Libbey launches luxury casual range

Libbey Foodservice brings the polished casual dining trend to the hospitality table with the launch of its new Syracuse China Atherton collection

The desired elements of fine dining – menu innovation, inviting tabletop, exclusive wine and cocktail offerings and high-quality service – combined with a more laid-back setting have been referred to as polished casual dining.

Add an organic, handcrafted yet elegant feel to casually sophisticated tabletops with the new Syracuse® China Atherton collection by Libbey® Foodservice.

“While the overall ambience of finer restaurants may have a more polished casual feel, customers still expect restaurateurs to extend the essence of fine dining to the table,” said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc. “The Atherton collection embodies classic elegance and features a dramatic accent to enhance striking presentations.”

“Amid a less formal environment, there still is a place for finer tableware to elevate the dining experience.” – Susan J. Dountas

A distinctive textured ring embossment adorns the rim of the Atherton collection, immediately and instinctively drawing the eye to the center of the plate. An addition to the broad selection of patterns in the popular Syracuse China Royal Rideau™ body colour, the coupe shape of Atherton expands the size of the plating surface without increasing the overall size of the plate. From its large plates, trays and bowls to its intricate mugs, cups and teapot, the 30-piece Atherton collection offers the right piece to accentuate creative dishes.
