Chef Jose Andres’ Jaleo opened on March 17th at Disney Springs, and we’ve got lots to show you! This is the fifth Jaleo to open in the US and the first in Florida. The first Jaleo, which means “revelry” in Spanish, first opened in Washington D.C., in 1993. Known for its lively setting and the best Spanish cuisine and design around, Chef Andres and his team offer a one of a kind tapas experience.
There’s a large menu posted outside the entrance where hungry Disney Springs shoppers can browse the plethora of authentic Spanish and Spanish-inspired cuisine.
The main dining room is bright and modern, decorated in the colors of the Spanish flag. Beading, mosaics, and murals accent the space and serve as dividers among the tables and the bar area.
The main space has two floors, and the upper seating area is open to the main dining room below. The vivid color scheme continues into each space, but never overwhelms. There is both booth, bar stool, and table seating.
There’s a large embellished Matador mural behind one of the many bars, that spans the height of both floors. Looks like the perfect place to grab a sangria! Bar-stool seating is available at the cocktail bars, as well as near the open kitchen workspace across the restaurant. Here you can watch as chefs use a wood-fired “paella pit” to prepare authentic paella.
Jaleo is best known for it’s Valencia Paella but will serve up two additional options nightly. One paella will be meat, and the other vegetarian, that will rotate daily.
Behind the main dining room, facing out into the West Side of Disney Springs is a quick service seating area for Pepe. Inspired and named after Chef Andres’ popular D.C. food truck, Pepe’s menu includes sandwiches, gazpacho, and salads to go. Pepe is open for lunch and dinner daily.
There’s also a sizable selection of merchandise for you to remember your visit to Jaleo. Including some of Chef Andres’ cookbooks, tumblers, water bottles, t-shirts and more!
Currently, Jaleo is only open daily for dinner beginning at 5:00 PM. Lunch service is expected to start soon as well. Reservations are available by calling (321) 348-3211 or visiting opentable.com.
