If you’re planning on leaving the Labor Day grilling to the professionals, we have a deal for you!
If you want staples like burgers and dogs, Disney has you covered. From the always yummy foot-long hot dogs at Casey’s Corner to the new burger and sundae bash at Restaurantosaurus, you don’t need to look far to find the classics. But if you want your grill grub with a bit more sophistication, head over to STK Orlando in Disney Springs, where they’re giving away FREE lil’ BRGs (their name for sliders!) this Labor Day weekend.
It’s been just over four months since STK Orlando opened its doors in Disney Springs.
We visited STK for dinner on opening night in late May. It gave us the chance to try a few signature dishes that STK restaurants around the country are known for along with offerings unique to STK Orlando. (For those unfamiliar with STK, this high-end steakhouse has locations in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, London, and San Diego, among others.)
In its earliest days, the restaurant opened for dinner only at 5:00 pm daily. However, lunch service kicked off about a week after opening, and we thought we’d take a little time today to show you what’s on the menu for lunch at STK, in case you’re interested in trying out this signature restaurant with a more casual, daytime vibe.
If you read our first review of STK, then much about the first page of the Lunch menu will look familiar to you.
Last week we gave you a First Look…
… and now we’re back with our full review of STK Orlando, the newest dining venue in Disney Springs!
STK Orlando is the latest addition to the list of Signature Dining restaurants in Disney Springs, which also includes Morimoto Asia and The Boathouse (with Paddlefish and The Edison still on the way).
But STK hasn’t only joined the dining line-up in Disney World — the Orlando location also joins fellow STK restaurants in New York, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and D.C., with more to come.
So let’s see how STK’s big city vibe fits into Disney World’s shopping, dining, and entertainment district with our first visit for dinner at STK Orlando!
If you checked out our First Look, you already know that STK Orlando is located in the The Landing of Disney Springs; however, the location is easily viewed from the area’s new Town Center. Here is the view as you approach from the Orange Parking Garage.
The exterior, therefore, fits right in while retaining its own unique look, with its resemblance to a refurbished train station from the early 1900s. [Read more…]
We’re already back at Disney Springs to take a First Look at STK Orlando!
Now, you might be thinking, “Wait a minute, I thought STK Orlando wasn’t going to open until May 25th?” And if so, you are correct — the newest Signature Dining venue joining the ever-expanding options in Disney Springs doesn’t open to the public until this evening at 5:00 pm.
But the DFB was kindly invited to a Preview event that took place last night. So while we are looking forward to dining there tonight and to bringing you our full review of our first dinner at STK Orlando soon, we couldn’t wait to give you a little sneak peek now 🙂 .
So welcome to this First Look at STK Orlando!
Though technically situated in The Landing of Disney Springs, STK Orlando is still very much visible from the new Town Center in its spot near Morimoto Asia and Planet Hollywood. In fact, the building’s exterior — built to bear a resemblance to a refurbished train station — fits in nicely with the early-1900s-era inspired setting that is the Town Center.
No matter whether you’re outside of STK or inside, it’s impossible to not be struck by how MASSIVE this place is, coming in at nearly 15,000 square feet! [Read more…]
We know we have a lot of great new arrivals to look forward to in Disney Springs very soon! May 15th alone will bring the debut of the new Town Center of the Springs along with the opening of four new eateries on the same day: Amorette’s Patisserie, B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co., The Daily Poutine, and Sprinkles.
But what about STK Orlando, the modern, high-end steakhouse set to open in The Landing of Disney Springs? It’s been a while since there has been any news regarding this spot which was originally slated for a late 2015 opening, then rescheduled for early 2016. With early 2016 officially past, we’re happy to report that there is talk swirling around this location once again, with Disney projecting an opening this summer. [Read more…]
