In Florida’s first MICHELIN Guide, Knife & Spoon received the prestigious MICHELIN Star, and Primo was recognized on the MICHELIN Recommended List. Grande Lakes Orlando is overjoyed to welcome the inclusion of both Primo at the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes on the 2022 MICHELIN Recommended list, as well as the awarding of a coveted MICHELIN Star to its restaurant Knife & Spoon at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando.
The first MICHELIN Guide Miami, Orlando, and Tampa was released at an invitation-only ceremony on June 9 at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, where the prestigious awards were presented. Knife & Spoon at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, a distinctive steak and seafood restaurant created and run by award-winning Chef John Tesar, was recognized as one of the most eagerly awaited restaurant openings of the year upon its debut in 2020 by Vogue and The Daily Meal.
The restaurant offers a unique dining experience, presenting the best cuts of dry-aged meats paired with the freshest fish and delicacies available in the neighborhood. Chef de Cuisine Gerald Sombright is in charge of the kitchen. At Primo, which offers dishes created by award-winning Chef Melissa Kelly, diners can experience great Italian cuisine and organic food with a Mediterranean influence. As the restaurant reflects Chef Kelly’s philosophy of nothing is wasted and everything has a place, adopted at the Rockland, Maine location, Primo shines brilliantly with its fresh foods cultivated on-site at the Primo Organic Garden under the direction of Chef de Cuisine Eric Petrie.
These recent accolades for Knife & Spoon and Primo are only another example of Grande Lakes Orlando’s top-notch eating establishments. Grande Lakes Orlando is a 500-acre luxury resort development with two hotels that features 12 highly regarded dining establishments and functions as a stand-alone culinary destination.
