Jaleo Disney Springs Now Open

April 2019

José’s ThinkFoodGroup is proud to announce that Jaleo has opened its newest location at Disney Springs, bringing the spirit and flavors of Spain to the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. As the pioneering brand that popularized tapas in the U.S., Jaleo at Disney Springs is the fifth Jaleo location in the U.S., the first in Florida and the largest location to date.

The new Jaleo features an extensive menu of tapas reflecting the rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine, as well as sangrías and an impressive selection of Spanish wines. Highlights include a variety of paellas and other rice dishes cooked over a wood-fired paella pit, Spanish specialties like hand-carved Jamón Ibérico de Bellota and wood-grilled Ibérico pork, and signature dishes like Gambas al ajillo, shrimp sautéed with garlic and chili, and Pollo Croquetas, classic Spanish chicken fritters.

On the restaurant’s front corner adjacent to the Jaleo entrance is Pepe by José Andrés, the first brick and mortar location of José’s popular Spanish food truck, which has been a D.C. fixture for more than six years. Pepe by José Andrés offers a diverse menu of Spanish sandwiches, or bocatas, both hot and cold, as well as gazpacho and salads to go.

Designed by renowned Spanish designer Juli Capella, the architectural form of the building housing both Jaleo and Pepe is inspired by the bold, playful nature of Spanish design. It features petals that open organically, inviting guests to enter and experience the very best of Spanish cuisine.
