With LakeHouse, the Lake Buena Vista golf and spa resort offers meals and snacks in a refreshing space. It takes the place of Cascades, a lovely but dated restaurant that served hotel guests for three decades. The new concept is chef-driven and operates under the banner, "Thoughtfully sourced, carefully served."
And ... the food. That's why you're here. LakeHouse at Hyatt Grand Cypress serves both buffet and table-service breakfasts, plus lunches, dinners, bar foods, and midday snacks. That thoughtful/careful menu was cooked up by, among others, Executive Chef David Didzunas and Chef de Cuisine Steven Rujak. Their basic shtick: food that's familiar, but given a twist.
Here's what you'll eat.
Here's what to drink with your meal.
Entrees are priced from $16 fo a grilled cauliflower steak with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette to $34 for Boursin-crusted half rack of lamb with merlot butter sauce. The pastas run $16 to $19. Sushi rolls cost $9 for a vegetable roll to $19 for the Dancing Eel.
And then ... dessert.
Take a look at the strawberry shortcake. The made-from-scratch components are served in measuring cups, inviting guests to compose the dish themselves.
