The newest upscale eatery at Disney Springs, Jaleo will debut this winter. The restaurant will bring the flavors of Spain to the Walt Disney World resort by acclaimed chef José Andrés. “Jaleo” is the Spanish word for “revelry” and the plan for the venue definitely fits the name. Disney just released concept art for the 22,000 square foot restaurant and it features some exciting architecture.
The amazing colors and iconography of Spain are the centerpiece in this massive locale. The building itself is inspired by the shape of an artichoke. It features a dazzling roof formed like the petals of the native Spanish vegetable. What’s really eye-catching about the space is the lack of solid walls. The building is open to the outside and features no straight lines in the structure or decor. Giving the space an organic feel. Juli Capella, principal at Capella Garcia Arquitectura, said of the design; “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,”.
Touches of wood and ceramic accent citrus colors like orange and lemon inside and out. This color scheme adds to the welcoming ambiance. Two terraces line the outside. These feature views of the Disney Springs promenade and the lake area. Terraces will be available as part of the private dining options. With the designs also came the announcement of a quick service concept window addition. The section will serve sandwiches and salads inspired by Spanish street food. The area will add a laid-back and open feel welcoming guests to relax among all natural materials.
We are sure Jaleo will become one of Disney Springs best new restaurants with these beautiful designs and vibrant menu. Hence we are excitedly anticipating the debut this winter. Be sure to check back for the opening date of Jaleo as we will share when it’s announced.
