This past week, First Watch launched their new fall 2021 menu. Their menu changes quite often – approximately every 9 weeks – so make sure to visit soon to make the most of the menu before the dishes rotate out again.
September is here, and fall is in the air – and that means – pumpkin season! Pumpkin pancakes are back and they brought some fall harvest themed friends.
First Watch’s Chef Shane Schaibly, Corporate Chef and Vice President of Culinary Strategy of First Watch, notes that, “Fall is one of my favorite times of year and it’s all because of the rich flavors it brings!”
“Our menu this season pulls in hearty, robust ingredients like braised beef short ribs, roasted mushrooms and truffle oil and robust butternut squash. And of course it wouldn’t be Fall without pumpkin, which is why I’m so excited that in addition to bringing back those iconic pumpkin pancakes, we’re adding sweet, fluffy pumpkin spiced donuts into the mix too!”
Earlier this spring, First Watch, opened their newest eatery this morning in the heart of Winter Park at 140 N. Orlando Ave. The new location marks the 21st restaurant for the company in the greater Orlando area.
Part flagship, part prototype evolution, the Winter Park restaurant is a thoughtful response to drastically altered customer preferences that evolved over the past 12 months.
Among the new features are: Dedicated Take-out & Delivery Entrance, A 360° Indoor/Outdoor Bar & Cocktails, Expansive Patio & Outdoor Lounge seating, and a spacious interior with new design elements. You have to visit soon to check out all the new features.
