Delaware North’s Patina Restaurant Group continues to reopen many of its locations throughout the U.S. – including restaurants in Anaheim, Calif., New York City and at Disney Springs in Orlando, Fla. – just in time for springtime dining.
Two of Patina’s quick-serve concepts at Downtown Disney in Anaheim reopened for business earlier this week: Napolini Pizzeria and Taqueria. Located next to its sister concept, Naples Ristorante e Bar, Napolini Pizzeria is a recently refurbished grab-andgo Italian concept offering signature pizzas and customizable Neapolitan-style pies. Taqueria, adjacent to Tortilla Jo’s, features a build-your-own taco menu, as well as burritos, bowls and nachos.
Stella 34 Trattoria & Bar, located in the flagship Macy’s Herald Square store in New York City, is slated to open in early May, offering elegant Italian fare and creative woodfired pizzas in an airy setting.
The restaurant boasts sweeping sixth-floor views of the Empire State Building and is reopening just in time to be a part of Macy’s annual Flower Show.
The Flower Show is a two-week exhibition of exotic flowers and plants from around the world that transforms Herald Square into a breathtaking floral extravaganza. This season’s show is a gift to the local community for rising to the challenges of the last year with resilience and optimism. It also celebrates the promise of 2021 with beautiful blooms inspiring joy and hope for brighter days ahead.
Another one of Patina’s restaurants in New York City scheduled to reopen in May is Lincoln Ristorante. Located in a stunning glass pavilion beside Lincoln Center’s signature reflecting pool and Henry Moore sculpture, the upscale Italian eatery offers panoramic views, an open kitchen, a grass-lawn roof, and 2,000 square feet of brand new outdoor seating for guests to dine al fresco.
At Disney Springs, located outside of Disney World in Orlando, Patina’s Morimoto Asia will celebrate and honor Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month throughout May with a selection of culturally inspired food and beverage offerings. Featured dishes include an A5 Wagyu Loco-Moco, a traditional Hawaiian burger rice bowl, and a HaloHalo dessert – a Pilipino shaved ice treat with flavored jellies and fresh fruit.
Each menu item pairs perfectly with the specialty drinks, including the Morimoto Mai Tai, Japanese Old Fashioned, Toki Highball, Kona beers from Kona Brewing Hawaii, or the Sago at Gulaman mocktail.
Colorful décor and orchids will also adorn the dining room to add to the ambiance and overall guest experience.
