The JW Marriott at Grande Lakes Orlando quietly opened its lastest restaurant a few weeks ago. Whisper Creek Farm: The Kitchen was designed to showcase ingredients from the on-site 7000-square-foot garden. Located inside the front door of the hotel next to the lobby, WCF:TK is not meant to provide a full restaurant experience but rather will offer small plates, sandwiches, charcuterie and such. The Kitchen seats 100 indoors and 50 on the outdoor terrace.
In addition, The Kitchen will feature beers from the hotel's new nano brewery. Don't go looking for the brew tanks in the restaurant, however. They're located in a small room back in the hotel's vast kitchens. I got a sneak peek a few weeks ago (see some photos below).
I'll have more on Whisper Creek Farm: The Kitchen and Whisper Creek Farm: The Brewery next week.
The new restaurant is open for dinner daily.
