HOORAY!! Its official! ThinkFoodGroup has announced the opening date for Jaleo by Chef José Andrés in Disney Springs.
Jaleo will begin serving dinner on March 17th. (Lunch service will begin later in the month.) Pepe — the counter service component of Jaleo — will be open for lunch and dinner on March 17th as well, with no reservations needed.
To make a reservation at Jaleo, you may call (321) 348-3211. (Our experience is that the number is not currently actively accepting reservations, but should be shortly). OpenTable reservations will be accepted for Jaleo on opening day once they open up on the website as well.
In today’s announcement, ThinkFoodGroup shares: “Jaleo at Disney Springs will feature an extensive menu of tapas reflecting the rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine, as well as sangrias and a premier selection of Spanish wines. Highlights include a 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.
Pepe by José Andrés will offer a diverse menu of Spanish sandwiches, or bocatas, both hot and cold, as well as gazpacho and salads to go. The quick-service location will also sell delicious Spanish sangria, complete with sangria ice cubes to prevent any dilution of the drink in the Florida climate.”
We’re very much looking forward to welcoming Jaleo to the Disney Springs dining scene! How about you?
