Occidental Grill & Seafood, the capital’s premier restaurant known for providing the best in food and hospitality, depended on ASPR for media relations support during a critical period. This historic restaurant, located two blocks from The White House, was looking for new ways to interest guests in its culinary twists on traditional items. ASPR raised awareness of the Occidental through innovative ideas such as the Presidential cookie contest, a “Bring Back Seersucker Thursday” event and a charity concert with legendary CBS News journalist Bob Schieffer. 

The Occidental has also recently received praise from The Washington Post food critic and others.
