Latitude Bar & Chill menu design is a creative team effort
It gets even better! Latitude Margaritaville residents have a big say in developing the restaurant’s appealing menus. According to Vice President of Community Hospitality and Lifestyle, Scott Gambone, “A unique ingredient of our menu design is that we periodically issue a menu survey to all residents, asking them questions like what they like to eat and drink and special qualities about their favorite restaurants. We then review the surveys and sit with the executive chef and Margaritaville culinary team to develop menus that are on brand with the Margaritaville lifestyle. The residents and chefs drive the menu based on continual resident feedback and survey responses.”
The next steps in menu design are to incorporate the chef’s vision, test recipes, taste items, and set the menu. Then there are multiple menu tastings. Sometimes the same dish is tested numerous times to perfect the recipe. When the items are perfected to the team’s liking, final recipe cards are created, and the chef practices preparing the dishes. A final tasting by leadership takes place before the items are offered to guests. The next step is to train the staff members who also taste every dish so that they can describe menu selections to diners.
An ever-fresh presentation of favorite mainstays and tasty specials
The Latitude Margaritaville main menu includes 25 popular items and a regular presentation of five to seven specials. It includes an exciting range of shareable items ranging from Latitude Nachos to Street Tacos, salads, wraps and sandwiches that include the amazing Latitude Burger made with a blend of prime beef, brisket and ground sirloin and served on a buttered brioche bun. In addition, there is an incredible selection of entrées ranging from Latitude Margaritaville House Fajitas to Catch of the Day. There also are lots of delicious weekly surprise specials.
To spice things up even more, there are many fun events and themed dining presentations. Some examples include National TV Dinner Day with classic homemade TV dinners served in a TV dinner tray, Talk Like a Pirate Week with Caribbean fish stew and pirate’s grog topped off with a Pirates’ Parade, Mardis Gras with a featured Jambilaya dish and more.
Beverage concoctions keep you coming back for more… It’s always 5 O’Clock Somewhere®!
The Latitude Bar & Chill concoctions menu is truly over the top in creative beverage presentations. To develop the enticing cocktail menu, the Latitude Margaritaville team worked with Margaritaville’s beverage manager to review the top selling drinks at Margaritaville resorts and hotels.
The result…concoction magic with cocktails such as the Chill Margarita, Last Mango in Paris, Island Dreamsicle, Key Lime Pie Martini, Don’t Stop the Carnival, Funky Monkey and many more. Some favorite resident concoction recipes are sometimes added to the menu and even named after the resident as well such as Linda’s Gin Fizz. Of course, the beverage menu also includes a great selection of reasonably priced wines and beers.
