Duvall Street Shrimp Scampi:

Savor the flavor of the islands at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress and enjoy Hemingway’s Signature Summer Pre-Fixe Menu.

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to taste the summer menu at Hemingways. As our group walked across a small bridge that connects the restaurant from the hotel, we arrive to an entrance tucked next to a tropical waterfall. Feeling like I just walked into a secret hiding place, the old fashioned interior of the restaurant reflects a literature-inspired environment with floor-to-ceiling windows that has spectacular views.

The summer menu was a showcase of fresh ingredients this season and every bite was delightful. Designed by Executive Chef Kenneth Juran, the three-course menu is available in July and August and features many of “Papa’s” seasonal favorites including:

  • Key Lime Caesar Salad
  • Florida Rock Shrimp Chowder with Zellwood sweet corn
  • Hemingway’s “Cayo Hueso” Crab Cakes
  • Duvall Street Shrimp Scampi featuring jumbo tiger shrimp
  • Cuban Criollo Chicken seasoned with a blend of fresh herbs and spices
  • Crispy Black Fin Snapper served with a coconut yucca cake
  • Key Lime Tart or Peanut Butter Bombe for dessert

Juran says. “Each course was designed to capture the essence of the islands and provide guests with a truly delectable experience.”

Starting at $64 per couple, the three-course #FlavorsOfSummer menu may also be paired with Canvas wines for $89 per couple.
