeting abruptly end years ago when I showed filament polyester to a customer. But advancements in yarn configuration and dye trends have hoteliers re-thinking this fabric for restaurants and banquet facilities. Spun-poly feels good and it looks great. Today, it makes perfect sense in hotel banquets and restaurants."Riegel Recommendations:Some laundries are not aware that a solution for textile degradation has been developed, and until customers complain, laundry processes will be slow to change. With that in mind, Riegel is offering a few suggestions to help maximize the life of a hotel's table linen program:Boost Par Levels - When operating with low par levels, product goes right from the wash to the table. At a minimum a customer should have at least a three-par level; one in use, one in the laundry and one on the shelf.Love the Poly - Polyester table linens should last around 200 washings (more if they have colorGUARD); poly/cotton blends last 100-125 washings; long cotton staple lasts 75 to 100 washings. So, if you want linens to last, poly has the best ROI.Look for a Supplier with Technical Services Expertise - When choosing a linen supplier, insist on one that supports their product with technical services. Riegel's products, while innovative and built to last, can be damaged in the first wash if the laundry operator is not knowledgeable. Riegel has a team of experts in dyeing, chemicals and laundry processes that are available to all customers at no cost.When it comes to best practices, Riegel advises hoteliers to purchase table linen from a single source for product consistency. The supplier should engineer its fabrics with the best ingredients, have verified testing data, and provide customer references supporting the use and performance of their table linen.

Top 5 Advantages of Linens from the Mouth of a Linen Guy

Riegel Consumer Products ·15 August 2017
In the words of Rodney Dangerfield, "I'm at the age where food has taken the place of sex in my life. In fact, I've just had a mirror put over my kitchen table."Mirrors we say no to, but a nicely-ironed tablecloth, alongside freshly-starched and pressed napkins, evokes the memories of fine dining from days we hope have not long since gone away. While "fine" dining of old may be harder to find outside of the big cities, there are plenty of dining establishments that deliver fine experiences - think creative chef meets farm fresh ingredients meets local wines and other concoctions and it's a recipe for a grand night with family or friends.An essential part of any fine-dining experience is the table linen. Let's assume that we all agree that a cloth napkin is a must in any sit-down restaurant. Whether it's spun polyester, a cotton/poly blend, 100% cotton or even something crazy like 100% linen, the cloth napkin is not an expensive proposition whether it's laundered on premise or at an outside facility. As one of our colleagues eloquently said: "Just add a quarter to that $50 steak so I can wipe my mouth properly!" The tablecloth, on the other hand, is a costlier investment.Here are a few reasons why restaurateurs consider "stuffy" and "expensive" tablecloths (starting with irrefutable and indisputable facts and ending with the harder to prove, but you know it's true):Sound - Whether it's a five-seat spot or a banquet facility with more than 100 tables, all the clinking, clanking and clunking of utensils, plates and glasses are lessened by the tablecloth.Clean - Consider this scenario. The first party exits. Dishes are bussed away, old tablecloth comes off, new tablecloth goes on - Voila, clean table! Even the "show" of table changeover let's you know you're somewhere that pays attention to the details. A bar mop dipped in some unknown solution used to wipe off the table works in some places, but let's please not go there in your nice restaurant.Ambiance - The mood or character of a restaurant can be vastly improved via tablecloths. Use plain white for "fancy" environments, or table runners or other colors to accent the room or support a theme.Value - Back to that $50 steak; put it on a paper plate and see what kind of feedback you get. People are paying for the experience, not just the food. Don't be cheap. Putting down a nice tablecloth will go a long way towards creating a memorable experience, and subliminally, it is an easy way of giving guests a reason to want to return. Besides, that small cloth addition will enable you to charge a little extra too.Beauty - Let's not forget how important it is to put your best face forward on social media. Making sure your tables look their best will help your customers to sell your restaurant on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more. With every post, the world is looking at your linen.There you have the main reasons to use table linens, as told from a guy who sells table linens. One more thing: tablecloths do cover up any dings or dents or other imperfections that have happened to your tables since they were new. We've noticed a linen-less trend starting to come back to linens for this very reason, especially in banquet areas where staff does not necessarily break down tables with white glove service.
