Visitors to our poolside eatery are in for a treat this month.
Solara Resort’s fantastic clubhouse restaurant, Solstice, is releasing a new and improved menu to coincide with the Spring/Summer travel season. The restaurant will now be open until 7 pm and is sporting a new take-out option, allowing more guests to swing by for a bite after a long day enjoying Orlando’s unrivaled attractions. The new menu is extensive, but it’s worth taking the time to preview a few highlights below.
Don’t worry, everyone’s favorite midday snack—the Firecracker Shrimp—are back and zesty as ever! This starter’s sweet and spicy sauce always keeps guests coming back for more, and now Solstice is introducing a counterpart to try alongside it, the brand-new Coconut Shrimp. With a distinctly more tropical taste, the Coconut Shrimp’s new pineapple chili sauce is sure to develop its own dedicated fanbase to parallel the Firecracker Shrimp. Let’s hope the two camps keep civil and form a consensus by ordering a basket of each!
Next up, for lighter—but no less substantial—fare, try our new Luau Salad. This Hawaiian-inspired dish is packed with flavorful greenery like mangos, pineapple, strawberries, tomato, cucumber, red pepper, and cilantro. The chilled Thai peanut glazed chicken makes for the perfect Eastern-style protein, and the sesame ginger dressing coating the entire salad will leave you wanting more.
Another new appetizer option setting the Solara foodie scene ablaze are the Dubliner Rolls. Hearty comfort food that goes great with a tall brew and friend to share them with, these crispy rolls are packed with corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Dijon. With a side of horseradish dipping sauce, our friends from the British Isles in particular will love the way this starter transports you back to your favorite pub across the pond.
Finally, what Floridian food destination would be complete without a slice of key lime pie to finish off a great meal? Solstice does not disappoint when it comes to this classic dessert. A creamy and tart filling, graham cracker crust and whipped cream with raspberry coulis makes this sweet treat one you won’t want to miss.
Returning fan-favorites to Solstice’s new menu include, but are not limited to, 14” hand-tossed pizzas (with a variety of toppings), scrumptious Mahi Tacos and the renowned Club Sandwich—the preference of this writer.
So, what are you waiting for? Come visit the Solstice Bar & Grille, conveniently located at the Solara Resort Clubhouse. You’ll find there’s no better place to stop and refuel before or after an adventurous day on your dream vacation!
