Disney Springs' next restaurants are opening this weekend. The Spanish restaurant Jaleo will open for dinner on March 17, while its quick-service sibling, Pepe by José Andrés, will open for lunch and dinner the same day.
The main restaurant will be the fifth and largest Jaleo location in the United States, but the first in Florida. The original location opened in Washington, DC in 1993 and the menu will feature "variety of authentic paellas cooked over a wood-fired paella pit, Spanish specialties like hand-carved Jamon Iberico de Bellota and wood-grilled Iberico pork, and signature dishes like Gambas al ajillo, shrimp sautéed with garlic and chili, and Pollo Croquetas, classic Spanish chicken fritters," according to its press release.
Pepe by José Andrés is the first permanent installation of the chef's popular DC-area food truck. It will serve Spanish sandwiches, gazpacho, and salads, along with sangria... "complete with sangria ice cubes to prevent any dilution of the drink in the Florida climate."
Jaleo will open for lunch service later this month. Reservations are available via OpenTable or by calling +1-321-348-3211.Tweet
