Acclaimed Chef Richard Blais will open Four Flamingos: A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen this December at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, located adjacent to Walt Disney World. 

A nod to the four species of flamingo native to the Americas and the bird’s tendency to gather and feast in groups, Four Flamingos will feature cuisine inspired by tropical flavors and ingredients from Florida, including native fruits, vegetables, seafood, and more.

Guests can “flock” to Four Flamingos for a menu filled with fresh Florida flavors, including stone crab, citrus, Mahi Mahi and more. Dishes will range from expertly selected pieces of seafood to signature steak cuts, offering the best of fresh-caught surf and fire-grilled turf. 

“Having family across the state of Florida and experiencing these incredible tropical flavors, I’ve wanted to do a Florida-inspired restaurant for a while. I’m thrilled we found the right opportunity at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress,” said Chef Blais. “I couldn’t be more excited to work with local suppliers for fresh, seasonal ingredients and create a menu that I want to eat, whether it’s for date night with my wife or with my kids as a family.”
