Jaleo, the modern Spanish restaurant conceived by renowned humanitarian chef José Andrés, opens at Disney Springs this Sunday.

The location opening on March 17 in Orlando will be the fifth Jaleo location in the U.S. and the first in Florida, according to a press release. It will also be the largest location yet at 22,000 square feet since Andrés opened the flagship location in Washington, D.C. in 1993.

The design of the Jaleo at Disney Springs is inspired by the artichoke and will feature an extensive menu of tapas that reflect the "rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine, as well as sangrias and a premier selection of Spanish wines," the release says.

The delicious food highlights include:



- A variety of authentic paellas cooked over a wood-fired paella pit
- Spanish specialties like hand-carved Jamon Iberico de Bellota and wood-grilled Iberico pork
- Gambas al ajillo, which is shrimp sautéed with garlic and chili
- Pollo Croquetas, which are classic Spanish chicken fritters.

Next to Jaleo will be Pepe, the first permanent brick-and-mortar location of the popular Spanish food truck started by Andrés.

The menu at Pepe's will include Spanish sandwiches known as bocatas, gazpacho and salads, as well as Spanish sangria with sangria ice cubes.
