A few weeks ago, we gave you a first look at Knife & Spoon, opening at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes on October 7, and last week we were invited back for a preview of the restaurant’s dining experience.
Knife & Spoon is a new signature steak & seafood restaurant conceived and led by award-winning Chef John Tesar, along with Chef de cuisine Gerald Sombright. Its menu will celebrate the bounty of Florida on land and at sea, adding to the luxury resort’s already diverse collection of culinary outlets.
Knife and Spoon is a new signature steak & seafood restaurant that will be opening this fall at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, and I attended a media preview to get a first look at what to expect.
While at the Orlando Chili Cook-off last month, we met some wonderful folks from the seafood restaurant Fish of Fire. As a result of the conversation, we decided to try it for lunch on a Sunday after church.
This restaurant is in the out lot of a LaQuinta hotel near the Orlando International Airport. It feels more like it should be on the beach. This isn’t a bad thing, just that it’s a casual place, like the kind of laid-back seafood place you’d find on the coast.
It surprised us that they offered a brunch menu as their website didn’t mention it, but it had quite a few tasty options.
We ordered a brew basket with fried pickles, onion straws, and hush puppies for an appetizer. It came out fairly quickly, and the family ate it so fast, I didn’t even get photos. I guess we were all hungry after church.
