Every year, the high end travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler publishes their Hot List of the world’s best new hotels. This year, one Orlando hotel made the list.
Only 60 new hotels were chosen, and the Four Seasons Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World made the list under the “Family Friendly” subcategory.
Yesterday afternoon we headed out to the Four Seasons Orlando Resort at Walt Disney World. It’s a stunning place, but we were there to check out the Four Seasons Food Truck, which made a stop at the resort as part of it’s east coast tour.
The menu was prepared by Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi of the resort’s Ravello restaurant, and had a distinctive Italian flair.
We tried several items off the menu. The first was Arancini al Brasato, a ball of risotto with braised short rib and peas inside, coated in breadcrumbs and fried. It just exploded with flavor in my mouth. Everything was well-balanced, and I could’ve eaten these all day. Thankfully we only had two in the order, and there were other things to try.
