The ONE Group and ICRAVE, a New York-based design studio, teamed up to design the latest STK restaurant, this one in Orlando in Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Inspired by Florida’s waterfront towns, STK Orlando features a second-level terrace overlooking The Landing neighborhood at Disney Springs and boasts a nearly 15,000-square-foot building reminiscent of a refurbished 1900s train station.
The spacious steakhouse features indoor and outdoor seating, a bistro, a bar, and private dining rooms as well as outdoor terrace spaces on both the ground and second levels.
At STK’s main entrance is its first sidewalk promenade, featuring large, retractable glass windows that open up to the outdoors. Inside, the main bar area will feature dark-wood flooring and furniture juxtaposed by both a white marble bar top and a suspended array of sculptural white baffles with intermittent hanging Bocci pendants.
Large banquette and booth seating in STK’s trademark styles will offer guests an intimate and social experience in the main dining area. Perhaps one of the most eye-catching elements will be STK’s iconic wall feature — an array of ceramic longhorns laid out to resemble an eyelash.
On the second floor, STK’s outdoor dining area flanks a central bar and interior space. The second-level terrace takes on a more relaxed feel than its lower-floor counterpart with upholstered accents, blasts of color, bold artwork and overhead festoon lighting. The two-story, open-air turret features a lounge with a fire pit and unobstructed views of the surrounding area from every angle. The two-story tower was designed to serve as a beacon for the entire Disney Springs complex, drawing guests to the new landmark location.
STK Orlando joins a portfolio that includes restaurants in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Miami.
