Knife & Spoon celebrates Michelin star win with special four-course menu through June 17

In celebration of achieving Michelin stardom for the second year in a row, Knife & Spoon, the upscale steak and seafood restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando, is offering a special four-course menu now through June 17.

Tyler Kineman, chef de cuisine for John Tesar, the Dallas-based celebrity chef, has put together a table d’hote with each course offering two choices. And there isn’t a clunker among them, with such favorites as hamachi crudo, fresh local oysters, whole fish and prime New York strip steak. (See the full menu below.) There is an optional wine pairing, as well.

Cost of the four-course dinner is $180 per person; the wine pairing is $90. My recommendation is for couples to order each alternate choice so you can get a taste of everything, for the win.

Of course the regular menu will be available, too, so you can see why the Michelin inspectors were moved to award Knife & Spoon a star, one of only four Central Florida restaurants so honored.

Knife & Spoon is open for dinner daily. Click here for more information and to make a reservation.
