QUEBEC -  Hilton Quebec Banquet Server Marc-André Bédard is miles away in Vancouver this February, but his hotel team mates are with him every step of the way. Allegro restaurant at Hilton Quebec offers diners a unique opportunity to support the hotel's favorite Olympian.

Allegro Restaurant offers an Olympic-themed menu with flavours from participating countries that also highlights local products. Salmon gravlax, caviar blinis, Sichuan's soup, buffalo burger, beer sauerkraut, cassoulet of duck and lobster stew are just some examples of the menu diversity. Diners may choose their favorites and savour these international dishes.

By ordering the dish identified with the Biathlon Canada's colors, guests contribute to the success of Marc-André and his team. For each order of this meal, Allegro will donate $2 to Marc-André to help finance his preparation and training for the Olympics.

Bédard began competing in biathlon in 2000 after being inspired to take up the sport by Canadian biathlete Myriam Bédard. In 2008, he was named Biathlon Canada Male Athlete of the Year. Bédard competes in the Men's 4x7.5 km Relay scheduled Feb. 26 at 11:30 a.m. PST.
