Art Work Representing The Matador's Cape

I had to start my post with this picture above. My amazing daughter Melissa came to visit me this year as she tries to do every year. Every year she surprises me with a night out. She puts a great deal of thought and research into where we’ll go to for our special mother daughter dinner. In the back of my mind, I knew it would be Disney related, and I was right. She chose the Four Seasons Orlando, 17th floor, Capa.

The picture I’ve posted above is where I want to start. When Melissa and I were first seated, I couldn’t help but to see this vibrant red color fabric. I’m thinking, is this some type of fabric that’s been pinned so perfectly, and hanging just above all of our heads, or is it some other kind of material. No matter, I couldn’t take me eyes off it. The fact that it’s portraying and representing the matador’s red cape flowing throughout the dining area was breathtaking.

Let me start from the beginning. Melissa and I are on our yearly mom daughter night out. It was a surprise she’d been planning for a while. It’s around 7:30 pm , it’s dark out, and the back streets of Disney property are lit up. We pull up to the Four Seasons Hotel Orlando.

It’s breathtaking!  Then we go inside and this is what we see.

After taking in the main lobby and peeking into other corridors like you see above, we head up to the 17th floor.

Here are a few shots of the dining area. The dining atmosphere is unique in that  it greets you with a casualness. There are a few separate dining areas, a lounge area, and, of course, the patio.

The Disney parks fireworks start at 9:00 pm so we were able to catch those out on Capa’s patio, while enjoying a glass of wine. I took a few more pictures, overlooking , from the 17th floor, of the Four Seasons Hotel, down to their property below, so awesome!

Wine Menu

Antoine, the Sommelier for Capa was so amazing! He took his time going over the different wines as if we were the only table in the restaurant. We told him what we were planning on ordering for the different courses and he recommended which wines paired the best with those dishes.

Antoine was so passionate about his job. I know this because we spoke about the terrible fires in the Napa, California area that had happened recently, and I could see the emotion and sadness he felt. He spoke about how there would probably be serious damage to the soil and to future grape vineyards in that area.

Our Amazing Server At Capa

This man you see in the picture above was our server Michael. He was attentive and very knowledgeable regarding specific dishes and ingredients. He helped us in making up our minds when it came to deciding on our choices of the different courses.

His timing in bringing the different courses throughout the meal was perfectly timed. This made for an amazing dining experience.

Capa's Kitchen

The courses ranged from Spanish Charcuterie and cheeses, Foie Gras, Wagu Beef Carpaccio, Shrimp- Egg Yolk-Chili with Celery Root Chips, Esparragos, to Rack of Lamb and NY Strip.

At this point, Melissa and I were so full we couldn’t even think about dessert. Not to worry, I have the menu for that below. There is also a picture of the two pastry chefs, they were so sweet. On of the coolest things of the night was that our table was located near them and we could watch them work their magic all evening.
