Martha Stewart's in town

Posted by on May 29, 2009

This kitchen is the underlying reason for more hubbub and kitcheninnuendo than you can imagine.  Yes, it’s stark and naked counters seem to warrant far less speculation.  It’s devoid of human life, of the hustle and bustle that a chef would command in the pre-evening hours of dining.  This den of stainless steel is the heartbeat of the newly remodeled and renovated Rough Rider Hotel.  And just why is the town abuzz ?  Because Martha Stewart is in town to help christen the new facility and place her blessing of haute cuisine on this gem of north central America.  The Rough Rider Hotel was originally constructed in 1885 in anticipation of the boom in Medora as a result of the meat packing plant built by the Marquis de Mores.  Along with the new stagecoach line and other businesses, Medora was planned to be a boom town. In 1903, the hotel name was changed to the Rough Rider in honor of Teddy Roosevelt’s famed horsemen and their service in the Spanish-American War.  Throughout the years the hotel was owned rrhotel1and operated by several different families. Over the years the hotel fell hostage to age and weathering. Following the 2008 tourist season came the moved to renovate and update once again. However, wiser heads prevailed and the hotel’s look and appearance was chosen to keep the spirit of the West and history intact. Real wood was the option over vinyl and you can see this was in the best interest of we as a people. Only nine new rooms are opened at the present time with the hotelroom1remaining 68 scheduled for the spring of 2010. As you can see the diggs are a far cry from the era of the woolen frock and chamber pots of Theodore Roosevelt.  Last evening the TRMF (Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation) hosted an open house for all of we 300 strong employees to view the new hotel.  The hors d’ ouvres were sublime and the camaraderie was memorable.  We had a wonderful time followed by a bevy of friends joining us later in the evening for my ever-present nocturnal campfire.  And you can bet your pants that tomorrow I will adorn myself with my CBS cap in hopes of getting close and placing Martha Stewart in front of my lens.  If so, you’ll see her here.hotelinside1
