Update: Although not announced in the Four Seasons’ press release, Plancha, the Cuban-American restaurant at the new resort, has also opened.
The Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort — that’s right, a resort within a resort — opens its newest restaurant to the public Monday, October 20. Capa, located on the hotel’s 17th floor, has a menu of Basque country cuisine.
The decor is meant to provoke a northwestern Spain and southwest France feel, too. The restaurant was designed by the Puccini Group of San Francisco, which also did the redo of the California Grill last year.
Capa’s chef is Florida native Tim Dacey, who returns to the state after cooking in several New York restaurants, including Reynard in Brooklyn, the Setai and the NoMad in Manhattan. In 2004, he cooked with the Four Seasons’ executive chef, Fabrizio Schenardi, at Tampa’s Pelagia Trattoria.
Capa will be open for dinner daily. It joins Ravello, an Italian restaurant, and PB&G, the Pool Bar and Grill barbecue specialty. Yet to open is Plancha, a Cuban-American restaurant. Watch for that one next month.
