New Prix Fixe $35 Menu Features Guest Favorites and Surprises, Too
ORLANDO (Nov. 6, 2020) — While the saying goes all good things must come to an end, the team at the award-winning Jack’s Place at Rosen Plaza isn’t buying it.
On the heels of one of the restaurant’s most successful Magical Dining programs, which ended Oct. 31, the Jack’s Place chefs are letting the good times roll with the announcement of a new prix fixe menu at the program’s same affordable $35 per person, plus a few fun extras, available now through Dec. 20, 2020.
“Visit Orlando has created a wonderful opportunity for both restaurants and diners with Magical Dining, which we’ve been honored to participate in for 15 years,” said Rosen Plaza’s Executive Chef Michael McMullen. “This year’s huge response illustrated to us that now more than ever, locals and hotel guests are seeking some pleasure, as well as solace from the worries of our times, through an impeccable dining experience. Great food has always been a source of comfort. With ‘Dining with the Stars,’ we are extending the opportunity to enjoy a specially-crafted menu, which when accompanied by the Rosen standard of service and a few unique touches, should continue to provide just the right escape.”
Jack’s Place “Dining with the Stars” promotion extends a new three-course prix fixe menu at $35 per person, plus tax and gratuity, showcasing favorite dishes and a few new surprises from the restaurant’s revered selection of prime steaks and fresh seafood.
Starters include your choice of sesame crusted Ahi tuna, salt and pepper calamari, three-cheese baked onion soup or Jack’s House salad with candied pecans, poached pear and bleu cheese. Tantalizing main course options include grilled petite filet mignon accompanied with au gratin potatoes, macadamia breast of chicken with lemon caramelized onions and Italian five grain pilaf or Vesuvio shrimp pasta flavored with capers, Mediterranean olives, tomatoes and a splash of cream. Enjoy a sweet finish featuring guests’ favorite slice of award-winning Jack’s Key Lime Pie or decadent flourless chocolate torte. Or opt for Manhattan’s “Little Italy” affogato with a hot shot of Espresso gliding over roasted maple butter pecan gelato.
To further tantalize taste buds, guests can imbibe in a new curated Manager’s Wine List, each bottle just $25 (valued at $48 to $65 each) and selected as a refreshing, ideal accompaniment to enhance the flavors of the menu’s savory and sweet dishes.
Adding to the incredible cuisine and lively, spirited wines, one of Orlando’s most talked about restaurants features an unparalleled collection of hundreds of autographed celebrity “star” caricatures penned by Harris Rosen’s father, Jack, the restaurant’s namesake, during his time as a safety engineer at the Waldorf Astoria New York. Working there from the 1930s to 60s during the tony hotel’s heyday as a celebrity magnet, Jack created a collection that is a veritable “who’s who” of the day’s politicians, actors, sports stars, international dignitaries and more. JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, Babe Ruth, Salvador Dali, as well as the astronauts of Apollo 7, 8, 10 and 11, including Neil Armstrong, are among the collection, to namedrop a few.
Guests of Jack’s Place truly “dine among the stars” and in fact, are treated to “dinner and an art show” when taking time to peruse the unrivaled collection gracing the restaurant’s walls. For a preview, visit JacksPlaceRestaurant.com. Plan your dining escape on a Friday or Saturday evening and you, too, can become a Jack’s Place “star.” As a complimentary gift to dining guests, become the subject of your own caricature, penned by one of the Jack’s “artists in residence,” whose work of art is yours to take home. Just don’t forget to autograph your masterpiece before framing!
