Il Mulino New York Opens At Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort
Il Mulino New York is pleased to announce its newest restaurant at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida, set to open early 2007. The acclaimed Il Mulino New York will offer its signature, superior dining experience in a more relaxed and vibrant setting at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Features such as Piatti per il Tavolo (family-style dining) and wood-fired pizzas complement Il Mulino New York’s family-friendly Orlando locale in a setting reminiscent of old-world bistro charm.
The menu at will consist of fish, chicken, fresh pastas and meats, characterized by rustic and hearty blends of seasonal ingredients drawn from the Abruzzi region of Italy. Signature items will include Gamberi al Mulino (jumbo shrimp with Il Mulino spicy cocktail sauce); Gnocchi Bolognese (potato dumplings with meat sauce); Pollo Fra Diavolo (boneless chicken in a spicy red sauce) and Branzino (seared sea bass, cooked with cherry tomatoes, garlic, pancetta, and white wine). The Abruzzese-inspired menu will change seasonally and be enhanced with daily specials and a selection of desserts.
All meals, which are presented by the apron-clad wait staff, begin with a complimentary antipasti tasting of sliced Cacciatorini sausage, sautéed marinated eggplant, garlic bread and a selection of foccacia and white and whole grain Italian loaves. A wine list including over 250 selections of Italian varietals that compliment the cuisine will also be offered. For a pre- or post-dinner cocktail, Il Mulino New York will feature a lounge with vibrant music and light fare.
Il Mulino New York brings full circle the world-class dining options available at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. The Orlando location offers a large kitchen and wine display upon entry. A softly illuminated wine bar with private outside terrace looks out onto an enclosed landscaped courtyard and fountain, and plush seating below a cloud of sparkling lights invites guests to sit and linger while sampling fine wines before or after dinner. The design juxtaposes fresh contemporary furnishings, materials and sleek glass partitions and custom lighting against the rustic textures of exposed brick, raw concrete, and wood floors to create a sophisticated Italian setting that one might discover on the outskirts of Rome.
Il Mulino New York boasts over 220 seats, and is available to be taken over for large private functions. Numerous intimate dining rooms will be offered for special occasions or smaller group events. Open seven days a week, dinner will be served from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., with the lounge serving up cocktails from 3:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. All major credit cards will be accepted.
