Spanish Restaurant prepares to open at Disney Springs

inline imageJose Andres' ThinkFoodGroup, in collaboration with renowned Spanish design firm Capella Garcia Arquitectura, revealed details of the striking design of the beloved Jaleo brands newest location at Disney Springs. Opening this winter, the 22 thousand square foot restaurant will be Andrs largest to date and will bring the spirit and flavors of Spain to Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Based on the colourful iconography of Spain, the architectural form of the building is inspired by an artichoke, a vegetable native to Jose's homeland. The artichoke structure opens up, inviting guests to enter and experience the very best of Spanish cuisine. The petals themselves form pergolas, which extend toward the outdoors. The freestanding, two-story building lacks solid walls and is completely open to the outside, with large windows offering views of the lake while protecting diners from the sun. "There are no cubic forms, no opaque walls, no straight lines: here reigns a plant-like organic structure with its dynamic forms. An avant-garde, expressionist and welcoming architecture," remarks Juli Capella, principal at Capella Garcia Arquitectura, on Jaleo's design.

The interior features a double height central courtyard that visually connects the restaurants two floors. The idea of Jaleo, the Spanish word for "revelry," inspires the large, family-style gathering space, inviting guests to share tapas and sangria, gather with family at the foosball tables, or enjoy the more elegant central seating for paellas and grilled meats, anchored by the restaurants open kitchen and wood fire grill. Private dining options include two terraces, one overlooking the Disney Springs promenade and another overlooking the lake.

Typical Spanish colors of citrus, namely orange and lemon, offer a welcoming ambience alongside predominant touches of wood and ceramic materials. Stunning artwork includes the "Suit of Lights," an iconic photo of a bullfighter's suit from Spanish photographer Rafael Vargas, as well a collage of San Sebastian's popular Concha beach by photographer Ciuco Gutirrez, bringing the Spanish landscape closer to Walt Disney World Resort.

Occupying the front-corner of Jaleo and overlooking the main promenade of Disney Springs will be a quick-service concept serving Spanish street-food-inspired sandwiches and salads. The design of the casual restaurant features natural materials and a luminous, open feel, inviting visitors into the friendly space, which is centered around a large mural from Marc Jess, a famous painter from Menorca. With dynamic visual elements drawn from the culinary delights and landscapes of Spain, Andres and Capella aim to surround visitors in the culture of their native country and all its creativity.
