Orlando World Center Marriott recently opened its latest restaurant, Siro: Urban Italian Kitchen. Siro blends both an urban atmosphere and a rustic Italian kitchen offering everything from pizza to artisan cured meats and cheeses.
Open for early-evening light fare and dinner, Executive Chef Anthony Burdo presents a unique menu featuring dishes inspired by local fare, utilizing local in-season ingredients and maintaining Siro’s philosophy: from farm-to-fork. Siro’s early-evening menus feature artisan cured meats and cheeses, small plates and fresh market vegetables. While guests pick and choose from selections to start their meal, family-style sharing begins with breads and pickles served on oversized wooden planks.
The main entrée courses, changing with the seasons, include everything from thin-crust pizzas and house-made pastas to various meats and fish selections. These dishes compliment the restaurant’s drink menu, featuring handcrafted Italian classics from the Negroni and Aperol Spritz to the “The Artisan,” Lemoncello Martini, complete with fresh squeezed juices and fragrant herbs. Also available are selected wines, served by the glass and quartino carafes, as well as local craft beers.
Siro will accommodate 199 guests, 143 in the main dining room and 56 on the patio, for everyday dining and special events. The early-evening menu, from 4 to 6 p.m., features antipasti, small plates, pizza and blackboard specials, in addition to a full bar. Dinner, from 6 to 11 p.m., features a full menu including pizzas and pastas.
